My Farm 2013 digi layout

Over the past two months I've often been heard to say, 'well I have to go feed my animals now'. But its not any physical animals - its my animals in an online facebook game!! I discovered Facebook games about four months ago when my Aunt introduced me to them, and after I was a little disgruntled at all the violence and hidden object games creeping into my normal downloadable gaming site. I prefer time management games; growing things, selling things, and with an element of skill involved.

Farmville 2 has ticked all the right boxes for me. I find it relaxing and fun, and do a little bit each night after work to wind down.The Country Fair feature has made it all the more special, because the competitive part of me can run ragged!

August 2013 from Pixels & Paper Challenge seemed an unlikely challenge to whack my screen-grabs (of my fav animals - and the large one of my farm) of my game into. Just when I was going to give up, I decided to look at the picture structurally; I drew a line through all the girls heads, and created a piece of wire, and I hung all my pictures off that. Then I used the colours of the bathing dresses for the ribbons. The curtain in behind the girls reminded me of the fence, which was more farm-orientated than a curtain. A bit weird I know, but I thought my seeing my game has given me so many hours of enjoyment it deserves a scrapbooking page!
