This is a double page layout using last weeks Let's Scrap sketch... I turned it and tweaked it to work with my pics but love the way it turned out.
For those of you who don't know... we have had 3 German Shepherds. All 3 have had such different personalities and quirks. This is Kameka, her mom and dad were 'cop dogs' and the breeder works with my guy. So he followed the process of the babies.. birth, the fuzzy lil buggers and then went to pick out his puppy. This was his dog... she was a doll and very sweet but very protective of him. Jazzy got mad at Marcel and voiced her opinion and the fight was on and Jazzy lost the battle... $2000 later, surgery and damage to her eye.. Jazzy was a mess. We were concerned doing foster care that something like this 'could' happen to a child in our home. We gave her back to the breeder... she is an incredible dog.. she ended up with a Deputy in Marcel's department and is a 'cop dog' and a good one. She is doing great and this layout can still bring a tear to My Adorable One's eye thinking of his dog... Kameka...

Aunt Wilma...

My dear Aunt Wilma passed away on Saturday. Many of us were lucky enough to see her before she passed. Several of us were with her when she passed on as well... I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Wilma - family get togethers and such but my favorite memories that I treasure of those of when I was just a teenager and it was just her and I... either house sitting and playing board games or shopping. Taking my boys to her house when they were just 'wee - ones' for trick-or-treating. She loved all of her niece and nephews and never missed the opportunity to tell us all that we needed to come and visit her more than any of us did.

Aunt Wilma was the oldest of 5 children.... she was also the first one to pass on. This will be hard on her 2 brothers and 2 sisters as well as on her only son.

I have pulled together some pics that I have of Aunt Wilma to share with my family....

this is of the 5 Springer kids.. starting at the right hand side is my Aunt Doreen, Uncle Wayne and he is holding Leotta, Uncle Delbert and Aunt Wilma is standing in the back.. not sure on the date of this photo

This is Aunt Wilma and is dated 1952
