Scrap Challenge: 'These are a few of my favorite things!!!'

I am participating in an online challenge blog. Thanks to my friends Lisa and Toni.. I loved the idea Toni came up with making an album about herself.. So, I think I will too.. Here is the front of my scrapbook album.. I love it!! It turned out better than I could have hoped for. I will be adding the pages I do from the blog every two weeks. I can't wait for the next challenge..

First Challenge: What is your favorite color???

I love the color Tiffany Blue... also green-blue, blue-green.. I can't wait to see what our next challenge will be:

I also wanted to share some pictures of a couple paintings I have been working on. I just start painting a couple of months ago.. I thought I would start with dogs? For some reason they seemed the easiest to me?? (Weird, I know!)

The first painting is of my dog Homer.. He has a face only a mother could love! ha! He is the first one I painted. I really like the way it turned out..
I put the photo I used of Homer in the corner for everyone to see the photo vs. the painting..

This painting is of my brother in laws girlfriend dog.. Wrigley! (They are HUGE, HUGE cub fans..) So naturally the dog would be named Wrigley! ha!

And last but not least... I painted a picture of 'our' cousin's dog. She lost him a couple of years ago.. and has always wanted a painting of him.. So, she doesn't know it yet but for Christmas she will be receiving this painting. I hope she likes it..

Coming Soon...

I am currently working on my blog site. This is a little new to me so I am still working out the kinks.

I will be participating in an online challenge blog with two of my crafty friends, Toni and Lisa.

I can't wait to share what I have been working on.
