Facebook Challenge for May by Dianna's Crafts

Hi everyone, Dianna here with a new Tag for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Monthly Challenge.  The first of each month there is a new challenge.   This month's Challenge is an Animal Challenge, anything to do with Animals.

All you have to do is become a member of the Facebook Craft Group and submit your entry.  The winning entry will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

I chose Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs to go with Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts new Dog Shape Set.  I am really excited about this project because this mini album is being donated to JCCARE - Japanese Chin Care and Rescue On-line auction.  

The cover of this mini album is made from a large pizza roll box and the pages were created to fit inside.  The cover art is from Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs and the corners are Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Victorian Corners colored black with a marker.

The pages are 8-1/2 x 11 and are scored at 10-1/2 and 5-1/4; paper is turn 180 degrees and then scored at 5-1/4.  Smaller tab is cut off and between the shallow squares then folded.  

Both the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Chipboard pieces are from the Parisian Shape Set and are colored black with a marker.  A punch was used on the paper to create the side waterfall.  

I used Twinkling H20's on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Dog Shape Set (coming soon) and cut the Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs was cut out and glued to the inside of the collar.  

Twinkling H20's was used on the dog house and bone.  I cut out the little dog in the house and popped it up with a scrap chipboard piece.  

I created small fold outs with scrap paper and put the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts - Good Dog on top.  The frame was colored with chalk inks and only one side was glued down so that a picture could be inserted. 

The fire hydrant  is from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts dog shape set and I used a red Twinkling H20's for color.
