Teddy's First Layout

Tonight I completed my first layout of Teddy, my new puppy. He is adorable and very time consuming, and I am so glad I have him to brighten my days, though I think he is fast preferring the company of my outside dog Trixie! Lol!

Here I used a piece of Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack put together by Stampin' Up! in this year's new catalogue (p177), sponging it with some Bordering Blue ink. I cut the flowers (not the 3d ones) from another designer series pack called Greenhouse Gala. I used a doily and sponged it with more Bordering Blue ink to lay the photo on, then added some non SU! flowers and a cute little doggie sticker and alphas. I stamped some images and sayings from the D is for Dog stamp set, punched some tags with the largest Tag punch, sponged the edges with Bordering Blue before adding some journaling with the Bordering Blue Stampin' Write! marker and added then some linen thread, drawing the threads together with a non SU! flower. There are strips of the Greenhouse Gala paper and some non SU! lace on the page as well.

Thanks to Caz at Papercraft Addictions for the sketch inspiration!
