Aussie Scrap Jacked

After hearing about it on Scrap Therapy, I decided to check out Aussie Scrap Jacked and was happy to see so many of my online mates from ST as DT members over there and then saw all the wonderful work they've created as inspiration for this month's challenge and I couldn't resist jumping on the bandwagon. This month, I chose to "lift" Mandy's layout. Now, Miss Mandy and I go way back... she is responsible for pushing me and encouraging me to try shabby chic (which is now my preferred style of scrapping) and also for giving us the idea to have Ben meet me halfway down the aisle at our wedding (thus solving the dilemma of not having anyone to walk me down). It is fitting, then, that the very first layout I have lifted from Scrap Jacked is that of Miss Mandy!

I was inspired by her use of red & green (two colours that i have trouble scrapping with... together and separately!) and shabby chic style. I also used several photos on my layout (which I usually avoid doing) just like she did. Here is Mandy's Layout and here is my lift...
I used Basic Grey & October Afternoon Papers, Prima journaling sticker & flowers. Cannot remember what brand the flower-lace is but I bought it from Scrap Therapy. I also used A.C thickers. This layout, of course, is of our darling puppy Cruiser and his total disgust at having to wear a Santa hat for photos of him celebrating his first Christmas.
