Puppy Love

Hello Friends and Welcome Visitors,

We hit 100 degrees at Reagan National Airport today!  Wow!  I am just burying myself in my craft room, trying to stay cool and use as little electricity as possible.

I decided it was time to start working on a baby book for our new puppy Duncan.  I was looking for a sketch to use and I found a great one on the Quick Quotes Blog.  Here is the sketch.

And here is my take on the sketch.

This was very fun to make.  I pulled out all of my (really old) pet embellishments from Basic Grey's Max & Whiskers and my new paper from Quick Quotes and got to work!

Here is a closer look at the embellishments around the photo.

I used the following products to make this layout:
2 Quick Quotes 12x12 papers - Anchors Away
1 Basic Grey Max & Whiskers paper
1 Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dog paper
Lots of Wags & Whiskers embellishments
Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking Inks - Fuchsia, Creamy Cocoa, Blue Jeans, Red Hot and Peach Tree

Thank you so much for stopping by my friends, stay cool!
