I wasn't joking when I said I was wordy, teacherlisa ... 464 words (without the song quote at the end) for this LO that I've been struggling to finish. My mother fostered a pup this summer and I helped out a lot. Alas, the situation wasn't ideal and ended with a lot of heartbreak (we have no clue what happened to her after we were told to bring her back immediately, we don't know whether she's been adopted, whether they continued her medical treatment since they didn't seem to care much, etc.). This was a LO I needed to pull out of myself and get cathartic with. I'm glad I managed to do that tonight.
Digital 12x12 LO: 'Love always' about puppy fostering turning sour because of humans, not the actual poor pup, the heartbreak afterwards and trying to find the positive in the memories
so sorry for such a bad rescue attitude and situation. i just fostered my first with an amazing rescue in CA. i adopted my baby from them and decided to foster an older dog. he went to a great home. i got to decide who was able to meet him and adopt him. amazing experience yet heartbreaking that I couldn't keep him As the rescue partner discussed with me, my husband wasn't on board with this dog; my cats didn't trust this dog, my dog was jealous of him,etc. one perfect one will come along later. beautiful baby and beautiful layout!
buggirl47 - what an adorable puppy - love your pages!
thank you. I love him to death. he is my baby now that my boys are grown. Jägermeister is his full name. LOL. my son and I got him a week before he left for Air Force Basic Training and he named him. I think he has helped me so much with my youngest son gone for so long andmissing him so much as I homeschooled him for the high school years

I still have some summer photos, but they can go into a summer album I am doing for dd's family move. Or if I add these to my general family summer album, dd and her family are here often and they can see them when they are here.
Linda , I love the photos of the locomotives. The white background with the gray mats make them stand out on the page. It’s so interesting to see the beautiful designs they used on them also. I love the layered torn gray borders.~ That red locomotive is beautiful and so sleek. Love the design you used on that page.~The yellow with black dots and the triangles are great background for your photos of this engine. Nicely done!~ I really like the way you have used gray on the little car photo. It makes me want to go buy more gray cardstock.
buggirl47 , what a cute little doggie. I love the collar you made and the cute hydrant paper. This page makes me smile.~ This makes me giggle. They do look like a flock of seagulls. Cute little puppies!! Great pages. ~ Cute designs on your pocket pages. How many puppies do you have?
Dictionary , I love your Read page. I really love your scrapping style. Clean and very classy. Your pages evoke emotion as everything leads the eye to the photos. This is so tender! Beautiful work.
Wow! You ladies are awesome! I am trying to catch up on the posts!
So, grammadee - Your lake layouts have the best pictures. What a fun time! And I really like that "Lake Life" card! Your layout about the stops on the trip - loved how you did the title! Such fun to mix it up! And Bark in the Park! They have that at the minor league ball park that we go to a lot. Our kids always want to bring our dog, but I am not so sure she is ready for the public like that! LOL! But I loved the papers you used and the paw prints! So cute!
linda - You are so productive! WOW! And I feel like I am getting a trip of my own looking at your layouts! I love that you scrapped the postcard. I often save things like that but sometimes I use them, sometimes I don't. And your Locomotive layouts are so cool! Great pictures and close ups. Love the torn papers on the page.
sleepingbooty - Your dog layout really pulls at the heartstrings! I love journaling and it is nice to get a whole story down on the page. And you did it and made the page look so nice too!
Dictionary - Oh, my goodness, your layouts make me want to go back to having little ones around again! And that picture of daddy reading to the girls! HEART!!!
joblackford - I love your idea of the TN ephemera journal! Such a great idea! I always love to see your work on Insta!
nylene - Your Disney page is so amazing! I finished a Disney album earlier in the summer. I wish I would have had some of the cute embellishments you used! I really love that Mickey head that says love. Also your cousin camp layout is so fun! And so cool that he won with his project! My mom does Grammy camp with her grandkids that seems very similar. What wonderful memories they will have!
buggirl47 - I really love all your doggie pages! So sweet! Especially that title page! Love the embellishments you are using!
I now have photos in my flickr account, I cannot figure out how to add them to the group. I read the administrations post too. Please help!
I should probably scan my 8.5x11 pages, so they show up better. I don't do too many 12x12 pages. I just took a photo of everything.
Here's the first one. 11x8.5
SCARECROW PAGE; #7- -3, 4x6 photos, 3 points, #14- Grab 5, 1 point, #21- use pre-made words,1, #33- Hello-ween - 1, #53- Rock Those Rectangles, 1, #59- Scrap a page from an unfinished album, 1 TOTAL= 8
Carta Bella PP, Simple Stories, Carta Bella, and Echo Park Stickers
Pick one, choose one, - 1, #4- scrap the outdoors, 1, #7- 4x6 one point for each uncut 4x6 photo, 2, #9- Cardstock time, 1, #12- Getting inky, 1 #13- Bling it up!, 1, #17- Use those sticker books!, 1, #27- Scraps, Scraps and More Scraps!, 1, #41- STASH BUSTING CHALLENGE, 4, #44- Mix n/ Match titles, 1, #49- Love it or List it, 1, #54- Be There Or Be Square, 1, #57- Color your world!, 1, #59- Scrap a page from an unfinished album, 1

It's Owl Good #7- 4x6 one point for each uncut 4x6 photo, 1 , #12- Getting inky, 1, #13 Bling it up!, 1, #17 - Use those sticker books!, 1, #41- STASH BUSTING CHALLENGE, 4, #53- Rock Those Rectangles, 1, #57- Color your world! , 1, #59- Scrap a page from an unfinished album, 1, #80 Stripes & Dots, 1, #95- Scrap someone you love, 2
Echo Park PP, Dollar Store stickers; owls, heart and puffy circle stickers in title, misc. cardstock, colorbox purple ink, circle punches, Spellbinders die
I blurred the journaling but it does relate to the title. The heart sticker in the title scanned a little odd. The shine around the heart doesn't stand out like that IRL.

Linda, I just LOVE your "throwback" LO. That yellow piece really pulls the two pages together and I love the crisp black title on it. Did you cut that with a Silhouette or other machine?
Your little guy pages are really sweet, refugeepea. That has got to be the cutest scarecrow EVER! And I love the punny title on the sleepy page, and the cute little circles with the pineapples for the pirate page and the owls which are perfect for that title!
