here is the sketch we were given and it's a Pagemaps sketch, from Pagem aps at

Here is my take on the sketch using photos of our puppy Skye with my brother Adrian. They had a cuddle fest several times a day.

I used stamps from the following Mark's Finest sets:

Hello Butterflies

North American Woods

Fabulous Dogs

I used some embossed paper from my stash, a couple border punches, some film strip and camera transparencies, some Colorbox inks in blue and green, colored the dog from Fabulous Dogs with coloured pencils as well as the butterfly with markers. Then added some green pearls for an accent.

Go on over and see what the other designers have created and enter a layout - you've got nothing to loose and a great stamp set to win.


  1. This is so cute Shirl! Sky is adorable. It looks like she was still a puppy in those pics?

  2. I just have to say I love your cute fur babies. You did an awesome job with your layout.

  3. Amy, yes she was only about 5 weeks old in this picture. I'm working on our puppy scrapbooks trying to finish them up hence all the dog pages. I'm afraid if I leave it I wont finish it.
    thanks for your comments

  4. Great layout Shirl!! Love your take on the sketch, using 3 photos instead of two. Is that some Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon I see on your page??! :)

    1. Hi Gemiel - it's a film strip transparency and camera. thanks for your comments
