Scrapbooking Global May 2020 Blog Hop

Hey there Stampin' Friends!!  I am so excited to be participating in the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for the first time EVER! YAY!  The theme for this month's hop is "INTERACTIVE".    Oh boy! That leaves a LOT to the imagination, doesn't it?  I can't wait to share my layout with you, so let's get to it!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you already know about my "studio buddies" Layla and Gunner. If you don't yet follow me, they are my bestest companions.  They're two of the most beautiful Boxers you ever saw. And the best dogs I've ever encountered. 

Once upon a time, when they were much younger, we let them have a litter of pups.  Long story short, it was an incredibly stressful situation because Layla wasn't really the best mama and finding "ACCEPTABLE" homes by our standards was very difficult.  So we had them spayed/neutered shortly after the puppies were weened.   But for that short time when they were tiny, we enjoyed having babies around!

I decided to (FINALLY) do Layla's maternity layout.

The interactive parts of my layout are indicated by the "pull tabs".  

On this page, there is a photo hidden behind the other. 

Pulling the tab on this page, draws out the journal box. 

This was such a fun project, and it made me get to work on some very long overdue scrapbooking! Considering the "puppies" are 8 years old already! hehe. 

Mama & Daddy (Layla & Gunner) a couple days ago: 

They love each other so very much!
