Must Love Dogs –A Scrapbook Layout

I have an awesome job. I work for a great company and I love the people, the culture and the way the company takes care of everyone. Not to mention the kick ass parties. We also do some pretty cool events and celebrate each holiday in our own crazy and fantastic ways.

Must Love Dogs

The story: On Valentine’s Day we had a photo contest where your team had to pick a movie title which best represented your relationship. Our team of girls decided that since we all have and love our dogs we would do our theme with the movie Must Love Dogs (sorry your head got cut off when I had it enlarged and printed Krystal!). We brought our dogs in as living props for our photo, ha, and were thrilled when we won! My puppy is the Siberian Husky (Ryker) that refused to cooperate and look at the camera. ;)

The layout: I am loving the doily look and found it was the perfect addition on this layout and was inspired by the challenge at  Scrap Fit to decorate with a doily. I knew I wanted to use hearts on the layout since it was around a Valentine’s photo and so used the patterned paper (American Crafts) paired up with some chipboard pieces by Pebbles. Hearts and doilies are just made for each other right?! ;) The washi tape and thickers are also American Crafts. The cute little doggy prints are from a Skipping Stones Design set and were stamped in gray on the background cardstock.

Tip to Note: The colors of the layout were completely influenced by the patterned paper. From the washi tape, to the base cardstock, and the chipboard accents I made all color choices based on that piece of paper. It’s really not a tip, but I love to play with a few colors from the patterned paper I worked with to complement the layout. There is yellow, gray and orange, plus a little pink on the photo mat that offset the paper and bring it all together.

We’ve definitely done some awesome events and great parties, can’t wait to scrap more of these and share!
