I’m sharing a layout I made recently while having a crafty day with one of my girlfriends. I had a lot of fun making this layout while chit chatting and laughing with a friend. Do you enjoy scrapping with friends or do you like lone scrapping better?
I prefer scrapping together sometimes but I definitely have the problem of chatting way more than scrapping most of the time 🙂
These photos are of my doggies getting muddy. When we lived in East TN, they would get so muddy sometimes when it would rain a bunch. I snapped some photos of them getting particularly muddy way back in 2006.
This layout started with a sketch from Creative Scrappers. This is their last sketch challenge, and I am totally bummed about it! They have been my favorite scrapbook sketch site for a long time!! My finished layout didn’t end up looking much like the sketch.
I used the following patterned papers: Studio Calico Here & There collection called “Charlotte”, Echo Park Dots & Stripes “Mango” & “Quartz”, and My Mind’s Eye Chalk Studio “Chalk Talk” paper. These are all much older papers, but you may be able to find them online somewhere. I really loved the greyish dots papers. The vellum with white printed lines is from a past Studio Calico kit.
For the lightest grey patterned paper, I used Smoky Slate ink from Stampin’ UP with a sponge dauber to ink up the edges. For the darker grey patterned paper, I used the Stampin’ UP Basic Gray ink with a sponge dauber.
The teal patterned paper is just a scrap I have had for a while. I am not sure where it is from, but I think it is from American Crafts textured cardstock.
To decorate my layout, I used some enamel dots from Studio Calico and Freckled Fawn. I also used an orange clip from Studio Calico, a cute little heart from Freckled Fawn, and a misc bone paper clip from my stash (a dear friend sent me that! SO cute!!).
For the title I used some Thickers from my stash along with some tiny alphas from Studio Calico.
Finally, I did my little journaling with a Project Life pen (I prefer the .5mm point).
And that’s it for this layout. I hope you enjoyed it! I had a lot of fun making this one.
