My Take - Carnival Craze

Good morning!  The Curtain Call Crew gals and I have a brand-new inspiration for you called Carnival Craze over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

What's even better than a beautiful inspiration about a fabulous sponsor?  Lawn Fawn generously provided all of the crew gals with a choice of stamp set to use for the challenge today...and, will give away a choice of stamp set to the LEAD of the Carnival Craze challenge!  Thanks so much, Lawn Fawn!

I used this wonderful stamp set called Blue Skies from Lawn Fawn...I adore the jumbo hot air balloon, the other fun element-like images and scripted sentiments!  There are even coordinating dies for this cool set!

The retrosketches #76 was the perfect layout to feature that jumbo balloon and the Addicted to CAS: Summer theme worked well, too!

You can get those fabulous Lawn Fawn stamps and dies over at the i {heart} papers store, as well as the wonderful Crate Paper The Pier papers, Copic markers, Momento ink, and Hemptique White Hemp Cord.

 The Pier Crate Paper pack was PERFECT for the Carnival Craze challenge and the Blue Skies stamp set!  It's loaded with summery carnival/fair colors and patterns!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
