Hop along to every stop on this hop and leave a comment.

Here is my project that I created for my birthday.


My very good friend Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs made me some digital stamps of my beloved dog Louie as a birthday gift!  I think this may be one of the best gifts I have ever received!  Thank you so much Heather!  If you would like to own your own digital stamp of Louie click HERE.  I would love to see how you color my Lou.

I used (as always) a Let's Scrap Sketch for my Layout.  If you would like to learn more about Let's Scrap click Here

  1. Oh Chriss! You have me blushing! Your post was supposed to be all about you and I feel like your words were a birthday gift to me! I am so happy that you love the digis. I know how much Louie means to you. He and I were conspiring together on facebook and he let me know which photos were his best sides and which to draw inspiration from - so you really should be thanking him too ;)

    I LOVE your project! it is fantastic!!! LOVE the colors, beautiful photos and all of the memories.

    Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful celebration. I hope you have a fantastic birthday!

    HUGS!

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
