Layout: the LOVE of a dog

My friend, my pal, my baby...My Ebony.

This layout was inspired by two challenge blogs:

once upon a sketch blog
scrap africa

Both blogs had great new sketches this week that helped to get the creative juices flowing.  On this page I was working on using layers.  Of course I had to be creative with the 6' paper to get all my layers looking right.

The Kaszazz designer paper I used as a base had words that referred to Ebony and Ivory, and a vision for a future where all live in harmony.  I thought this was perfect for my Ebony's page

The Prima Bling I cut in half to use on both sides at the bottom.  My journalling is hidden on a tag on the can just see it poking out with it's little lace finish.  The journalling tells of how we love to spend time with the girls at the park and how for us it is 'Family' time.  And the two little flags were added last, I found them on the Prima packaging as I was cleaning up and thought, Wow, they are just what I need to finish this.  The wording on the top flag says 'memories with you' and the second one says ' cherished moments'
