November 2020 Pet Challenge

Post by blbabe1234 » Sun Nov 01, 2020 2:50 pm

Hello cherries! Before we move on to this month's challenge, don't forget the Oct Pet Challenge run thru Novemeber 5th!! So you still have time.

This month, we will be concentrating on journaling. Most of the time when we scrap our pets, unless its about their adoption or an illness, or something major, we normally don't journal much. Maybe a quick sentence or two here and there.

The inspiration for this challenge was something that Penny did one evening about a month ago. I knew that when I scrap this photo, I would want to tell a story. And this is it.

Image

Journaling reads: Penny is one of the sweetest girls we have ever had. She's goofy and quirky in her own way, but we love her so much. Rob and I joke that if she was human, she'd be our little drama queen. She gives stink eye when she is mad. she whines and moans when doesn't get her way. She also isn't a morning person and loves to sleep in. This one evening, she sat in front of us, moaning and groaning and wagging her tail when I asked "What is it Penny?" She did that for a few minutes, then left. She came back and did it again. That's when I noticed the time. 9:15PM. It was past her bedtime. She wanted to be tucked in. I asked her "Do you want your blankie?". Sure enough, she walked down the hallway and into our bedroom. She led me towards her bed and laid down, waiting for me to put her blanket on her. That's all she wanted.

Here's a few rules:
1. Journal about your pets. Tell a story. You'll need at least 5 sentences.
2. Paper and Digital layouts are acceptable.
3. Must post here by November 30th  at 11:59PM
4. You may combine with one other challenge if they allow it
5. You may do this challenge up to THREE times
6. One random winner will receive a $5 gc to ACOT

Have fun!

Love it, to me journaling is the most important part. Except for my fish, Nemo, we don't currently have any pets but we did a few years ago that I have never scrapped. Off to find those pics.

I too feel like journaling is very important. It tells the story for others to understand the photos, not just see them. Definitely have some cat stories I can tell!

Found them.  Not for nothing, but there is no embellishments out there for a pet mouse!!!  Glad to finally have this done though.

Love this! I know what I am doing! Thank you for printing out your journaling, it is So cute! Some dogs have a pretty big vocabulary! I rarely hear anyone say “stink eye”  LOL  . We are going to San Antonio on the 15th but I will be getting this before I Leave!,

One more about this cutie creature. She was a sweet but very sneaky little thing.

Awesome story, Brandy!  Being tucked in is special for everyone!  Wish someone would do that for me again!
Autumn is the season that teaches us that change can be beautiful.

My story is the gifts granddog Teddy received for Christmas in 2019 and his reaction to them -- not a happy pooch! Look at that face! Journaled as if Teddy was telling the story, hope that's OK. Also for Manufacturer Challenge.

Haven't done your challenge in a long time, but actually had pet photos to use.  
Just the unique bond between these two.
Also for the Nov  Movie of the Decade Challenge

I love this challenge Brandy! I journaled all about Twinkie and Sky's quiet time on my letter "Q" page for their ABC album.

I am combining with the Manufacturer with a Twist Challenge.
