Tug of War

This layout is about none other than Rupert!  A subject that I so rarely choose to scrap about.  Ha, you say! 
When we go to the park for his walks one of his favourite games is Tug of War!  Thought it would be cute to take a couple pictures and document this.
 Actually, thinking about it, it is dependent on his moods believe it or not.  If he is quite wound up and full of endless energy, he will want to rampantly play a relentless game of fetch.  However, if he is feeling slightly agitated or annoyed then fetch is off the table and instead he wants to play tug of war with his stick of choice and he can be quite tenacious about it.  His walk isn't complete without either a game of fetch or tug of war, usually the latter.
I wanted to use the green Simple Stories paper as my background paper as I thought it would mirror the colour of the grass nicely.  However I wanted to add a bit more colour to the layout and thought the strip of the PL Blush 4x6 card sticking out along the right side of the photo would do nicely.  I then noticed that the "Good Story" 3x4 card in the same line would go well with the colours on the 4x6 card.  So I stuck this along the top of the pocket, between the picture and the background paper.
SUPPLIES USED | The lime green background paper is by Simple Stories from the DIY Boutique line called Boutique Stripes Green and is doubled sided with black & white lines on the other side. I then mounted the photo onto a PL Blush card which I then mounted on the green paper. On the top, on the left, is a "tab" of the top of  PL card from the same Blush line.  The "Life is Good" sticker is by Bella Blvd from their Alpha bits line, this one called Thankful designed by Stephanie Hunt.   The blue and pink stars are by Studio Calico.  The stickers spelling out "Tug" are by Simple Stories called Sn@p Stickers Letters.  The green "of" letters are by LilyBee Designs from the Sweet Shoppe line and the letters spelling out "War" are by the same.
 With the letter stickers and the stars for the title I wanted to bring out the colours from the PL card so chose colours that would compliment it or were similar to them.  I like how it all came together. I then added one further sticker "Life is Good" by Bella Blvd along the bottom of the pic.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look!

  1. This is sooo cute!! I have a beagle mix that looks so much like Rupert. We adopted our dog, so we don't know what he is mixed with. Is Rupert a Jack Russell? :) Evie

    1. Hello Evie!! Thanks for having a look and leaving a comment. Yes, Rupert is a Jack Russell but my partner is convinced he is mixed with something else, he thinks a Basenji - because of the ears and colouring. The lady we got him from did have other mixed litters of JRT's with Chihuahua's, Scotties and Bison Frise. Would love to see a pic of yours!

  2. Hey Christine! Here is a layout I did with our Murphy. http://artfulscrapbooking.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/the-best-there-ever-was/
