Sally - Scrap Around the World July Challenge/ Prima BAP July

Hello Everyone

Sorry I was missing in action for a few days, but I was really busy creating in the background and really needed to get some projects finished! ;-)

I am happy to say that I can share a layout with you today, which I made for the Scrap Around the World Challenge here and the Prima BAP for this month too.

July 2015 BAP Jennifer

So here's my take.

This page is of my new puppy Sally and the bright and vibrant colours from the mood board were perfect for this little character! ;-)

In February my dog Blossom passed away and it was so incredibly sad.  So when my friend at work asked me if I wanted a puppy, I initially said "no".  He kept on at me for 2 weeks and eventually I said that I would take a puppy...there were 7.  At just 3 weeks old, I was asked if I would take her early because their Mother had stopped feeding the pups.  Her teats were too sore and they were raw, so she would not let them suckle.  So I took the little ball of fluff and had to feed her every 2 to 3 hours.  It really was so absolutely tiring, but so rewarding. She is now 6 weeks old and is absolutely precious.  A little Shar Pei.

So yes, I am really hoping that she is with our family for a very long time and I hope she walks a thousand miles with us! Blossom was only 15 months old and we had really hoped that she would be with us many years and many miles.

Sally has brought much sunshine, laughter and much energy to the house again.  So these vibrant and happy colours, so perfectly match her little character! ;-)

I used lots of Prima flowers and also used the fun and colourful 'All About Me" collection, along with a few bits and bobs from other Prima collections.

I love the splashy and grungy new Prima stamps and had a lot of fun playing with them.

I even fished out some very old rub ons, which I really do feel are still so cool, and managed to use a few around the page.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really do appreciate the visit!
Have a super evening!
