Puppy Love Layout

Puppy Love

I am generally a person that likes to have many photos on my pages, but once in awhile you capture a photo that deserves it's own special page. This is one of those photos. Willow hadn't been feeling well and had been sick off and on with a fever for about 10 days. She had been sleeping and trying to get better and her puppy was generally close by. Puddy has always liked Willow, but they weren't always close. Anyway, in recent weeks they have gotten to be better friends and as you can see, it has really grown into a special love. Willow calls Puddy her 'puppy brother' and it is nice to see them loving each other and Puddy taking care of Willow while she gets better.

Pattern: Classic Treat Bags

While cards are a nice gesture to express your sentiments, sometimes you want to give just a little bit more. Perhaps it is a specially made cookie or a few premier type chocolates. On those occasions a card is not quite the right presentation. What you need is a creative way to disguise that treat. A custom made treat bag is the perfect solution. This month's project pattern is a treat bag with six interchangeable flaps. The flap elements are in a classic style and will work for any occasion depending on the paper you choose. The treat bag will fit the small portion size zipper bags found at Walmart or any clear bag that is 3.5" wide.
