bff - a boy and his dog


Another day another sketch! Here's a layout I did of my son and his (was my husband's dog) Flash. The two of them are the best of buddies!!!!! I am so happy to be scrapping again! It really does bring me so much joy!

The green background is distressed and inked and I hand cut the bottom. I punched out an oval for behind the title to make it stand out a bit more. The BFF letters are Scenic Route chipboard letters - I am still in mourning over the loss of my beloved Scenic Route! One of my all time fave companies! I guess I will just have to out and get some October Afternoon, Jillibean Soup and Crate paper to get over it! ;) The patterned paper on this is actually a Stampin Up Christmas line! I know right! The ribbon is Maya Road. I also used SU leafy branch die cut to create the branches coming out. 

I thought I was finished but in looking at it decided it needed something more. It was very *flat*. So I decided to make a paper flower. So I punched 4 graduated circles from the same patterned paper, distressed the edges, then sprayed them with Glimmer Mist. I left them dry enough to work with then pierced using a paper piercer in the middle to place a brad in the center then began crumpling and shaping my flower. When completely dry it will hold it's shape.

Who is the Krafty Mama?


Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
