Help Build The ROC

"Brick by brick… dog by dog… we are laying the foundation to end animal-testing. Literally and metaphorically Beagle Freedom Project is building a safe space to help the countless dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs and other animals that have suffered unspeakable violence in research laboratories."

For $100, you can have a "brick" to help build Beagle Freedom Project's Rescue & Outreach Center.
It will be located in Los Angeles, CA and your name will appear on a brick used to create it.

The center will include an office and education building, senior housing, meet and greet exercise area, and other facilities to help support former laboratory animals that will start their new lives with compassion and love.

Learn more about this campaign and The Beagle Freedom Project here.

Throwback Thursday: May 2, 2011

SOLD! To the woman who enjoys friends & drinks with friends on May 2, 2011.
"I really like this," she wrote. Well, that is exactly what I wanted to see.

Sadly, there isn't another, but you can MAKE YOUR OWN!

{ Scrapbook Canvas Art }

You can create this in any theme, style or color that you prefer.
That's what makes it so fun & easy - Your imagination is the limit!

Supplies needed:

Canvas (4"x4" shown.)
Tape or glue
Scrapbook papers
Buttons, die cuts
Stamp, ink

1. Wrap scrapbook paper around the canvas like you would a present, so that the folds are on the sides and back.

2. Wrap & glue ribbon around the sides to cover up any folds from the paper.

3. Stamp image onto a piece of scrapbook paper, then cut it to be smaller than the size of the canvas.

4. Add embellishments to the corners.

Tip: If using a small canvas, pick up a mini easel, so you can display it.

These can be relatively inexpensive, so they would make great gifts, such as bridesmaids, birthdays, or Christmas.

They will be a special way to share your creativity with others.

If you need ideas, checkout scrapbook layouts or page maps.

Have you made or received a piece of canvas art? Old or new, share it in the comments!
And if you decide to make one now, share that, too. I always enjoy viewing others' projects.
