B is for Ball

Good Morning Everyone.

Today I have for you another Scrapbook Layout. 

This layout was made for Leo who was relaxing on the grass after playing with his ball in the garden. 

 This is the photo that inspired me to make the page, the photo was took in the spring time and I used spring colours for my layout.

This is my attempt of making a sketch. Please excuse the colours I will get better at it and maybe next time the puppy wont have a green head.   I took some inspiration from Faith Abigail Designs for my sketch so I do need to give her, the recognition she deserves.

 The Page - Standard 12 x 12 The blue has been cut down to 11.5 x 11.5 inches to give it a nice mat and layered effect.  With a photo of 4inch by 3.5 inches. With mats of 1/4 inch increments
and a journal panel of 4inches by 1 inch.

The sun has been cut from Create a Critter using my Cricut Machine, and was cut at 2.5 inches, I inked it using yellow ink pad and then edged it with an orange ink pad. I used Peachy Keen face stamp highlighted the eyes with a white pen, chalked the cheeks and added white highlights to each side, added a very faint chalk to the mouth and highlighted the "tongue" area with a white line

The puppy was cut using my Cameo and was cut at 4.560inch wide by 4.665 inch high. His eyes were stamped using a peachy keen stamp. I added my own red collar to him and a little tag, added white highlight stitching around it and added the initial "L" for Leo on it. To finish him I added stitching in dark brown to his ears, paws and feet. The pink part of his feet are not on the file I created these in the studio software

The title was cut from Nate ABC using my Cricut machine, and it was cut at 2.5 inches
The Clouds were from Create a Critter and were cut at 2inch, 1.5inch and 1 inch and then embossed using the Cuttlebug Bubbles embossing folder

The tree is a free file from Stink' Cute Paper Piecings
It was cut using the cameo the trunk is cut at 1.460inch wide by 3.235inches wide
The Bush was cut at 4.995 inches wide by 5.960inches high
I trimmed the tree so it fitted perfectly to the edge of the layer

The Grass and the Wavy border are free designs from Birds cards and have been cut using the cameo 
Grass - 11.915inches wide by 1.485 inches high - Two of the very tips of the grass need tripping slightly as they slightly over hang
Wavy Border - 11.605inch wide by 2.010 inches high

This is what the layout looks complete with the photograph. I just need to add my journalling to it and then it will be done.

Wow a super duper long post, but I do like to give details of the sizes that I used, what machine I used and what file I used when I can, I hate it when I come across something that inspires me but then have no idea were to get the file from.

I am going to enter this into the following challenges.
