Challenge 29

Journalling for the above layout

These have always been your favourite ‘teddies’. I bought the little brown dog before you were even born, cos I just loved it – so did you! You only got the Dalmatian puppy much later on when you were about 8. You still have the Dalmatian – Spot, but we can’t find your little brown dog. We have moved a few times so I am still hoping he turns up.
This week's challenge is brought to you by Joanne Rasmussen.
A little about her, in her own words...
I have been scrapbooking for about 6 years although I feel I only reallystarted documenting my life and the lifes of my loved ones in the last fewyears. I feel a layout is incomplete without some journaling and 'cherish,love, beauty' do not count. I often look through my old layouts and feelthey are nothing more than pretty pages that tell me/you nothing.
My style - I am not really sure how to describe my style other than quiteneat! I would love to break out a little but find it hard to do. Watch thisspace I intended to do it soon.
I find inspiration in any scrapbooking magazine or idea book even though Ivery rarely scraplift an entire layout. As far as inspiring scrapbookers,Ali Edwards and Donna Downey are probably my favourites, with a little bitof grunge throw in for good measure by Kristina Contes.
I am a total blogging junkie! I visit numerous sites daily, quite a mixedbag though, photography blogs, scrapbooking girls, and just SAHM mainly. Ilove to pop into Creating Keepsakes once a week to check on the POTD choicesof Erin Lincolns as well which keeps me on top of what is hot and happeninin scrapbooking generally. I do admit to following the trends even though Idon't spend much money on scrapbooking as I have enough stash to keep me going forever.

This is an awesome challenge, Joanne, and your page is fabulous! Of course the ribbon detail is a real attention getter ... I'm sure you knew that when you were working on it. But, the heart of this page is your story and the picture of the Little Brown Dog.

I can picture him sitting in a dark box somewhere .. a tiny bit scared ... but confident that his 'kid' will come back to get him. ugh. I've been watching waaaay too much Toy Story lately. hehehehe

Great challenge, great page ... and congrats to Stephanie for doing such an incredible job on the website! It's really improved and the inspiration is all over every page!

Keep 'em coming!
