Lasting Memories March GDT Week 5 -- *5 Patterned Papers "Good Wait!"

Hello Scrappy Friends!
It is time for my last week as a Guest Designer for the Lasting Memories Scrapbook Layout Blog.
I really had a great time with these challenges, and I hope they have inspired you to get some scrappy and creative time in, and play along with us!

The last challenge is to use 5 different pattern papers.  If any of you have seen my layouts on previous posts, you know this is not a problem for me - and something that I love to do. A helpful hint for those that might find this difficult - try to use papers from the same paper line or collection. This way the manufacturers have done all the coordinating for you.  If not, don't be afraid to put different patterns together on your own.  I'd suggest looking for patterns that contain the same or similar colors, and build from there!

Here is my layout - I used BoBunny's Happy Tails Collection - I used 7 different patterns in this layout - 5 are obvious. Numbers 6 and 7 are the front and back of BoBunny's Double Dot Orange Citrus Vintage, used to mat the photos, and for the journaling tag.

I also used 3 of the same photos that I had played with by using different filters from an app that I have on my phone - I thought they came out cool and worked great for this layout!
These are our 2 Portuguese Waterdogs, Maggie, on the bottom left with the white paws and chest, and Tino on the top right, who is all black.  This breed is very smart, and since they are a working dog, they need to be challenged and kept busy.  One of their favorite training games is "wait."  After they sit, and then down, I place a treat on the top of one of their paws. As you can see, the won't even look at the treat, and will leave it there until I say "OK, Take it!"

I then praise them and say "Good Wait!" 

I've had the orange Double Dot Chipboard letters and swirls in my stash forever!, and thought they worked perfectly with this layout.

I matted and popped the "DOGS" sticker, and thought the orange dot washi tape worked well with the papers and chipboard. Love all the coordinating embellishments with this line!

I popped the mat with the 3 photos, and created a pocket to tuck a journaling card into.  Love that cute black and white doggie washi tape too!

Here is the back of the journaling card, and yes, I do love my dogs!  They bring such joy and love into our lives!
