Watcha Workin' On? Blocks for Bug

I recently saw at an antique display some kids blocks. This particular display spelled out pumpkin patch with the blocks. There was a set that said love, and a few others. They were the old wood kind. But this one set caught my eye as they were the kind with paper pictures on them. I thought about them all the way home. I remember getting a set in a very small wagon. A circus theme. Anyway, with all the scrap paper I have from my mixed media pieces, I decided to cut them up and make something fun for my little love bug and I to play with. So ... the picture above. So super simple and fun. Lot's of cutting. I even used some old kids books that were in really rugged shape. I am in the process of adding the alphabet, just stickers. Then one last coat of "Mod Podge" and ta da!!!
