Holiday Paper Wreath!

Hey everyone! I recently finished this fun project and had to share it with you! If you would like all the details on how to make your own make sure you check out the Label Tulip blog tutorial I posted!

I used Piggy Tales patterned papers (I used some of the Itsy Bitsy Spider paper) , Creative Imaginations brads and flowers. Making Memories leaf straight pins, WRMK glittered brads.

Also, be sure to check out this fun contest Piggy Tales is running...

October is a great month for many reasons. As fall sets in we tend to become a little more introverted. As the colors turn outside, our thoughts tend to turn to preparing for winter. Even those of us who live in more temperate climates recognize that there is change in the air. Piggy Tales became a business only 3 years ago in October 2006. We've had the pleasure of watching this little piglet sprout and grow and we thank you all for sharing that with us. We thought it would be a good idea to offer something fun for Octobers contest, something we haven't done before. So, for the month of October we are asking you to share Piggy Tales with someone you care about. If you haven't already, visit our sign up page at; http://www.piggytales.com/website/newslettersignup.html and sign up to receive the FREE Piggy Tales digital newsletter, you'll also receive sneak peeks, coupons, product announcements, ideas, inspiration and MORE! Then have your friends go to piggytales.com and click on "Newsletter Sign Up". Be sure to have your friends list their name, email address, state and who referred them. We will pick 3 lucky participants and their referring friends to win $50 each in Piggy Tales product. Contest will end October 31st, 2009. Good Luck!

Happy Labor Day!

Hope you had a great day! We had fun today -
Brian got up early and tried out the smoker given to us by Brian's brother, Scott. Brian prepared and smoked a large pork shoulder today...
I got up and made pancakes and scrambled eggs for everyone...
then outside to play in the back yard.
The kids couldn't wait to get in the pool till later and started jumping in with their clothes on! ha! So, Brian took a picture of them doing that!
We blew bubbles and played, ate lunch, naptime.
Then Meme and Pappy came over for dinner and more playtime!
