Today I'm sharing this layout I made recently about my little pup Teddy. My DAD is a big dog fan and he absolutely fell in love with Teddy-Boo. Since the theme of our blog hop is Dad's and Grad's I decided to make this layout for my dad's office. He has quite the collection of my handmade goodies in his office now.
Teddy is a liver pepper schnauzer and I got him from the breeder when he was 9 weeks old. He was the tiniest ball of brown fur in the beginning (and super hard to photograph hence the blurry picture) then slowly his fur changed to a chocolate milk color. You can kind of see the change happening in this picture. Teddy isn't so little anymore. He's actually almost 8 now but I found a few pictures of him from when he was a pup and I just had to make a layout (or a few...How many dog layouts are too many??)
I use this negative cut out on the layout from an alpha set. This left over has been in my stash for years....YEARS. I added a bit of ombre' paper in the background. The outline of the "i" and "u" and little pink heart were last minute touches. I think it added the perfect finishing touch.
These have to be my favorite flowers from Petaloo. They have so much texture, color, dimension, and nooks and crannys. They added the perfect softness to the layout and remind me of Teddy's fur.
A few additional details.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
