Layout: I Love My Bear

When I saw ACOT’s “Graphic Design” Challenge – using only rich, jewel tones against a white background – I knew I would probably use this sweet picture of Bear. She is so cute, at 88 lbs, on the bed, snuggling with her Best Friend Teddy Bear. And Sketchabilities newest sketch was PERFECT to accommodate this picture with all the papers and fun embellishments I used.

Here is my layout:

I Love My Bear

And #103 Sketchabilities Sketch

#103 Sketchabilities

I used quite a bit of different brands from my stash to create my layout. The glittered cardstock papers are by DCWV. Washi tape is Love my Tapes. Veneer triangles are Studio Calico with the purple mist from Clearsnap. Flowers are from KaiserCraft and the large purple gems are by Pink Paisley. The butterflies are made using my Marth Stewart Butterfly Punch, with the bling from Zva Creatives. Alphas are by Sassafrass Lass.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: The Same Bone

I take alot of pictures of my doggies, and capturing them chewing on a bone is no different. For Christmas last year, me and my husband bought 3 large 36″ rawhide candy cane shaped bone for our three big girls – Ruby, Bear, and Penny. Even the little ones wanted to chew on it! Here is a layout that has my parents’ two small dogs and four of my five chewing on the same bone.

The Same Bone

Its based on the mid-week mojo sketch challenge over at

Citrine Sketch 5

I rotated the sketch and instead of paper/embellies, I swapped them out and used photos instead. I also scrapped this layout with a challenge in mind from the Guest Designer over at ACOT. She has a spelling challenge and you must use something on your layout for each letter she gives you. She used the word MONSTER and mine stands for:

M = Max & Whiskers collection from Basic Grey
O = Oval shaped photos
N = Numbers
S = Stickers
T = Twine
E = Echo Park Journaling Spot
R = Rectangle pattern paper strips

TFL! 🙂
