Hello my name is Spot

I snapped this photo of my daughter and her dog Spot, while Spot was still a relatively new member of the family.  She's a rescue and we just adore her.  Anywho, there's no big story to share about this photo except that these two girls really adore each other.

Supplies: Scrapbook Circle True Stories August 2012 Kit: American Crafts Shoreline Belmont Shore (35736), Sea Isle (35732), Shoreline Bits - Sand Dollar (85585), Pebbles Sunny Side From Me to You (751282), Fancy Pants Country Boutique Barn Door (1596), Simple Stories Summer Fresh, My Mind's Eye On the Sunny Side decorative brads,  Elle's Studio Summer Lovin' Cutouts, aqua twine.

Creative how-to: I used this week's sketch from Creative Scrappers, sketch #221 as a starting point. First, I flicked some mist splatter on my background paper. I fussy cut the Shoreline fireworks looking paper and then layered the two background papers over it, adding the Hello label (I cut the red checkered washi tape so that I could adhere it over the photo), banners, photo and other embellishments. See the yellow and orange label with the brads? I cut that in half and tucked it under the background paper and then set the other half aside. I cut the banner labels from the Pebbles paper and then layered them on top of each other to make a cascading banner. Note that I had to cut the bottom and middle layer in the middle so that they would show on each side. I added it to the top right corner of the layout using the other half of the yellow and orange label, another banner and brad. Lastly was the journaling card.

Journaling reads: You love your dog, Spot and she adores you! I caught her sneaking in doggie kisses, something she does every chance she gets!"

Thanks for stopping by today. I think there might be ONE kit left over at Scrapbook Circle so I suggest you head over there right away and then stop by the Creative Scrappers blog to see the original sketch and what the rest of the design team did!
