The Face I Love

Here is my entry into the latest Pagemaps Blog contest sponsored by Apron Strings. This layout is about my little dog, Max. He has such a cute face that I love to look at. The dog tag that I journaled his name and date on was actually a gift tag that came on a gift last Christmas. I loved the shape of it and the fact that it had that nice metal edge, so I kept it. I just cut a piece of beige cardstock, hit it with some distress ink to give it the look of an actual dog bone, and adhered it inside the metal rim, which covered the "To" and "From" words preprinted on the gift tag. I adhered it to the bottom of the frame with a jump ring. Since the frame is on pop dots, it allowed the dog tag to actually hang and dangle a little. I love the way this turned out because I love "repurposing" things in my crafts.
