Our Boy

I have a friend Marie, whom I haven't seen in ages, who was young and had no children. But she loved to scrapbook. Soooo, she did layouts of her little dog. Did I say layouts? I meant entire albums of her dog. The puppy is an adorable little thing. And takes a great picture. Marie kept nagging me and nagging me to get more dog items in the store. Well, I didn't...probably just to annoy her! Anyway, I hope Marie is reading this blog...cause I have done my First Dog Layout! I have always had a dog or 3, but I just never had all this time on my hands. Time to really get to know them, never be parted from them (when I shower, he sits right by the shower door!), and NEVER was I going to do a dog layout!
So here is my dog layout. I'm in love with this guy... The only thing that would make him better is if he could talk with me and had opposable thumbs. I have entered this into a sketch challenge at a LSS.


I had some metallic blue cardstock from one of those paper packs. The kit was from Cloud 9, embellisment was Jolee's, and the name alphas are from Making Memories. They are felt, gives a great texture to the page. I found a paw print pattern on-line (I googled 'free paw print pattern"), and cut it out of tan & black cardstock (stamping up!). I popped up the "T" and , as usual, inked the edges of the tan paw. A little journaling and alphabet rub-ons on pg2 and it was done. I did it while watching the Home Run Derby on Monday and the All Star Game on Tuesday. Scrapbooking and Baseball...doesn't get much better than that!

Starting Monday in the DreamTalkin Forum, I'm starting 100 Inspirations. I found the list in Jessica Spragues' blog archives. She did 100 in 10...100 inspirations in 10 days. I think that overwhelmes me, so I'm going to do the list over 10 weeks. And for every one of the inspirations you pick up, run with, and post a layoutor project using, will get your name in the random drawing for a gift. We start over every Sunday, so that should give every one a chance to enter to win. I know that Patty keeps winning the layout contests at Top-n-Crops every month. Let's give her some competition here, OK?
Have a great weekend. there is an on-line blog at cardmakermagazine.com that has crop challenges this weekend. Christmas in July Crop. Lot's of challenges already started..some free templates, new card ideas & give-aways. I'm plugging in, mostly because I need to scrap, but also I want to challenge myself to get some things done. Oh, and did I say there were prizes? I love those too.
Since I'm not in Oklahoma anymore, I need to hear from you on-line. Get some cropping done and....

Keep Dreamin'
