Love 42

Hi there! I hope you are off to a great start of the New Year! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of myself and my sweet dogs Griffin (on the left) and Gretchen (on the right).
I added lots of Gesso, texture paste and inks to create the background:
I embellished with a variety of die cuts, flowers and lace trimming:


For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sketchabilities sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I joined along with the current Scrap Around The World challenge:
Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
