My dog was sitting on a chair, on our deck enjoying the sun.
I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers #48. You can save a photo of it by going to http://cricutinspiredlayouts.blogspot.com/2010/11/12-by-12-pet-scrapbook-layouts.html Just click on it to enlarge it, right-click on it with your mouse and choose “Save as”.
The smallest circle came as-is. It was from a paper pack. The other 2 circles were cut using the Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridge. The striped circle is 6.5 by 6.5. I also matted it.
The letters d-o-l-l-y I found on clearance at Joann Fabrics. From 5.00 to 50 cents. That's a bargain. They were white so I took Distress Ink Peeled Paint ink pad and colored them with many layers. I used the ink applicator tool by Ranger. I wanted portions of the letters to be shaded so I just added a little more ink on the right side of each letter. I used small round pop dots to give dimension to them.
This isn't on the sketch I used but I needed something to add to the outer edge of the paper. I used a Fiskars scalloped border punch. I did that with the Core'dinations Vintage Collection "Serene". I used a glue stick to add them to the pages.
Lastly, I added some glitter stickers to the top and added a small flower to the bottom of the scrapbook layout. I also added a diamond "gem" to the centers of the flowers.
