Puppy love.

One of the really great things about being on a design team is that you have to scrap.  When you don't feel like it.  When you feel like you don't have time.  When you don't think you have a story to tell. And sometimes when you get finished you think "I'm glad I did that."  

This picture is 7 or 8 years old.  Reba, the dog, had just been adopted by my kids and every time I got down on the floor to play with her she'd go after my hair.  I am a sucker for puppies and I couldn't bring myself to make her stop.  Many a days I headed to work with hair smelling like puppy breath.  The good news is, puppy breath isn't all that offensive.  

Reba has since passed.  Last spring she developed a tumor in her stomach.  I do miss her every day, and it was great to take a minute to celebrate her puppihood.

I want to go on the record with: I really hate shooting layouts.  This is not crooked.  The cardstock is white. The border on the bubbly part is even all the way around.

If you want links to the Silhouette cuts, or read about the (cute) puppy prints, head over to the Silhouette blog for the rest of the story.

Hope you're staying warm!  Only 50 days til Spring! Yee ha!


  1. Look at your long hair! Fun page. The loss of a pet is just brutal. The first pet I owned died over 10 years ago. We have a different cat now who is great. I still miss our first one .... even more than I miss some of my relatives that have died!!!

    50 days to spring. Sure - according to the calendar anyway.

    I signed up for LOAD last night. It has been a long time since I have done a session. I need a kick in the pants to get re-motivated.

    1. "According to the calendar" - yes, but I have to cling to something! And 50 days doesn't seem that far off. Time is moving so quickly lately. I can't believe that January is almost over!

      LOAD sounds like fun. I'll have to consider the idea of signing up in May. I think life should be more sane then. Or does she not do May any more??
