Sketchy Scrappers: All the fun of the fair

Welcome to the second half of 2013, scary huh! Well it's July 1st which means Sketchy Scrappers time. This months sketch was chosen by Julia who chose this sketch from Page Maps
I have to admit it took me a while to think of what to do, I don't know wether it was the photo size suggested or the circle but it took a while for my brain to get into gear ( no rude comments please!) Eventually though I found three photos I liked and decided to cut them to 4x4 instead and came up with this
I have blogged these photos taken around Stamford's Midlent fair, and I think used the title for the blog post, before. 

All the papers & the alphas are Amy Tangerine. The base paper is from Ready, Set, Go and came in Octobers Quirky Kit, the blue & red paper are both sides of the same sheet of Yes Please paper from the current Quirky Kit. The alphas also come in the current kit. After I had stuck them down I felt I needed to outline them to make them stand out, this kind of gives them a water colour or pencil crayon look in my opinion. 

I added buttons, sequins & punched hearts to create the invisible circle which originally had me stumped.
