Sketchbook 365 - September sketch

And hello again to you all......just popping in quickly to share my layout that I created for Sketchbook 365 September sketch challenge, before heading outside for the afternoon to enjoy the beautiful sunny day that we're having...spring must be on its way!!!
 
So, on with the scrappy business....
 
 

Created using American Crafts "Chap" papers & embellies that have been in my stash for quite a while, and were from a kit from Paper Stories...as well as a few other bits n bobs from my stash.
 
I wanted to create something bright! :)
 
Pic is of our pooch, Oscar, being totally spoilt & getting a neck massage & scratch....while we were camping! LOL...he is one spoilt dog!!!  but we love him to bits <3
Can you see his face in the 3rd photo?  yep you've HIT the spot RIGHT there!
 

And here is the sketch
 
 

Title & journaling (the basics)...and a little bit of background stamping
popping out from under the pp's
 

One of the AC paper rosettes, fabric brad & chipboard frame.
 

And a few brads & flair button...and some drips n splats of different mists
 

I added a little paper/button cluster at the top of the layout....it was just a wee bit too much white space for me without it.
 

And a close up overall view.
 
Journaling on the back of the layout reads:
 
7.4.2013
 
It was a last minute decision to head to Carcoar for the weekend, and we knew that you (Oscar) would want to come too, so of course we packed all your gear up as well and headed off in the van.  Being an inside dog & the weather was starting to cool off dramatically, we needed to come up with somewhere for you to sleep.....so we took your own little tent (lol)...I'm sure people thought we were mad!  You absolutely loved it & each day we'd take you for walks & let you explore the dam & countryside surrounding it.  This Sunday morning, you were being totally spoilt & earned yourself a neck massage, ear rub & a scratch....you were in pure dog heaven & enjoyed every bit of it!
 
 
Okie doke...that's all from me for now.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend....until next time, take care!  xx
