Scrapbook Project with Michelle

So I finally did it...I completed a scrapbook layout! I had some major help from my new friend Michelle. I asked her if she would help me with designing a layout and a shared project grew out of that. She created a  2-page sketch for me to use and gave me a lot of good advice and shared her design expertise with me. We decided we would both make a layout to share with you of our fun shared project. To check out Michelle's awesome layout visit her blog HERE.
I was wanting to do a scrapbook page about my little pack of dogs for a while and when Bruno left us a month ago today it just seemed the timing was right to get this creative project checked off on my to do list.
Here's the sketch that Michelle drew up for me to use:
Here's how I interpreted her brilliant sketch:

Thank you so much Michelle! I couldn't have done this without your help and your creative sketch to get me going! I'm looking forward to creating many more scrapbook pages...time to break out the military themed  stash items and get going on the album of Ben's  adventures in the Marine Corps.

Blessings in the Lord!
