Happy Birthday Ryan!

It's been so nice to see you develop into the mature young man you've become...taking on new responsibilities such as your new dog, Willow, and your beautiful new house.

Your big sister is proud of you! 
HaPpY BiRtHdAY!!

I thought I would share with you the album I made Ryan for Christmas. It's always tricky trying to come up with a handmade gift for my brother(s), but once I thought to create a dog album (my brother's #1 love), I'm surprise the idea didn't come sooner...
I found the perfect album to use~ one covered in soft brown suede. I then went to the dollar store, bought a collar and glued it around the album. To open, all you have to do it unsnap the collar. As a final touch I added a personalized dog tag. 

These little dog bone paper clips were too cute to pass up.

I love using ripped out dictionary pages when I can, this page worked out perfectly: a whole column of doggy words and the last one ending in dog-tired.
