Cold Nose, Warm Heart

I received a very sad phone call two weeks ago from my son telling me that Daisy, their beloved family pet had died in her sleep.  Matt is the only male in the household and he said everyone was quite upset.  I could even hear the emotion in his voice.  So today I had my husband find these photos that we had taken of Daisy nearly 5 years ago so I could do a memorial page on her for my son's family.  I used this beautiful sketch for National Scrapbooking Day (which is today) posted at The Scraproom Blog and am entering it in their NSD Challenge

They have also teamed up with Scrap Our Stash and I am entering their challenge also.  The challenge was to use something from each of these letters:

S  ~ Sequins, Staples, or Stickers
  T   Tags, Tape, or Transparency
                       A ~ American Crafts, Ampersand(&),or Arrow
           S  ~ Stencil, Stick Pins, or Striped Print
                H Hashtag (#), Heart(s) or Hemp (cord) 

I used stickers. a tag, an arrow, a striped print and hearts....all from my stash.  I love this challenge because I get to looking through my stash and find all kinds of neat things that I forgot I had.  Like that round tag I used on this page...doesn't it look like a dog tag?
Well that is about it for today.  I have been up since early this morning when my husband woke me up and dragged me to the gym to work  So I am beat and think I will hit the sheets.  We are having my in-laws over tomorrow to celebrate Mother's Day.  How are you celebrating?
