Man's Best Friend With Flair!!

Man's Best Friend with Flair!

Ha ha!! How do you like that blog title??  Can you guess that my FWF project for today is going to include our dog?  Well if you did, you are absolutely right!!

I used this week's Simple Scrapping Sketch Challenge  (USCSSC03) at Unity this week that was given to us by Renee!  It is an awesome sketch and it was perfect for one of the layouts that I needed to make for Tasha's first year album!!  

If you are a Fan Club Member at SCS you can view the album cover that I made for our dog!  It was one of my last submissions as a Dirty Girl.  Click HERE if you want to see it!

Here is Renee's sketch...
I altered the sketch for my personal use because instead of a one page layout, I needed a two paged 8 x 8 layout.  So I stretched the layout width wise and added an extra panel.  I also flipped the circle embellishment to the left side.


The following stamps were used to make this layout
  • Bitty Backgrounds (circles) were used to create the background that anchored the three pictures and also provided the background behind the doghouse.
  • I Ruff You:  I cut away one of the paws from the strip of paws and stamped it along the rust border and under the title
  • Le Chic Vintage scrapbooking Kit (SBC-100)

The DP I used for this layout is from the DCWV Pet Stack.  The colors worked perfectly with the colors of my puppy and her toys.  I enjoyed curving the lines instead of keeping them straight like the sketch.


I created the title by handwriting TASHA and then using rub-ons for TOYS.  The journaling states...
"We were so excited to get Tasha and couldn't help spoiling her with a lot of new toys.  She is so cute when she plays with her toys...BUT... She doesn't share very well!!"

So there are up to 50 blogs for you to visit today and one of them is hiding the flair blinkie that will get someone a chance to win 25 random stamps from Unity.  To begin the blog at the beginning, you want to stop by the Unity Blog to start at the top of the list!!  Enjoy your hopping!!

Have a great Friday and may your bucket overflow with friends of all kinds... furry or otherwise!!  :-)
