I stamped chalk ink on some glossy cardstock to create my background. The little boy and his dog is a stamp from Stampsmith. As it appears the boy is wearing a nautical outfit I tried to carry that look through the arch with my stamped stars (Rhonna Farrer) in the background as well as the twine along the side of my arch. I'll bet anything that dog is named Skip:)
And now for the smile -- here's a picture I took of my son last summer when he brought his Doberman puppy home. The look of adoration on that dog's face is so telling. I like to call this picture "A Good Watchdog Never Sleeps."
