Meet Jefferson

As most of you know, on December 27, 2010 we lost our precious baby girl, our English Bulldog "Speckles", who was so much more than a dog. She was my best friend and my constant companion. I miss her every single day. Also, the very day after we lost her, my Fatherinlaw passed away unexpectedly. He had a dog. Well, we lost our dog, he lost his human, so after a lot of thought we decided to try to take him. We didn't know how it would work out, he was 165 pounds of big, outside, slobbery dog who had never been in the house, never been on a ride or anything. We took him to the vet, then brought him home. He had a couple of accidents the first day, but after that he has been wonderful!!! He has adjusted exceptionally well. He's such a big ham! He isn't my Speckles, but I need to be fair to him, he is a very good dog and I can not compare him or blame him. So, I've been trying really hard to let him into my heart. He will hever hold the special part that Speckles has, but he will be as a very good friend told me "the second best dog we've ever had"!!! Thanks Krissy!!! And here is the pic!!! Wish us luck!

How About Some Graphic45 Goodness?

Well, I'm sure most of you know that Graphic45 is having a Design Team call. I haven't decided to try or not, but I do love their products, and I didn't go to Winter CHA, but their booth at Chicago this Summer was FANTASTIC!!! Everything was themed and the staff even had on Steampunk outfits~!!! It was so cool! I love their products, I love vintage. I don't get a chance to use much of it, I can't find it close by, but Pam (MCS) puts it in the kits from time to time and I LOVE it! I wouldn't know how to act if I had a complete line to play with!!! Anyway, here are some projects that I have done!

First is a mini that I did for our dd's wedding. I left the journaling blank so that she can fill it in herself. I used miscellaneous chipboard pages and paper from the "Once Upon A Springtime" collection. I also added some chipboard elements for dimension. And of course, some blooms!!!

This is a page of our youngest ds and his girlfriend! I thought this picture was very "Edward/Bella" looking!!! I used the "Once Upon A Springtime" for this also.

These are pictures of our youngest ds and dd playing in the creek! This was a really simple page and really quick to do.

This page is special to me, this is a picture of me with my Dad and Mom on the courthouse steps in 1963 on the day that my adoption became final, I tried to keep this page really soft looking.

This is our dd in the backyard during Spring. I used a vine trim and wound it through the frame like it was growing. I popped up a couple of the little fairies and added blooms!

This one is our dd when she was a baby! I used the Springtime collection again!!! I love this line. I cut out some of the blooms and popped them up and added stickles for dimension on this one.

This is a box that I altered for cards. I used mixed Christmas collections from the last 2 years for this. I covered all sides.

Here are 2 cards that I made. I love the richness of these papers.

This is a page that I did for TCR and a color challenge. The Christmas collections are just gorgeous!!!

This is a page that I did with the older Christmas line. I did this page a while back for my lss.

I hope you have enjoyed browsing my G45 projects. For all who decide to try out, I wish you all the best of luck. I can't wait to see who the lucky chosen ones will be!!!
