a dog's life mini book

I decided to end the month of June with a bang! Here is my dog mini album! Been awhile since I made one... I made this special little mini book for the Scrappin' With Friends store. It is my first design team project so I hope they like it. (I included most pages but not all of them)
All the letters were cut out with my cuttlebug Olivia font. I stiched around some photos and on some ribbon so I hope it is ok because all the products were sposta come from the store.
Some of the pages are smaller. I think it is more exciting that way.
Rocky is a very comical, weird and amusing dog. I tried to capture that in the photos and journaling.
I used this picture on a recent layout. I like it because it is a view you dont normally think to look at.
This journaling is talking about things Rocky herars alot. Some are bad and some are good things but all are pretty funny.
I used adhesive on the back and wrinkled up the ribbon. I then stiched over it to give it the ruffle effect.
I stiched over the cuttlebug letters to add intrest. The title contrasts with the journaling in a poetic sense.
See the shorter pages? Pretty cool I think.
