TCP Tuesday #221--Inspiration Celebration!

Well, if you've been keeping up with the Cat Packers at all (I know, it's hard herding cats), you know that it's Jen's week to host the TCP Tuesday Challenge from The Cat's Pajamas. Well, she's just gotten back from vacation and asked one of us kitties to fill in for her, so you get me as your Hostess with the Mostess this week! Ok, ok, sit back down, no need to keep jumping up and down, hollering for joy. You might sweat.

Jen always comes up with the coolest pictures for her inspiration challenges (I don't know where she finds this stuff!), and this week's is no different.
Check it out:

Looks like a lot of fun, right!! Go crazy with color, pattern, balloons, candy, whatever this makes you think of!!

The pictures put me in a "circus" frame of mind, so I decided to pull out the Big Top CutUps die that I hadn't played with in a long time and started making a multi-colored tent by cutting several different tents (whole) and then I cut them apart and pieced the different colors onto a whole tent. (Hi Kelli!-she thinks I would win Olympic GOLD with my cutting abilities! HA!), and I used the Big Pinking Border CutUps for the glittery cardstock along the bottom. I added the background text behind the tent using the Admit One stamp set and then the sentiment in the circle came from the Clownin' Around set.

NOW--Here's all the swanky details on how YOU can play along!:

Here are the details for this challenge:

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.

2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on Alma's Blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES221 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp/die, like this week)
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.
