Sweet and sad.....

Its not often that I scrap about my pets I do take lots of piccies but never seemed to get around to scrapping them...since Kloe died Ive decided to make a conscious effort to though. They are an important part of my life too and deserve to be scrapped along with the rest of the family :)

My sweet Jack -the title describes my boy to a tee :) Since Kloe died he has become my dog follows me everywhere and wont listen to a word Al says lol much to Al's dismay lol Kloe was always the one who ignored him and it drove him nuts lol I based this LO on a blind scrap from the fabulous Karen Grose and I love how it turned out :D I used the budget boy kit from Wicked Princesses and its on sale now for just $12.00 :D


and this one was sad and hard to scrap......I got every single photo I ever took of my girl printed the other week and at first I couldnt even look at them without bursting into tears,then I loved looking at them and remembering when they where taken and the things she did and didnt cry anymore. I was showing my friend Ali (fellow JR owner and very spunky lady) and we where sharing our Jack Russell stories and photos at the retreat and it made me think I was ready to start scrapping some of Kloes photos so I decided on Sunday night to use some for this weeks sketch at Wicked....at first I was ok then the inevitable happened, I sooked like a baby and wanted to pack it up and go to bed I was such a mess but thought "nope she cant be forgotten and I wont allow her to ever be" so through teary eyes,half a box of tissues and a very heavy heart I scrapped this layout about my beloved girl..........

I wanted to journal about her but that was pushing it I think......next time I will :)

I better go before I start sooking again......hug your furry friends tonight and give them an extra one from me :)

It's beautiful hun. I can only imagine how hard it would be. I have lots of plans to scrap my cats but haven't gotten around to it yet. Your experience is a reminder of how important this is for anyone with a 4 legged family member. -super hugs- xo
