When my Mom and Dad's beloved dog (Mickey) passed away after 10 years...they were completely devastated. To help ease their pain a little...I decided to take some pictures I had snapped of Mickey...and make a mini scrapbook album for them.

Since we have so many animal lovers residing in Pervia...I thought I would post a link to this album so you peeps could see an example of some of the work I do as an artist.

Thank goodness I'm getting better about scanning and photographing my work before it leaves my studio to go live permanently at a customer's house. It definitely helps grow my portfolio...and also enables me to share my art with others.

And although I get paid for some of my work...the gifts I make for loved ones remain my favorite pieces to this day…simply because I seem to give a bit of myself away with their creation.

This is one of those particular pieces. I hope you enjoy it…just as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thanks everyone. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

It this what is called 'scrapbooking'?

Yes Softie...this is traditional scrapbooking. It took me about 5 hours to cut, adhere, stamp, resize pictures, and place all the stickers and embellishments within it. I also had to bind the book and type out and resize all the dog sayings and captions...along with perform some hand lettering and ribbon and string tying in specific areas. It's all very time consuming...but very much a keepsake when it's all said and done. Since I only use acid free products...you could feasibly hand the album down for many generations. If you're family or a good friend...you get something like this from me every 2 or 3 years.

The popular type of scrapbooking right now is digital scrapbooking. Most photo labs have this option available when you come in to have pictures made. You can do it from home as well (my preference) and it's quite easy to click and drag your pictures into the appropriate spaces. When you're done...you wait a week and ta da...you have a sleek picture book of all your cherished memories.

was she pure bred sheltie?

Yes she was...100%.

I'm so glad that everyone is enjoying the album so much. I guess I'll have to post some more pictures of my work when I get a chance.

I am sure that they loved it. Anything you do personally is almost always a better gift than something purchased.
