PetCo – where the pets go!

Good afternoon on this very hot Summer day! Perfect day to stay inside and scrap!

This next layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy’s June Week 2 sketch:

LGS Week 2 June

And here is what I came up with:

PetCo where the pets go

Photo was taken about a year ago, when I took Ruby and Bear for their yearly checkup. After a vet visit, the pups go to PetCo to pick out a treat (or two). I used the receipt as a layering piece to fulfill the MMC #3 challenge over at ACOT. I had chosen craft supplies, memorabilia, and recipes. We also had to add one item that we kind of “hoard”. I’m not much of a hoarder, but I am guilty of buying my dogs brand new toys almost every time we go to a Pet’s store. So I had incorporate dog toys in my layout some how, along with glimmer mist (to represent the craft supplies); memorabilia (to represent the memorabilia, of course) and a sketch (for the recipes). Dog toys don’t fit on any other kind of page EXCEPT a dog page. And memorabilia…it had me thinking. So that is why I included the receipt, goes extremely well with the photo!

So I fussy cut a few toys from pattern paper, along with stickers and rub-ons of tennis balls, frisbee and rope toys! Alphas are from SEI and My Little Shoebox.

I also managed to use a portion of the dog biscuit paper from last month’s Use it or Lose It Challenge, which was given a second chance for this month’s Use it Or Lose it Challenge!

TFL! 🙂


With the passing of Prince, there are quite a few tributes going on. Even in the scrappy world, there is a way to honor Prince. One is thru his music. And over at ACOT, Barb’s Music challenge for the month is to use Prince’s music – whether its album covers, or songs, or lyrics….to inspire us.

I chose to use his song “Adore”, from his 1987 album, as my title:


These pictures are of my sweet Bear whom we lost last August. The pictures were taken just a few months before she fell ill. Just look at that sweet face!

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in “Night B4 Christmas” (from my May 2016 Use It or Lose It Challenge as a “second chance” item) and a Crafter’s Workshop stencil. I then layered solid cardstock, MME vellum and Basic Grey pattern paper, using a clip from Heidi Grace to hold the pictures together (so to speak). I then layered on washi tape from Love My Tapes and Freckled Fawn. The embellishments are from Prima and Studio Calico (veneers) and Heidi Swapp (glittered).

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Together and Nuts About Sketch’s sketch #311

I had SOO Much fun working with Nuts About Sketch’s sketch #311.

Here is my layout, featuring my mom with my aunt and cousin:

311 - Brandy

And here is the great sketch that Shawn created:

311 - Due Mar 30

I dug deep into my stash and used some older papers from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). The colors are rich and after adding layers, and foam adhesive, really livened up the papers. Here are some close ups:




The veneers are by Studio Calico, which I misted in three colors – “Its Red” and “Peacock” – both by Tattered Angels; and “Coffee Bean” which is by Inkadinkado. The cork arrows are by Fancy Pants.

TFL! 🙂
