I am back with a layout that I made for today's challenge at Sketch N Scrap's - Sizzlin' Summer Crop. I got to pick the sketch for this challenge - which is always fun! Here is the sketch that I picked:
I have used Echo Park's - Summer Dreams - collection for my layout. The pretty, summery colors were perfect for these photos of Ada and the neighbor's dog. There are so many funny stories that I have to tell about this little dog...I know she will be getting a layout all about her - and she isn't even our dog!
Long story short - she lived across the road from us for many years. We didn't even know her name, but Scott thought he had heard her owner call her Trixie, or Dixie, or Pixie, so we just called her "Ixie" - and she would come to us whenever we called her that! We always said that she was Willie's girlfriend because she would come over and they would play all the time. She could run circles around Willie and they truly were the best of friends. Early this year, one of her owners passed away and "Ixie" pretty much lived at our house. She was here from the time we got up and didn't go home until it was dark. Early summer her owner sold her house and moved. When her daughter came to get "Ixie" to take her home we found out her name was really Daisy! I don't know where Scott heard anything close to "Ixie", but to us that is all she will ever be!
Okay, so that wasn't really a short story, but now you know why I think she needs a layout in our album! She was always so good with Ada and loved any kind of "loves" that she could get!
Be sure to check out the Sizzlin Summer Crop. You have until August 2nd to play along with us, and remember, you have to join the crop in order to be eligible for the prize.
