This layout just so happens to be based on our family dog Toby. I 'made' time to play along with CSI's Case No. 110. First of all, I once again loved the theme & second Emma provided one of her fabulous sketches! I couldn't resist. Her sketches cut down my scrap time practically in half since I don't have to sit there for hours trying to figure out a design that I'm happy with.
One of the options for the testimony is to journal from a pet's point of view--which is what I did...but I also took the pictures from Toby's point of view. So in all the photos you'll see my husband's oh-so-sexy legs! lol
For the testimony, I wrote my journaling from Toby's point of view--or at least what I believe he may be thinking.
Once again I did some coloring on this page. With a white gel pen I 'colored' in the splats & splatters that I traced with the use of a Crafter's Workshop stencil.
I used molding paste to add a bit of texture along with a Prima Marketing stencil.
I wrote the journaling based on how I feel Toby thinks just by observing his personality through all these years.
Journaling reads: I've seen many legs in my lifetime & after 6 years (that would be human years--I've lost count as to how much that would be in dog years) I'm pretty sure that I'll be seeing many more legs in the future. To me, seeing legs is about as common of a view as faces are to you humans. How you balance yourselves on just two legs is beyond me--I personally need all four of mine.
However, none of this matters--you are my family & though I may not be able to talk, I do listen & communicate my thoughts through my eyes & tail. I do not have a shoulder for you to cry on but I do my best to comfort you by lightly laying my head on your lap. I may not be able to hug you but I will stand by you when you are lonely. I feel that I should always try my best to make you laugh--even when you're feeling sad & I know that I love you unconditionally & have pledged my everlasting loyalty to you.
To my sweet Toby--the best dog in the world!
The Felt Shoppe--they are so well made & the felt adds a soft touch to my page. The owner has several items all made with--you guessed it...lots of felt!
