The Circus Comes to Town!

Hello again, folks! Leah here, posting on Adina's behalf, as she's still at the hospital, anxiously waiting to be able to bring her new little man home!

So I'm going to cut right to the chase, and give you today's (yesterday's) Elements Challenge.... THE CIRCUS! Today is "National Circus Day" (which, admittedly, is a little strange), and we'd love to see your "animalistic" creations - something inspired by the circus, or just something featuring animals. :)

How about some inspiration from one of our Australian Dollies, Melissa?

(love the title, and how about that sun with the stitched rays?!)

and from our fabby Guest Dollie, Vel:
(hey, it's an animal! don't you just LOVE the monochromatic scheme, and that yummy ricrac?)

and from your surrogate hostess, Leah the Orange (using ELLIE, from Some Odd Girl):

Think you can work your magic with this challenge? If Dumbo could fly with those big ears, you can rock this! Let's see what you can do, and link up your NEWLY-CREATED projects below by next Monday, May 24th at midnight EST for your chance to win the May Elements Prize Pack! Make sure you link to the Dollies in your blog post, and GOOD LUCK!
