A Penny Lane Weekend!

This past weekend, me and my scrappy friends were over at my house for the last crop of 2015. We originally scheduled it for August 28th/29th, but with all the struggles that Bear was having, I just had to post-pone it. Now with the passing of Bear, things are starting to calm down a bit, so we decided to get together one last time before the Holidays have us kicking and screaming! LOL

I managed to get 5 pages done, 1 is for Sketch-N-Scrap that goes live next month, so I can’t show it to ya’ll yet. But I can show you my other pages that I did finish. They are all for Penny Lane’s Puppy Book. And its almost done too!

First layout is for ACOT’s Pet Challenge. Sher always offers a sketch that’s optional to do. I usually use it because I love sketches! The challenge this month was to use paper with animals on it. Dogs, cats, birds, whatever you like. So I broke into Authentique’s new line – DEVOTED – and cut mine into strips, along with fussy-cutting the hearts.

My Sweet Little Girl

Look at my sweet little girl, snoozing away! Adorable! ❤

And here is the sketch Sher provided:


My next layout is for ACOT’s Take Your Pick Sketch Challenge. Stacy chooses two sketches – one is a one-page sketch, the other one is a two-pager. I always try to do both.

So here is the first one:


When I first saw this sketch, I was thinking about stitching or using bling or something for those circles. After playing around with paper/embellies, I opted to use a Crafter’s Workshop template that has “coffee rings” on them. Take a look:

I really do love the affect! And look at how little Penny was! These pics were just taken just shortly after we had gotten her! ❤

And here are my supplies for this layout:
cardstock: Bazzill
i love you paper: Teresa Collins
journal tag, pp: 7 Paper
stickers: Sticko
twine: Doodlebug
spoiled rotten metal tag: Flair Designs
sequins: MME
ink: Clearsnap
title: Freckled Fawn
Stencil: Crafter’s Workshop

Last but not least, I chose to do the 2-page sketch that Stacy offered:


There are so many possiblities with this one! I just had a hard time choosing what pics to use! Then I came across some super cute pics of Miss Penny trying out the Pool for the very first time back in Feb 2013. It was the cutest sequence of pics! She first investigated the pool. Then she put one paw in…followed by another..and another..until she was all in!

1 paw, 2 paws, 3 paws, pool






And that is where the title came from. 1 Paw, 2 paws, 3 paws, POOL! All the papers, die cuts, and 3D stickers are Anna Griffin’s “Best in Show” collection. I’ve had these pics for a while..and have always wanted to do a two pager…just didn’t find the right papers. Until now. 🙂

I did work on another layout, but just didn’t finish it in time. Hopefully throughout the week, I can work on it. Its like 90% done too. It needs a title and a sprinkle of embellies. Maybe enamel dots and some washi. We shall see!

As always, thanks for stopping by and looking! 🙂
