Party Animals

There is nothing "The Boys" like more than a birthday party and I have commemorated some of them by scrapbooking the photos. The first two page layout shows Higgins' 1st birthday party. I love the picture where he is looking worried as Sid takes a crafty bite of his cake. I always send the rescue centre an update and photos at Christmas so this one was an obvious choice to send.

I also scrapped Archie's fourth birthday photos. He often sleeps with his paws over his eyes so I am glad I managed to capture a picture of him like that. This photo always makes me smile.
On the cross stitch front I have managed to finish Village Lane by Heritage. I consider myself quite a fast stitcher but all those greens really slowed me down. I think it took about a month altogether although I have done some smaller projects in between.

  4. Shirley, you did a super job on the dogs birthday pages. The photo of Archie sleeping with his paws over his eyes is just darling. What are the birthday cakes made of?
