About a month ago now, we lost our beloved pup, Bailey. It was quite unexpected and I’ve been devastated to say the least. Having this event come up gave me a great time to sit on my own and go through pictures of him, remembering to awesome adventures we had. I am not a scrapbooker at all but I was able to create a fun 12×12 page using the new A Dog’s Life paper and the new dies too. I hope you like it.

These photos are from a little evening trip to the park across the street from our house last summer. He was so happy to be anywhere as long as his humans were with him. We were taking turns playing volleyball and laying in the grass with him. It was a fun night.

For my design I used the fancy edges tags to create some visual texture to go with the silhouette images on the left. Then I cut a couple strips of kraft cardstock and inked them up with the petite paws stencil for a tone-on-tone texture there. I also used the grass die in the land borders die set to cut a strip of grass which seemed fitting.

I framed the photos with some of the paper from the pad and couldn’t resist using the speech bubble sheet as a background panel too! It’s so much fun!

I pulled out the paw shaker die set and used it for a few elements – the large paw here, those fun little bones and the woof die cut too. I used the essential alphabet dies to cut his name from black cardstock and added it to the grass border.

After everything was assembled, the page looked too flat for my general taste so I took a blending brush and shaded the edge of the whole page with gray ink.

I’m really happy with how this turned out and hope to be ready to display it somewhere soon.
