Love me Love my Dog

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Except for the extreme humidity, I had a great weekend.  My oldest child  Jeffrey,  celebrated his 23rd birthday on Friday. We had the family and friends over on Sunday and celebrated with a cookout.  It was nice to have everyone gather at my home.  

When looking through my mom's old pictures I came across this one of her younger brother, my Uncle Bryce.  He had the most beautiful curly, blonde hair and I adore this picture of him with the family dog. I had been wanting to use the current sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays and when I found this picture, the whole layout came together.
I used paper and trim by Pink Paislee and other embellishments from October Afternoon, Jenni Bowlin and Prima.  I love that the photo I used captures my grandmother's handwriting!

And I agree...its wonderful that your grandmother came up with the title for you page, by writing that on the photo. How awesome is that!! As usual, Debbie, you have gone above and beyond!!! Another stunning layout!
