My first love was a dog, of course! Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dogs

One of our members at Swirlydoos, Paula,  is hosting a great fun challenge this month at Swirlydoos Kit Club to scrap your first love.  Mine had to be a dog and here I am circa 1953 with Mary Jane. She was wire haired fox terrier I think.  I really don't remember her very well but I am sure that was the beginning of my obsession with doggie furbabies.

For this layout, I layered a lot of different patterns from the Raining Cats & Dogs collection.

 I used Lindy's Jack in the Pulpit Teal to dye some blue flowers to match the flowers in the patterned papers and this color matches perfectly.

 The large red/orange flowers are old Prima Gallery Roses; they go so well with Graphic 45.  I'm so glad that I've been able to find them here and there to reorder.

The cream daisies are from I Am Roses.
