Reasons To Love Dogs

I snapped this photo of my dog, Rudy, this morning as he napped in bed next to me. He's so freakin' adorable. He's actually from a shelter. He was found half-starved, living on the streets. How anybody could abandon this guy is beyond me.

The P52 April Collection by Brine Design

I love the colors in the April Collection by Brine Design. They were perfect for this photo my husband took as he wandered around Las Vegas. I used some of the journaling cards to make a quick and easy mat for the photo. I think this is this first non-Project 52 layout that I've made with this collection.

Digital Collage

I took an art journaling class by Tangie Baxter recently and it inspired me to try digital collage. I made this layout featuring me cuddling on the couch with my 13 year old dog. I had him since he was 4 months old and watching him get older is hard. Strangely enough our new puppy, Mia, reminds me of Blue a great deal. He even likes her. He's only ever liked one puppy before Mia; a foster we had years and years ago when he was 1 1/2 years old.

Project 52: Weeks 10 and 11

I'm still working on my Project 52. It seems like I get within a few weeks of "catching up" and then life intervenes.  Here are weeks 10 & 11; which means I am only 6 weeks behind! Both layouts are made with templates from Brine Designs P52 Collections. I have to say that her collections are making almost staying caught up so much easier. And some of them are more than templates. All that clustering on Week 11 came with the template.
