It happens to be a super cold, windy, and gloomy day. I had to use this super happy yellow paper I designed… and it definitely brightened up my day. I’m so easily impressionable! A beautiful memory of my little Vash came to mind – all smiles. Yes, I am obsessed with my furbaby.

I used some pretty patterned paper to create the pinwheel embellishment…then the final remaining strips I incorporated into the journaling block… literally no waste of that patterned paper. Otherwise, it’s a pretty simple layout and I sort of messed up the alignment, oh well! I suppose my style is clean, but with some organic touches…like the crazy sewing. In my mind, it looked much neater, but I went out of control in reality. Note to self, sew slower!

The marathon scrapbooking with LOAD this month is definitely helping me to learn what I like to use in my pages and how satisfying the process can be, even without a whole lot of stuff on the page. At least for me. I suppose there’s no time to second guess or fuss too much. I’m a huge fan of little stickers, banners, and tags as well – I know it’s the trend these days. They add just a little something to satisfy my decorative tendencies, but not too much because I tend to not like those pages in the past that have loads of eye candy. I will have to take note to design my own little tidbits to scrap with…

The journaling reads:

Vash has always been a great traveler in the car, no problems since the day we brought him home. He has now associated the car with adventure and regularly runs up to the door and hops in immediately. We often have to tell him to get out, because we want to go for a walk, not a ride! I really love this photo because I caught his expression in the side view mirror. What a cutie. It makes me think of vacation, fun times, and rollin’ with my homies…
