Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #110

Hello and Happy August! It is back to school month and this momma isn't exactly shedding tears about that! It has been a wonderful summer, but the kids are ready to go back to school and so am I. Today I have another sketch for you that I designed for Sketch-N-Scrap. Upload your take on this sketch to the SNS blog and while you're there check out what the design team came up with.
For my layout I used a couple pictures of Brileigh with various critters she has tried to bring into the house and love forever. Living in the country she has ample animals to choose from!
I created the polka dot background by stamping the black card stock with Versa Mark and embossing it in glitter. The pink paper for the title piece, center outline and butterflies was made with white cardstock and a couple different Distress Inks. That way I could match the color to my other papers.
Here is a little guy we got to meet today. Our dog likes to catch bunnies and bring them to us. This guy is old enough he should survive. Once I locked Molly up, Mister Bunny and I took a walk deep into fields and he happily hopped away.
Items I used in this layout:
My  Little Shoebox • Pretty Little Things • Lovely Ladies
My Little Shoebox • Playtime • Hide & Seek
Card Stock • Black & White
Ranger • Distress Ink • Fired Brick & Picked Raspberry
My Stash • Dot Texture Stamp
Versa Mark Watermark Stamp Pad
Whispers • Glitter • Embossing Powder
