I decided just last week to make a quick visit to see my kids in NY and I wanted to make a quick couple of pages for my dear friend Patti who lives in Minnesota and as I am a very slow scrapper I used a couple of sketches to help hurry things along. Patti and I are kindered spirits through our mutual love of Golden Retrievers. She takes the most awesome photos of her two, Finn & Teddy, although I'm sure it helps that they are so photogenic.
For my first layout I used the sketch from the August challenge at Stuck?!Sketches
I have used papers from Kaisercraft and Maja Design and the chippie is from Scrapmatts.
