SEM Sketch Challenge

Here I am again...  Did I wish you Happy Thanksgiving?  Yes...  Happy Thanksgiving!  Hope you are having a wonderful day.

I wanted to share with you a layout I made with a sketch provided by SEM for their sketch challenge going on.  I though it was very inspiring.  Love it.

I made the page about my dog Malbec (yes, it's a name of a grape too).  He is 5 years old and is a big heavy Rottweiler with such a nice personality.  He's kind, obedient, lovable, tender, and I love him so much... like he was my own son.

Sometimes, when I am watching TV or sit at the family room, he places his face in my lap, and all you see is this tender look in his "not so little" face... that you could melt...  like in this photo I chose for the layout.

I used the number 5 because in my journaling I explain about him still being tender and lovable at age 5, like he was when he was a little puppy.  (Actually, I think he believes he is a puppy.). 

The title was handwrote and then cut and placed with 3D dots.

And here's my take on the sketch...   I also used some little circled photos of Malbec being a puppy, as part of the circle elements from the sketch.  Can you see them?

Hope you liked it.  Thanks for your comments.
