BBTB2 Host This Week

Hi all!  As the host of the Bitten By the Bug2 challenge this week, I chose the cute dachshund cut from the Paisley cartridge. I thought I would create a scrapbook page using photos of my sweet little doxie, Spooky.  My Spooky boy is such a cuddler.  I took the photos when I got my new smartphone a few months ago.  I really liked the soft lighting all around him.  As a miniature doxie, he is like a perpetual puppy to us.  I cut out the dachshunds from a tan cardstock with a black top layer.  Afterall, my doxie is black and tan!  I tied some twine around each of their necks.  I embossed an aqua paper to back the photo on the right, with strips of crinkled bone paper behind it.  Each of the pics has a file folder label attached to the top, and dog phrases attached to the bottom. He's such a good puppy!  Go check out the other designers creations at BBTB2, as always they are amazing!



Miles of Smiles,

Oh, I love this Melissa!! I love the splashes of yellow and your dogs are just so cute. I like that you did them in traditional colors. I couldn't get past the hot pink example in the book. ;)
