{PIN}spirational Challenge # 41

Hello Blogging Friends,

This is the second post of three I have for today, so please be sure to check them all out.

We have the cutest picture for you today at {PIN}spirational Challenges.  Look at this little cutie!

Our sponsors this week are Cardmadfairy's Card Creations and Kitty Bee Designs.  They generously provided us images and sentiments to create with this week.

When I saw this picture, I had a few ideas in mind. First, I thought how would I create a card?  Then I thought a tag would be cute as I had the sentiment and I could use some of my Stampers Anonymous images with my distress inks.  What my final creation ended up being was completely different than what I originally thought.  When I sat down and relooked at the Cardmadfairy's sentiment "Love Always & Forever" and the inspiration picture,  I thought I should grab a picture of one of my dogs.  Then I remember my favorite picture of Stella, my basset hound.  The picture of the scrapbook page below is not blurry.  The actual picture of Stella is blurry.  It shows her personality perfectly.  She is always nosey, into everything and ready to give unexpected kisses.  Hence why her nose is huge and the rest of her body is small in this picture.  Her nose was practically on my camera lens.

So I have no copics for you in this post, not one.  I went to my second hobby, scrapbooking.  I used MME, Reflections and Pink Paisley paper which is all distressed and on a black background.  The sentiment was printed on cryogen paper and cut out with Spellbinders labels 18 die.  I used Tim Holtz peeled paint distress ink around the sentiment.  I finished the page off with twine, buttons and a charm.  So there you have it!  I will Love Always and Forever Stella.

So take another look at the inspiration picture and head on over to {PIN}spirational Challenges to show us how you have been inspired.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
