Well, on this One-Year Anniversary of Layla joining our family - I thought it would be appropriate to share a picture from her first day here. Looks like she's smiling and saying 'Thanks', right? I can't remember if this picture was before or after she bit my foot that first day!? Either way - I knew it would take her some time to adjust and learn that OUR family would never hurt her and that she would not have to fear being abused. Her guard was definitely up for about the first three months, but slowly, she has become a new dog.
Page Maps for help with the layout. That site is GREAT for scrapbook AND cardmaking layouts. I've printed off a punch of their .pdf files and when I'm struggling for a layout - I reach for those files.
All the paper used is from DCWV "Dogs" paper pack that my mom found for $3.00 at Marshalls. Gotta love her!!! The ribbon and the 'leash' were from my under-used doggy stock!! The letters are cut from Sizzlits alphas: Curly Girl and Rat-a-Tat (I think that's what it's called).
Thanks for letting me stray from my cardmaking for a bit! Hope you've enjoyed the pages. Most of you know I'm a proponent of animal rescue - so please, if you are looking to add a pet to your family - please check out your local shelters, rescues or look on Petfinder!! Do not buy from pet stores!!!!
