Happy Sunday my crafty friends!!
Before I get rollin with this weeks challenge I wanna apologize for not hitting everyone's blog to leave you a hello and a comment on your entries. Our DT gets an email when a layout has been uploaded to the linky thing on the blog.....USUALLY!!! I only got a handful of them this week so I was extremely surprised when I checked our blog this morning to see who won and saw that there were 26 entries last week. WHAT????? I have no clue what happened to my notifications.......this week I will stay on top of things!!
Now that I have that outta the way are you ready for this weeks challenge?? It's a super cute one!! And you can feature your furry four legged family members :)
This week it's all about your pets! Actually any animals, if you are like me and you have no pets (unless you count my children,who act a buncha wild animals) you may have to get a little creative :) Think zoo photos, wildlife or nature photos, maybe even stuffed animals?? I can rationalize pretty much anything......lol.
Now, I have a little back story to my layout.......aren't you lucky?? LOL.
One day last summer the boys and I were out riding around and we made a pit stop at a local grocery store to get a couple of cold drinks on a hot day. And right there in the parking lot was the biggest cow I have ever seen. Not a real cow......but a statue used for advertising purposes. I dunno if you get Mayfield Dairy products where you are, but they are a local dairy and their stuff is everywhere you look here.
So there was this cow as big as a building on a trailer so they could pull it, but they had just unloaded it in the parking lot, trailer and all, and left it unattended.
And of course, me being me, we got out and looked around it and then proceeded to touch, fondle and climb on the cow.....lol. Luckily I had my cell with me so I could at least snap some pix. I got some of Jesse and some of Brandon.....none of them together tho :(
So i decided to use Brandon in this layout, because he pointed out that there are way more layouts of Jesse than anyone else in the house. Sigh.................sibling rivalry, ya gotta love it.
And without further ado......here is my layout for the Dancing with the Paws challenge!!!
Told ya.....thats one big cow!!!
All my papers are from Crate Paper's Toy Box. I used some odds and ends from Bella Blvd, the title,and the chipboard.........which has a glare on it so it's not showing well in the photo.
I also added this cool burlap flower with some punched circles that I inked up and added a springy thingy under it.......lol. It's really cool cuz it wobbles everywhere! I added pop dots to just about every layer here becuawse since the page is so simple I really wanted that extra dimension. Again, I didn't get a photo to show that but you are ALL welcome to drop by here anytime you are in Knoxville to have a peek :)
All in all I'm pretty happy with this one. And I wanted to show you that if you don't have furry ones at home you can easily go another direction!!
So there it is!! As always you ahve until the coming Saturday at 9 pm to link r up!!!! I hope you will play along with weeks and do some dancing with the paws!!
