Love Your Pet

Oh my goodness! Do we ever have a great challenge this week for ya over at Exploring Cricut!! Our theme is "Love Your Pet". Make a card, layout or papercraft containing your favorite pet or any animal of your choice. And ya'll will never guess what I made for this challenge! Noooooo, not a card!!!! You heard me right! Not a card!!!! Is something wrong with Sharon?!! No, nothing wrong. I just had to make a layout using some pictures I took of our Bassett Hound when we had snow last month. T-Bone loved it and had a great time playing in it. I used Doodlecharms cartridge for the snowman. He can be found on page 82. I cut him at 3.5 inches. I hid his face and the button holes so I could use some black faux pearls and buttons instead. The tree is from Paper Doll Dress Up. It is on page 52 and I cut it at 6 inches. I then ran it through my Big Kick using the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder. The bg snowflake paper is open stock from Hobby Lobby. The top left picture was taken in the morning when it had just started snowing good, so not a lot on the ground yet and the light was still pretty good. The other two were taken late in the afternoon when it had snowed like crazy for a while and then we had thunder snow and it came down fast and hard for about an hour giving us two extra inches on top of the two we already had. The outside light wasn't so good any more, but I just had to get pictures of T-Bone playing. I cut white cardstock to put behind the pictures. The journal piece is from an EK punch.
Head on over to Exploring Cricut and check out the pet projects that my DT Sisters and Brother have created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and get busy. Make a new project (no back links please) conatining your favorite pet or any animal and please make sure you use a Cricut cut on your project. Link by 10 pm, EST, Saturday, March 2nd.
Hope ya'll like my layout!!!! :)
