getting a puppy today and a Nook layout- oh and another CHA picture

I grew up with lots of different pets- a hamster, birds, fish, cats, a rabbit- granted not all at the same time but it was a ZOO at our house. We've talked for quite a while about whether or not to get a pet, what to get and when. About a month ago I had this conversation with my girls and these were some of their ideas- fish, a guinea pig, a dinosaur, a pig, a bunny.

While I don't think we'll be getting a dinosaur any time soon we ARE getting a puppy! The girls are so excited- we went the other day to buy food, a little bed, a crate, toys and lots of other things including a how-to book since we know nothing about having a dog. I am a little nervous today as we get ready to go pick her up, but who could resist this face?

We've gone back and forth, too, on what to name her. A dog, just like a person, needs a good name that fits them, and choosing a name for this puppy wasn't much easier than it was when we were choosing names for our girls. I think we've settled on Bella- isn't that a cute name for her? We think so. 

I'll have to keep you updated...tonight is sure to be a long one since they say having a puppy is like having a new baby. I hope we all survive. 

Now for some scrappy stuff...

As I've showed you in previous posts, the August kit from My Scrapbook Nook features the lovely Indie Girl collection (brand new!) from Sassafras. It's gorgeous and I am so glad that we got it for our kit. I had some to play night before last and here is one of the pages that I created:

The kit also includes some cute buttons, flowers from Bo Bunny, pins from Jenni Bowlin, and these cute paper doily trims from Basic Grey. I used the backing of a couple of doilies for masking on the background before adhering them to my page. 

I hope you have a wonderful day and great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. I was just looking at the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog and they had some pictures of the Jillibean Soup booth at CHA. If you look closely you will see two of my projects-a  Boo! card and tag at the top right side of the board. Even though I wasn't able to be there it's fun to have a part in CHA.

Beautiful LO! Love all the misting. And your dog is so adorable - congrats! Love the name. I also grew up with all sorts of pets (bunnies, hamsters, mice, turtles, fish, birds, chicken, etc....and I didn't even live in a farm, far from it LOL) - but what I really wanted was a dog. Your girls must be over the moon :)
