Scrappin' the Hairy Baby

Hi doggies,

It's Posie's mum here!  Thought I'd swing by and steal her limelight for a minute, seeing as she's sleeping! haha!

We all enjoyed the entries for her Saturday Sweeties Competition so so much, you all went to a lot of effort and your photos made us smile and giggle! We found it very hard to pick a winner for the first week, although your picture was pretty laugh-tastic Sarge!!! So, you can be sure if you entered last week, that blogsville hasn't seen the end of your pictures yet!

I'm so very busy at the moment, as I'm in the middle of my Masters and it's assignment-a-thon at the moment, with 3 due over the next 2 weeks!!! So, I'm sorry if I have to hog the laptop from Miss P-diddle too much over the next few days, but there's much to be done! haha!  She'll have to snatch her daddy's computer if she's needing to post!!

Posie's been so good with me going 'back to school' and always has cuddles in abundance when I'm tired of studying and in need of some 'love n likkies' as she always says!  She's such a little sweetheart and is a constant inspiration!  See, when I'm not knee-deep in course work and research, I love to scrapbook.  I love the freedom, the colour, the textures, the ideas and looking for inspiring sights and getting out to take photos!  In particular I love buttons and ribbons!!! 

Posie features heavily in my scrap-pages and I thought I'd share some of my favourites with you! I'm sure that she won't mind, because it's all promotion for you, eh Posie? hahaha!

This first one, includes pictures of Posie after she had an absolute mental turn at Granda R and Granny L's!  She was completely wrecked and just wanted to lie on her back, which she never does!:

Just Catchin' Some Sunbeams

This next one is probably the most simplistic in style, but everyone in the family's favourite!  Poor Posie wrapped in her little head-square! haha!:

There is NOWHERE as fun as ROWIE'S TOYBOX

Next we have Miss P with her auntie Rowie's Doggles on, never fails to make me laugh!:

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? NO!!!'s a Posie dorg!

You'll notice that her pages are very colourful!  I've been scrapbooking for about 7/8 years and I've done old-fashioned pages, vintage pages, 21st birthday books, 40th books for men etc, but there's something about encapsulating Posie that just needs utter vibrancy and colour.  She's so much fun and ridiculously energetic when she feels like it and she sort of emanates colour and radiates sunshine in whatever she's up to.  So when scrapbooking her, you can't have a bland assortment of hues, it needs to be bright and highlight her personality and sillyness too! 

This one perfectly encapsulates the relationship between P-dorg and her Auntie Rowie!  Posie looks like: YEAH auntie Rowie SMIILE!!!, whereas Rowie is like, Oh dear Dog make it stop! hahaha!:

Just take the photo would ya?!
Finally, Posie's best bits! hahaha!  She just has certain bits that make a Posie a Posie, especially that licky tongue that always gets you with a slurp on the side of your face when you least expect it! haha!:

What makes a Posie dog?

I hope you can see how happy Posie makes me and her dadder! She is simply a great pet/hairy baby!!!

Thanks for listening tonight! It's been a long day studying and another fun-packed write-a-thon tomorrow so I needed to do something else for a half hour and everyone who knows me knows that speaking about Posie could amuse me for hours upon hours on end!

Hope you doggies are taking good care and being good and your mums n dads n owners are all fine!

Don't forget to send in a picture for Posie's Saturday Sweeties competition if you haven't already, by the way!  (see her Saturday Sweeties post for details)
