Chi Chi Chihuahua

This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges, we are creating scrapbook layouts! (or if you don't scrapbook, you can create any project that features a photo).

I recently visited my brother and sister-in-law and their new puppy, Chi Chi. Now try as I might, I can't possibly describe to you just how small this puppy is! Think smallish guinea pig. That might be the closest I can get to a description. She only weighs 1.9 pounds! And she is A.DOR.ABLE. Like I can't even tell you how much I wanted to bring her home with me but I knew she would have ended up as Leia's toy! (Leia is our 70 lb. lab).

Anyhow, I did remember to take my camera so I could get pictures of this tiny cuteness and I decided that I would create a layout that my brother and sis-in-law could frame and display of their new "baby".

All products are from CTMH except some of the buttons and the heart sticker on the tag. I made the page in an 8 x 10 size so it would fit easily in a standard frame. the layout itself is based on the Ensemble Piece layout in the Imagine book from Close To My Heart (the right hand layout). I just adjusted it to fit my size and used the components that worked for me.

I hope you will play along with us this week over at the challenge blog. And be sure to check out what the other team members, including June's Guest DT, Dawn, have created for this week - awesomeness, I tell ya!

One last thing before I go - the winner of my strawberry jam tags is CELESTE! Celeste, if you see this post, please contact me by email with your mailing address so I can send a little goody package your way! Congrats!

Until next time -

Hey Mary! I am back trying to get caught up with blurfing. The pack out is over...thank goodness...and we sit for 6 weeks until we move. I am ready to be in Alaska!

You were so busy while I was amidst a sea of boxes! My favorites are your colorful friendship card and the card for your daughter and SIL. :)
