Hi you all this is from LOAD514-Day 11. The theme was VIP's and the prompt was: Puppy Love. This prompt could go in so many different directions but I thought this would be the perfect time to document Barney our dog, the first pet I ever known. Barney and I we have a special connection.
Sketch~N~Scrap: Inspired by Sketch #5:
The background paper I chose was a piece from last month's Counterfeit kit and it was a fun one for this layout cause it already had some elements printed on it, couple of borders and a picture spot.
I have one drawer dedicated to dog theme paper, so I pulled out 2 pattern pieces of paper one for the borders and one for the main photo mat.
Barney was very special in my life. She said (my Mom) that when she was carrying me a bat had somehow gotten into the house, Barney had it cornered and while Mom was trying to get him away from the bat, his claws left a scratch on her stomach and she says that is the same marking (birth mark) that I have on my right temple. She says that is how I got it, no wonder I don't like bats near me but that is another story. So I carry around a memory of Barney with me all my life and a good conversation story when I'm asked what I did to my head. Not so much now compare to when I was a kid, I even had someone ask if I had brain surgery :)
Thanks for stopping by today, do you have a favorite story to tell from your past?
