Staying bunkered down at home for the weekend while we wait out Hurricane Irene here on the East Coast. Wishing all my scrapbooking and blogging friends a safe weekend!
I have been creating all morning, most projects I can't share yet - but I do have one layout I to show you. I'm making a scrapbook for my best friend who is due in any day now :) She has a BIG, lovable chocolate lab who is about to have a "baby brother". I had to create a special page for him in the scrapbook for all of those cute puppy/baby pics.
The "Furever My Friend" set at The Digi Bistro store is my favorite! And I used several cuts on this layout:

I think it's my favorite page I made for her so far! :) The name of this set is included in the collection, perfect for this scrapbook layout's title!
There are some adorable doggie cuts, I chose 2 of them that best resembled her dog. Some of these have spots you can also cut, but I left them out as he is solid brown. I just had to add google eyes!
All of my diecuts are on popdots for dimension :)
The bone is also included in this set, and I used my new favorite Scrappy Mom Stamps "Raining Cats and Dogs"to stamp "I woof you!" on each of the them.
The scallop mats were made with the Stylish Edges #5 file - perfect for 4x4 square photos. I embellished each of them with my EK Success ticket punch and another Scrappy Mom Stamps sentiment from the same set. These are popped up, so her photos can slide under.
The doghouse was so fun embellish! I used my Cuttlebug "distressed stripes" folder on the red layer to make it appear wood-like. I also added a little sign for her dog's name instead of the paw included in the set... and another bone!
I hope she enjoys this page as much as I do! :) Be sure to stop by the Digi Bistro blog and facebook page to see what the rest of the design team is creating. A new set will debut on Monday and a new challenge introduced on Tuesday!
There's still time to participate in the "step card" challenge. See all the details here.
Have a great weekend! :)
