Keep alert for blog candy along the way as some hop stops will be offering some goodies...
                                For the hop today, I've created .......

I didn't need too much inspiration to create this double page l/o of my sweet 12 year old Maltese/Bichon, D.J. . He was NOT impressed with me hanging his "MY RUFF LIFE" l/o  over his neck to take a photo. I chose Karen Foster Design Dog Kit paper since he LOVES his dog bones and this page is covered in them. I hope the close ups, help you to see the captions that I printed right onto the dog bones which came off of the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. Once again, I used MYCUTSEARCH.COM to help me find these cute bones. I'm not sure what I would do without that great website. The "MY RUFF LIFE" were cut from the Plantin  Schoolbook cartridge and mounted on cream paper from DCWV.
We have had D.J. since he was a puppy @ 8 weeks old and he has been healthy up until last Dec. when he gave us the scare of our lives in the middle of the night, not being able to breathe. He had ruptured a heart valve & is now on Heart meds, Lasix etc and doing great, although much quieter than he ever was.

For all you doggie lovers out there, I have TREATS and you don't have to BEG for them!!!

  1. Your layout is nothing short of cute and sweet! And your DJ is one handsome dude! I love how you used the bones for journaling!! Great idea!
    You can read about my dogs as you hop along because I have joined you in this venture..:)

  2. I just LOVE your title!! The little dog collar is cute too. I really like your music today!!!!

    I follow you already!! Love your work!

  3. i love your layout and your dog... I havae 3 cats and 2 maltese... brother and sister... they do everything together... when i take them out to do their thing she even pottys like him.. she half squats and lifts her leg.... quite the balancing act lol :) lindaplusthree at yahoo dot com

  4. Love your layout! We are big dog fans here but we had to adjust when after several years of not having a dog, my son moved back home with his two. His boxer Kyera is a big handful and they both love to pester me whenever I try to scrap. They are just like two kids that misbehave when they arent getting enough attention! Love them dearly though.

  5. Ok, I think I want a dog now - DJ is just darling, we should introduce him and Ty together - she loves dogs! Great job on the layout and thank you for joining the hop!

  6. Adorable layout. We have 4 dogs and all of them are special to us. We each have our "own" dog and my little ones name is Cookie. My kids are now 18, and 21 and Cookie has filled that mothering spot that was craving a new baby. She is extremely comforting to me in this new transition of my life.

  7. I love it, and its such the truth pets always have such a rough life!!! :)

  8. First off, I love that song "How Much Is That Doggie In the Window" and haven't heard it in years. My parents were older when they had me so I got to grow up listening to old songs like this being sung by my grandparents. Second, your doggie is adorable and you can tell life is so RUFF for him. lol Jearise in Lorby's world

  9. Adorable DJ & Adorable Layout. We had a puppy named, Draco. He got sick with a common heart disease for Boxers, and he passed away. But he was a huge part of our lives for a short while. We keep his ashes in a beautiful carved boxed with an 8"x10" framed picture of him in our den. I know that may sound weird, but we still love him even though he's not with us anymore. And our special needs daughter loves to kiss his photo now and then. Thank you for sharing DJ with us. What a cutie! Loved all the pictures and dog bones. :) Janis

    Stopping by to say hi from


  23. Thi is so cute! I will have to utilize this in a book I am making for my daughter. Our dog is our "grand-dog". My daughter was given him but he was just too active for apartment living. So he resides with us after her having him for about a year. He is quite a snuggler. I love the sign around your puppy's neck. Super title.

  24. I have 2 doge and i love them both because they are lovers!

  25. What a fun layout. I can't believe your little guy sat there long enough for you to take the picture. I have a White Pom who would have tried to eat it or tear it a part. He's my little cuddle budy and my little wiggle butt. There's just something so calming having a little furry friend.

  26. Your 2 page layout is wonderful, love the dog biscuit bone journaling. great pics. lvoe the title too. Thank you for sharing and a chance to win. Im a new follower. I have a Collie, they are wonderful, loyal, and friendly dogs. They are always so happy to see you after a long day, and can always make you feel better with that wgging tail.
