This Little Piggy is a Cutie - Ring Bound Mini Page

IMG_3879.JPG

Here's another quick mini page for my ring bound book (before I punched the holes).  As soon as I saw this picture of my nephew I knew I would be using it.  Another thing I like about these little pages is that I don't feel so obligated to make everything match.  Sometimes I do.   It's one of those self inflicted things that we all should escape from - the idea that there are rules in creativity.  There are no rules in scrapbooking! 

The obsession with all things farmhouse has inspired some beautiful product lines lately.  (I'm not immune to the obsession).  These papers and die cuts and cut-aparts are from one of those paper packs.  (I'll try to remember to look it up!)

I also added the coil of twine and a super three dimensional old rose which I love love love.  This is one of the things I like so much about these pages.  I've had the roses for years but I've never felt like I could use them on anything and on this page I just glued that sucker on without a second thought.  

Here are a couple of close up shots of the 3-D elements.
