Friends thru the Ages

I met Sarah in the 7th grade when I felt like a nerdy outcast and she was the popular flirt. Despite distance (we both moved in high school), we kept in touch. I was her Maid of Honor and she was mine. This picture is when she came to visit me when my youngest was born. It is so nice to have a friend who knows where you came from and sees the evolution of who you are.

To showcase this photo, I used MOXXIE's Springtime line filled with juicy, happy colors. The vibrancy of the line sings to me of friendship and youth.

I smeared paint on the background, then stamped over with more paint. Layered on the pretty Springtime papers and used MOXXIE letters that coordinate so well. A few embellishments here and there and the page was a breeze

Waiting on a swimming line (fingers crossed, hint, hint). I'd love to see more Martial Arts as well. 

To show off one of these lines, here is my son's basketball team photo. I played with lines to give it a look of motion.

Christmas Pups

Our dogs are truly members of our family so of course, they need to celebrate Christmas with us...whether they like it or not. I made both pages with MOXXIE's Happy Pawlidays.

In 2000, we have a white and red dog. For this simple page, I added some red paint to anchor the photos and the paper and stickers did the rest of the work for me.

 Well, 13 years later both those beloved pups have passed away and we have 2 dogs again. Somehow, they are white and red again. We bought these doggy elf costumes for the 2 pets above (they hated them) and reused them in 2013 for these 2 pups.

Don't they look like the most unhappy elves ever? I must admit, it cracks me up!!
These papers can be used for doggy or kitty Christmas pics or just for Christmas pics without pets. But why? It's so much fun to include your pets...whether they like it or not.
