Dog Gone Tired

I had some extra time to play around with my scrapbooking this weekend and was able to complete a few LOs!! Gotta love a lazy weekend!! (Although I wouldn't say it was too lazy... I managed to get all the walls and trim washed down in about 7 rooms and touched up the trim with fresh paint!! That's productive, right?!) So this LO was done from a sketch I found at Practical Scrappers. It is of my daughter, Lauren, and our dog Jasmine... who seems to be totally enjoying herself!!  LOL!! So, I decided to stitch the flower which I thought was a great idea until I was only half way done and realized how rediculously long it was taking!! To add a little extra, I strung on a few beads... really like the way that looks!!

Cartridges are Graphically Speaking and All Mixed UP
Paper is DCVW and American Crafts

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog and looking at my LO!! Have a fabulous Sunday!

can I tell you how much I look forward to your comments! you mean a lot to me and I never thought about making new friends w/ my blog!

ok so I am commenting here for both LO's...this one is sooo cool and the stitching w/ beads in my fav although I just love the big bold paper for the extra large flower.

you'er technique LO is bad azz! believe it or not I have yet to try masking..maybe thats next for me! I also think the flowers are sick...that one might be hard to try b/c I've never had coffee so no filters for me!

great stuff sister! and YES you kicked butt this weekend AND crafted! thats more then I was able to do!
