Hello friends! I have a new layout to share with you today using the Wreathed in Love Cut File from The Cut Shoppe. The layout originally went up on the Blog on Mother’s Day so I thought it was fitting to create a layout all about my mom!
I started in Cricut Design Space by slicing apart the bottom portion of the cut file. I duplicated the images, flipped them vertically and then welded the images together to create a frame. [I have a step by step tutorial in my YouTube Process Video at the bottom of this post.]
My photos on the layout were taken the day we adopted our two dogs from a local animal shelter. Our family started with 3 Shih Tzus (Cooper, Bohde & Lucy). Two of our Shih Tzus, Lucy & Bohde, died very suddenly within 3 months of each other due to illnesses they just couldn’t overcome because of their old age. Our dogs are our family and we were absolutely devastated when they passed away.
I follow a couple of the local animal shelters on Facebook and had seen a photo of a pair of liter mates, Liam & Neeson, that were up for adoption. We saw them before Lucy passed away and the timing wasn’t right for us to adopt them. Then they were adopted. We were so happy that they were adopted together because we know how liter mates are bonded (Cooper & Bohde were liter mates). After Lucy passed away I was on Facebook and saw Liam & Neeson again. It turned out that they were returned to the shelter because the owner had received a job promotion and it would require traveling. I contacted the shelter and we went for a visit. Our application was approved the same day, and we ended up bringing Liam & Neeson home the same day as our visit. We kept the name Liam but changed Neeson’s name to Keith. The photos with us are called “Happy Tail” photos and were taken a the shelter. It most definitely was a happy day!
Now you can take a look at my YouTube Process Video!
