I knew that this Blog Hop Layout would be of my Grand Daughter Eloise
and her dogs (Well technically they are her Mum's) BUT she LOVES them so much <3
They are Dalmatians and they a half siblings.  Kenzo was Kirrily's first puppy
then Sienna his half sister was born and Kirrily couldn't resist her liver spot colour.
These pair of dogs have the most wonderful nature.  AND they are so good with Eloise.

So let's get onto to how I created this layout... Just basically a layout with lots of photos.
The products that I used to create it were
Basic White 12" x 12" Cardstock -
Real Red Cardstock - #106578
Basic White Cardstock - #159228
Just Kiddin' DSP - #162828
Mini Alphabet Dies - #162934
Bee Builder Punch - #162553
By My Side Cling Stamp Set - #159006
Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers Embellishment - #162557
Stampin' Dimensionals  - #104430
Multipurpose Glue - #110755
Most Adored 12" x 12" DSP from Sale- A- Bration (FREE with a $90 purchase) - #162975

For this layout I dreamt that I had to use the cute Little characters from Just Kiddin' DSP.
It is so nice to be able to put so many photos on a page layout BUT yet it not
feel too much for the page. I kept the simplicity of DSP and Title, no techniques.

I fussy cut all the little characters from this DSP as I only brought the paper.
So many variations of what children do in their everyday lives.
You really need to go check it out...Pg 49 of the Jan-Apr Mini Catalogue.


And of course I used Most Adored 12" x 12" Specialty Designer Series (Heart papers)
from the Sale-A- Bration products that you can earn for FREE simply by spending $90.

I firstly cut the Most Adored Gold Heart DSP 12" x 3 3/4" adhered that with tear n tape
along the bottom of the page layout.
Next I cut the Real Red Heart DSP to 2 x  6" x 4" photo mats.
Added Basic White photo mats on top of the Real Red Hearts DSP
I printed the photos BUT they were not the typical sizes that I normally print.
They were printed from some app that Kirrily uploads all the photos into.
So I had to cut all the photos down.

Then I just matted them all with Real Red Cardstock, Bubble Bath Heart DSP OR
Bubble Bath and Real Red Stripe DSP and matted them together on the layout.
I punched out several different heart with the Bee Builder Punch and scattered them
all around the photos and the Titles.

I only used 1 stamp on this entire layout and that was from By My Side Cling Stamp.
I stamped "Nice to have you by my side" in Real Red Ink.
And I added a small pink heart from the Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers Embellishments.

My husband helped me out with all the die-cutting of the letters for the Titles.
He just die-cut all the letters from Mini Alphabet Dies out of Real Red Cardstock.

 I just LOVE how the completed page layout has come together,
it is AMAZING that I had a dream about this layout, telling me to use the
Just Kiddin' DSP.
