FM121 - Circus Train for Dylan

Happy Wednesday!

The current Friday Mashup Challenge is to use Polka Dots or the word Happy, or mash it up and use both on your project.  I went with just polka dots and made a Circus Train for my friend's son:

It was hard to photograph the entire set, so here are two close-ups:

The monkey screamed to be hung by his tail and the Googlie Eyes are too cute.

Here is the flip side of the Circus Cars:

I thought spelling out Dylan's name on the back of the Circus Cars was a fun idea.

As I am not giving this to Dylan until his birthday party in October, I only filled one baggie with Animal Crackers just for picture taking.  Now I need to make a coordinating card.

I originally saw this idea on Dawn's blog.  She used stamps and dies that I don't have, so I had to get creative.  As the die I used is larger than the Chalk Talk Die, I changed the size of the box.  My CS measures 4 3/4 x 3, scored at 1 1/8 on both ends of the 4 3/4 side and 3/4 on both ends of the 3 side.  I also doubled up on the wheels so they would be sturdier.  I glued two 1-inch circles back to back and then added the 3/4 DSP circles.

This project is so cute and is quick to make.  Let me know if you give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Lisa! Die kleinen Zoowaggons sind zu niedlich!! Das fröhliche Papier passt perfekt für einen kleinen Jungen! Eine ganz tolle Idee von dir, auf der Rückseite der Waggons den Namen zu schreiben!
