This Little Piggy Went to Market

The August blog challenge at Scrappin Kids is already up. Challenge for this month is to create a layout based on a sketch made by resident designer, JC. Do check out the other layouts made by the RD Issa and my co-DT, Monique.


Here's my take:

Inspired by the Nursery Rhyme , "This Little Piggy", I created this layout about my "little piggy" who went to the "supermarket" with his classmates. The trip was part of their lesson in school about community helpers. I hope the journaling is visible enough to be read : )

This Little Piggy Went to Market


Instead of using 3 photos as originally seen on the sketch, I tweaked the sketch a bit by adding one more photo. Instead of putting a block of paper that is across the whole page, I placed pieces of striped patterned pps. I replaced the staple wires with buttons. And since my title is quite long, the rest of the title had to be placed at the bottom of my pics. Did you notice the color pink? Can't tell you how much I love the color combination I've used here.

materials used: Scenic Route Garden Grove Kraft Loopy Border pp (courtesy of Lasting Impression), SR Lynden pps - Dahlia St. and Glenning St. and die cut, DCWV Glitter pp, Kaiser Crafts pp, American Crafts chipboard (pig), Heidi Swapp alpha chipboard, Making Memories letter stickers, Zig pen, buttons

I hope you'll play along with us this month. To submit your entries:
