Scrapping Everyday Miracles... challenge

Here's the story...

I have a son... very obedient, loving and sweet.  Everybody loves him, everybody wants to be with him.  Since he was little, he's been a great student.  He has won lots of awards.  He's been in the newspaper, magazines, TV, and several stages around the island.  He's special.
He has several conditions and has been under a lot of medicines during his life, but he's always happy, positive, and ready to do whatever is next.
He enjoys nature, he loves to kiss and be kissed back.  He's now volunteering to be a therapy helper in hospitals and institutions where there are people who needs some love.

I sound like any very proud mom...The thing is, I'm talking about my dog.

The Scrapbooking Everyday Challenge, called All Things have become NEW, is to make a layout about something new in my life... using at least one old and one new element in the page.

The new thing is that I visited a children's hospital with my dog recently and our dog is being evaluated to be a therapy dog, and we (my husband and I) are being evaluated to be certified as Therapy Dogs managers.  It's something that brings a nice feeling but I am experiencing new activities as part of the process.

So here's the layout.




I have several old things here...  The background paper with little squares, as well as the paper used for the journaling is from a Basic Grey collection of dogs and cats... it must have at least 3 years old.   The chipboard words/phrases in the journaling are from a K&Co kit I bought when I started to do scrapbooking in 2007.  The black and white stripe paper is from a b&w collection a friend gave me about 2 years ago.


But these letters.... specially these letters... are from a patterned paper I remember I bought in 2007 or maybe 2008 in local store sale.  The paper was 25 cents!!!!

Well... and then the new thing is this glitter from a kit I bought recently at TJ Maxx and since then I've been using it like crazy...


Here's a closer look to the journaling.


Hope you liked it.  You don't have to leave a comment, but I sure enjoy them.

Good luck in your quest. I have seen therapy dogs in action and they are truly a blessing, as are those who take the time to be with them.

Thank you for playing with us at SEM

This is such a fabulous venture. One of our daughters got her Therapy dog certification for her first dog and took her to one of our local elementary schools for a reading program for challenged learners. What a great experience for them both!! The children would practice reading stories all week so they could read them to Ellie (the dog) when she visited. You and your dog will be a great blessing to those you visit!! Thanks for truly embracing this month's SEM challenge with your wonderful story and fabulous page!! Thanks for joining the Scrapping Everyday Miracles May Challenge ~ All Things Have Become New. ~ Blessings, Tracey
