In Memory of Bagel

My daughter's dog, Bagel had to be put to sleep about a month ago.  He was a great dane and a wonderful dog and is really missed.  I wanted to make this journal cover/mini album for my daughter and thought the challenge at Tiddly Inks, which is to make a journal page/project would be great for it.

What i did:
I used the image from Tiddly Inks and colored it in.  I did cut off the yorkie type dog on the right hand side because this journal is about my daughter's dog, Bagel.  I tried to color in the large dog to look like Bagel and the girl to look like my daughter.  I cut out the image.  I also cut out the scalloped circle and circle using Elegant edges and Plantin Schoolbook.  I hand sewed green baker's twine around the inside circle.  Then i wove green tulle in and out of the scalloped edges and tied a bow.  I sewed the image to the background paper by using my machine and then i zig zagged around the image and the scalloped edges.  I made my own cover by cutting some cardboard and adhering this cover to it and then  lined the back of the cover as well and made a back cover in the same fashion.  I cut out watercolor paper for the pages.  I also tied tulle and ribbon around the ring/binders at the top.  I made this journal so it could stand up.

He was a good dog.  He loved going for walks.
