"That Layout"

My friend, Denise is having a blog candy giveaway on her blog. She is giving away some super yummy stuff. She has an awesome blog that you should be following anyway so go check it out!!
I am now on the DT at Scrap Our Stash
The challenge this month is to do "That Layout". The one that you have put off doing for whatever reason. This is a great little push to help you get it done.
I chose to do a layout about my dog, Tucker, who died last year. When he died it was just too fresh and hard to think of doing anything. It has been a year and it was still hard (I cried the whole time I was scrapping) but it was doable. And now I have a nice page to help honor his memory.
I am a major "dog person" and this dog was my kid before I had kids and he was my kid until the day he died. (he is still my kid) If you aren't this kind of dog person you will probably think I am a little silly but that is okay. I loved him and he loved me. And I am glad he was in my life for 14 years. And if love could have kept him alive he would have lived forever.
I used paper from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers and some Sassafras Lass Alphas for the title work. I used a Sassafras Lass Stamp and a Basic Grey stamp with some brown Ranger Archival ink. And the sketch is from Sketches in Thyme
I made the leaves by stamping the leaf pattern on my pp and then I used my bone folder to outline the veins and then folded each vein to give the leaves depth and dimension.
I would like to encourage you to go over to Scrap Our Stash and check out all the great creations that people are doing for this challenge. And use this challenge to encourage yourself to do "That Layout".
