05/16/16 - MIM #60

Good morning!
It's time for another "Make It Monday" sketch from "The Memory Nest".
This is the second sketch of the month:

Sketch #60 - You have until the end of May to submit a layout to be in the running for a prize: 

Journaling: "Hamlet tipping his "ball pit" to get to his treats; too lazy to climb all 
the way in. Eventually he climbed in when he realized his treats were not coming to
him like the balls were! 4.27.16"

(For those who don't know and can't tell,  Hamlet is a mini-potbelly pig.)

This page was created mostly w/ scraps leftover from one of my favorite scrapbook kits: Happy Tails by Bo Bunny.
The title letters and all the PPs, except the BG, are from the kit.
I still have some full pages of paper left but I challenged myself to use only scraps on this layout.
It was a fun extra challenge for myself...
It ended up in a layout that I absolutely LOVE!!!!!!
