Christmas 1974

Welcome to the last stop in this month's blog hop with...
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'

Love is in the air this month, so we wanted to show a little love to a our Fur-Babies.

Here we are in our second month on the last Saturday of the month to inspire you with some wonderful projects. This month's theme is..."Pet's"
So, grab yourself a Latte' and hop along with us while we proudly show off our projects and our Fur-Babies.

Your first stop on the hop will be with...

Robin Lane from Create-A-Latte

For my project today, I created a layout.  I don't currently have any pets as I developed allergies in my 20's.  My children have not forgiven me for that one!!  I found this picture of me and my brothers with our dog Hugo and cat Mittens at Christmas in 1974:
The pets looked thrilled to be in the picture!!!  We had Hugo first and he was such a picky eater.  Then we got Mittens and Hugo ate EVERYTHING including the cat food!!!  Silly dog. 
I created a layout with papers from Lost and Found Christmas from My Mind's Eye.  I cut several pieces to mat my photo.  I used my cameo to cut the clock faces and gears to represent time (past) and added some washi tape to ground everything together.  I cut the title with my cameo as well.

Now, for some candy. This month we will be giving one lucky person two Becky Higgins Project Life Themed Kits, one is the Dogs Kit and the other one is the Cats Kit. For your chance to win this amazing blog candy you must hop through each one of our talented crafters blogs, be sure to leave everyone a little blog lovin', and if you are not already a follower please become one to each of ladies so that you do not miss a single project that they make.
