Best Fur Friends Word Book


This is another project for my Pazzles Design Team 2008 that I am now able to post. The theme for this project was Best Friend. Well the paper they sent me was called "Wanted"....and my best friend was my Best Fur Friend. This Word Book was really a labor of love dedicated to my poodle; Samantha. Everything was designed by me for this Word Book. The Font I used had a western flair to it. I used the Fat Pen tool holder for the American Crafts Galaxy Marker to outline the letters before cutting out the pieces of the Word Book. I spiral bound it with my Rubicoil and lots of ribbons. All the letters were cut out and pieced to form die cuts.

As you can tell my poodle was spoiled rotton. Some of the pictures I used were images of how she would let me put props on her (Ok Ok doggie clothes) for pictures. One year she had a belly dancing costume on just like the one I made myself. Those were the good old days when I had a killer figure.....Oh no not any more...Yeah I'm 52 and do not have abs of steele anymore...more like buns of jello...blame it on the computer!
This dog used to ride my Waverunner with me..she had her own life jacket too...attached to my life jacket. Loved to swim in the water just like a retriever.....Even pools. Yes I am one of those crazy dog owners that love their dogs so much they rule their life..yup thats me.










We were supposed to create a matching project, so I created a matching box holder for the Word Book with a Belly Band. The diecut Fleur de Lis was copied from the paper to match.
