I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I was pretty bummed when I missed the Circus and Sideshow Swap so I made myself a little tower of oddities. It is three 1.5" wooden blocks on a base, and they swivel on a dowel. This collage sheet plus this one made it incredibly easy to get all twelve images needed for the blocks. (psst, Alpha Stamps has a tattooed lady collage sheet, too!)



There's a quickie tutorial on my blog if you want to make your own. Use pictures of your kids instead, or maybe the fur babies of that cat lover friend of yours!

Only problem: my kids aren't all tatted up, nor can they do anything nearly resembling contortion! I'll have to stick with the professional sideshow folk.

Awesome idea for the blocks. This is as fun as a three ring circus. Literally!
