Hello CE fans, Maggi here to share with you a layout staring one of my sweet poodles dancing with my Dad.  He loved the dogs so much and he could be so silly playing with them.  They loved him too and knew him to be Grandpa.  All I had to say was that Grandpa was coming and they would get all excited and run to the back door to wait for him.
I am loving all the shakers that are in the Creative Embellishments shop.  I used the Dog Shaker for a title.  The shaker spells out the word dog and uses the paw print for the “O”.  I heat embossed the D and G with black embossing powder and heat embossed inside the paw with Stampendous Aged Ivory.  I found it best to assemble the shaker walls and adhere to the paw before heat embossing the bottom of the paw because the edge would not be smooth and therefore I might not get a good seal if I embossed the entire paw before assembling the shaker.  Hope that makes sense.  I also like to assemble my shaker and set it aside so that it can thoroughly dry; otherwise, I find that the shaker pieces adhere to any glue that may have seeped out when assembling the shaker parts.  Tip:  A toothpick works well to spread a thin line of glue on shaker pieces.
This is another chipboard piece from the Family Word set, heat embossed again with aged ivory embossing enamel.
I really adore these paw print chippys.  I left them in their natural state and just colored in the hearts with a Dyan Reavely paint pen.  They are so doggone cute!!
