DogGone Cute

Who can resist a cute pooch??? Not me! The inspiration for this layout is our adorable doggy MoJo. MoJo is no longer with us... but will forever be an important part of our family! She was just one of those cutey pie dogs! I loved these black & white pics & they worked so well with leftovers from the April 2009 My Creative Scrapbook kit. The kit featured the Bo Bunny Alissa papers! Love the colors! This was also done for the My Creative Scrapbook August Sketch Challenge by the great sketch artist Liz Qualman . The challenge was an awesome sketch to include stitching on your layout... that means faux stitching for me!!
I doubled matted the pics with card stock & added a paper flourish on the pic. The flourish was cut with a Cuttlebug die using my Big Shot Machine. I then highlighted with Cotton Candy Stickles for the pink card stock & Turquoise Stickles for the black card stock.

Basic Grey mini monos colored black with Ranger alcohol ink was used for the "cute" lettering. I really like the staggered letter look! It helps for those of us who do not do things straight!!!

I used a Signo pen & freehand dashes & dots for my faux stitching. I find it easier to just freehand...not perfect, but then again I'm not either!! The skinny scalloped pink strip is a Sizzix Decorative Strip die that I found & love! It is called Frills #2.

Liz's sketch called for multiple photos off to the side! I added an extra one because I could not choose! I also doubled matted these & highlighted with Stickles.


The flowers were made with the kit included papers, card stock using various dies & punches... & one layer of silk. I then distressed all layers & attached with a brad.
All distressing was done using Distress Black Soot, Distress Worn Lipstick & Adirondack Pool Blue.
This was a fun layout! It brought back great memories of our MoJo. Thanks Liz for a great sketch & thanks to all my friends for taking a peek! ♥
