Going to the dogs

Well it's August, I know I can't believe it either.  Where has the summer gone?  The good news is I can share my layouts from the August "Growth" kit from Scrapbooking From the Inside Out.  Have I told you about how I stole my husband's dog?  I have always liked small girl dogs, so when my husband brought home a boy golden retriever I was none too pleased.  Our 7 yr old mini schnauzer had passed away a few months before and I just wasnt ready for another dog yet.  So for a few months I just ignored him, which was not easy as he is most insistent.  Then my husband had to leave for a month of military training and I had to start taking care of Fat Charlie (who has never been and is not fat).  I think the lonely nights got to me and eventually he was sleeping in my bed lol.  By the time my husband came home Charlie had little to no interest in him anymore.  He is now content to spend his days at my feet or following me with his nose against the back of my thigh. 

This months concept of growth was a hard one for me and most of my pages are quite literal.  This growth chart is the one outside the box idea that I had.  That Hambly woodgrain paper was favorite thing in the entire kit, and those Prima flocked rubons were fun too!
