How Pig-culiar!

I've been waiting and waiting to share these following two layouts with all my cyber-scrapping friends. They are both part of the package I sent in to Close to My Heart's corporate office along with my teaching proposal for our convention in July. I'm hoping to be chosen to teach interactive pages as they are truly my passion right now.

If you love these pages, too, and want to see more, simply scroll all the way down and click on "older posts". I have several different interactive pages posted since last October or November. (P.S. - Someone had e-mailed me a request for more information on my coconut tree page. Can you please resend the e-mail? I accidentally deleted it and haven't been able to respond!)
So, here it is . . . a working barn-door page dedicated to preserving my daughter's very pig-culiar passion for pigs.

So, here is the layout as you'd find it in Ella's album. The barn doors are made with 9 x 9 page protectors that have the holes cut off. I then adhered them to the page protector with hinges that punch through the layout but not through the back of the page protector. The barn paper is handmade using reinker and a toothbrush to get the woodgrain and a ruler and marker to get the board and nail marks. The glare is covering up one of the more fun details, a little pig-butt walking off the page with a curly tail made of ric rac.

Here is the layout with one side flipped over . ..

and then both sides. Plenty of room to document this obsession.

Sorry about all the glare . . . it's definitely a challenge to photograph pages with page protectors on, but, in my case, it's a necessity. Check the next post for my next interactive page unveiled and thanks for taking a look!
