Dog Soup

Hip Hop! :) Hope you are all enjoying the blog hop so far! I so love all of the fabulous eye candy! First up for me a little snippet about the Store More Stamps by Little Monkeys storage system. Wowzers! I LOVE this system! Although I haven't done anything fancy with my system...yet!....I have mine sitting on my desk and it's wonderful. I use this for all of my upcoming projects. I put my stamps that I am working with in the sleeves and they are right on my desk at the ready. This system ROCKS! :)

Next up...my project for today. I created a little mini book to share with you. I used a couple of last weeks releases from Unity for this one. I'm using Rain and Flowers and Numbers, etc. for this one.

I used an acrylic 6X6 Bind-it-All book kit for this but instead of using my machine and rings I opted to use my crop-a-dile and a couple of book rings.....
I paper pieced the umbrella and then went over the top with Crystal Effects. The paper is Cosmo Cricket. The ribbon is PTI. The little guy is my youngest picking flowers on the deck. It was a beautiful day and we were all just hanging out.
Here's a look at the first page with the book open....
Next up...Hayden adding the flowers to the dog bowl......
.....and of course a little milk...........
...then you have to mix it up....with your feet of course......
...look at Daisy...hmmm....she doesn't look convinced......
....so why not TASTE TEST! AH! Holy smokes!.......
Yeah, mother of the year! ...and look at his face when he realizes I was watching!.....
...the little stinker! ;)
So...April showers bring dog soup at the Buck house!......
I don't normally let my kid drink out of the dog bowl but I will share that during the summer....at least last summer....it was a constant battle to keep him out of it! He LOVES messing with it. I think I have a future chef on my hands! ;)
Now head on over to Patter Cross for the rest of the hop. I will see you all in the forum! :)
HIP HOP! :)

this made me smile and laugh and get teary all at the same time!
My youngest daughter is getting married in 8 short weeks and these pictures brought back such great memories of her and her sister when they were that age.(they were only 14 months apart!)
Enjoy him, it goes way to quick!
