PAWPRINTS ON MY HEART



Thank you to our sponsors for this hop. Check out their blog and their prizes for this hop.

Thank you for joining this hop that showcases our furry family members who are so dear to our hearts.

My furry babies outnumber my children right now: three cats and two dogs compared with four children. I would have more fur babies if  we had the room for them. 

Today I did a layout to showcase the newest member of our household. Bea is a sweet English bulldog. My American bulldog mix passed away in August and in September an ad appeared on Craig's List with the heading "Broken English Bulldog." My curiosity got the best of me and I opened the ad and decided I had to contact the owners. Bea started out being able to hear, but because her owners didn't know how to care for her properly, she got a bad infection in her ears that left her deaf.

The people I got her from were not the original owners but people who stepped in to help her. She now is living at our house and is spoiled rotten. She is clingy due to being deaf but we like it. She's a 50 pound cuddlebug.


The animal print paper is from the DCWV Animal Paper Stack that came out years ago. I don't think you can find it any longer. :( I used my Cricut Explore Air to cut out the dog and paw designs. I hand cut the banner.

This is a close up of what I wrote plus shows so of the extra touches I added to the layout such as buttons and glitter.

Now for some scrapbooking magic...

I did the cute little banner on the top of the layout and I came up with a great way to string yarn through the tiny little holes. I needled wasn't big enough for the yarn and using a needle with a eye that was big enough would make the holes in the banner too big. I came across my needle threader and put it to work and it worked perfectly!
