OMG! I'm still shaking with excitement!! I won second place on the Piggy Tales contest. For the contest, we had to create an "All About Me" album using primarily Piggy Tales products. I chose the "Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs" collection because it is done primarily in Purples, and purple is my favorite color. I think Piggy Tales is a fairly new paper line, so there aren't a whole lot of embellishments to go with it, so I had to create my own embellishments out of paper. You'll see stamped and hancut flowers, as well as hearts. (Thanks, Kelly Goree, for the string of hearts idea!!)

So I told a brief story about myself with chapters separated into decades, 1960's, 1970's and so on. I can't believe I was picked as a winner!! They must've only had 3 entries!! LOL! Anyway, I created a separate slide show above showcasing my album. Thanks for letting me share my excitement with y'all!!

The notification email from Trina at Piggy Tales appears below:
