02/27/17 - February "Ugly Paper" Challenge

Good Morning!
Just sharing one of my latest layouts!
For the February Ugly Paper Challenge.

Reminder of the rules:

1. After signing up, the host gives your name and address to another participant
2. The other participant sends you 2 "ugly" papers and at least one ugly embellishment
3. You MUST use both papers; the embellishment(s) is optional
4. You are allowed to use other items as well, as long as the 2 "ugly" papers are included in the layout
5. You are allowed to alter the papers and, if used, the embellishment(s) but they must still be recognizable
February "Uglies"
"Pigs Feet"

Journaling: "Pigs Feet... Not for eating, for holding!
Cuddles w/ Hamlet. 2.24.17"

*Oops I just realized I wrote "2016" not "2017" I need to fix that - DOH!

In case you can't tell, the Ugly Papers are the PP used for the large heart and the "baby" PP used for the large circle.
I also used some of the "ugly embellishments" - 7 heart stickers.

Fun fact: I hate "baby" PP, even for Baby Photo layouts.
Have I used them before? Probably, can't remember, but I'm sure not very many...because as I said I hate them...
Okay "hate" is a strong word, but you get it.
So receiving a Baby PP in the "Ugly Paper" challenge was definitely....challenging!

Having said that, I also have to say, this is one of my favorite layouts ever created and definitely my favorite "Ugly Paper" layout!
I love everything about it and looking at it makes me happy!
