Layout (first) of Bailey

Hello again. As mentioned in my previous post, I was approached by Theresa, theScrapbooking Queen, to be a guest designer on her blog. Well, actually it’s not really HER blog, it’s her li’l Yorkie, Penelope’s blog. (I just know Bailey would love to play w/ her.)

Anyway, Penelope’s blog is called “Princess Penelope” (see her blog button on right sidebar) and she has guest designers on every Friday. Here is my contribution:-

Just to let you know, this is my very first LO that I have ever done. And it only seemed apropos to make it of my sweet li’l Bailey.

For those of you who don’t already know, Bailey is a li’l rescue, sent to me from heaven by my dear, sweet Sasha, whom I lost 2 yrs. ago. I was in a really bad way when I lost my Sasha, so Bailey basically rescued me, instead of the other way ‘round.

When we first got Bailey, he took a shine to one of Sasha’s toys:- a li’l chick. Here he is cuddling the li’l chick. Isn’t that the cutest thing ever?? Hence, that's what I centered my LO around.

Bailey is telling the li’l chick:- “I paws-itively LOVE you”! And the li’l chick is returning the love by wearing a “Puppy Love” collar.

Glue – regular; ATG; Zig Two Way
Cardstock – white (for the Imagine)

Cricut Cartridges

Beyond Birthdays – I Love You
Create a Critter - chick
Four-Legged Friends – doggie

I used components from the “Paws-itively the best things” frame from the “Imagine More” cart. The other designs were from the Cricut carts., listed above.

Bailey’s name in paw prints is created with the “JLR Pawrty Hearty” font.

Also, I am giving away some blog candy. You don’t need to be a follower of my blog to win but I would love it, if you were. It’s a “Flower Alphabet” clear stamp set by Mary Engelbriet. Her famous “flower motif” is on each letter. Here’s a pic of it:-

This give-away will end on Friday, Sept. 2nd. at 9:00 P.M., PST. So be sure to enter on this post for your chance to win. Please ensure you include some way for me to get hold of you, should you win. Good luck! And thanks for joining me on my first LO and first guest appearance on a blog. Don’t forget to visit both Princess Penelope’s blog and her momma, Theresa’s blog.


  1. What a sweet story! The layout is adorable!
    Congrats on being a guest designer.

    (Please don't consider me in the giveaway--I don't use stamps very often and would rather see them go to someone who needs them. But it's very kind of you to offer the blog candy!)

  2. That is so sweet. Bailey is adorable. Glad to hear you found each other. Great layout!

  5. Well Linda... You look like an old pro! This is gorgeous! I love the little dog cut. Now I want that cartridge and could have got it today on clearance at WM. I bet I will go by tomorrow and they will be sold out. Hee! Hee! That's how it always happens. Hee! Hee! Congrats on the guest design spot and I can't wait to see your next one! Most Sincerely, Bobby & Jill

  6. Hiya, Linda!!! Thought I'd drop in to say "hi" but never expected to see you'd made a layout -- and it's GREAT!!! What a grand page for that sweet lil Bailey!!! I guess if you need an incentive, he'd be it!!! LOL!

    Linda, the little "Bailey" image, fire hydrant, and the bone are just too adorable!!!

    Well, you beat me doing a layout -- one of these days...!!! LOL!

    Hugs, my friend!

  7. Congratulations on your first layout. I love the story of you and Bailey. K7181994@aol.com
