Awwww - Doggie Kisses!

Matt has a good thing going. He started a dog sitting business years ago and any time a neighbor needs help with their pet he get's a call. It's been a great way for him to earn some $$$ - and that's good, 'cause the boy likes to spend! And he's good at it. And dogs like him.

He helped with a new set of Pomeranians and I don't know what made me bring my camera, but I'm so glad I did. They LOVED Matt to no end:

It was hilarious!

This is another *HyBrId*  Used Jen Martakis Photo-A-Day template 2 that I altered, and her new March digi kit.  Had it printed out, and embellished with the cutest little Making Memories flowers and brads that came in a great crop prize from 2Peas. Gotta check out those online crops. You can win cool stuff! I sewed on some ric rac and added a tag to finish.

I've gotten a couple of questions about hybrid layouts, so if you're new to hybrid or digi, here's how I altered the template to suit my photos.  This is what Jen's template looked like to start:

I turned it on it's side:

and used the left side and top side rectangles for small pics. For the larger pic, I deleted 3 of the remaining 4 rectangles and enlarged the last rectangle to hold my large photo.  I turned the journaling around, moved my title, and deleted the embellishment circles:

Have I told you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE templates? They make scrapping so much more fun, because you get to concentrate on the fun stuff - like what cool doo-dad you're going to embellish the layout with!

have a great and creative day! and thanks for stopping by!
