What is the fascination with cardboard boxes, especially with children or in this case big hairy dogs?

I thought this photo would suit the layout for the newest challenge over at Scrapology.........

"E for Exposed" and using a layout by Ingvild  Bolme as a starting point.

All the patterned paper, including the eyeboggling black and white paper comes from the Happy Days collection kit from Echo park.

Rather than tearing the aperture for the photo, as in the original layout (see below) I just randomly cut into the paper and folded the pieces back.

Pop over to the Scrapolgy blog to see the details of the challenge, all the amazing design Team layouts and details of how to enter your project. As always we have a super prize for the winning layout.

This is the original layout  by Ingvild Bolme and our sketch....

Thanks for stopping by

    My cats are the same, always in boxes - empty or not!

  6. Super layout Karen. I really like the black and red colour combo with the blue hints. That photo is so cute too.
