help me find some paper!

(please!)

i'm looking for something very circus looking. it doesn't necessarily have to have circus things on it, but i'm thinking white with the primary blue/red/green/yellow. polka dots, stars, stripes, whatever! any ideas? i've checked my local shops and can't find much.

this is for miles' birthday party. yes, i realize he's only 7 months old, but if i start now i can do much of it myself! Wink

I like this one. Is this anywhere close to what you are looking for?

I just looked at one of my scrap packs and found it on EBay (b/c I'm too tired to take a pic!)

If you scroll down to the 4th row there is some primary paper with stars, squares, sttrips and big dots. Don't know if that is what you are looking for either. Plus, you may want open cardstock if you need multiple sheets instead of a stack pack.

kelly! you're quick! that second link to ebay is more what i'm looking for. the stars and the dots are perfect, something like that!

here's a link that i'm using as inspiration. http://armellejewelry.blogspot.com/2009/04/circus-party.html (some of that is fabric, but you can see the circus letters, etc)

I'm so tired ... I actually read your request as "citrus" not circus ... then I didn't get why those colors/patterns would be related to oranges and grapefruit. it wasn't until I clicked on the blog that it came together ... yeah, I need SLEEP.

Ashley...don't worry, Wyatt is only 3.5 months and I bought the cake pan I want to use at his first birthday Smile I'll probably start working on invitations towards the end of summer (around 7 months!)
