A Boy and his Dog

In 2005, my DSs and I decided to get a dog. We went to the local animal shelter. I'd told the boys that we should get a small dog. We walked around the shelter looking at the small yappy dogs. Every time, we walked by this big dog, he whined a little and leaned into the gate. We couldn't resist him. We found out later that the reason he leaned against the gate is that one leg is slightly shorter than the other. LOL Goofy dog.

We brought Pete home that day and haven't regretted it for a second. He's a great dog....albeit a little goofy. One day earlier this year, my oldest DS was out goofing with Pete. I started snapping pictures. Pete loves Erik. Erik loves Pete.

I'm submitting the first page of LO to my first "Stuck on You - Sketches" challenge. Here's the sketch inspiration!

I have to tell you I love the crafty challenges. If you know of any more, leave me a comment to tell me where to find them! My crafting has gotten so much better with the Crop Chocolate challenges, I want to do MORE; I'm hooked!

Products used:
Bazzill (and some other cheapie) cardstock
Making Memories Chloe's Closet (8x8)
MME So Sophie
Webster's pages paper
Timeless Twine
Cuttlebug "good dog" die
Washi tape

I scraplifted the twine butterfly from one of the crafty ladies on CC. I love this little butterfly, don't you?

Here's the page one inspired by the sketch:

 And here's page 2:

We are so lucky to have this "Good Dog" in our lives!

Craftily yours,
