Retro Sketches #70 - Circus Party!

I had some free time to play today!  It's another gloomy rainy day here so time to stay in and make my own sunshine.  I hope you are getting your 4th of July plans finalized.  I'm hoping the sun will come out long enough to get the grill going and dry things up in time to  let us enjoy the fireworks!  Today I'm playing along with the Retro Sketches design.  I thought a circus might be a fun escape today!  I've had my eye on this WPlus9 set for a while, I finally broke down and got it!  This sketch is the perfect way to highlight all the images!  I used lots of busy bright papers from Echo Park - because a circus should be lots of fun shouldn't it?
Have a great day and  thanks for stopping by!
