And, I had to add a close up of the All A Flutter Stamp. It was so perfect for these pictures. I didn’t take it with me, so when I got home, I added it. I stamped it in Staz On on the page and then again on a very vanilla piece. I colored it with blender pens and then cut it out and popped it up a little. It is so pretty! I love this stamp!
On a side note, I had to put my sweet chihuahua Libby down this morning. It was so traumatic. I thought I was prepared, but wow. I cried like a crazy lady. She was our first baby and was 11 years old. She lived a long life and it was time for her to go to Heaven. I think I need to dig out some pictures and scrap a page about her. She was a sweet furry friend that kind of got pushed to the side with the arrival of all our real babies. But, none the less, she will be greatly missed. I think scrapping about her will be wonderful therapy…
