Sleeping Dogs

Paper by Liv - Bear Hugs
Frame and Stitching from Gunhilde

This was the lastest Challenge at Jessica Sprague mb. Scraplift and use the Orton Effect. I thought the dogs would be a good target, uh i mean subjects for this project. They were all sleeping so I thought this is good. They are all stationary and should be easy to get pictures of. 

Roxanne, of course, had her head under the pillow of the couch sleeping. We call this her ostrich look. Molly (2nd photo) hangs her head over the edge of the couch and sleeps. Reminds me of a vulture looking for prey. Madison - the big chocolate lab just takes over the whole couch. Of course she does weigh over 80 lbs. Then there's Jasmine. She loves to have her picture taken. She was sound asleep then heard me turn on the camera and had to sit up and pose. She thinks that anytime the camera is on I need to be taking pictures of her. So no sneaking up on her for any candid shots because she stops and poses. It's actually pretty funny to see her running around and just stop for a picture.

We had an eclipse today. I hopefully got some good pictures. I just hope any are actually in focus. So I'll be playing with them in the next couple of days and do a layout on that soon.

Have a great day and tfl!

Lisa, I love this LO. I think I might have to scrap lift this one for use with my puppies... not that I can catch them sleeping very often... or I should say, never when I have my camera ready!

That is hilarious! I think Jasmine is my favorite, who ever heard of a posing dog. Just too funny!!!

Beautiful puppies! And what applies to puppies usually applies to babies (as in, let sleeping babies. . . )!This layout is wonderful!

dawns said... your puppies! They're so cute. We watched the eclipse too (it was very cool)! I love anything like that...a couple of years ago I got the kids up at 3:00 in the morning & we sat out on the deck and watched a meteroid shower. It was cold, so we bundled up in blankets & had hot chocolate!
