A photo wallet of my little staffie Bess

I'm hoping to make some blank Christmas photo wallets for the craft market at Barnsley on the 16th September. As I haven't made one before I thought I'd have a trial run by making one to show my little puppy dog Bess.

It was a great way to use up some colours that are sometimes a little bright for cardmaking. They suit her personality and pick up the bright green of Dad's lawn and the turquoise of the toy she destroyed LOL (see photos further down).

Stamp sets: Frames with a Flourish, Garden Whimsy, Fresh Cuts, One of a Kind
Textured Cardstock: Green Galore, Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise
Plain Cardstock: Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
DSP: Rainbow Sherbet
Ink: Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise
Punches: Scallop Circle, Scallop Edge, 1-3/8" Circle, Corner Rounder

The design is from Splitcoaststampers here. I've added my photos of Bess and now just need to add a little journaling to complete the Wallet.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out and it's so less daunting than a full scrapbook so hope to make a few more of these.

Thanks for stopping by.
