What a wild week we had last week. Sunday was Jada's "egg day" when she gets an egg for breakfast. She absolutely loves those days. Then, Jada had to go to the groomer's on Monday. Tuesday, I had to go to the doctor to get my Cherry Angioma removed. But Wednesday was the hardest of all. Wednesday was the day that I took Jada to the vet to be spayed. She had to stay overnight and I picked her up on Thursday. I was completely unaware of how hard it would be on her. She wouldn't even walk three steps. So I stayed home with her on Friday. The rest of the weekend followed suit. This week was definitely one for the books so I scrapbooked it!
I used Basic Grey's Hopscotch- 4 square as the background because it was white with some cool distressing on it. I then cut all my pictures and arranged them in a lose grid. I filled in all the gaps with My Mind's Eye - Fine and Dandy papers. I inked all the edges with Ranger's Distress Ink in Pumice Stone. The title is using The Paper Studio's Chipboard Bundle. I adore that stuff! I've used the bundle on so many projects. I need to find some more before we run out.
My little kite came out better than I planned. I used baker's twine as my kite's string and secured it using Glossy Accents. I also decided to wrap my journaling around my grid instead of inside it. The papers were just so pretty that I didn't want to cover them up with big strips of paper. But if I tried to write directly onto the patterned paper, it would disappear.
After I was finished, I stepped back and examined it. The bottom square needed something. So I went back out and took a look at my scraps. On the back of one of the pages was some beautiful banners. So I cut two out. I placed the brown banner on the bottom and layered the yellow on top. I used baker's twine again and pop dots to make this layer appear farther out.
Jada is still not herself yet. But little-by-little, she's getting better. I think this week was a bit more of 'Jada's week' than 'Our Week'. It's been very hard on her. I'm glad I documented this week. I've always wanted to do it, but I just never found the time. This was just so important this week, that I did it without even debating. I hope you liked it!
