A for Animals

Good Morning, I hope that you are all well and ready for a new year of challenges. Today marks the start of the alphabet again over on the ABC Christmas Challenge and we are starting things off nice and easy.

Pop over to their store, cos they sell some real cuties.  StampFairy are offering one lucky  random winner a $10 gift certificate.

I've decided to do something a little different for this challenge.  We brought home a new pup about a few weeks before Christmas (she was my early Christmas present). I took some shots of her checking out the tree and I figured that this would be a perfect excuse to create a scrapbook layout. I've based the layout on a sketch from Sketch Savvy and completed it using papers and embellies from the Jovial collection by Basic Grey. I love the effect that I was able to achieve by having the co-ordinating embellishments for this line. I think that I may need to consider buying like this more often as it made the task of creating the layout so easy and I love the finished result.
I do hope that you will join us for the challenge. Now that Christmas is over I am looking forward to spending a little more time looking at all of your blogs for inspiration.
