A 12 X 12 and a fur baby

Hello Friends, Just a quick post to share a 12 X 12 layout that I have been working on. I haven't been too productive with my card creating lately. I have however been able to create the adorable scrapbook page that I am about to share with you now. This lay out was actually from a kit that I received as a swap. I am really challenged when it comes to colors and coordinating them for pages and cards too but with a kit, it is soooo much easier. Love it Love it Love it! So, the kit is English Rose from Kaisercraft. I added some bling myself and also used a Bazill swirl template to add the pink bling.  The flowers that I added to the corner of one of the photo mats was white but I made them pink with my Tattered Angels Glimmer mist " Pink Cadillac"    I think I am going to use these for my wedding photos. 
So, I hope you all enjoy this fun layout and will join me again soon to see what is going on in my little creative world. 
As of June 14th. I will be off of work for summer break until late August so it is my goal that I will not only be posting more frequently but also will be doing some fun give aways and challenges here on Dannie's Creative Outlet.  
Our new fur baby

Oh, and before I forget, I also wanted to share with all of you my family's new addition(no, I didn't have a baby) but we did get a new fur baby and he is the coolest pup I have ever met. I have had dogs in my life but this one is different. He is so smart and cute and cuddly(is that how you spell it? ) LOL!

Hello Friends, How is every one's weekend going? Mine, so far has been wonderful. I started out by going to garage sales and went to one that was strictly crafting(rubber stamps and supplies) goodies. This garage sale is a yearly thing and it is also a great opportunity to sell those crafting items that I no longer need or have duplicates of and so on. There was so many crafting goodies I had to make 3 trips thru to make sure I didn't miss a thing. 
After that it was time to come home and do some much needed laundry & house work. So with all of that caught up, time to hit the craft room and work on some swaps. Well, I completed 1/2 of a swap that I am in on Splitcoaststampers. This is for ATC's. I love ATC's. They are the funnest little pieces of art. This part of the swap is for Embossed ATC's. The dress form is embossed in a burgundy embossing powder. The stamp set I used it called Established Elegance from Stampin Up! 
This is for a set of 8+1(the +1 is for the hostess) and the next set I will be working on will be using designer papers. As soon as I complete them, I will be sharing!! All for now as I have to get started on my little pieces of art!!
