Love Always Layout

It's me again! Vera. :) Today I am back to share a layout. Sigh... my first love in paper crafting. Scrapbooking.

I have always love to organize my pictures ever since I was in high school and then found out that I can combine my love of pictures with cute stuff it totally caught my attention and still do. I still scrapbook when I can and even though I love card making,  there's a different joy in scrapbooking. I guess because I feel like I am working with something that so much more personal.

Anyway, enough rambling, here's my layout.

This wasn't an easy layout for me. Over 8 years ago, I lost my puppy, Milo and to this day I still couldn't forgive myself for losing him. I wonder all the time what happened to him and my heart ache every time I think of him. And, even though I have another puppy now, I still think of Milo. I believe every dog you ever own  have a special place in your heart that no other dog can replace.

I keep the layout simple as I really want the pictures and the journaling to be the focus. At first, I want to use the puppy from Puppy Love, but after playing around with the layout, I found that the puppy from "Follow Your Bliss" works better with this layout. I stamped the puppy on top of the sentiment die-cut and color it with copic. And added the hearts from "The Doxie with Moxie".

I am glad that I wrote down my feeling. This is the first time I scrapbook of Milo since I lost him and it's part of the healing process.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend and I really appreciate you stopping by here.
