2009: Mizpah Shrine Circus
One of our first adventures of 2009 was a trip to the Mizpah Shrine Circus. We went early to see all of the animals ahead of time, and we were fortunate enough to sit in the front row. I purchased one of the programs which had trading cards of all of the clowns to sign. My son had a great time trying to track down all of the clowns and getting their signatures. You can see him getting a signature in the top left hand side of the right page.
For this page I decided to tear the cards out of the program and I used a corner cutter to round the edges of each of the cards. To keep the look going I bordered all of the pictures that I took with white as well so that they all looked the same.
I chose bright fun colored shimmery background pages to hint at the fun and excitement of the circus, and made sure that I added my usual assortment of ephemera – ticket stubs, the title from the program, and a token from one of the clowns.
