Being a shaped puzzle there was no doing the border first. It also includes special shaped pieces - 8 to be precise. I am always a little out of my comfort-zone when I don't have a border to guide me so I just started to throw areas together. I did not even sort the pieces at first and I kinda regretted that because I find the pieces sorted by color is most  helpful to me.

Eventually the pieces started to fill in by doing the butterflies first, the kittens and ducks. Then I worked the Pony's head and tail, then moved onto the purple/yellow field areas. 

The cat and white/green flowers were the trickiest areas to complete but overall the experience was quite delightful. Take a look at the closeup images below.

This is by Master Pieces and it has been quite some time since I have assembled one in this brand. The pieces are random cut and sturdy. However being a shaped puzzle some of the pieces just 'butt' up to each other and some were cut a little on the loose side.

My Hubby bought this one at the Thrift store for $1.00. Maybe the thought was this was a good one for children but that is not really the case.

Highly recommended for great color, fun pieces and interesting image.
