It's A Dog's Life ~*~ SBS#21 Challenge using CTMH Sarsaparilla paper pack

I did the 2 page layout for our SBS#21 challenge posted by De....It was a lot of fun. I chose to display pictures of my darling little "grand-pups" because they are such a huge part of mine and my husband's life.
I used handwritten journaling along with paper tearing & scissor edge-distressing, which are 2 of my favorite forms of distressing. I also did second generation stamping using my Barn Red ink "shadowing" the title stamped with black ink.
All products used are from Close To My Heart, except for the ribbon from Micheals.
  • Sarsaparilla paper pack (X7098B)
  • Tiny Typewriter Alphabet acrylic stamp set (D1222)
  • Delightful Alphabet acrylic stamp set (D1221)
  • Mature's Ambience Rub-Ons (Z1097) - I used the black florishes....pack has a page of brown, white and black rub-ons....VERY cool!!
  • Black ink pad (Z2105)
  • Barn Red ink pad (Z2104)
  • Square silver brads and silver hinges (Z291)
  • Clear buttons (CON073)
  • Tan Hemp (Z280)

All of the above CTMH products can be viewed by clicking HERE.

The close up pictures are to give you a better look at the detail embellishing.

I used Liquid Glass (Z679) to adhere the clear buttons to the plaid print paper, then I cut out the "altered" button and glued it onto my layout page. I did this because I wanted the buttons to coordinate with the B&T plaid print and to bring a little bit more of the blue colors into my scrapbook page.

Thanks for taking the time to drop into My Scrappin' Den to view what I've been working on....I also appreciate your thoughts and comments.

I would love to know what you like the most about this layout and if you think I should've done anything different.

Barb, I love, love, love your layout! You go girl! I am STILL sick and have not done the challenge yet. I did get some ideas together yesterday and hope to get moving soon.. hope, between recouperating and studying, we'll see. Which I've been slack at as well.

We need to get together soon!

I love your subject matter by the way! I just love Nugget and Bella. They are such sweeties!

Oh Barbara that's gorgeous, superb and beautifully done.
Love the colours, subject matter , actually love everything about it.
Mine's coming along slowly (very slowly) - I'm not confident in my sscrapbooking.

What a cute grand-pup! And what a great way to show off your love of him in two great layouts! Nice Job!!!!!

Hi Barb, thanks for you visit and lovely comment.
You asked about the paper I used. I'm not sure whether you meant the backing paper or the paper I used for journalling.
The backing paper was DCWW (just as it came) and the other was computer printed vellum again just as it came.

Your layout is very pretty Barb and I love the way you embellished it!

Hi Barbara - just popped over to see how you are.
I must say I love that little fairy flitting around the top of the page - I tried to get her to follow me to the bottom - but she wouldn't.
