GIRLS BEST FRIEND



I took these pictures of Leslie and her dogs a few weeks ago when I was visiting.  She just loves these pups.   Chopper the one on the left they adopted from the shelter in October when they lived in DC, it took a lot of work to be able to have one in their apartment but they did it.   Then they moved back to Missouri in December and Leslie took a part time job at the humane society there while looking for something full time.   It is there she fell in love with Malcolm (the dog she is sitting with).  Malcolm had been adopted twice and returned but Malcolm has now found a forever home along with his fur brother Chopper.

I get to enter this layout in three challenges, something that rarely happens.   But I love it when it does.    I started out with the thought of entering the challenge at "Lasting Memories"  Challenge #233-Best  of Friends.   These pictures really show Leslie with her two best furry friends.

Next I looked for a sketch to use for these pictures.   That took me to  "Sketch-N-Scrap" where I found this awesome sketch #77 that I have at the bottom of this post.

Then I remembered that one of the other challenges I had read about yesterday was the one at
"Picture This!!"  the challenge was to use 2 pictures + dark background + butterfly.

Put all three together and I came up with this layout.

Check out all the different challenge details and enter one or all.

"LASTING MEMORIES"   Challenge #233 - Best of Friends
"SKETCH-N-SCRAP"    Sketch #77
"PICTURE THIS!!"    March 15th challenge, 2 pictures + dark background + butterfly
