YOU ARE ALL SO SWEET - SMOOCHES TO ALL!

Have I told you guys how much I completely appreciate you??!! Because I do - alot! Thanks for the well wishes for my pup, he is doing much better. Seems he has a bladder and kidney infection but he is on antibiotics and seems much more his normal self - thank the good Lord for that! You see, my dogs are part of my family and well, they are really my dogs, especially Clyde. I love that little guy and was very upset that something seemed to be wrong. At first they were worried he had been poisoned, but they ruled that out pretty quickly. Anyway, he is on the mend, with his mommy's watchful eye making sure he stays that way. This pic is him this morning holding on to his bone so nobody else would get it - that is a normal behavior for him and I was happy to see it! Now, on to my project for the day! Tabitha aka Zippity-Do-Dah posted a scrapbook challenge on her blog. She is VERY talented, I love her blog! So, I decided to do this one. There were stipulations: something green, the word lucky, flowers, brads, eyelets, ribbons, and staples needed to be used. So, here is my take on the challenge. I am actually going to put this one in a 12x12 frame and hang it in my scrap room so I wasn't too worried about the bulkiness of my embellishments. I also made a pocket journal tag that talks about how much I love my kids. This is a pic of my kids at Christmas - I just made it sepia in color. My theme is lucky - how lucky I feel that these kids are in my life, that God blessed me with these marvelous little human beings. They are my reason for being, and I feel very lucky to hold the title of their mom! There are some SU! items used, and some non because I have so much scrapping stuff pre-SU! that I need to used it up! Pretty straightforward, but ask if you have a question. As for the blog candy, I have decided to wait until Monday to post it - I know, you have to be patient a little while longer, but it WILL be worth it, I promise! Just wait until you see the goodies I have for you!! Have a great weekend!

I'm SOOOO glad Clyde is alright !! Last fall our golden retriever in the span of one week we found out he had a super low almost inactive thyroid, hit by a car and had a cancerous tumour removed. It was one of the most difficult weeks of my life but I'm so thankful to say he's strong and healthy and we couldn't love him more !! I sweep up after him everyday and I could careless because I love him so much !!!
OH yeah....I'm cried because you told me to stop being a wuss.......bwahhhhh!!! hehehehehe

Glad he is doing better Alex. We had to get antibiotics for our dog too cause she has a bladder infection. It is so hard on us as well cause they can't tell us whats going on and we don't always know they are hurting!
