September Pet Challenge

Postby sherelm » Sat Sep 02, 2017 10:48 am

Hello cherries, I'm sorry this is a day late - UGH - bad week, as you all know.  But I'm keeping this sweet and simple - with two choices this month.

1) Do a layout of your pet, but the catch is you are not allowed to use any product that was manufactured for use with animals or pets.  You need to use generic or other themed papers - so you may use Christmas paper for your pet at Christmas, but no animals from the Christmas line, or embellishments.  Just the animal/pet is the only animal.

2) Do a layout using only pet themed papers - in other words manufactured specifically to be used for zoo, pet, animal photos, animals everywhere.  But your photos may not be about animals.  Find those silly dog stickers, or "what can I do with this?" and figure out how to incorporate it into a layout.

You may only do LAYOUTS this time, no cards - it would make it too easy for #2.  So I can't wait to see what you come up with.  As always, Random.org will choose a winner of a $5 gift card at the close of the challenge on the 30th.

And I believe I have paper that I can use! Finally. I'm home another month, and I need to get scrapping.

I have not scrapped in AGES!  I had three layouts in progress for months and finally decided to use the holiday weekend for ME!  And as always, I look to the pet challenge for inspiration given I have millions of pet photos.  Thanks for a needed kick in the but, Sharon!

Consider it my pleasure!!  I love giving kicks in the butts!!  After all, that WAS my maiden name - for real - "Butts".   
I love your layout, I love when you gals can get all this detail on a page and still keep in clean.  I look forward to seeing your great pages, as well!!  Thanks for playing - now get moving on some more challenges!!!

What an adorable little face!  I love the colors you chose and the sweet details you added.  And I have to say, I never thought of the greens hanging from twine, but I LIKE IT!!!  I'm going to steal that for a future layout!!  Thanks for playing Susan!!

Great job on your layout, using up the different coordinating papers was a great idea for your photos!! I'm loving the horses from you and Joannie! Brings back my own memories, when I weighed less than the horse..... anyway!!! 
Thanks for doing my challenge!!

I hope it's ok that the page isn't about the dog, but she is in the pic.

It's ok, I scrapbook.

I did Option #1, using non-pet products for my layout. I used mostly Simple Stories "Reset Girl" and some Freckled Fawn embellies
