My first project, a layout, shares the beautiful friendship between a dog and his people or in this case my grandchildren.

Comet has been a part of their family before they were born and has welcomed each one. I have two more photos of two more grandchildren with Comet and this layout is ready for their family book. And yes, I shared my handwriting in this one. I added just a few embellishments, the blue flags to pop the color in two of the photos and the plaid border. I added a border of gray hearts with paw prints. I kept …
