Creations with the Flying Unicorn Nov KOM

November is such a special month at the Flying Unicorn because it is the month the we unite to give something back and this year we've chosen one of my favorite charities, Best Friends Animal Society.  Best Friends is a wonderful no-kill animal shelter that houses around 1700 homeless animals, everything from dogs to pigs to birds to bunnies and everything in between.  Best Friends works throughout the US to promote spay/neuter programs, animal adoption and no kill shelters.  In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, Best Friends was instrumental in rescuing animals left stranded and homeless.

Don't forget the blog hop going on right now!

Hop to win it - you have till 6:00pm tonight !! start at :

Tammy and I are hosting a very special challenge this month and I do hope that you will take a minute to visit our challenge at the Flying Unicorn.  You'll find our challenge here.  As many of you know, I recently lost my dear Chena and Tammy lost her Macy and so we wanted to do something special to honor their memories. We will donate $5, up to $250 to Best Friends, for each project that is uploaded to our challenge that features an animal.  It can be a card, a tag, a layout, whatever you want.  All you have to do is upload your project here.  (If you are not already a member of Flying Unicorn, you will have to join but that is easy).  Please help us reach our goal!!!

I know some of you are familiar with the adventures of Escape Kitty and Chena.  Jen and I have had so much fun writing stories about these two.   I just want to share a little bit about Chena with you.  She was a really special girl, she was so child like and such a clown!  She was confident, not afraid of anything.  You know how many dogs are afraid of fireworks?  Not Chena, she would sit outside and watch the fireworks with us.  She was so silly; its just a little thing, but its the thing I am missing the most.  She would sit on the floor near the dinner table with us and invariably stick her head under the tablecloth and then raise her head up.  There she'd sit with her head covered by the tablecloth begging for a tidbit.  Then she'd come out from under the tablecloth with a big grin on her face.  Or I'd tell her to lay down.  Oh yeah, she would lay down but not like a normal dog.  Oh no, she'd jump up and do this big belly flop on the floor. 

Nika, our younger poodle, was heartbroken when Chena passed.  Its been almost 2 months now and Nika is just now getting her appetite back.  To help Nika get over her loneliness, we got sweet puppy Tisha.  They are the best of friends now and Nika is once again, a happy girl.

Here are a couple of layouts of sweet Tisha on a layout that I did with the November KOM.  I used Marion Smith's Mad Tea Party papers that came in the kit on this layout.  Oooh I love this paper!!

These are Prima wooden mushrooms and they are from my stash.  I first inked them with Mix'd Media Inx in leather and then embossed on one side only, with Stampendous aged spice embossing enamel.  I love the effect that this gave!
