An Epic Day with Maggie — Monday Montage #14

Monday Montage Banner -- October

 

We’re back with another Monday Montage blog hop for you tonight.  There are ten of us participating, and you can easily make your way through the hop by clicking on the “Next” or “Back” buttons at the bottom of each post.  I have an 8″x8″ scrapbook page to share with you this time.

Some of you may remember that when I was at Convention last summer, my family adopted a dog while I was gone.  I came back to find an adorable two-year old Pug named Maggie.  Well, Maggie is a full-fledged member of the family now, and I have loved to see how she has bonded with each of us, especially my nine-year old daughter who paid for the adoption and feeds Maggie every day.  Maggie runs upstairs and waits patiently outside Kendall’s door each morning until Kendall wakes up, and then gives Kendall an excited greeting.  And Kendall always makes time to love her dog back.

Before Christmas, I was taking some shots of the kids for Christmas cards and of course, Maggie had to be included.  I decided I needed to make a scrapbook page to remember our first real photo shoot with Maggie.

I went back to an old favorite, the Epic Day This and That suite of products for my layout. I also used one sheet of the Kaleidoscope dsp (the Basic Gray graph paper background sheet).

There are some really fun Epic Day This and That Designer Stickers that coordinate with the dsp, and I used several of them on this layout.  It makes for a quick and easy page.

I love scrapbooking, and I really should do it more.  It is what first drew me into this papercrafting hobby.  And my kids love looking back through pages like this.  This page will actually be going up on a bulletin board in our home office/craft room for a while.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog and check out her amazing creation. If you’d rather work your way backwards, you’re welcome to hop on over to Wendy Weixler’s blog and see some of her awesome-sauce work.  Either way, be sure to make your way through the other nine posts.
