Fun with the Piggy!

Hello there,
Happy Sunday to you!

Today I'm sharing a layout that was submitted at Page Maps for their "My Little Shoebox Sketch Contest."
I decided to have some fun and play along.

Here's the sketch:

This is what I created:
Photos of my sister's guinea pig.  We would all take turns holding him.  My nieces never really
paid much attention to the little guy, until we visited for two weeks.  He was being held and fed all
the time!  He's the cutest guinea pig and a little character too.  As soon as he would hear the 
refrigerator door open he would get all excited and start squealing for food! 

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Circle Punch: EK Success
Sharpie Marker
Chenille Ribbon
Hole Punch
Clear Title Stickers
Tag: Paper Pizazz  

After punching the circle, I cut a slit on the page to put the circle through.  Thought that would
be a bit more interesting that just cutting the circle and adhering it to the page.
The tag was traced, cut and distressed.  A knotted ribbon was added and finally the journaling.
I decided on journaling the angle of the tag rather than straight across.
Clear sticker letters were used for the title.  The banner was distressed, a hole punched in
one end and two ribbons knotted through it.
A better view of the distressing and a small strip of ribbon added to the corner.

Thanks for stopping by!
