In Loving Memory of Dejeah....

It took me a few days to muster up this post, I finished a tribute layout for her last night.  I miss her, she was like a child, I've had her since she was 5 wks old and she had to be put to sleep last Sunday and the ripe old age of 15.  It was the hardest think ever, I know she was in pain and I know this was the best for her but for my own selfish reasons I didn't want to let her go.  I mean I have had her longer than my son has been alive (he's 11).  I miss her so much and I have thought about her everyday since, I'm sure there are those that are like she's a dog, get over it but to me she was more.  She was a family member, she was a companion.

My husband has teased for a long time that she "puts on" for me.  Some times she would limp for no reason and I would baby her but that was just how it was.  She liked to get to him, she would purposely just look at him instead of getting up, almost like she was pretending to not hear him, even though she was pretty close to being deaf she could hear and she knew what you wanted her to do she just didn't feel like doing it. 

I'm going to miss her kicking her bowl around in her crate as if to say she didn't want any more and she wanted more laying down room, lol.  

I'm going to miss her yapping self when she was playing, the way she would tuck her tail and run laps around the furniture as if I was really going to chase her.

I'm going to miss how she loved to just rest her head of my shoulder while I stroked her back...

I'm going to miss so much about her, but I know she lived a long time, she was well taken care of and I'm sure she's here with me in spirit.

Here the layout I did of one of my most recent favorite picture I have of her...



And here are a few random pictures I had on hand of her....










This was one of the funniest pictures I have of my dogs....

Circle Hearts Layout & 2 Free Silhouette Shape

I shared a couple of shapes I made with a few people and I keep getting requests for them so I figured I would post a quick layout using one of the shapes and then just post a link there to download them to make it easier on myself.

I made this layout last night of my nephew and I using the circles with hearts background.  I cut off three random circles and placed them on the top and bottom of the page.  I also used some of the colorful tape I picked up at Target, it's thicker than a lot of washi tape but it still tears easily BUT it does no come off as easy it will tear your paper.  It's just not as easy to reposition as real washi tape.

Sorry but I took these with my iPhone, my area is such a disaster I didn't want to fool with getting my 7d out and taking the picture and editing it, needless to say I was being lazy.  

Below you will find the links to download the free shapes.  The star one looks exactly like this only instead of hearts the circles are filled with stars.  I hope you enjoy....  I would love to see what you do with this, so please feel free to link back to this or email me and I can update this post with a link to your page.
