Here is my take on this delicious recipe:

Puppy "Love"
This layout is, or course, about the new additions to my family. Roo, Paris and Gizmo are just the cutest things I have seen since I had my children, so many years ago.
Their faces just melt my heart into mush.

For this layout, I used My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection. I used Recollections rhinestone swirls, Prima flowers and some jute.

I started with a cream light patterned paper for the background. The a damask brown piece of paper and a red piece of paper with cream polka dots.

The jute I formed into hearts, then I painted it with Mod Podge, so it would keep it's shape.

I used my Zutter distressing machine to distress the edges of the brown and red polka dot paper. Then I inked the papers with dark brown ink.

I also spilled tea on the cream colored patterned paper, but after drying, it was so light, you could barely tell.

I cut the title with a combination of two things. "Puppy was cut using the Making Memories Slice machine. The red primitive heart was cut using a Sizzix small hand held die, and a hammer.

I hope you enjoy my take on this months recipe. 

I hope you like it enough to play along.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
