This is post #2 for today, scroll down for the SOME ODD GIRL BLOG HOP

Woot Woot! 
It's another JUSTWORDZ day..............that meets Fairy Fun Fridays Mid-Week reminder. 
At JUSTWORDZ this week we are concentrating on 'LOVE' & at Fairy Fun Fridays, for 1 more week, our challenge is SNIPS & SNAILS & PUPPY DOG TAILS!! 

Here I have created an 8X8 scrapbook LO for my brother & his family about their dog, Rousseau,  who passed away at the beginning of this year. We had my brother & his family down on September long weekend for a BBQ & Smore roast........ & they got a chance to look at what I had done so far with the scrapbook.  Boy oh boy.....let me tell ya, there were lots and lots of tears when they opened it up!! I felt so bad, but so good at the same time, knowing that this is something that will last a lifetime for them! 
This also reminded me to get my butt in gear & finish this scrapbook before it turns into a 5 yr project. lol

I used an image from Prairie Fairy Designs called Furever Friends. Now I didn't have a picture of my nephews with their dog on a swing or even near a swing, so I put this picture in the LO instead. In the back of the trailer is my daughter & my niece & in the front is my nephew & Rousseau! 
And on the bottom there you see my JUSTWORDZ stamped sentiment that says "because I love you". 

Oh hey, did you notice the tree branches/twigs on the layout. Yup actual branches to give the whole image a true 'swinging' effect! lol 

Challenges for my LO: (to follow)

Love this, Corry! I have never done an 8x8 layout and I thought this was a card at first. I think I'm going to have to try working in this size. The image is adorable and so well-colored. I see you're in a blog hop today too so I'll be hopping as soon as I finish my DT visits!
