I scrapped another page for my 1990's retro album. I've only got one picture of this gorgeous Golden Retriever "Elsie" who belonged to my future sister-in-law. Back in the 90's I lived on an island in the Whitsundays and there were no pets permitted, so I would get a 'dog fix' every time we visited friends or family on the mainland!

I'm sharing this page at:

* Mystical Scrapbooks ~ April Colour challenge + use stencils

Scrap Challenge Yourself ~ Favourite animal

I couldn't resist adding these little puffy sticker embellishments that have been in my stash forever:
