Percy-Christmas Pet Layout

I discovered a new challenge blog this week and was pleasantly surprised to discover it was owned by one of my Lasting Memories DT sisters, Darcy. What  I really loved about this blog was the fact they have a double layout sketch that uses lots of pictures. When you have years of pictures that need scrapped that is a major plus!

I am working on a dog memory album as a Christmas present for James. You may remember that Percy died of a brain tumor. So I am hoping to have it completely done for this coming Christmas. It's June so just maybe?????

I used Webster's Pages Retired Waiting for Santa for this layout.I am on a no buying paper until I have made a significant dent in the current supply path. So far it is working:)

Tips to make the "Percy" ornaments:
I cut out the letter ornaments from Webster's Page's Waiting for Santa paper using a 1.75" circle punch. I then used scrapbooking tape to attach a safety pin to the back of the ornament to that the bottom end was exposed at the top of the ornament.

I then used some scrap gold cord  to hang the ornaments from the top of the page. I placed foam tape under the ornaments to give them dimension.

A Gem of a Challenge: Use felt or Fabric (ribbon or Lace do not count) I used cream and red velvet pleats.
