A 'scraplift' for my wedding album

Here's another sketch site that I visit from time to time when I'm looking for inspiration. I really like the way the black, white and red work together. Now I'm thinking it could have been cool to do the whole album in black, white and red, but I think I'm too far in to change that now!

cardstock- red (Creative Memories), black and white (me & my big ideas)
brads- silver (the paper studio), red flower (chatter box)
ribbon- a scrap
letters- rub-ons (american crafts "eddie" font)

Woof! It's a book about Mia.

Mia is our 7 month old Morkie (Maltese & Yorkie mix) and we've had her since March. I decided to take a class at The Scrapbook Barn one Sunday afternoon and I thought this was fitting. I've looked at these chipboard word books before but I wasn't really sure how to put them together so I was really looking forward to the class. We used Love, Elsie supplies and I think it has a really fun feel to the book. It was also easier to put together than I had imagined and I think I might do another one of these someday. I think it's my first "complete" scrapbook to date! :).

Love, Elsie dog ribbon set
Love, Elsie dog chipboard buttons set
Love, Elsie patterned paper- "Daisy Blankie" and " Daisy Puppy Love"
Pink Stickles
Cardstock (very likely Bazzill)- Orange, Pink and Yellow

- Prima Flower from Michael's (it's actually upside-down), brad by Paper Source from Hobby Lobby
