Sketches in Thyme #101

Time for me to join in the challenge over at Sketches In Thyme this week.

Here is the sketch;

& here is my page based on the sketch

isn't he cute?

Uscar is his name.  We thought we had misheard it when we were first told & thought they had meant Oscar.

On our way back home from a holiday & taking a picturesque tour of the Malvern Hills on the way we decided to find somewhere to stay for one night.  Purely by chance we found this lovely B&B with absolutely gorgeous views over the hills.  In fact it was so nice - we stayed 2 nights.

The owners of the B&B were training this delightful puppy to be a guide dog, & would be looking after him for about 12 months (I think I remember that correctly - as once again these are photos taken some 5 years ago).  He was irresistible & it was very hard not to make too much fuss of him & risk undoing the good work the couple were doing.  They told us that when he had his lead on he was working - well training at working - so we were very good & didn't distract him.  But when his lead was off we could make a fuss & give him a cuddle.  I took these photos just as we were leaving to continue our journey home.

Now! the page - as always it has been created in Serif Craft Artist & I found the background page in one of the many kits I have on my laptop.  I just lightened it a little.  I love these frames that make it look like the photos have been torn - yet funnily I most probably wouldn't tear an actual photo.

Thank you Sketches in Thyme - another great layout to try & another of my many to do pages created & done.
