Precious Puppy Layout

Okay, so I'm in love. Like big time in love. Like totally consumed, obsessed kind of love.

With my puppy.

My husband and I grew up without pets. And, we were fine with that. Actually, we always were grateful we married someone who understood we never wanted pets. The fur! The mess! The responsibility! No, thank you.

But then Indy. Well, actually Willett. Willett is my neighbor's Havanese and I kind of fell in love with her. And I had to have a baby, I mean, a puppy of my own. So, entered Indy.

We adopted Indy in February and he has changed our life. For the better. As the journaling above says (hard to read, I know), he's sweet, snuggly and so adorable. :)

Love this layout? It's from Pattern 8, Make It From Your Heart: Volume 2. CTMH's how-to books are so helpful. Most of the products used above are retired and I am proud of that. I'm trying to use up my stash, you too?

Indy says, "Woof!" meaning "Thanks for looking!"

November SOTM Blog Hop - New Year's Cheer

Welcome to the November SOTM Blog Hop, featuring New Year's Cheer, a set of 13 stamps. If you’ve come from Maureen's blog, you’re on the right path. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s blog. 

Along the hop, you'll see artwork from 29 talented consultants who can't wait to share their creativity with you using the cheerful stamps below!

I decided to use Peacock, White Daisy and Ruby for my color scheme. I added a few products I had left from other projects, like the ribbon, the overlay with the stars and the swirly silver glitter banner. Quick and easy!
