The Memory Nest - Make It Monday challenge #73

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at The Memory Nest. Take a look at the fabulous sketch.

I was looking through my dad's photos the other day and discovered a couple of pics of the dog we had when I was little. I didn't even know these photos existed so of course they had to be scanned and scrapped.

Sherry was a beautiful golden gingery colour and had the most appealing face. I was about five years old in the photo and can remember how mischievous she was as a puppy, almost totally destroying my teddy bear - which I still have today!

Every time I see a dog nowadays I measure it up to Sherry and chose the sticker words under the title because thet's exactly how I feel.

I used a combination of stickers and punched circles with stickers added to create my banner. I also punched three yellow hearts and added the same enamel dots, wooden shapes and stamped words to make my triangle of interest around the photo mats.

As I've typed up this post I've realised I have loads more memories of Sherry and really need to get them journalled - watch this space for a second page devoted to her.

Paper: Chatterbox Scrapbook Walls, light violet solid; Lilybeedesign, lemonade stand; scraps from my stash
Alphas: Freckled Fawn, puffy stickers
Stamp: SU, So you
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Stickers: jillibean soup, saffron yellow pepper soup; Cosmo Cricket, tiny text; Basic Grey, carte postale; AC, Shimelle; Simple Stories, So Rad
Punch: Xcut, circle
Embellishments: Simple Stories, So Rad & Bloom & Grow enamel dots; Becky Higgins PL, wood veneer
