Lucky Me!

I guess I should start this post of by letting you all know that I am that 'crazy dog lady'.

We have two adorable Boxers who snuck into my heart, wrapped their little {big} paws around it,
and are currently holding it hostage.

It hasn't always been this way, I was never really a dog person until we got Daisy.

We've had some ups and downs with her health, she's extremely bratty and temperamental,
but she is my "heart dog" and I count my blessings that she's mine. I mean, ours.

Okay, on to the crafty part......

I stumbled upon this amazing sketch from Elle's Studio

and immediately got to work.

Because I scrap backwards I had most of the layout completed 
without having a photo.

So I went strolling through my online photo book and came across the perfect picture.
Of my Daisy. I mean "our" Daisy.

How adorable is she?! She follows the sunny spot around the house and was quite perturbed when I got in her face to snap this photo. She makes me laugh.

I used some inexpensive chipboard letters from Target for the title.

More inexpensive details - washi from Target and a sentiment I printed and cut out.

The journaling card is from the Smash collection. 
I tucked it underneath the layers of paper.

The sketch made this layout so easy to put together, so a huge thank you to Elle's Studio!
