Those Eyes,That Face! - SOS Book Cover Challenge for September

Well, this month's Book Cover Challenge from the Scrap Our Stash Blog looks like it is pretty much about "school" but look closer...  I drew my inspiration from the cute dog at the bottom/center of the cover.  Since my "boys" are in their 20's and I started scrapping "late" in their lives, I don't have very many school "type" photos around.  I decided to focus on the dog, as my newest dog, Tino, is my almost 3 year old "baby," and also the YELLOW background color!  So, you see, the book inspired challenges are pretty much all about what "inspires YOU" about the photo - so come on, and join us in this month's challenge!  I can't wait to see what INSPIRES YOU!
Be SURE to include a BOOK or DICTIONARY Paper in you Layout too!!

Below is my "Inspiration" Layout for you - as you can see - I focused on our youngest Portuguese Water Dog  - Valentino, or TINO as he is very affectionately known!!  I used the color YELLOW as my background color, just like in the book cover.  I also used a page out of an old children's fairytale book, as he was just a 4 month old little guy, when these photos were taken. 

He did have me at WOOF!



He is still just as cute!

This was his first snowfall

Seriously, could you say no to that face?? - You can see the old page from a children's book that I used to layer some of the papers and patterns behind this cute photo!

As you can see, I tore most of the paper components in this layout. I really like the look it gives.
Here are some of the items used:
BoBunny "Happy Tails" - Paw Prints and Bow Wow 12x12 papers, along with decorative brads and buttons
Washi Tape
Distress Stains - Candied Apple, Mermaid Lagoon, Carved Pumpkin, Picket Fence

Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with this month.  Please stop by the Scrap Our Stash Blog for full challenge details and PRIZE info!
