WARNING... LENGTHY POST AHEAD... :-)
What inspires you? I struggle with this. I started scrapbooking 9 years ago. Let me tell you it was tough! Not that I had problems with putting colors, patterns and designs together... but I struggled with subjects. I always felt awkward at crops or other functions while everyone gushed about their children. I would pull out my stash of photos and try to put something together.
I came to the hobby without the usual background. You see, I didn't have children to journal about. And unfortunately I knew that would never happen. So while others documented the lives of their little ones, I recorded memories about trips and my beloved animals. They gave me something to journal about. My Saints became favorite subjects. And as many people well know, they became like children to me. To this day, I consider my fluffers my babies. My family has grown as I have been blessed with step children and step grandchildren. But my pups retain a special corner in my heart. They kinda make me all warm and fuzzy... like this card. I hope you enjoy today's project. At the end I included some Mama fluffer brag photos...
