I spent a little time this afternoon creating a layout and a card.  I am going to share my layout with you now.

I wanted to follow the current challenge at Lasting Memories, which is "Dancing with Paws".   Simple for me, include animals.  My subject this time is Tessa.  She went for her first swim last month.  We weren't sure she would swim or if she would like the water.  By oh my, she LOVES it.  Stew has lost track of her a few times this past week and he's sure to find her in the creek.

I used this week's sketch at Sketch Inspiration for this page.  At first I wasn't too sure about the sketch.  But then I found it very inspiring.

And here is my page....

I cut the circle with my George and Basic Shapes cartridge.  It's hard to see, but I topped the circle with a sun cut from the Designer Calendar cartridge.

I used this page as my entry for Week 29 in the Scrappin'-n-Chattin' 52 Week Challenge.  I am also entering it into the Sewing challenge at SnC, which is one of our monthly challenges.  I used a template to stitch the paw in the middle of the page. 

Other challenges that I am entering:

Bitten By The Bug 2 - Here Comes The Sun   (Cut from Designer Calendar)
