And They Call It Puppy Love

Good Afternoon Everyone, 

How are you all? Hope you weekend is going well.. Here in the North East we had horrendous rain and unfortunately a lot of local places to me have suffered with flooding. A well known seaside town had a nightmare of a time with cars getting washed away.. Anyway it is over with now and the been clean up can begin, luckily Mr Sun has decided to come out and play again and help with the big clean up.

Anyway today is the start of a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, and this time it is being hosted by AshaAsha has chosen the theme of 

"And They Called It Puppy Love" 

We would love to see your furry friends new and old. 

So on to my creation for the theme, actually it was a perfect challenge as it made me make a start on my Leo's scrapbook that I keep saying I want to get started but haven't got around to it yet. 

So I decided to use the photo I love my hubby (partner at the time) took this pic this is the day we went to see him and he is six weeks old. We fell in love straight away and put a deposit down on him there and then, I am telling you them two weeks that I had to wait before I could bring him home, went so slowly. 

The page is a 8x8 scrapbook page, which i matted with a 7 3/4 x 7 3/4 heart paper. To give it a bit of different I used the largest and second largest Grand Nestie Label 1 dies and off set them, one I left plain and used a small nib pen to give dots, the second layer is a paw print layer. 
I matted Leo onto a cream mat and then a dark brown mat. 
The writing has been cut using Ocuplant Ovals again from spellbinders, the title, dog and banner have all been cut using the cricut machine. To finish it of I added a little red collar to the dog (Leo had a red collar whilst he was a puppy) a red heart in between his paws, and six card candi, I then went around the base layer using a dark brown pen and completed with faux stitching. 

The challenges I am entering this into are:-
Brown Sugar Challenge - Animals -13/09
 Creative Fingers Challenge Blog - Anything Goes - 13/09


I hope you like the page, and I hope to see you all joining in with the current challenge.
