Perfect Pair for a Perfect Friday


Ahhh... People love Fridays... It's usually a day to finish a hard week of work... get some rest...  relax...  hang out with friends... have quality family time... and start a great weekend.

I've always loved this day, but I admit it's all about the attitude and the mindset for the day... And if you think like "Fridays" everyday, you will feel as good as you feel the real Friday... Anyway...  if Fridays make people happier... it's ok to think they are specials.

And I so needed this Friday...

Today I'll share a nice layout I made about how special my dog is... as part of our family.

I used several stamps from Unity Stamp Co. and combined in different ways.  The photo I chose is from my husband and my dog, Malbec, so the "perfect pair" stamp goes perfect with it.  I also used the one of the "date ticket" to document date.


I used the Basic Gray "Max and Whiskers" collection papers and lots and lots of stripes all over the layout...  So sweet!!! 



Even my husband's pants have stripes...

I wanted to fill the page with lots of elements and coordinated colors on purpose...  Wanted to use good quantity of different papers and elements in just one page...





The "family time" stamp served as title... and the hearts were perfect for this corner here.  I stamped the hearts, and stamped separately to cut the large one and show 3D; also added glossy accents and glitter to make it stand out.




My dog is so loving and special...  He deserves to be in my documented life!!!



Thanks for your comments.  Hope you liked my page... Have a nice weekend!

GORGEOUS layout!!! I love how you have combined stamps! Malbec looks so sweet :) Of course he needs to be documented! They are like are children <3 What on earth would we do without them? Malbec reminds me of my doggie....always wanting to be a lap dog ;)

To answer your question from my blog, my doggie's name is Badabing. He is a 12 year old Pitbull that has been with us since he was old enough to leave his mama. He is such a sweet, loving and gentle soul. I am very blessed :) I actually have 2 now, so I better put a picture up of Meadow too or she may think we are playing favorites ;)

Oh, what a wonderful page. I love all the elements and papers. Dogs are such an important part of our lives, aren't they? My dogs have their own scrapbook, I have so many layouts of them.
