You Up Yet? {Paper Issues Secret Life of Pets Challenge}

I made another page for Paper Issues Secret Life of Pets challenge. This one is for my friend and pastor as a surprise. I'm in love with her dog!

Here are some details. I used Paper Issues' free cut file called Sunset and Pinkfresh's Be You collection.

The flowers and leaves were all cut from one of the patterned papers. That button is also in the collection.

The white leafy element is cut from a die. Not sure who it's by.

I hope you'll join us in this fun challenge. I spotted a number of pet-related free cut files at the Paper Issues store, and while you're there, take a look at all the awesome new stuff. Use my code, Debbi (no e on the end), and you'll get 20% off your entire order!

Let Me In! {CSI Case File No. 261}

Our mid-month challenge at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration is live! Here's what I made:

And here is the Case File for this challenge that inspired my layout:

I have countless photos of this furry little mischief maker, and this photo was calling to me. These doors go to the library, where I keep not only my books but the cage holding my bearded dragon. Miss Minnie Cupcake wants to get in there so bad. I had locked the door from the inside when I went in to feed the lizard, and when I turned around, she had climbed halfway up the French door and was staring at me. I was so lucky I had my camera to catch that funny shot! I used many of the traditional clues, including the color scheme, a floral print (which I fussy cut), stripes, dots, animals, flowers, hearts, triangles, buttons, a bow, and brads, as well as the topic Testimony.

Here are some details. That fuchsia paper with the wonky dots is really old, by Ki Memories. I think they were ahead of their time. It's funny--I used that We R Memory Keepers paper with the doors on my other September CSI page. I thought it was perfect here (and for the other page too). The flowers were fussy cut from an Amy Tangerine paper, and the "hello" speech bubble was cut from a My Mind's Eye paper. My flair badges are from A Flair for Buttons. I love it when I can find the perfect word stickers, and I found the "world domination strategies" on an old 7Gypsies sticker sheet. It made me laugh with this picture.

I found a little lizard in a Shimelle puffy sticker pack. You gotta love BasicGrey for letter stickers. I have every single pack they ever made, so I can always find the perfect color in my stash. The green letters are old Sassafras Lass stickers.

I couldn't not use this "adorakable" flair badge, also by A Flair for Buttons. That "laugh" sticker is ANCIENT--by Ki memories, and I found a little bow-shaped enamel dot in just the right color to match that clue.

I hope you'll come play with us. We've got a dozen sponsors donating prizes this month--everything from prize packs to kits to gift certificates:
