Ten Reasons Dogs are Better than Boyfriends

I've worked on this particular layout on and off all last week... It started with a different title and I made errors on it three times (I won't go into all the boring details)... finally I just trashed the whole idea and then came up with this.  I can't take credit for the "reasons" listed as I found ideas around the internet and used those plus came up with a couple of my own.  I'm just glad the dang thing is done now and I can move on to a new project (WHEW!)

The ten reasons are:  Dogs never make you cry.  Dogs mean it when they kiss you. Dogs are always happy to see you. Dogs will never be unfaithful to you. Dogs never think you own too many shoes. A teen-aged dog is considered very mature. Dogs don' t think they are smarter than you. Dogs don't care whether you shave your legs. Dogs feel guilt when they have done something wrong. Dogs do not have problems expressing affection in public.

The Tim Holtz inspired grunge roses that my grandson helped me with earlier this week did make this page (although orginally I made five in the paper shown, but one of my cats ran off with one and chewed it up... and you know you can't use just I had to use three)... grrrr. LOL.

Supplies Used:

Patterned Paper: The Girls Paperie, Paisley (for layout) Cabbage Rose (handmade grunge flowers)
Cardstock: Vintage Cream, Sweet Blush and Spring Rain (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Distress Ink in Antique Linen (Tim Holtz)
Cricut Cartridge: Storybook and Sweet Treats
Fibers: Hibiscus Burst Ribbon (Papertrey Ink)
Other: Glossy Accents, Scallop Die Cut (Papertrey Ink), Glittter Brads (Dear Lizzy & American Crafts), Rhinestones (Ellen Hutson),Glimmer Mist in S.W.A.K (Tattered Angels), Sparklers (Webster's Pages), Paper Crinkler (Fiscars) Royal Butterfly punch (Martha Stewart) Pearls (Hero Arts), Spellbinders Shapeablilities, Corner Chomper, Border Punch (Fiscars), Handmade "Grunge" Roses.

That is a gor-guss layout. Love it.

PS You can use four flowers, just leave a space where #2 or #4 would be in your row of 5. I can't remember who told me that, but it does work.
