Naughty or Nice?

I couldn't resist doing this layout about my daughter's darling dappled dachshund! Wit is the cutest little guy, and always makes us laugh when he comes to our house for a visit. When he was about a year old, we took him to have his picture made with Santa, and I don't know who was more unhappy....Santa or Wit. What a moment to remember!!!

If you haven't stopped in at the Crafty Scrapper and seen the brand new Tulle Pleat Trim by Maya Road, you've got to do that...and stock up! Here, I've used the color, Cinnamon, to add definition to the center of the layout, and loved working with it.....I have more ideas for this lovely trim in later projects! Patterned papers used here are Bo Bunny's "Father Christmas" and "Blitzen". What a treat they are to work with!  Other supplies used are Maya Road's Mini Set, "Autumn", red Mini Market Stickers by October Afternoon, Cream Making Memories paint, Diamond Stickles, "Let It Snow" Kraft and "Time Flies" Kraft Clocks by Maya Road. "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink by Ranger/Tim Holtz gave tons of definition to the edges of the distressed paper.

Techniques used in this layout include tearing, distressing, inking and rolling of paper. Also, machine stitching and fussy cutting helped to create additional detail. 

Thanks for taking a peek! .........Patty Rogers, Design Team Member
