In case you are unaware every other week Jill at the Scrapoholic post both a Card and Scrapbook Layout sketch. This challenge is for everyone to participate in, so please play along.
This week I was able to do both the card and Layout Sketch.
For this card I used the cuttlebug for the swirl and the polk a dot texture. I added black eyelets to the scallops on the top with a purple flower and the Best Wishes was cut out using Cuttin up.
Now onto the Layout
This Layout was really fun for me because we have 3 boy dogs and well we found this little girl dog and she is just absolutely adorable. I spoil her rotten and was so excited to be able to scrap her in pink. It's kinda a sad story. My hubby was on a job at a customers home and this little puppy kept following him around. He asked the customer who's puppy it was and she said that she didn't know that she had been wandering the streets for the last week. Well at the time (@ 6 weeks ago) She was so super scrawny and tiny. She looked to only be maybe 6-8 wks old. Well look at those eyes, he had to bring her home. He left his card with the customer in case someone came looking for her. Well about a week later that customer called him to let him know that they found out where she came from. Apparently a couple houses down the people were foreclosed on and they left a litter of pups in the house. Two of the puppies had passed away and there was a male pup that went to the neighbor and somehow our little one got out and that's how we got her. We named her Penny because she was lucky to be alive and we were lucky. You know the saying, "find a penny, pick it up. All the day, you'll have good luck." So this is the story behind my Layout.
I didn't do anything really special. I followed the sketch pretty much as it is. The tags came from a Fiskars punch. The Penny on the tags are rub-ons from scrapworks. The background paper is Heidi Swap and it had this black scallop flap attached right onto it so it worked perfect for this sketch.
Well thanks for looking now head on over to Jill's blog and play along. I can't wait to see what you create!
