As you probably can imagine, with three boys I don't use a lot of pink in my projects! But, with the piggy theme I had going on here, I thought pink was a must! I paired the pink with some masculine colors...Night of Navy and Dusty Durango and threw in a little Chocolate Chip! I was a little aprehensive about the color combination, but becuase of his navy and orange shirt in the pictures, I think it all came together and worked really well!
Here's a closer look at the piggies. Warning...they are DARN CUTE!!!
I used Pretty in Pink cardstock for the piggies and I sponged around the edges of all the punched shapes with Pretty in Pink Classic Ink to give my little piggies some depth. The bodies of the piggies are made with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, and the heads are made with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. Their little heads are attached to the bodies with Stampin' dimensionals. I used the 5-Petal Flower Punch for the ears, the Crop-A-Dile for the eyes. The tail is a swirl cut free hand and the little piggy noses are buttons. So cute! *grin*
The title is a combination of stamping and chipboard. I used the On Board Lots of Letters set for the words "piggy" and "perfect" because I wanted those words to stand out a bit more than the rest of the title, which is stamped. The chipboard letters are inked with Craft ink and a Sponge Dauber. I chose to do the title in two colors based on what color cardstock the words were going to be on.
There you have it! A page that brings back a fond memories of mine and hopefully will help you relive some happy memories from when your little ones were younger! As always, any of the supplies I used to make my layout are available to order through my website or by contacting me.
