Puppy Dreams

I just recently discovered this 3-year-old photo of my daughter and our Toby when she was going through her phone photos, and I had to scrap it!

This page will be submitted for the August Challenge at Scrap around the World and Rochelle Spears' August Scrappy Friends Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

The lovely mood board for Scrap Around the World:

The roses and vines on the shoes on the lower left inspired me, as did the soft colours in the image on the lower right. The hair ornament in the lower center image made me think of pearls. You can find their challenge here:

For the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I chose the left vertical column, which includes one photo, dry embossing and pearls. You can find their challenge here:
I used some fabulous Gina's Designs chipboard pieces and cardstock doilies; I heat-embossed a flourish pattern onto the chipboard, and they look much prettier IRL!
I made the roses by tracing the pieces of ones I had, and misted them with Tattered Angels rouge, then lightly brushed chalk ink over them to soften the colour. The lacing is run through strips punched with the Martha Stewart lattice punch.
The bricks were dry embossed with a Tim Holtz folder, and rubbed with the same chalk ink as the roses. I added random punchwork around the edges, and inked the edges with TH Tattered Rose.

Thanks so much for stopping by-have a terrific day!
