Hello dear friends!! I’m so excited to announced that we have a new baby boy that will be headed our way very soon. This layout features his first photos taken when he was 6 weeks old. The photo at the bottom left is not very good, but is the only one I received showing his full little body. Here’s CHARLIE!!!!
I’ve been searching for Charlie for a very long time after losing the last of my 3 little dachshunds last year. She was 14 years old. The house has been very quiet. This is Charlie’s official birth announcement, and he is my retirement puppy. I am retiring tomorrow with 39 1/2 years of government experience, and Charlie is coming to be my forever puppy on July 16. Hubby is flying to Portland, Oregon to pick him up, which is why I used this adorable paper collection with the sweet little airplanes on it and the Tim Holtz Mail Rub On’s.
I love CE’s adorable Leash Frame which I painted red. I used in as a foundation for the layout and to ground all the photos. It is such a perfect piece of chipboard.
After creating all the sweet flower clusters around the photos. I used the Paw Prints to prance across Charlie’s birth announcement. Pretty cute huh. I just rubbed the prints in Archival ink to make them black. There are really cute hearts in the center of the paws.
Of course, I had to title this CAS layout Baby Boy which comes in the Baby Word Set. I painted it with metallic blue acrylic paint.
Here’s more close-ups
And finally here is Charlie’s announcement
Thank you so much for stopping by. I sure enjoyed our visit. Next time, I will be playing all the time!!! Till then here’s a Big Alaska Bear Hug!!!
