Layout | And they called it Puppy Love

Welcome to the new year, and with it, a new challenge is up at Child's Play Challenges.  We're switching things up a bit over there with only two challenges a month.  To start the month off, the inspiration is a game you probably either loved or hated as a kid: Monopoly.  I loved to buy the properties and have people pay up, but when it came to the putting houses on, that meant the game had gone on too long and I was probably bored.

For the challenge, I took inspiration from the pewter playing pieces, specifically the dog.  Ian's grandma has a puppy named Lacy, and Ian has been in love with her since he was old enough to recognize her.  He loves to cuddle with her, get kisses, play fetch, and just hang out.  Since I'm not a big dog fan (actually, any pet), this will probably be as close as he'll get to a real pet for awhile, and I wanted to capture their relationship.

The word "love" in the title is all numbers except for the letter v. Loved using up Thickers that don't usually get used.

Oh, and the winner of the "My Favorite Things" blog hop prize was #2- Moongirl!
