Piggy Tales has been one of my favorite manufacturers since the company launched several years ago. The owners are adorable, their product is gorgeous and innovative, and it's made right here in the USA -- often from recycled materials! Oh, and their product lines are named after nursery rhymes. What's not to love??
I fell in love all over again when I got one of their new Drawbridge albums to play with. These new board books are designed to allow all sorts of bulky poky sticky-uppy sort of embellishments -- and still close flat! LOVE THAT! I got an early release as part of a special project with Big Picture Scrapbooking, and created this cute mini-album of some of my scrapping friends. The patterned paper is their Cinderella line, and I threw in some other goodies, including WorldWin cardstock (a new favorite), Making Memories glitter alphas, CK rub-ons, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, Foof-a-la buttons, Cosmo Cricket ribbon (on the cover -- chocolate brown velvet scallops, how delish is that??), Tinkering Ink rub-ons, and KaiserCraft rub-ons, flowers, jewels and self-adhesive pearls (KaiserCraft is an Australian company doing some amazing stuff. I'll share more about them soon).
Because of the interactivity element (fold out/down/up pages), I created a masterpiece in a few hours... totally in keeping with my "Keep it Simple" philosophy. I stuck with a single color palette, added in a few embellishments, and voila!
I actually did most of this at Ben's baseball practice. I used spray adhesive to make it even quicker, and everyone was awed and amazed at my results. ;) Gotta love the "wow" factor!
And you thought I hadn't been scrapbooking! P'shaw!
