The end of May always marks the beginning of summer break for me. The school year is over, grading is done, and it's time to spend some quality time enjoying the outdoors of the great state of Arizona. Nobody loves this time of year better than my dogs, Sweetness and Boone. This past March, we almost lost fourteen year old Sweetness to a huge tumor on her spleen, but thankfully the surgery went well, and she is doing amazing! But that event made me want to document some of the happy times with this dog while I was still enjoying them. And well, there is nothing this dog loves more than a good road trip.
We have to be very careful around our house because Sweetness understands the words, "hike," "walk" and "go." She will look up, stare at us, and run over to the basket where we keep the leashes if we forget to spell these words out. It was time to get this on paper, and the Urban Traveler line was the perfect complement. I'm loving the extra dimension the new embellishments give the Simple Stories lines of products, and here I used them to accent my dog's happy grin.
A simple design, and a few embellishments, and this layout was done. I'm especially loving the new brads with their bright colors and fun added designs.
If you're headed out on the road for any reason at all this summer, now might be a good time to pick up this line for all the photos you are bound to take. Most of all, be safe out there!
