Little Sweetie

I just want to clarify one thing--no animals were hurt in the production of this scrapbook page. Except for her pride, of course. These photos are of my little chiweenie, Keigan, last Valentine's Day. I was searching for some way to photograph her that would be cute and original, and instead I came up with this. I cut a little X into a cardstock Valentine and pushed her head through. You could see the delight in her face at being my canine Valentine. The look of adoration in her eyes, however, is for the biscuit I was holding in my hand. She's ALL about the biscuits. I think she'd wear an "I Love Cats and I'm Not Afraid to Show It" T-shirt for a biscuit. Before I got a dog, I chuckled at people who dressed their dogs up in costumes and told myself, "I'll never be one of THEM." And when I did, people looked at me and pointed because I was talking to myself. But then I got Keigan and one thing led to another and now she has a closet full of clothes and matching accessories. Not really, but it makes a better story. She DOES, however, have a Christmas dress, and has been a pumpkin, a cheerleader and a witch for Halloween. I'm still trying to work out how to get her into a low cut black silk dress with pumps, though. Maybe I'll have that worked out by the time prom rolls around. She's sort of hoping to be invited by the Schnauzer across the street. But back to the layout at hand--this is all REALLY old stuff I used in here. I mean, there's KI Memories paper in here! I'm planning on using lots of stuff from my stash in the near future. World look out--here comes my STASH.

**LOVE** this!!! :D I can so relate! I love dressing up my dogs, but my husband thinks it's terrible ... especially since they're big, boy dogs. They do have several costumes (a pimp, convict, chariot, bumblebee), some OU jerseys, and several scarves. My favorite though, was when I put bow-ties on them for our Christmas photo a few years ago. Nothing says class like dogs in bow-ties, right?!?! LOL :) Love the layout too!

So cute! My husband has "forbid" me from dressing up our future pup. We shall see about that!

Jingle said...

Bring on the stash!! A lot of folks (me included) are working on using up stash this year. I'm not quite committed to NOT buying more like others are though. Your Keigan is such a sweetie and looks quite darling in her heart. I had to laugh that her look of adoration is for the biscuit. Doesn't that just figure. I try to kid myself that my cats are pleased that I am home after work all day but really they just want the food bowls filled.

What a little sweetie..... I don't think they mind too much if people dress them up every so often... they're usually just happy to play...

Have you seen Daisy's blog. She is a Rex cat...and she DOES have a closet full of clothes, hats and jewellery.... she models for treats... and her adopted 'brother' Harley ... is learning to model too... their blog is always fun...

Aww...too cute! I don't have a dog, but I already know if I had one, I would TOTALLY dress him/her up! This is a cute LO, and just wanted to tell ya that Keigan is in the running to be America's Next Top Spokespup!

That is adorable! We put a sweater on my dog when it is cold, and my dad doesn't even like that, but Ben is cold, he needs his jacket! I love your layout!
