Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! Referencing the saying "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb" this week, we're all about animals!
I was inspired to create a layout featuring my two sweet dogs ~ Gretchen and Griffin:
I love to run but my dogs little four legs can't quite go the distance, so I take them for a ride in their stroller.
One of my favorite photos of my sweet dogs positioned in a Cabinet Card Frame made for a great focal point on my layout.
To compliment the vintage frame, I combined pretty patterned papers from the Wallflower Cardstock Pack then embellished with Rusty Hinge colored die cut Grungeboard Gadget Gears
For added interest, various Remnant Rubs were randomly applied:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)

My heart simply melts when I see a photo of these little Westies. They bring bag gorgeous memories of our Meggie, who ruled the roost here for many years. How kind you are to take them running in their own little buggy. A perfectly balanced page. TFS

Mona,
Oh my gosh, Griffin and Gretchen are totally adorable - and look quite happy and content in their stroller. Your layout is very pretty and the details are wonderful and those cogs look quite aged and rusty. I don't know what you used on them - but they look perfectly aged. As always, thanks for sharing and give Griffin and Gretchen a little chin rub for me!
