I just love this layout! I love how the stitching turned out. (I can't remember where I saw the idea to separate a page into a grid with stitching lines but it worked great!) I used two colors of thread and purposely stitched uneven lines with a little backstitching for interest.
The idea for painting the edges of the cardstock was from the October issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. - quite possibly their best issue ever.
Just a fun layout to put together. You'll probably see this one used again.
Speaking of Jasper, we took him to the vet for his checkup yesterday and it was a fairly pleasant trip. Nothing at all like Casey who, every car trip, would put on a performance worthy of a dozen cranky two-year-old children. She made sure to make the experience as unpleasant for us, the vet, and the poor vet's assistant as she did for herself. She would also spend the next two days after her vet visit refusing to eat and hiding under the furniture. We were never sure if this was a reaction to her shots or Act 2 of "The Trip to the V-E-T" tradgedy. Anyway, Jasper got along fine, what a relief!
