LOVE THIS POOCH!
The inspiration for this layout is our precious mini schnauzer, Sami. Sami has "issues". She was rescued from a puppy mill after 5 years of being caged & being used as a breeder, having litter after litter. We have had her 2 years now & she has gotten sooo much better! She still has her issues, but we love her & accept them! She is the most lovable little thing.. you would never know that people had mistreated her, because she loves everyone!! Ya gotta love this Pooch!
I used the wonderful BasicGrey Urban Prairie paper. I contrasted it with the SEI black, polka dot paper from the Penelope Potpourri line. They were scraps & I am trying to use them instead of just saving them!!!
Scalloped edged scrap papers "frame" the photo on 2 sides. I use a spool of thread as my scallop template & hand cut. I then punched the center of each scallop so the background paper could show through. I used a row of border stickers that came in the Urban Prairie paper pack to finish on the scallops. I then placed some jewels in the center of the punches to highlight that pretty face!!!
The Flowers were layered with cardstock & Prima. I also distressed the flowers lightly with black soot.
The Fancy Pants flourishes & BasicGrey middleset alpha were inked with Staz On black ink.
I covered 2 hearts with the SEI scraps & inked the edges with Tim Holtz black soot distress ink to finish off the flowers. The butterfly was a K&Co sticker, placed on cardstock & glitter up with Stickles, then cut & adhered. I also accented the flourishes with little Stickle dots... continuing the dots theme in the scrap paper. I used both turquoise & fruit punch Stickles.
Thanks for taking a look! :)
