SBC -Sketch # 398 - "MY DOG"

Hello my Scrappy Peeps!

Here is Scrapbook Challenges Blog's Sketch #398 Cool one huh??!! :-)  I couldn't wait to use it!

 As you may know - SBC Blog also adds more fun for your inspiration - by added "OPTIONAL" challenges too!  I chose to ALSO incorporate the "FULL HOUSE" Challenge into my layout!

I decided to use 2 pictures from Instagram - of 2 of my favorite subjects - my youngest son Jake, and our new puppy Valentino!  I also have been on a Black, White and Teal, "binge"  - as I think the colors go so well together!  Here is my layout - what do you think??

I had so much FUN using up paper scraps and embellishments from my "stash!"  I am so happy with how this layout came out - it makes me SMILE! -

(Behind the Scenes Note:  I really found the thought of drawing those lines around the layout a "challenge" BUT let me tell you - once I got started - I had to stop my self and say - "That's enough!"  I REALLY like how they add to the layout and bring it all together - This is definitely a "RE-DO" for me on a future layout!)

For the FULL HOUSE Challenge  - 
I used (2) Different ALPHA's  - the black and white "My," and the chipboard "DOG"

I used - (2) Colors of Paint -(1) "Trunk Bay" Glimmer Mist - on the white back ground/base cardstock, and also on top of the "DOG" chipboard - after I painted it with Ranger's "Pool" Paint Dabber, and (2)  Black -which was drops and splatters of of India Ink - FUN!

Here is a close up of the Chipboard "DOG" - I also outlined it with a Black Sharpie marker.

I used (2) Wooden Elements from QUEEN & Co. - that I purchased - along with all the rest of the items for this Layout, at my FAVORITE Local and On-Line Scrapbook Store - Scrap-a-Doodle Doo!  You can see them in the close up photo below  - along with some of the (5) BUTTONS - from my stash, and my sweet Tino's face!)

(5) pieces of Washi Tape was the last item in the FULL House Challenge - I had fun using it to cover up some items in the photo that took away from the color scheme of the layout -

That's my take on #398 - I hope it inspires you to get Scrappy With It!   Check out all the other DT Member's Layouts over on the SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES BLOG - We hope you will play along with us!
