Rocky the dog

Rocky the dog is a lovable image from Stamping Dragon Designs. Rocky was printed twice on different paper and paper pieced. What makes me especially happy about Rocky is the "designer" paper on which he is mounted. Noticed the similarity? After watching a video on creating a pattern in Photoshop Elements by Squigglefly's champion, Holly Young (thank you Holly), of Hog Wild About Stamping, I decided that since Rocky is such a good boy, he never barks, he's house-trained, and very obedient, he deserved his own personalized designer paper. The Photoshop Elements' gods were with me that day and after several attempts voilĂ  (now I can say he came with papers)!

Don't forget you have until March 3 at 7:00 p.m., EST, to enter the birthday challenge at Stamping Dragon Designs.
