LOAD216 Day 20

Saturday's prompts are Geography.  I think "place" when searching for pictures to go with this prompt and came up with Hubby and Darby in their favorite weekend spot--Napping on the couch.

I used a sketch from Scrap Much blog Sketch-y Friday challenge. The sketch has the big ampersand and it worked perfect for this LO. 

I had just got my Scraptastic sale box in the mail with the December kit.  This paper from Kaitlin Sheaffer seemed to give this design the perfect spot to place the main items on. 


I went through my entire font library on the Silhouette to find the "right" ampersand. I cut it in vellum twice and layered them together. I then sewed them together so give it a bit my visual weight. I used washi tape on the line of the paper to give it more of a base.

 LO 2 is a sketch from Paper Issues February sketch challenge.  

My poor Darby has been feeling so neglected this month because I have been spend so much time in my scraproom. She can't be in my scraproom as she is only 7 months old and likes to eat paper and chew on things still. In the evening she cuddles with me on the couch and has to be touching me, even is is just a paw. Last night it felt like she was holding me there . Poor thing.

The string heart is from Michael's, I only have 1 left in red, I really wish I had bought more than one package now.

Thanks for looking.
