Pepper- 11 dog years - 60 human years

This was done for 3 challenges on 
May Ugly Paper Challenge (scroll down to see original papers) - the slide paper is the clouds and the tags- the red is in the center. I cut 6" widths & lined everything up, attached them w/scotch tape so I could evenly punch the paw prints across the top. The embellie rick-rack is used on the banner- the banner flags & sun were cut using CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge & the letters Alphalicious.

May Scrap Your Pet challenge.

May Use Your Scraps challenge- the banner pieces, white on the tags, sun & the left and right green papers are all scraps.

Pepper is our older dog now- she is 11 as of March this year- she came to live with us in May 2001 as a mangy pup (left upper pic) shown w/my son who was 10 at the time. She loves to go for car rides. We call her bat dog because of the ear thing when she is expecting something. She is very sweet natured- until she's chasing a squirrel (our younger dog, Zoe- shown w/Pepper in bottom far right- caught a squirrel yesterday & Pepper took it from her to claim & kill it). She is slowing down & has a bad knee, but she is still a pup at heart.

If you want to know how I figured out she is 60 Human Years- go to where they have a great chart that better represents the age relationship between dogs & their persons (hint- it's not 7 times their current dog years)
