Piggie #2~Digi Layout

Hi there!

Thanks so much for all the great comments on my recent crafty efforts. Looks like that wreath was a big hit! *Ü* If you decide to make one, will you please let me know so I can see your handiwork?

Yesterday was a gloriously spring-like day, sunny and in the low 60s. Today...not so much! LOL It's about 20 degrees cooler and overcast. Mother Nature sure likes to tease, because it snowed some and rained some, too! But she's going to be nice this upcoming week, I hear. 

I was thinking I might do some cleaning up around here, but the drastic change in weather put a damper on that mood. LOL I haven't digi scrapped in a good long while, so I decided to work on a layout. Well, first, I unzipped a bunch of files and started tagging them, but quit that so I could actually play. Here's what I ended up with:

I knew I wanted to use a piggie image and thankfully found a couple in my digi stash. I worked the rest of the layout around that cute quilted pig. I'm pretty pleased with the result. Jessica saw me working on this and helped me with the journaling.

I used a Becky Fleck template for this one. She has that Page Maps templates site and authored a book by the same name. I have the book and when she offered digital templates to go along with some of the templates in her book, I bought them. This template is one of those. It goes along with pp 82-83 in the Page Maps book.

I found the pig in Funny Farm, which is a NitwitCollections kit  and used the papers and elements from that kit as well, although I recolored a few of them to work with the layout. Speaking of Mary Fran, she has a blog now! I'm sure you know that makes me do a happy dance, right? *Ü*

The font is Whitehall 1212 I also used the number symbol in Ali's Font and I can't remember which font helped me make the number 2 (sorry)

I can't believe the day is almost over already. Guess I'd better close for now and finish up supper.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great start to your week!

Cute page! You're inspiring me to think about doing some digiscrapping. . . although I'm slowly working my way through 3 baby albums. Paper albums. *sigh* Soon.

This is super cute Jeanne. I love your digi layouts. So you've already seen some snow and rain? It hasn't quite made it up our way yet. I have to go to Fort Collins for work tomorrow so hopefully it's not too bad.

So very sweet! I love it. The "papers" are so cute.

My day has been spent trying to find my way around the new computer. All I can say is that it hasn't been all that much fun. It's an old lady thing, I think. LOL.

Hope your week is wonderful.

It's always such a treat to see your creativity up on the screen. ;) This LO is so the 'piggie' theme --works so well with that cute li'l piglet of yours in the photo. ;) Thanks for the inspiration and the fun links too. Some day when I've got time for a bunny trail, I'll have to take a hop to see what's there. Not tonight though....

Sure hoping this weather brightens back up soon. We didn't have any rain or snow today, but it sure was cold and gloomy. I can't even tell you how ready I am for some sunshine...CA-style would be nice for a while. ;)

What a darling page! Of course, your sweet Jessica is always darling - but I truly love the pink and flowers, and the great journaling! Awesome!

Sweet layout, Jeanne. Glad to see you pulling out your digital goodies inspires me to do the same.
