Scrapbook Layouts

Hello Crafty Friends........
Sherri here from Sherri's Crafty Place and today is my day to post here at She's A Sassy Lady, and a few of our friends have asked for more Lay Outs.....so..........
                    
I am posting a LO I made 2 years ago, unfortunately I wasn't sure I was even going to be able to post, I have had a very sad week........
a week ago today I lost my furbabie Brodie...it was just the saddest day, he was 13 and had been sick for only about a month, and we had to make the decision to put him down, it was the hardest thing I have ever had to do....he was the best dog, and just the love of my life, we rescued him when he was 2 from an abusive home, how anyone could have abused this beautiful creature I will never know, but I am so happy to have had him be part of our lives....
here is a picture of my Brodie, he is a Belgian Malinois, R.I.P. buddy, momma loves you......
 oh but wait, it doesn't stop there
 last Monday my dad ended up in the Hospital for 6 days,
he is very sick, he has Multiple Myeloma, he is doing well for now, he was diagnosed over 6 years ago... so everyday I have him here is a gift....
so needless to say, I have not felt very crafty this week.....
So instead I decided to share 2 scrapbook lay out's I did 2 years ago with you....
 This LO I lifted from the Talent Christina from Creations With Christina,
 it is hard to see in the pictures, (if you click on the pictures you can look at them larger and see the hearts)but on the top right hand side of the blue is 4 blue hearts cut from Plantin Schoolbook at 1 inch. I also double matted my pictures and brodie was cut out using jubilee
 I did the same on the brown as I did on the blue and along the bottom of both sheets I cut out 7 more 1 inch hearts, again click on the photos so you can see the brown on brown, it is really pretty in person...and the ribbon is from my stash.....
 here is a picture of the blue hearts on blue paper, 4 hearts are layered in the corner and then 3 along the bottom....( in the picture is my Brodies tongue, he had black spots on his tongue....I just loved his spots....it was so hard to get a picture of his mouth open...LOL
 here is a close up on the brown,
and here is another LO I did of my Brodie, sorry for the glare....
I loved to dress him up....he did not love it as much as I did......
but doesn't he look just too cute!!!! LOL
 boy oh boy can you tell this LO is pre Cricut!!!!!......and one of my first ever scrapbook LO's...thank goodness for Provo Craft, my Expression has really improved my LO's, oh and a little tip Ladies, when I first started scrapping, I bought the cheaper adhesives.....I can tell not a great idea, unless 2 years later you want to re-do those LO's. All the LO's I did before my ATG all let go, I needed to re stick them all......wow what a job......so don't CHEAP out on the adhesives.....
Thank you so much for stopping by today, and letting me share my story, I miss my boy everyday, and this was really helpful for me to talk about my furbabie.......
Have a Scrappy Day everyone.....
Hugs

Sherri, I am so sorry for your loss of your beautiful friend, Brodie! They so quickly become such an integral part of our family and daily lives. However, you've created a wonderful memory in the beautiful layouts you've done.

I pray for you during your healing process, my friend!

I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved pet and friend. We rescued our cat from the humane society. We had him for 12 years and when we had to put him down, I couldn't leave the house for a week. I still tear up and it's been 4 years. You become so attached. It is so difficult. I hope with time you will feel better. He's the reason I began scrapbooking. You did a wonderful job.

I know how you feel. This past Thursday I lost my furbaby Lucky. He wasn't acting like himself and we tryed to call the vet. They were closed and we said we would take him in the next day. We came home from work and Lucky was gone. He was the best puppy you could have asked for. You are in my thoughs and my prayers.
