Project number two for my June Scrapmatts DT projects is a single page layout of my parent-in-laws' puppy, Josh. He is very cute (aren't all puppies?) but he is also going through all the typical puppy stages of chewing/biting everything, too much energy and problems with toilet training. I will use this entry as my Pets theme submission for the Gold Coast Show this year.
The picket fence is such a cute design but I had never found a use for it on any of my layouts previously. The title comes from an assorted set which seems to be more targeted towards little boys but I thought it suited Josh perfectly. You can see in the close up I left the fence raw to tie in with the natural feel I was going for. The title is painted with acrylic paint and then covered with crackle medium. The Scrap Word in the corner just has stamping ink whipped over the top to let the recessed black words still show through.

I was inspired by the Once Upon A... Sketch June challenge for this layout. The journaling prompt for this month is 'The best things in life aren't things'. I've left my journaling visible on this layout, talking about how Josh's cuteness outweighs his mischief at the moment.
