A dogs life-- for AJJ

A mixed media journal page for 
Collage with journalling.

It is 14 years ago this month when this grand old lady entered our home.
She has given us years of unconditional love and companionship and still
enjoys her toys and treats, although like me and my OH she isn't so nippy on her feet these days.

This is how the page began, water coloured  base, some random stamped images,
.The dog was fussy cut from the front of a free Waitrose weekly supermarket magazize.
Meg can often give us that, ''who me'',  look.

The photos I added to the digital page were taken today, when Meg was playing with her beloved ball.
I kid you not, if the smoke alarm goes off when we are cooking,  its the first thing she runs to find and save.
Then comes to warn  us,  barking,  with it in her mouth.
The added digital items were from my stored found free to used images and Mischief Circus kits.

Meg and I thank you for calling to see us today.
The comments you leave are always appreciated.


  1. I love how you have combined your images with the lovely Christmas surroundings! Love the stories of Meg too! Hugs, Chrisx

  2. Being a dog lover, I think this is fabulous. I hope Meg gets her biscuits and her new fuzzy duck, and I hope that you get a few more holidays with her. Santa of course is a dog lover as we all know.

  3. So true Yvonne, this is a Great choice of colours and papers in this fabulous design. x
