Well we wanted a puppy and a puppy we got! Do you remember what it's like to have a puppy? Well I didn't but now I do. It's like having a newborn baby. But she's soo worth it!! Don't you think?

Like how this Thinking of you card turned out. I used Caboodle papers and handmade the flower and petals.

It has been crazy busy getting the kids ready for school and taking care of our new puppy "SOOKIE".

I love this Layout that I finished recently. Dominic is now 10 years old. It was just last summer when he got the nerve to "jump" into water over his head!

It was the 4th of July when he decided to finally give it a shot and "jumped" off the Deans Pier. He was so proud of himself and we were too!!!
