Not your average girl

Hi there,

Back again to share the second layout I made over the weekend:-) This one is all about Cookie my little golden retriever.. She is the most athletic dog I have ever seen.. These are some of the pics my husband took of her about six months ago:-)

The paper for this layout was Bo Bunny dots paper (grey and brown) and some Earth love paper by Cosmo Cricket.
I know it looks rather simple compared to all my usual layered and heavily detailed layouts, but I wanted this to be clean, so that the pictures show well..

Used some orange card stock and punched out a row of butterflies and set it over my other papers so that the different patterns would show through:-)

I have tied the string using a technique that I saw used on Kims blog, she is so talented.. Love her layouts :-) This is the link you can find her at...

The title was first written by pencil and then traced over with a black pen.. I love the grungy outcome! I used a Basic grey rub on as well (No.1), this is from their Basics line.

Just below my journalling strips I added an American Crafts Flair Badge to match the yellow-grey colour scheme. (The orange paper and brown dot paper was added so that the photograph tones were matched..)

To balance the page I added a punched scallop strip from some more Earth love paper and added some layered punched circles as well..
P.S: To view all photographs full size, just click on them:-) you can catch all the details ( and mistakes!!) he he
Have a great day everyone!!
