The Bug Files posted Aug 14, 2016
by pawprints

For Sher's August Pet/Ewwwwwww Challenge - to scrap something about bugs. Our Boomer was a bug eater and although I never actually took a picture of him eating a bug I can tell the story. So I found a digi kit all about bugs and printed out some of the bugs on transparency and cut them out and scattered them all around. I also got the title from the kit. I thought it was perfect and I recolored it and added one of the bugs to it. I also cut out the dragonflies with my Cameo.

Journaling reads: Boomie was our bug catcher. He would see a bug on the floor and immediately go after it and eat it. If a spider was crawling he'd get it. If a mosquito was flying by he'd catch it in mid air. You would hear the snap of his jaws and that mosquito was gone. We'd all go ewwwww, but then again that was one mosquito that wouldn't be biting us. Sometimes if I saw a bug and he wasn't in the room I'd be tempted to call him in to get it, but then I wouldn't do it. But I will admit that on at least one occasion I found a nasty bug that I didn't want to get and I reluctantly called him in to do the job. I felt bad afterwards, but he didn't mind at all. He was happy to help! But I still said ewwwwww!
