Sweet Friend 36

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, October 22, 2013 @ 11:59 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having a great week! Today I have the day off from work so I played around with some of my favorite paper crafting products. I scrapped a layout featuring my sweet little furry friend, Gretchen :)
To create the background, I layered the beautiful 13arts Spring Morning patterned paper then added texture and design using the Fleur-de-Lis stencil. I added color using my own mist made from Blu Raspberry ink then randomly stamped the text background from Collage Backgrounds. For the title, I stamped a sentiment from Tropical Sensations on a pretty label made using a Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two die.
I wanted Gretchen to be my focal point, so I trimmed around her photo, layered her on top of a die cut frame made using a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight die from 13arts Cold Wall patterned paper:
For inspiration, I joined along with the 13arts October challenge focusing on the pretty color combination of blues and black and for symmetry ~ I gave Gretchen angelic metallic wings :)
Gretchen's angelic wings and all the flowers allowed me to join along with the ScrapMemory challenge:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Keeping the Best sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you enjoyed my layout!
Be Sweet ;)
