Life is Ruff Layout

Good afternoon fellow scrappers!  Today's post is a page that was created for The Nifty Pixel.  This page is based on one of the July Page Drafts sketches release titled: Tucked In V.1.

Here I am with what I like to call my 'eldest son'.  :-)  This is me taking selfies with my pup Toby.  He's my faithful companion & little shadow.  He's all about the photography as well.  I've been taking photos of him since he was 12 weeks old which is when we got him.  So he's a total ham when it comes to taking selfies.  

Here's the July Page Drafts release.  Click on this link to find out more info on these versatile sketches.

The background of my page was made with a combination of stamping, masking, ink splatters & by randomly adhering red & blue sequins.  Papers used is from the 'Felicity' collection by Authentique.

I've used my favorite method of journaling which is by storing my thoughts on a small scroll that also serves as a unique embellishment on my page.

I've used a couple of Prima stamps to create the faux stitching along the borders of my page.

I've made a brief tutorial on how I go about making these scrolls.  If interested you can find that tutorial here.   

To add some dimension to my page I've adhered several of the embellishments with dimensional foam and/or pop dots.  I've always been a fan of adding a bit of dimension to my layouts.

Supplies: Paper - Authentique, Flowers - Prima, I Am Roses, Flair - Panda Eight Designs, Stamps: Prima Marketing, Masks: Prima Marketing, Mists: Heidi Swapp, Other - Sequins, Glitter Tape, Polaroid Frame, Black Doilies
