Sketch-N-Scrap Reveal with Ruby Mae

Good morning all! Today’s Sketch-n-Scrap sketch is by the very talented Mandy Reedyk. I fell in LOVE with the sketch the moment I saw it! I mean, just take a look at it! Look at those fun circle pictures!

December 15th Layout

And here is my take on it:

Brandy Dec 15th Layout

I had a lot of fun with this sketch. The pictures are of my sweet girl, Ruby Mae, a couple of years ago. I decided to tilt it just give the layout more interest. I didn’t stitch my twine, I just used some strong glue to hold it down.


That quote is from a cut apart sheet from the Devoted line from Authentique. I fussy cut the paw print circle, and then added 3D adhesive to give it some dimension. The background pattern paper is also from Authentique.


The Woof! bubble is also fussy-cut from some pattern paper – from the older Woof! collection from Echo Park. The burlap pattern paper is from KaiserCraft, as well as the arrow sticker. The cork star is Freckled Fawn, and the 2 smaller veneer stars are Studio Calico, which I inked using Clearsnap cat eye ink.


That fun die cut title was a gift from my friend Sara M. She made die cuts for all my babies. The maroon pattern paper is by Karen Foster.

Hope you can stop by and play along with us over at Sketch-n-Scrap!

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Best of Friends

Let’s Get Sketchy’s latest sketch offers so many possibilities, I know it’s going to be one of my faves! 😉


And here is my layout – I pretty much stuck to the sketch:

Best of Friends (2)

The pattern paper on top is by Karen Foster, and I used some it to fussy-cut the tags out, making my own banner:


The background paper is by Paper House Productions and I love the heart and paw print that it let me put the date and the names of my furbabies on the page, without causing awkwardness or making it bulky:


The photo is of my four doggies in November 2012, just shortly after we got Penny. Just look at how little she was! Time sure does fly!

And the title – “Best of Friends” – was inspired by the Disney Challenge over at ACOT. We had to use a Disney song as our title, or use the lyrics on our project. The title is from a song in the movie “Fox & The Hound”.

The paw prints are by MAMBI and the small alphas are Cosmo Cricket.

TFL! 🙂
