Happy November! Today I have the cover of a new mini album I'm working on. I know I still need to post more pictures of the house warming mini, but I haven't taken the pictures yet. Between being sick and taking care of our dog post surgery and all of the other usual things, I haven't had much time in my craft room. I was able to start this new album though. I wanted to get it done before Scooter (our dog) goes back to the vet for his check-up. His doctor loves him so I thought she might like to see how spoiled he has been during his recovery.
For the album itself I used a couple of chipboard books from the dollar spot at Michaels. One book was square and the other book was rectangular with scalloped ends. I combined them by alternating the pages. All of the materials used came from my stash, including the books. I bought them months ago (maybe even last year) just in case....
The patterned paper is by Piggy Tales and the solid cardstock is just what I had laying around. I think all of it except the blue title background was from my old scraps. The barb wire ribbon I thought was perfect to represent stitches. I've had it for a couple of years. I love it, but couldn't figure out a way to use it until now.
The dog is from Back Yard Barbeque. The dog house is from Everyday Paper dolls. Surgery and the sling are from Dr Check Up. Scooter is from Boys will be Boys and the blue background tag is from Art Philosophy pg 45. For the grass I used a Martha Stewart icicle punch.
Once I get some of the pictures developed from Scooters surgery and recovery I'll be able to finish the inside pages. Be back soon.
