Dog Days

The challenge at Ribbon Carousel was a summer theme. The challenge at Heart2Heart was Dog Days of Summer. The challenge at Frosted Designs was to scrapbook your summer photos.... I'm sensing a summer theme here. I've been wanting to make a companion layout to this layout we made at Convention:
I found the color challenge over at Color Throwdown to be perfect (even though I'm late... ooops):

So I made this layout based on the sketch at Frosted Designs, and I included a dog, per the requirements at Heart2Heart:

The pictures are of my oldest daughter at the 4th of July picnic. She went on the "safari" ride at least 4 times! I used the Ruby to bring out the red in her shirt; to be able to pick her out of the crowd.

Materials used:
Paper: White Daisy, Slate, Champagne, and Ruby cardstock
Stamps: Baroque Borders, Trinity Alphabet, A Bowwow, Love Blooms, and Summer Days (retired)
Inks: Slate, Sunset
Dimensional Elements: Houndstooth Alphabet
Embellishments: Slate Mini Medley Accents, Sparkles - Black and Grey Assortment, Slate Polka-Dot Satin Ribbon, White Embroidery Floss
Other: Doilies (not CTMH)

Here is how I am putting the layout together:
