I wanted to share a layout I did for a bunch of different reasons actually! I found the sketch on Creative Scrappers and their sponsor this month is Scrapbook Nerd. I'd never heard of Scrapbook Nerd, but I really liked their name and I was intrigued! So I headed on over there to check them out...turns out, THEY'RE AWESOME!! They have an amazing online store (and they're Canadian too!! WHOOOP!!) They also have a forum where they have fun challenges, technique talk, and also just various scrappy conversations with fun people!! They also have a gallery where you can post your projects and be super inspired by all the fab artists there too!!
Turns out, they're also having a DT call!! So I made this layout to participate in the sketch challenge over at Creative Scrappers, but I also made it to apply for the Design Team :)
The pictures are of our wicked awesome (and insanely HUGE) dog Luca. We got him when Kieran (our 3rd son) was 6 months old, and I must admit, I was a little scared to have a puppy and a baby, but he was such an easy dog to train! He's so smart and we just love him to death!! I found my title online when I was looking for quotes about dogs. I thought it was quite perfect for him :)
I'm loving this view finder from Basic Grey! How cool is that? I love that you can put any kind of paper behind it and it totally changes the look of it...or you could just leave it and use it as a subtle accent for your page!
I put the journaling on a tag that I tucked behind the photo. It reads: "When we got Luca he was 12 weeks old. We knew he was going to be a decent size dog, but we had no idea just how big he would end up! He is a big moose, but he is the most gentle, loving dog there is! When we decided we wanted a dog, God found the perfect one!"
