Hello everyone! Today I have a 12 x 12 layout to share featuring lots of fabulous patterned paper from Crate Paper's Wonder collection. It's been awhile since I participated in a challenge so I thought it would be fun to play along with this weeks "Best Friends" challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and this weeks "Create with Critters" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.
I knew I wanted to use these two photos of my cat Pookie but I wasn't sure how I wanted to start this layout so I went through some sketches I had printed and found one from PageMaps that I thought would be fun to use. You can find the sketch I'm using today HERE. I stuck pretty close to the sketch and created the large patterned paper pie chart with lots of different sized patterned paper from Crate Papers 6 x 6 Wonder collection. Once I had all my patterned paper all laid out I added some stitching down all the sides.
Once the background was complete I added my two photos in the center and added my title. The stamp I used originally said "Home is where your dog is" so I cut it apart and used some chipboard alphabet stickers to spell out the word cat.
I wanted the patterned paper to be the main focal point of this layout so I only added a few different embellishments and some random black mist splatters across my page. I hope you enjoyed my layout today! Thanks for visiting!
