one of the silliest things i've ever made... this "pug life" ATC book, full of eponymous loldog photos that have amused me over the last six months or so.

i started saving them for my friend gina, who is a big fan of dogs generally, and whose family was adopted by a pug this year. we often find the same things funny, and we're both always on the lookout for an interesting way to combine photographs and papercrafting. i sent it to her on her birthday. ok, actually, despite being ready to go well in advance, i sent it to her several weeks AFTER her birthday. because that's the way i roll!  i think this might be my favorite page of the book:

it's the punctuation: gimme. dat. hat. pug.  it's become a bit of a catchphrase around here.  i also love this one:

 i felt preeeeeeeeeeetty confident that she would not have thought to make one of these for *HERSELF*, and as it turned out, she seems to have enjoyed getting this almost as much as i loved making it!  as an extra added bonus, her sons quite like it too, so i feel pretty pleased all-round! 

do you think it's too early to start saving up lols for "VOLUME 2"??!?  :) :) :)

  4. Your book is terrific! Those two pages made me laugh so hard I nearly fell out of my chair :)

  5. haha! I think this is fantastic and I just love your sense of humor! And now I get why you think "Lewis" stole the show, that little whipper snapper. I confess, I am my 2 labs person (a dog person) but these two kittens - now seem hugs - have stolen my heart! BUT just these two!!!! haha
