Once Upon A Sketch (OUAS).
Here's my little fur-baby Toby taking center stage again. It helps a lot that he's all white--it's easy to match him with any color! :-) The page is based on how much our lives has changed since Toby came into our lives. Pets really are like another member of our families that provide us with unconditional love & loyalty. My journaling which is stored in the scroll reads as follows:
My Toby--our Toby really...ever since you became a member of our family you've filled a void we didn't even know we had. You bring sunshine & laughs to our otherwise mundane lives. Your 'childlike' ways never cease to surprise or amaze us--and we'll never figure out how such a small dog can have such an enormously loud bark! You're our Toby--but I see you as 'my' Toby. I was the first one to hold you as a puppy & look into those big brown trusting eyes. When I look at you today, I see a grown dog with eyes that are still trusting, but are now also filled with unconditional love, devotion & loyalty. You belong to our family, but to me you'll always be my wet-nosed confidant, my undercover furry friend...my sweet little Toby.
Manor House Creations--I'm loving their flowers more and more lately! I've tucked a bit of aqua & purple tulle underneath my large flower to soften the page a bit.
shop. So keep an eye out for them!
Dusty Attic. My title was printed on a transparency, cut out & adhered with clear dry glue.
I really liked this one particular metal word band by Tim Holtz that reads: "live the life you've imagined". That would be my Toby. Oh he really does live a 'dog's life'. Eats all he wants, sleeps all he wants--total pampered pooch...even in the photo he's holding a bone that he happily chewed on for hours and hours!
The pearl flourishes are by Prima. The small glass vial is from my stash--I've filled it with small beads, also from my stash.
Ranger Non-Stick Craft Sheet & then dipped my paint brush into the ink & painted away.
I've also tucked a bit of cheese cloth behind my trio of pictures.
