Better Living Through Scrapbooking "Charity" Layout

What a fantastic challenge we have this week at Better Living Through Scrapbooking. I was able to scrap about something that is very near and dear to my heart. I hope that you will join me in this challenge, here is the information you need. 

“The Greatest of These is Charity” challenge
One way to make your life better is through scrapbooking, another way is to do something nice for someone else. Scrap about something you do or have done for someone else. A loved one, a neighbor, a charity, etc.
Choose 2 of the following:
1. Print an element of your page (NOT a photo) using your home or office printer. This can be your title, your journaling, an embellishment, or anything else you can use on your page, but not a photo!
2. Use three brads somewhere on your page.
3. Use a chipboard letter or shape on your page.
4. Use the following quote somewhere on your page or in your journaling: “If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble. . — Bob Hope””

This layout is all about my love for dogs and the work I do for National Mill Dog Rescue. I chose to use items number 2 and 3 from the challenge options on my layout. I used the adorable house button from our sponsor Charlene's Button Box and place it over a house that was printed on the pattern paper. Adding a few dog themed brads makes it a doggie house and takes care of option number 2. White chipboard letters all inked up for my main title takes care of item number 3. I look forward to scrapping more of my NMDR memories. 

Until then, just remember....It's all about the dogs!!

  1. Thank You for what you do. We adopted our Lulu last November. This month it will be a year. I hate that kind of breeders. And, yes I said a strong word: "HATE". This kind of greed is such an atrocity.

  2. I really love this layout Kristina... you blended the theme of the challenge with your charity and papers beautifully! The cute tags with the dogs names on them was such a great touch to the whole project! :-) Oh, and I ADORE the photograph of you with the pups! xoxoxoxox

  3. Great LO Kristina! I love the colors and the subject is awesome!


I have to admit...I LOVE comments!! Thank you so much for stopping by my little piece of the world. Have a great day!
