    This is a layout I made of the boys saying goodbye to our basset hound, Harold. He was the best dog we have had. Since we were moving to a new condo where dogs were not allowed, we had to give him away. It was a very sad day. In the bottom photo you can see one of the boy's hands as he is waving goodbye.

    oh, what a sad day. But you did a great job of capturing it for them to remember their dear friend. I like the matting you used and the oval pictures also set if off.

    It's a beautiful layout Judy! Your papers go together so well! And I like how you put the title over the pics a little bit. Don't think I've ever done that.

    Great layout. I really like the colors and the plaid mat.

    I can relate. I had to give my dog away. I guess it's been 5 years now. We still hear stories of how he's doing because we gave him to someone we know.

    OMG this is so sad! A beautiful layout for such a sad occasion. I give you credit I could never give up one of my fur babies. But sometimes in life we have to sacrifice what we love for the better of all. I hope Harold got a good home.

    Great lo! It is simple, but not plain. The colors are great, and I really like the way you edged the journal tags.

    A sad day, but it nice that you scrapbooked it.
    Was your way of saying goodbye?

    This was such a traumatic move for us that I felt it was important to document Harold's leaving. Since I was not 'in to' taking photos, at the time, I am surprised that I did this. Now that I am scrapbooking, this set of photos is precious to me...and the kids.

    Thanks to all of you who have looked at my layouts and have shared such nice things. I appreciated it very much!

    Judy, that's a great lo. I'll bet the boys will miss Harold. I still miss our little dog who died of cancer a few yrs ago. You get so attached to your little fur babies.
