So, today I want to start off with a layout I made for the latest Frosted Designs sketch challenge... I really loved the last couple of sketches, and this one was no exception! I kept it clean and simple, and I'm really happy with the result... This features my adorable little pup-pup, Ian.

Materials used:
Bella Blvd paper, American Crafts Glitter paper, Tim Holtz grungeboard shapes (hearts), and Thickers.

See? Super simple!

Now this next one I "scraplifted" from Lisa Watson on the XOXO blog. The prize for the month is a kit from Sweet Peach Crop Shop. I used a K&Company stack of papers that I've had for quite awhile on this LO.

Here's another quick LO with a pic of my Mom's dog using the Circa 1934 line from Cosmo Cricket.... This dog takes the best pictures! I'm still experimenting with taking pictures of my layouts.. I can never really get the quality to be as nice as I'd like it to be..
And in parting, I'd like to leave you with this little altered sign I made... it has some pretty pink ribbon attached to it so it can be hung from a wall, but I won't be hanging it up until I go back up to school. Since I don't have a lot of time for crafts while I'm up there, I made this little sign as inspiration for those long days of studying!
