Like a true nature's child... we were born, born to be wild.... Elsie and Annie: my little rock stars!

Thanks to Aunt Cheryl for our oh-so-cool new shirts!
This is the first time Annie has worn a shirt. She wouldn 't walk! I had to carry her out and put her on the chair. Below is a video of her attempting to walk. She will be 12 weeks old on 10/28/2010.

Spooky Fun Halloween Scrapbook 6" x 12"

Above is the cover with the next few pics being the inside layouts. Photos will be attached here and there. This is a gift for a friend who hosts yearly halloween parties. I hope to get some pics in here before I give it to her. I want some pics of her as a youngster all dressed up and ready to go trick-or-treating. :)
I have no idea why some pics are right-side-up and others are sideways. I've deleted and re-uploaded twice and am not gonna spend (waste!) any more time on this post! You get the idea, dontcha?

Back cover.

A few more shots of the TCDITW and TCPITW

Craft day with GREAT greyhound rescue - SKI NUTS!

Many stages of Ski-Nuts
My Gam and I used to make these ski nuts tree ornaments for her to sell at Perfect North Slopes. Grandad would crack the walnuts and pick out the meat for us and glue the halves back together.

This year I decided to make a group for the greyhound group to use for their gift wrapping benefit at Barnes and Nobles.

Liz helped me crack and pick the walnut meat out of the shells. (I made brownies with the nuts.)

You need toothpicks for the ski poles, pop sticks for skis, and of course acorns for the heads.
They are labor intensive but oh-so-cute.

Welcome Home committee

When I have to leave the house, I put the crate in the doorway of my bedroom. The dogs have the run of that room and can see out. This is how they look when I return home. They also like to sleep in the crate throughout the day.

Annie's First Yappy Happy Hour, Dubliner, Tampa, 10.10.2010

The both barely fit in the Dog In a Box. I guess I need a bigger box. (said in my best taco bell dog voice)
Elsie smiling. She was a total grump when she first came out of the box. Tight quarters.

This was a GREAT greyhound benefit. The hounds were lined up and ready for petting.

Elsie was a ham! Well, Elsie IS a ham.
Melinda and Kelly. Annie's feet didn't touch the ground. Imagine that.

Size perspective.

Many Mini Cards

Various sentiments, some blank inside. I have had a lot of fun making these 3"x3" cards.
