Loyal Best Friend

If you are a dog (or even cat) owner like me, you probably have a hard time walk by any dog themed scrapbooking products.  That was the case when Bella Blvd came out with this collection at CHA 2010 (January).  I had to have it!  I loved the colors!  I always find layouts about my dog so much fun to do because I have a drawer full of dog embellishments and the layout seems to put itself together!

This flower looking embellishment is actually fussy cut from one of the patterned papers in this collection.  I really wanted to embellish it so I took some baker's twine and wrapped it around all the groves and then I adhered a little fire hydrant in the middle.  I really liked how it looked but when I placed it on my layout it got lost in the other background papers.  So I broke out my Cuttle Bug, my Nestabilities scalloped circle die and some felt and created a background for it to sit on.  It turned out awesome!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd - Tail Waggers and Cat Naps; Cardstock: Bazzils; Embellishments: Bella Blvd - Tail Waggers and Cat Naps Chipboard, Jessie James Buttons, Making Memories Charms, Jillibean Bakers Twine, and Felt; Tools: Nestabilities Large Scalloped Circle, We R Memory Keepers Stapler; Sketch: Page Maps.
