Little Piggy's

Over Easter break we went to camp with my parents at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds, in Indiana. We were right in the heart of Amish country. Amazing that these folks live like that in today's world. but the real story here was the 4H Pig Auction. We had never been to one so it was a must for all of us. Our city slicker kids were just blown away. (We were too.) Here's my layout depicting the historical event.

 (Please forgive the flash that's blurring out my sisters face, I had bad lighting this morning.)
The cute little piggy embellishment is cut with my Cricut using SCAL, the pattern is from Treasure Box Designs. 
I made this LO for a summer challenge over at Scrap Sisters Studio, we have to make 10 LO's and an altered project. Nicole gave us a list of possible LO's, this one fits the homemade embellishments category, I made all the pg elements myself. I need to get moving on the rest of my LO's.

Happy Scrappin'.

Puzzle Swap Fun

Lets swap a puzzle. Here's how it worked. We all sent $5 to one gal she bought the blank puzzles and numbered the backs of each and put directional arrows on each piece. Then she mixed up the puzzles,  each person received a piece from all 12 puzzles. She mailed them out along with a direction sheet. We  had to pick a theme and colors for our puzzle. They arrived in the mail and you had to make a piece for each person according to the rules set forth. Here is what I completed:

This was so much fun. The only hard part was you were working on a piece that was 2 1/2 by 3 1/2, tricky. I can't wait to get the finished pieces back and see how my puzzle will look. I'll post a picture when I get it.

Happy Scrappin'.

LOST Blogger alert!

It has been quite some time since I posted. So I thought I'd pass along a wonderful FREE workshop. I'm a fan of Big Picture Scrapbooking. I've taken a couple classes from them and loved every minute of it. They have a FUN FREE workshop coming up in August. So I thought I'd pass along the information.

If you've never been to their site go check them out. All you have to do is register (for free) and then choose this class from the class list. Register for it- for free and then wait till August 12th for the BIG kick off.

As for me, I've quit my job at my LSS and it's been wonderful (quitting that is). I've started to scrapbook for myself again. An amazing concept. I've gotten together with a couple friends recently at another store- Scrappy Chic Livonia. Wonderful store, can't say enough NICE things about them. I'll try to take some pictures of my recent work and post again soon.

Happy Scrappin'!
