MDS Blog Hop - Oh Snap!

Hello friends!  Thanks for stopping by for our MDS Blog Hop!  Today we have a new designer joining us - Wendy Weixler!  We're excited to have her share her talents with us!!  For today's Blog Hop, we're showing you what we've been working on.  I've been trying to make a dent in the jpegs on my laptop!! The more layouts I can get done, the better!  And what better way than MDS?!

I found a couple of photos from a visit to the vet I wanted to scrapbook.  A trip to the vet with two 85 pound dogs is always interesting.  Thank goodness my boys are old enough to help me!  My dogs (Marley & Pepper) usually realize about 10 feet outside of the vet's front door where they are and come to an abrupt stop.  This leads to one of us pulling the leash and the other pushing from behind.  I'm sure it's quite entertaining for anyone watching us.  We still laugh about one trip in particular…  Carter was waiting in the car with Pepper while Evan and I brought Marley inside.  (Seriously, we've learned it has to be done in "shifts".)  There were tons of other dogs inside so we had to hold on to her real tightly so she didn't go near them.  While I was trying to hold Marley's leash and sign in, she got wrapped around Evan's legs.  You know how when the back of your knees get hit, you automatically buckle?  Yeah, next thing I knew, Evan was on the ground.  I looked down and noticed that I had written all across my chest with the pen I was using to "try" and sign in.  I was sweating from the stress of it all and crying because Evan and I were laughing so hard.  It really felt like we were living out an excerpt from the book, Marley & Me.  We finally got settled and looked around.  Not one person in the waiting area, smiled, laughed or reassured us in any way.  For some reason, that just made us laugh even more…  Well, I'm happy to say that we survived that trip to the vet and they've seemed to go a little smoother ever since.  I really wish I had photos to scrap from that adventure.  But, here's a layout from a recent visit - Marley looks so sweet and happy to be there, doesn't she?!  Hmm…...

MDS Downloads Used:
Hi There (DSP and Bubble Punch), Retro Fresh Pocket Cards (recolored to Strawberry Slush), Downtown Grunge (frames), Paw Parade, The Best Year, Tickets & Tags

I love using pink and green!  With two boys, using girly colors feels like a treat!  The colors from the "Hi There" download are soooo fun!!  And I loved the "Oh Snap" sentiment from the Retro Fresh Pocket Cards to go with this page.  Once I recolored it, it was perfect!

Super cute Page Cori! and I loved the story about your previous trip to the vet! so funny that no one else laughed along with you guys. Maybe they thought there was a hidden camera, sounds like a sit-com!
