National Dog Day with Helmar

Happy Friday to you all and Happy National Dog Day.  Today I am posting for Helmar, and also celebrating National Dog Day.  In doing so I want to do a project memorializing our golden retriever of 11 years..Shelby (fondly called Shelbyroo) who passed away June 7th of Cancer.
What I decided to do was redo an 8by8 shadowbox picture frame, which previously had Christmas decor inside.

I started by ripping off the old decor and paper.
The next thing I did was get one of her older license tags and repainted it to match my project colors, and set it aside to dry.

Next I found the picture of Shelby I was going to use and matted it with a cut I got from my Cricut machine. I used Helmar Acid Free Glue so as not to ruin the photo.
next I finished matting
I used the Helmar Super Tack Glue to add the cardstock to the chipboard frame.

I created a banner for the background and used the Helmar Permanent adhesive runner.

I made some 3 dimensional paper daisies. I cut them with my Cricut machine, spritzed with water and molded with the different sized styluses.  I joined 3 in layers and added a button for the centers. For adhesive for the flowers and the dog dish image I used Helmars'  450 Quick dry adhesive.

I made a couple bows with silver ribbon, added some fancy buttons on top and glued on outside of frame with 450 Quick Dry adhesive...

Finally assenbled all the pieces and took the finish frame outside by what used to be her yard and took a picture.

Sure do miss her. she was a wonderful do and member of the family.

have a great day....Cathy
