Meeting Charlie!

Mitchell is meeting Charlie for the first time the day after we brought him home.  Charlie was so tiny then, weighing in at a little over 3 pounds!  He just had his 12 week check up Friday (1/25), and he weighs 9 pounds 3 ounces.  He's a whopper now!  He looks like a gangly teenager with long legs--he also has floppy ears that are almost too big for his cute face. I need to get a photo of him before he changes again!!!

Anyway, I made this for PageMaps Fancy Pants Love Note sketch contest.  I felt bad but the only paper I had on hand of Fancy Pants did not go with these photos or the sketch.  But, I did at least use their letter stickers!  The rest is Jillibean Soup!  The 2012 tag is American Crafts. And, the cute little pup stamp is from October Afternoon.  I thought this came together well and was very happy to get a chance to scrap with a "new baby" in the house. He still requires almost constant attention to avoid little peepee messes in the house and avoid our carpet being devoured!!!!  

Our Realtor had an open house at our old house today, so we are crossing our fingers that someone there or someone else will make an offer soon!

Hope you are having a great weekend. I'm spending most of the weekend working--which is a good thing right now!

Charlie - All Boy

See how the bracketed page is lopsided on this page? That is exactly what this little pup Charlie has done to our lives--made it very lopsided! Isn't he adorable though?  I made this page for Simon Says Stamp challenge to use a splash of color. I chose yellow mainly because of Charlie's pacifier chew toy.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are having a great day!

P.S. Please pray for us that our old house sells soon or at least has a contract by the middle of February. We've been given a lot of blessings that have made us do ok having two house payments, but we got news that at the end of February our home insurance will be WAY more expensive! Thanks and we appreciate any prayers you could offer!

I barely recognize it, is it a scrapbook page?


Well, here it is--my first layout of the year!  The paper is a beautiful, older collection from Little Yellow Bicycle called "25 Days of Christmas."  I've had it awhile but have been saving it for something special. Yes, I believe Charlie is special enough for this collection!!!  The old paper qualifies it for Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge and my friend Stacy's "Anything Goes" challenge.  The brown string on the left side of the photo came from her, too.  My husband still hasn't set up the photo booth so I snapped this on my deck steps. The picture has a shadow running right through it that isn't there in real life!  I'm saving for obedience training for Charlie so that he can participate as a therapy dog. I'd been wanting to do some volunteering (just been feeling called lately) and it occurred to me that this would help me get over my shyness and still help.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you like my first attempt back into scrapping!
