Color me scrappy with feathers

This layout is for Color me scrappy
As I didn't have any real feathers and can't chase a bird, I made a paper feather. It is on the lady's hair. It is misted with red which unfortunately dribbled, so let's say it is a red feather!
Whenever I see a circus,I always think of this poem by CJ Dennis.

Hey, there!  Hoop-la! the circus is in town!
Have you seen the elephant?  Have you seen the clown?
Have you seen the dappled horse gallop round the ring?
Have you seen the acrobats on the dizzy swing?
Have you seen the tumbling men tumble up and down?
Hoop-la!  Hoop-la! the circus is in town!


Hey, there!  Hoop-la!  Here's the circus troupe!
Here's the educated, dog jumping through the hoop.
See the lady Blondin with the parasol and fan,
The lad upon the ladder and the india-rubber man.
See the joyful juggler and the boy who loops the loop.
Hey!  Hey!  Hey!  Hey!  Here's the circus troupe!

I used to teach it to classes for dramatic presentations.
On my layout I started with 8x8 paper by Merci Carnival. After matting my photo under the poem I found a clown picture in the same pack. The word "Laughter" has been on my scrap desk for ages. Then on went the pennants, stars, washi tape, journalling block . Finally I added the lady which is an embossed wedding stamp. I cut off the veil and added the feather and scrap paper lace on her skirt.
Rhinestones completed the picture.
