Circles and Rectangles

I've been hanging around a few manufacture blogs checking out the new CHA (craft and hobby association) Trade Show releases.  I'm picking up all sorts of new techniques and having a blast.   I found one layout of interest that used circles and rectangles, so I created my own.

The Story
This is my friend's little Tucker.  He and his wife went to Ohio for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I really haven't been around  dogs since my Bailey Bailey (named him twice because he was the best) passed away.  I thought I'd lost my heart the day he died.  My friend thought it might be good for me to be around another pup.  So enters Tucker into my holidays.

Tucker is a cutie.  He followed me everywhere.  Every time I sat down Tucker would be in my lap.  He even loved scrapbooking with me.  We would tussle and play.  Jim even enjoyed Tucker enough he let him snuggle in the bed with us...I don't think we had a choice.  Needless to say I found my puppy heart. 

The Layout

Things I Learned
  • I've always tried the little squiggly sewing.  I usually make a mess of it.  This time I decided to just try to follow the previous sewing.  It turned out SEW much better.
  • I'm in love with Kraft paper and distress inks and Tattered Angels glimmer mist.
  • Circle and rectangles geometrical together.
  • Tucker's cute!
