I had a couple ideas for the photo that I wanted to use. Going through my paper tonight, though, I found some beautiful paper I purchased a couple years ago - too bad that I don't live near the store I purchased it at :( Anyways, I found this great dog paper that I had totally forgotten about. The paper sparked the creation of this layout. Since I'm in the mode of 'use my stash' based on May's class, I pulled several different elements together for this layout - the ribbon, paw prints, flower, and alphabet stickers are all part of my effort to use up some supplies.
I then had fun with my sewing machine on this one.
