This is a LO of my darling chihuahua who past away last year on October 29, 2006. It was right after I came up from double back surgery and I was bedridden for almost a year and during that time I was not able to move much or get out of my bed. I remember waking up and Buddy was not by my side. I thought he went outside to get some fresh air and then I heard my dh and dd scream bloody murder. I thought my dd or dh got hurt at first but they both came running in and told me that Buddy had been run over by some teenage children in our neighborhood. This one year anniversay has been really difficult because I had this beautiful dog since he was a tiny pup and he could fit inside my jacket pockets and I would take him on trips tucked inside there all the time. He lived 9 years. His 10 year birthday would have been Feb 28, 2006. I laid him to rest underneath my rose garden and made him a cross so I could go talk to him when I am sad and miss him. My dd keeps asking Santa to bring him back to me this year for Christmas or just to bring me a new chihuahua so I can have that love again. She is a beautiful little girl. I wish that as well.
Items I used:
TCS Naturescape Paper - Fresh Air
On my dogs photo - I changed brightness and contrast to 50% and 60% and also colorized it to achieve the blues and golds.
TCS Doggytales Paper-Playtime
TCS Doggytales - Balls - I then cropped out a ball and erased background around ball to round it out instead of it being squared so the lined paper would show better.
TCS Naturescape File Tab green
TCS Naturescape EMB Twintabs1
TCS Raffia embellishments
ABR DaytoDay paper
Brushes - Seedpacket flower1 and flower2, pimpinella --forgot who designer is, sorry.
Fonts: Viner Hand ITC and Times New Roman

I am sorry that I could not save you on this day. If I could have walked without pain or my walker from my surgery, I could have been there to protect you from getting hurt. When BJ and Elizabeth screamed, I just knew. This one year anniversary has been hard for the entire family, especially me. I miss you so much little Buddy! You will always be in my heart!
