Heart 2 Heart Challenge

I have had this pictures pulled out for a couple weeks waiting for some inspiration to strike. Today was the day. I just received the Elemental WOTG kit and the challenge happens to be to use a stamp you haven't used yet. If you haven't checked out the Heart 2 Heart blog, you should.

I used Elemental papers and WOTG stamp set. The title was cut with the AP Cartridge. The letters look like a different font because I adjusted the Height and Width to fit in the space. Love how this changes the look of things! The red border accent is from the Rock The Block set.

These pictures take me back to when Cricket was a happy healthy dog, sadly we had to put her down this past summer. The picture below literally breaks my heart. This was the morning we took her in. She had lost 20 lbs. and was going downhill fast. It was one of the toughest decisions we have had to make, but we really didn't want her to suffer. Tyler was such a champ and went with me to the vet. Here is her last stroll around the yard. We sure miss the old girl, she will hold a special place in our hearts forever.
