King of his Castle- SOUS


I'm so glad its Friday and that means its another REVEAL at Stuck On U Sketches..
I adore this weeks sketch and couldn't wait to sink my teeth into it..  :O)
This is my DD's doggy "Tudor"..He was about 8 months old in this photo that I took at Christmas last year.. We have our kitchen gated off from the pets so he jumped up against it hoping for a little Christmas dinner..LOL 
He is such a cutey and is a very sweet, lovable pooch!!  when he's not destroying anything...LOL

Here is the sketch that I used to create this layout:
As you all know, I am not much for journaling, so I added another photo instead..
Only cause I really couldn't choose between the two, they were both so cute..

Oh! and we were supposed to use BLING for this challenge..
I added some gems onto the title and on the crown..
and I do have to give a big shout out to Generations Crafting who is one of our sponsors at SOUS, the girls (Sandy W, Leah, Sandi C and I) are all on her new DESIGN TEAM..
The girls and I are so excited!!! 
I hope you ladies get a minute or two to check us out there as well.. *I can't wait to get started

Here I have some close ups:

I love the little dog on the Doodlecharms cartridge..
It was so perfect for this layout

A close up of the title.. Which fits him like a glove.

close up of the bottom photo and the title

The dog house with the little gray cat hiding behind it..
My dd has two gray cats as well,
so thats why I added them onto the layout.. 
They normally don't hide from the dog, they all get along great.

"Cats rule, Dogs drool!"..LOL
