 Grab your pitchforks and your overalls because this hoe down is about to begin!!

My nieces have horses and a pig, as well as chickens, dogs and a cat.  They live in the country and are also part of a horse club.  Every year they are in the Sarpy County Parade and we go watch.

I thought this would be the perfect layout for today's blog hop!
I followed this sketch from Let's Sketch where I am a DT Member.  We have weekly challenges HERE if you want some motivation to get your photos scrapped!
I used my cameo to design my title and border.  I added a pig (trimmed off the piglet), a horse and the rope frame. 

I welded 6 horse heads together to create a border for each page.
I cut the horse out of brown paper and inked the edges.  I cut the pig out of black cardstock and used my white gel pen to add some details to her. 
I saved the negative space from my title to use as a template.  I ran the letters through my 1" Xyron. 
I stuck down the letters in my template.  I rubbed the letters a bit to get the extra adhesive off (I call them glue buggers). 
Once the letters are stuck down, I gently peel up the template.
And the title is on! 
I added a bit of journaling.  My niece Sophie was interviewed by a local tv celebrity - Aunt Molly and Friends TV Show.  Emily kept trying to eat the hay backdrop!!  I was very proud of Sophie as she really did not seem excited to give an interview!
I tied a bit of twine around the horse borders.  I really like how this one turned out!  

Thanks for stopping by.  I love horses!  What is your favorite Barnyard Animal?
