Exploring Cricut - I Love My Pet!

It's challenge time at Exploring Cricut! The challenge is to create a card, layout or project about a pet you love. We have definitely had our share of a variety of pets from 4 legged to webbed feet (we currently have 2 dwarf frogs). This challenge comes at a great time for me because we will be getting a new puppy on March 19th and now I will have at least 1 layout done:)

We are getting a Sealyham Terrier and am so excited because the research I have done on these cuties is perfect for our family.


For the dog house, there is a spot to add a name in the white part above the door. Once we have picked the name I will add that to the plaque and then add a journaling block above the word cute.


I took the terrier from CAC and folded the ears down and rounded the tail to resemble more of what the dog will look like. I only cut 2 of the layers for the dog.


So, originally I was going to have the title say "what a ham" because they are supposed to like to clown around and also that is part of their name. However, I decided to add cute and the "sealy" part in a lighter color so that the "cute" and "ham" still stood out.

I think this paper is really fun for pets. I like the way it came out and hope you are inspired to create:)

How exciting Annette. I remember when my daughter gave me my little Maltese 12 years ago. She has been such a wonderful addition to our family.

Cute LO. Love the paw print pager and what a darling little puppy.

Have a great day.
