Don't Let the Weeds Win

Hello ! Today was a bit warmer, right now I'm looking at 13 degrees :) I've got some catching up to do and I've used lots of challenge sketches this month for my layouts so best start getting them blogged. This layout came about from Day13 of LOAD215: The theme is Topic Sentence or Subject. The prompt was:Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! so we were to turn it into: Don't Let (Blank Blank....) so hence my title: Don't Let the Weeds Win.
I used the sketch for Twistback Thursday over at Sketch N Scrap the Twist is to include a pet or animal on the layout. So I found this fun set of pictures of the garden with a cute picture of our dog Buddy :) This is the sketch:

I brought in another photo for the background paper behind the 2 photos.
 The 3 pictures are from this past summer :)
 Here is how I placed the extra photo for like a paper mat. These are various flowers around our back yard. I added a flower pot dimensional sticker from Jolee's boutique Gardening pack. the blue corners came from tea at Elsie's die cut elements (so did the blue flower sticker by the jouraling block). Added some pink sparkles from an Alpha set.
 The lettering for the title came from Recollections Simply Pastel stickers. The papers came from my current counterfeit kit and the journal block came from the SS Home Spun collection.
I just love the colors of this layout, just makes you think of spring :) Have a fantastic day today....
