All The Colors of the Rainbow!
Just look at that! No. Really. Just LOOK! Isn't it the most wonderful thing you have seen today?! I love Sharpies. I really really really love them. They make me happy.
Do you want to know what else makes me happy? The Hubbums. The Hubbums makes me really really really really happy. I love him even more than I love Sharpies. Really! Guess how I got these fabulous brand new, wonderfully scented, brightly colored sticks of goodness! GUESS!!!! Yup! I came home the other day and right there hanging on my key hook was a HUGE package of wonderfulness! Pure, unadulterated Sharpie goodness!!!! The Hubbums bought them for me 'cause he knows I love 'em like crazy! They have these great 'limited edition' cafe colors! PLUS...there are TWO, count 'em, TWO different greys in there!!! Combine that with the greys that I already have and I can do some seriously fabulous shadowing and shading! Oh, for the joy of all things Sharpie!!!!
Sharpies make me happy.
The Hubbums makes me super duper happy.
Scrapbooking makes me happy, too. And I actually did some!
The Use Your Stash challenge this week was to use PAINT! So, I grabbed my can of chalkboard spray paint and had a little bit of fun!
I used a pre-made die cut as a mask to create the paw pattern on the bottom of the page. I was running late with this one, so it didn't go up as my official DT page, but I wanted to share it with you guys in hopes of encouraging you to get out your paint and participate in the challenge! Don't forget...if you do all of the challenges this month you will be eligible for one great big prize!!!
To add some extra detail to my layout I created a border using my VersaMark pen on the bottom of the page and then I heat embossed it with clear powder to give it some extra oomph! The top border is just a thin strip cut from patterned paper. Super easy and it made such a difference when I added it to the page! Here are a couple of close ups.
I also used a bit of acrylic paint under the 'unconditional' sticker so the words could be seen clearly. I love the way that part turned out! Overall, I am actually really happy with this layout! The subject matter doesn't hurt, though. A man and his dog. It's a wonderful thing!!! I really love the photos I have of the two of them together. They are always better off when they are together.
Let me know what you think! And don't forget to stop over at Use Your Stash to check out the challenge!
