Princess Jenna

Hello again

Today I am sharing with you a page I have created about my beautiful girl, Jenna.

I was doing my usual blog hopping at the start of the month and found two challenges that I would love to attempt...
  • A2Z Scraplets April Challenge "You brighten up my day" - check it out here.
  • Pagemaps' My Minds Eye Sketch Challenge - check it out here.  The sketch we have to use is below.

I found this picture in my stash that I had printed a while ago and never got around to scrapbooking.  My beautiful Samoyed, Jenna, is so photogenic and never shys away from the camera!  Being such a close up photo and that she is a white dog (well most of the time she's white, haha!), I decided that a pink and cream colour scheme would be best.
I used Kaisercraft cardstock as my base and sprayed it with my "Cranberry Zing"Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  I have used a beautiful range of papers that I got from my LSS, but unfortunately they don't have the company name on the back!  Using the Accents Cricut cartridge, I cut out my "cloud" shapes in various sizes to fit on my page.  Once I had cut out the large pink patterned paper for my photo mat, I paper saved some of the cardstock so I could make my journal block.  I have inked around all my papers in "pinecone" versa ink.
I have also used a heart shaped doily that I picked up at the craft show recently.  I started layering and grouping my shapes around the central photo mat until I was happy with the end  result.  I have used a large heart cluster rub-on, by Kaisercraft, and my flower cluster over the glimmer mist, instead of the grid in the sketch.    I am a big fan of flowers and flower clusters.  This time I have used flowers from Prima and Green Tara.  The ribbon in my cluster is a simple satin ribbon I got from my last trip to Spotlight. 
Other embellishments used are heart stickers, Scrap FX paw print and Prima lettering.
I hope you like my page and have inspired you to try one of the April Challenges!
Until next time, Happy crafting!
