Fur - Babies Friday

Today I am a guest designer for The Scrapbooking Queen's Fur Baby, Princess Penelope and it is Fur - Babies Friday.  I created this two page 12x12 layout using A Child's Year cartridge.
I recently made this layout to scrapbook some pictures of my kids playing with our friend's dog, Olive. Olive is the neighborhood dog that my kids have played with for years.  They love throwing the ball to Olive for her to fetch.
The title was cut at 3.5 inches and I cut it out twice in different colors.  I offset the layers in order to create a shadow effect.  The two dogs are cut at 4.0 inches and in order to create a shadow I cut the bottom layer at 4.20 inches and again offset the layers.
The boy playing with the dog was cut at 6.0 inches. This cut had its own shadow so there was no need to try to create my own.
The bones were cut at 2.0 inches and inked on the edges.  I also used a white gel pen to add some extra details to the layout.
I still need to print my pictures to add to this layout so I don't have a picture of Olive and the kids playing to share with you.
Thank you Princess Penelope and The Scrapbooking Queen for having me as a guest designer.
