Weekly layout – number forty two

Welcome to the forty second layout in the series.

Not a California layout this week but a little story about Buddy. A photo from last year was a good one to use because a) I love this photo and b) it captures that butter wouldn’t melt quality he possesses.

I picked a few papers out, I always tend to go for bright colours when scrapping Bud. There were some little scraps of paper that I wanted to use up so I threw them in the mix too.

Once the photo had been placed on white card there was no going back even thought that wasn’t my plan. But I liked the look and attached the photo right at the top of a 6 inch strip of card.

I placed a narrow strip of orange at the top of the page.

The scraps were all rectangular in shape and the idea of building them up in a block just happened so I went along with that.

Once the papers were in place I felt the page needed more balance at the bottom so I added another strip of the orange paper. I was bold with my title and added it right onto the papers. So unlike me.

Three stars were stamped with Distress Ink and a lovely Tim Holtz swirl stamp.

Cute doggy brads.

I put the stars around the page and added a little washi tape and the brads.

The writing was added in a white pen the help the balance of the white around the page plus it shows up great on that blue.

Cute and fun. And a lovely story about the Budster told.


Weekly Layout is a series of blog posts that I am doing every week in 2012. I am walking through the process of putting the page together with a bit of background to why I picked the design and embellishments for the page. I hope to develop my style and push myself by taking on this challenge. You can see previous weeks here.
