Challenge 10

Its time for another challenge!
This week its all about those precious cuddles.
We all love to cuddle our pets sometimes or even our pets like to cuddle up to each other. Or maybe your pet is anti-cuddles!
You could also be in with the chance of winning a fab prize, just leave us a link to your layouts. So get scrapping those cuddly moments!
Katie Shanahan-Jones is also joining us as a guest this week (her puppy is just sooo adorable). Heres Katies bio:
"My name is Katie, apparently I'm 37 years old and I live in Oxfordshire with my very tolerant husband and our three children. I say tolerant because of them putting up with my messy habits with glitter, inks and UTEE or 'Mummy's 'speriments' as my youngest calls them. I've been scrapping for about fours years although I've crafted since I was small and in the winter I hibernate and knit!In July this year we had a new family member join us, Willow the Beagle! Willow is our first dog and although we are on a steep learning curve we are having a ball! I have that as well as learning to look after Willow I've also had to learn to photograph and scrapbook her! After three children, who have been quite well trained to either 'pose' or 'ignore the camera' Willow is a whole new kettle of fish, more interested in sticking her nose in the lens!!But we love her to bits and she has some endearing habits that I have recorded in my layout (and some less than endearing ones I'll gloss over for now!)"

being owned by a dog...

You may remember the post about Willow joining Katie Shanahan-Jones' household a little while ago...well one month on and Katie has made lots of discoveries. I found this so funny, sweet and true that I thought it needed to be shared!

KT has never owned (or been owned by) a dog before, here are her observations:

~Puppies fart...enough to stink out a room!
~Puppies love veggies!
~My puppy eats her own pooh (ugh)
~We cheered when Willow buried then FOUND her first item (OK it was only a carrot!!)~Puppies sleep a lot
~Puppies snore!
~Having a puppy makes you a magnet for everyone and strangers talk to you...well to the puppy!!!
~Beagles have BIG ears that soak up water from their bowl and transports it around the house!!~Willow loves drinking from the end of the hose...a puddle...buckets almost anywhere OTHER than her nice clean drinking water.
~Puppies chew...ALL THE TIME!
~Puppies are unbelievably adorable
~Puppies are unbelievably annoying
~Puppies are unbelievably funny
~People walking their dogs in the park are REALLY helpful and full of kind words for nervous new puppy owners.
~Puppies like Lego (children are NOT keen on this)
~Willow loves sleeping behind the TV
~Willow sunbathes
~Beagles NEVER lift their nose off the ground except to eat something
~Willow kisses us
~Willow sucks my fingers when she's sleepy
~Willow makes groany noises when tired
~We love Willow and can't imagine her not being in our family

So how many times did you nod in agreement?!
