after school buds

This is an every day occurrence in our house during the week. Tucker (the pup) is my bud all day long until the kids come home from school. He is so excited to see the kids but most especially for Ben to come home.
He will bug him, jump on him, nibble his fingers and sniff his head until Ben plays with him. He won't stop...it's quite hilarious! And only right after school. This pup definitely loves his buddy Ben :)

Have I mentioned recently how much I love this dog?? Such a sweet addition to our family. I can't wait to see him with the new baby :)
ETA - I just realized that I goofed up the last line of the journaling. I blame pregnancy brain! HA! Thanks Cheryl for catching that :)
This layout is based on the 'It Takes Two' challenge over at the Noel Mignon challenge blog. (It may not be up on the blog yet, I know Noel has been having computer issues. Been there that's for sure!)

The challenge is to use 2 (and only 2 ) of each item on your layout...i.e., 2 patterned papers, 2 metal embellishments, 2 flowers, etc. 
Use whatever you want but you can only use 2. I found it to be a bit challenging at first but then when I figured out everything I wanted to use it was pretty easy! It actually forced me to create a pretty simple layout that I'm quite happy with.
So here's what I used:
2 pictures
2 cardstock (yellow for background & white for journaling)
2 patterned papers
2 buttons
2 metal brads
2 alphas
2 stickers
2 threads (white & blue/white in buttons)
2 die cuts
2 inks (black for date & brown for distressing)

Be sure to try this challenge & head over to the challenge blog for more details!

And don't forget, Delightfully Domestic is up for pre-sale right now. Snag one before they're all gone!

A very nice layout. Check the last line of journaling on the layout. It could just be me. Love this challenge. Am going to try it. We are moving to AL this summer. Not quite as far as you but a move is a move. Lots to do.

Great layout and it helped me with a problem I was having with a layout. I have been working on a layout of my son reading to our dog but couldn't come up with a title. You inspired me to call it "Reading Buds". Thanks
