When Rob and I closed on our house, we made sure to bring the doggies over to the house at least once before move in day. My dogs have never known anything other than the previous house, so we didn’t know if they were going to freak out, get upset, try to dig out, etc. So the day after we closed, we took all four dogs over to the new home. Jeffrey had already been there, but the girls – it was their first time. And I made sure to capture those moments.
One of my fave moments of that day was to watch Ruby and Bear (who are 10 yr old litter mates) explore the yard. Together. With Ruby eventually leading the way.
I’m in love with MAMBI’s newest stickers – both sticker and chipboard! They go with almost any subject.
My stencil work (needs more work..lol) was from My Favorite Things (the staggered paws) and I used a black gelato mixed with a bit of glaze (both from Faber-Castell). I really love how it turned out.
I went with this color theme (blues, purples, neutrals, gold, silver, and grey) to participate in ACOT’s Disney Challenge. I don’t do this challenge often as I’ve never been to Disney World, and I’ve only been to Disney Land once (but I was young, before I was a scrapper). But this month, the hostess had us use a picture of the Castle as inspiration and made it a color challenge!
My layout is based on a wonderful sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy (May – Week 4):
I pretty much stuck to the sketch. I love the use of 2 photos, with layers and either stencils or stamps or gelatos or even mist! This sketch has so many possibilities!
The complete list of my materials are as follows:
Background paper: Basic Grey
blue pattern paper, die cut title: Anna Griffin
mist: Tattered Angels
chipboard arrow/heart, word bubble, stickers: MAMBI
