LOVE 44

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 22, 2014 @ 5:26 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! The weather is really beautiful here so I've been enjoying riding my bike outside when I can. Connor participated in a National Invitational Track & Field meet this weekend so Scott and I went to cheer him on Friday night and Saturday morning :)

I took time to create a layout featuring a photo of my sweet little girl Gretchen using a variety of my favorite products including: MFT stamps, Die-namics dies and Pion design patterned papers: 
Gretchen is my sweet little girl West Highland Terrier. She's 8 years old already ~ time flies. Seems like yesterday when I was running out the door every 15 - 20 minutes for a potty break! I embellished the page with several homemade blossoms. I used the  stencil to add texture and additional design to the background:
I randomly stamped a butterfly from Winged Beauties as well as polka dots from Distressed Background Blocks:
For color and story inspiration, I joined along with the CSI 115 challenge:
Here's how I incorporated the different elements from the story:

The Scheme:
I used all 5 colors
The Evidence:
I used: hearts, flowers, stamps and a mixed media background
The Testimony:
Used the Inspiration Words: Imagine in my journaling

For sketch inspiration, I joined along with My Scraps & More sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Gretchen is such a little beauty! (And your page is too!).....Isn't it awful how quickly our little companions grow old?

What a wonderful page Mona! I love when you feature your sweet little dogs! Looks like Gretchen had just had a hair cut in this one! Pretty colors and journaling on this! I envy you your warm weather - we were in the 50's for a bit - but the temps are supposed to plummet over the next couple of days and maybe even some snow on Wed!!
