Monday Musings

So it's Monday.

I'll tell you a secret-I actually love Mondays.

No really.

It's a chance to start fresh for the week. It's the day when making new goals are paramount and possibility lies in the rest of the week. Best of all, on Monday's I have nothing planned after school or in the evening so it's a day with my boys. And I love my boys.

Speaking of my boys-this weekend we had a birthday party for Eugene. Yeah, we're those people. I even made him a puppy dog cake. LOL.


I recently started compiling pics to make a little blurb book of-who else- but Eugene and I came across a bunch of photos of a Fall puppy date that we had with our friend N & his puppy Clipper.


They had a great time and so did I taking pics and scrapbooking the photos. I mean how can you not love that action shot? Eugene looks like a crazy beast!


My lovely friend Cathie, who also has a love of puppies, gave me an awesome set of doggie brads that I used on this page. Check out that cute paw print! 


And I finally used one of those basdges I've been hoarding from 'A Life Handmade'. I also used some of that awesome paw print washi tape. Love it.

In the same visit I also happened to get a few close up shots of Eugene lounging on the patio. Look at my baby-


How can you not fall in love?!

This was a great opportunity to use up some scrappy bits. I used papers that were mostly leftovers from Studio Calico kits and Paperie kits. It was easy to tie all the colors together with a little mist and the colorful chevron strip.


I also used an old Ali Edwards stamp that I dug out from ages ago to add to the bottom with a little button and a little gem.


And of course, a little journaling tucked away for safe keeping.

And now, I must be off to plan my week! Enjoy your Monday.
