Laughter, joy, puppy!!

Awwww, what a wonderful day especially since the headache has gone away! 

This young man won my puppy's heart on his first visit to meet his girlfriend's parents.  Since then my daughter has married this wonderful lad and he is now in Afghanistan.   I thought this layout would cheer my daughter up and hopefully bring a smile to her pretty face.

 This is my first entry with sketchabilities using their wonderful August sketch.

 I wanted to keep this layout fresh and light to shine on the subject matter...Puppy kisses!!  I have dabbled today into the world of mixed media.  I texturized the paper with gesso and blue paint that I thinned down then took a tooth brush and spritzed it on the paper.
 I felt the page needed movement to coincide with picture.  Don't you just love baker's twine and washi tape!!  Such fun elements that really add life to the page.
Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.  I always love your visits and hope you will become a follower of mine.  Til next time....
