OLW challenge - Living
The challenge over at One Little Word is the word "Living".
And I'm reminded of this...
"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens."
Lewis L. Dunnington
It was a particularly hard challenge for me because my dog of 14 years passed away on the 3rd.
:( Cookie was a cocker spaniel, loved by all at home. She wasn't ill, just old. In recent weeks, she wasn't eating very well...so unlike her...she ate everything..She couldn't walk very steadily but made the effort to poop and pee at her assigned "toilet" so that we won't have to clean up her mess.. so considerate!
I remember her floppy ears and head sticking out of the gate as she watched people and cars passing by. Or how she would chase the birds in the garden. Or dig holes in the garden. Or salivate when she sees food. And of course, how she would rest her head on my thighs when she senses that I've had a bad day.
She will be missed dearly and remembered for her love of life.
Anyway, I managed to complete this challenge. With my scraps. And a lovely photo of my nephew with his current favourite toy - a Power Puff Girl doll. He couldn't decide whether he liked Blossom or Bubbles more :) In ten years, this will be pretty embarrassing for him..:)
Didn't get round to some fancy techniques. Just sprayed the quote and the chipboard letter G with Glimmer Mist for some shine. Felt flower was cut with a Sizzix die.
Apologies for the bad pics..it's been pretty cloudy these few days...
