Scrapbook Page: Murphy


I made this 12 x 12 scrapbook page for this month's Scrapbook Challenge on  Our Daily Bread designs, Let Your Light Shine!  The challenge is a recipe.  The challenge is to use one striped designer paper, one Scripture and one embellishment.  (More is ok, but you must use at least one).

Back in the fall, ODBD owner, Kelley Holland and her hubby Rick gave a puppy to their daughter Summer.  They became the proud "grandparents" of Murphy!  Kelley has been sharing photos with us bread sticks as he has grown by leaps and bounds. She has fallen head over heels in love with this guy!!!  So anyway,  I decided to make my scrapbook page as a surprise for her.... this cute little guy playing in the leaves was great inspiration.


Here are the supplies I used:
Our Daily Bread designs stamp sets" Friendship, Let Us Begin, Sing to the Lord and Randi's Song
Card Stock: Bazzill and scraps from scrap box
Designer Paper:  BasicGrey Max & Whiskers, Karen Foster (Dog Bone Times clip)
Tools: Spellbinders Frame, Cuttlebug EF, MS and EK Success Punches
Embellishments: Metal Letters- Making Memories, Ribbon and Slide- from my stash
Coloring Medium: Copics, Alcohol Inks for the leaves
Ink: Memento, Stazon


We'd love to have you play along~  Here are the guidelines!

Grace this page is amazing! And, judging by the paws on Murphy...he won't be a "little" puppy for long!

I can not believe all of the details and stamps you used on this fabulous page. The layering and different details...like the metal letters, the "belt clip" on the string of words, the leaves, and so many other things...keeps my eyes looking around! It is a beautiful page. Kelley is lucky to have a friend in you!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

What a GREAT page! I need to make one for my furbabies too...they are getting so old!

Hey Grace, my friend and I started a challenge blog to encourage people to use their stash of supplies. It is not product driven...just an encouraging place for people to use their stuff! Would love to have you play. Challenges are 2x a month...
