She's A Log Dog
It cannot be denied, my Kiera is a real 'log dog'. Whenever she goes for a walk the first thing she has to do is find a huge branch or small log, or more commonly wrench a piece off from a tree, to carry round with her. She has been known to carry/drag a piece of tree for several miles.
On our walk yesterday, she managed to pull off a rather sizable branch from a tree
which she dragged for most of the way
and then found another smaller but fatter piece of tree
and finally (no photo of this one) a very large and very fat piece of tree. She will run along with these in her mouth and woe betides anyone who gets in her way as you will get a very forceful whack on the back of the legs as she passes! What is it with Retrievers that they always have to have something in their mouths? When she is at home she will always have one of her several teddies, or a bone, or a ball in her mouth constantly - it must just be a dog thing!
As well as going for a walk, yesterday, I managed to make the covers for my LSNED album for this year. Did you know that Echo Park make hybrid versions of their 'A Walk In The Park' and 'Life Is Good' ranges. No, nor did I until I saw them here.
What a bargain, I purchased them, re-sized them, printed them, cut them out and there we have it - beautiful pieces for my cover.
The trees are from this digi kit.
This year my album pages are going to be 6 x 4 digi pages, I have a template that I am going to use for each page and then once they are printed out I may pretty up the pages with some hybrid bits and pieces. My covers are 7 x 5 and I will either put book rings or Bind It All at the top (I will have to peel back a bit of the embellishments if I am going to do this!) I am really getting excited about the class and can't wait.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. It's a bank holiday weekend - 3 days with the main man xxx
2. My babe has turned into a surfer chick and has been body boarding and even managed to get up onto her knees on a proper surf board. I am so pleased she is enjoying herself.
3. My quota of invoices for today have already been typed so after doing a quick Sainsburys shop the day is mine to do as I please.
