Gus and his dad Trigger

the top picture is Trigger, Gus' dad. I posted it to see them together. The last time I saw Trigger, Gus was 5 months old and still looked very much like a puppy. He doesn't look like a puppy anymore as you can tell LOL

isn't he getting big? he's about 75lbs now at 9 months. He is a true lab, he loves his food! I'm not sure what he'll weigh when he's done since the vet says he could keep filling out till he's a year and a half OMG!! he is a good boy for the most part. It's nice that he's starting to sleep through the night (that only started in the last 2 wks) for about 3 months I was getting up at 1am and 3:30 am to let him out. I know I would not be happy to have to be doing that for much longer!!!

always fun to find a new way to use the stash

I got out my Maya Road chandelier crystals and coloured them with my Copics. It's pretty quick, but I had to wait until they dried to string them and add them to the layout. I think they add just the right amount of vintage to the layout.

more wonderful goodness from Making Memories

check this out. I had to pick up a cute little birdhouse from Micheal's for $1.50. I knew I would alter it somehow.... and this is what I came up with. I used the awesome Making Memories Noel papers and embellishments. I also used some Webster's ribbon, dew drops and some Prima flowers and embellishments. The Scrapping Nook is where I got my Making Memories Noel papers and embellishments.

so nice to scrap again

I was busy with the Noel line from Making Memories yesterday. Janice from the Scrapping Nook sent me some of the line and this is what I came up with with it. I was busy painting all morning while I was watching the miners being saved in Chile. It was very uplifting. After playing with paper strips, I realized that if I cut the 4" square, I can always mitre the corners afterwards. duh!!! anyways, live and learn right LOL

without further adieu, here it is.

I love fall

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We were lucky enough to go out for a drive and look at the beautiful fall colours before dinner. Fall is my most favourite time of the year. It has even got me scrapping again. I had done the distress stickles on this paper about a year ago but I never did make a layout out of it .... till now that is. so glad that it's finally done
