Spoilt Rotten

The new challenge has just gone up at A True Friend - and this weeks is perfect for Martha! The journalling on the page is all about her huge array of toys. She's only 7 months and has over 35!!

This week we have a fantastic guest designer!! It's one of my favourite designers, Martha Bonneau - Not only does she create wonderful art and have gorgeous pugs, she's got a pretty wicked name as well!
Spent another day at work creating Christmas projects for the September/October Goody Bag - I'm 'so over' Christmas already! It seems so weird making Christmas cards in such gorgeous weather!

I've had a rather stressful coule of weeks so apologies for not updating - it's only now I'm feeling able to write this all down. On the 4th July Lola was scheduled for her second TPLO operation for her cruciate injury - after a very long and stressful wait we received the news that all had gone to plan. However during the long wait Chloe became rather poorly and in the evening we had to let her go. It all just seemed so difficult, particularly as we were also waiting to hear Lola had come round from her anaesetic. Chloe was such a lovely dog and we'll miss her so much. It seems so fitting now that it was the week she was proudly peeking out from my page on the Mojo Blog! I think she would have appreciated going out on that high!

Lola's initial recovery has been rather stressful too. This time she had a lot of swelling and fluid which of course has to drain (sorry to be graphic!) and only now has it stopped - she's also needed to be watched 24/7! She didn't really help herself either by extracting some of the staples from the wound! Now we start the long road to recovery - fingers crossed that it all goes smoothly from here on in!

On happier news the new challenge is up at A True Friend - This time the challenge was to scrap 'The Face I Love". An easy challenge for me as I adore taking portrait shots of my girls! I've chosen to 'do' Martha with her silly floppy jowls and huge hairy ears that she still needs to grow into!

There are some fantastic pages as always by the rest of the Design Team - I especially love Debbies gorgeous ratty page! Brings back great memories of Ratties in my past!
