A Jar + Farm Girl

I had the most wonderful time this past weekend at a scrapbooking retreat
in Tyler, Texas.  If you ever plan on being in the area, be sure to check out 
Memory Lane Inn...it's an amazing Victorian home and modified for the weekend scrapbooker!

On the first day there we visited the local scrapbook store and I picked up
some of October Afternoon's Farm Girl papers and accessories to go with the 
cutest 'jar' shaped chipboard mini album from Scrapbooker's Emporium!
(and don't miss the acrylic jar set, which will allow you to create several looks)

 For the cover, I used the templates to build the lid and 'fabric' cover from various
patterned papers.  I kept the design pretty simple since the cuteness of the chipboard girl
goes a long way!


The inner two pages...I love the idea of using the small journaling cards for 
photo mats or jotting down a memory.  



I used an old typewriter for the little sentiment flag and added a flair button to the middle.
And isn't that the happiest pig you've ever seen!?!



And the final two pages incorporating Farm Girl's chipboard, stickers, flair and Sticky Keys!
After adhering the finished pages to the chipboard, I outlined the edges in red/white baker's twine.
I can't wait to use this jar-shaped chipboard again...great for a small recipe book, 
gardening tips or a banner for the kitchen :)

Enjoy your week and thanks for dropping by!
