Serving up Cupcakes - Summer Fun Blog Hop, Day #2

Hi again, summer blog hoppers. Welcome back to Day #2 of the Summer Fun Blog Hop, hosted by my friend Lissa Marie of "So Many Crafts" and the Krazy Creative Crew. 

Isn't it tiring ... over and over ... when people ask, "Is it hot enough for you?"  Does it boil your shorts when you complain about the heat and someone reminds you of the past wicked winter Well, let me tell you: YES, it is MORE than hot enough for me, and no, our winter was mild and our summer came early. Ok, enough whining! On to crafting!!

In case you missed it yesterday, let me remind you of my thought process in coming up with today's summer-related projects. I thought back to my young'un days when the circus came to town, and we held neighborhood carnivals in our backyard. How I loved them!!  

My theme, then, is Summer Circus Fun. Yesterday, I described how I made the "Oh Happy Day" card shown below, at right. 

Today, I'll detail the cute Circus Tent Cupcake box: 

What a fun and easy box this is to make, with my Silhouette Cameo. Everything comes (cut) with the folds scored, and the tabs for gluing ready to go. A few zips with the glue gun and it's done!

Now what's a blog hop without a bit of blog candy?!  For this Summer Fun Blog Hop, we have two very special sponsors: the Scrapbook Stamp Society and "Anita and Bugs". Please be sure to check out the entry requirements at our Hostess's stop (the beginning), by clicking HERE.  


This Blog Hop has been brought to you by the Krazy Crafting Crew, which brings you monthly inspiration, all year long!

I absolutely loved the Circus too. My favorite is the clowns in the clown car. I was always super amazed at how they crammed so many clowns into that car, also the Elephants amazed me, I always wanted to be the pretty lady on the Elephant. Hee Hee super cute cupcake box, so fun for a party. You are such a talented Monkey!
