It's time for Gilby's Craftster Makeover Doggie Walk!!

Welcome to the Doggie Walk Blog Hop! I'm so glad you came to see my new made over blog - if you hadn't already! If you haven't been here in a while and this is a new look for you, please feel free to look around and check out the other pages (some still in progress) and be sure to turn on your speakers....we have tunes in the new studio too!

My sweet princess Joey is no longer with us, but she's been part of my scrapping and my blog for as long as I've been doing this fabulous hobby, so I think she would enjoy being here for the walk with everyone else's doggies and pets! Joey was such a sweetheart. She loved to pose for the camera {isn't she a diva?} and put up with my shenanigans for the sake of my scrapbooks! LOL She went to doggie heaven in January and we miss her.

Grace was my inspiration to begin scrapbooking archivally. It was about the time of these photos that I first started "gathering" scrapbook supplies. Grace and Joey were buddies from day one. Joey was so gentle with her and Grace was never even the least bit apprehensive of Joey, even putting cookies in her mouth. LOL. Of course, cookies never hurt when making friends. LOL Grace is 10 years old now and has been scrapbooking with me since she was 3 years old.
 


Here are just a few of the diva's poses for her Princess portfolio. 1) Serious. 2) She would wait at the gate like this, peeking under, nearly every day when hubs would get home from work. So silly! But my fave was 3) her, "Look at me, take my picture!" pose with her head tilted to one side like a supermodel. LOL

 

I believe this one is the last photo I ever took of Miss Joey, taken as you can see, at Christmas time. She was such a trooper to wear the blinking lights antlers and pose for Christmas pictures, even though she wasn't happy about it. She was so sweet to wait till I got the shot and even waited for me to take it off for her.

Ok let's get to the important stuff. There will be doggie treats {prizes} so how can you go wrong!  We have some really great doggie treats from some fabulous sponsors -- thank you SO MUCH to ALL our sponsors!!! -- and you're not going to want to miss them. Just to drop a few names you might recognize, how about Cricut, My Creative Time, Peachy Keen, Bugaboo Stamps, Pink by Design and many more!! We'll be walking and hopping through Sunday night, 10:30 eastern time {which will be 7:30 p.m. Scrapendipity time if you aren't sure}. Winners will be randomly chosen and announced Tuesday night. And you will have 16 chances to win merely by walking to each blog, becoming a follower {if you aren't already} and sharing a comment on the awesome makeover projects we have for you. What could be easier!?

Now for my makeover project. I love repurposing and the makeover theme couldn't be any more perfect for my recycled packaging tag. This is my tag in its original form, minus the Bo Bunny jewels that came on it, of course:

Front:                                                            Back:


And the makeover..... I LOVE how this turned out. Won't it be a pretty gift tag on a Christmas package?!

Here are the highlights:

Handmade flower embellishment. LOTS of stuff here. Sorry the glimmer mist doesn't show particularly well in the photo but the leaves and flower petals look amazing in real life.

Bow and "tag-on-tag" embellishment


                       
and the back:

  15. ‎"Until one has loved an animal
    a part of one's soul remains unawakened"~ I think that dogs are the best. I think when you lose a pet all you can think about is all of the love you gave them while they were alive. I work as a foster mom for dogs, I have seen some really badly treated little animals and it always amazes me how they are so willing to trust humans again. Your Dog was so lucky to have you!

    Love your tag! It is so beautiful!
