MY DOG MUGZEE

 

I'm a Dr. Suess fan! Sure, I can do this?  I like this silliness and rhyming of Dr. Suess stories. My favorite is One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.

 Well, I decided my dog was an easy topic to fit with Dr. Seuss.  Mugzee has OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder).  I made up a silly but true story about Mugzee.  In the story One fish, two fish... there is no more than 8 words per line. I tried to stick with this rule. My rhyming is not as good.

 

After Jackson grew out of his bouncer seat I left it on the floor. I turned around one day and Mugzee was in it. It has been hers ever since. The blanket is in the bouncer and she buries herself in it.

This is a close up view of a embellishment from little yellow bicycle - see last photo. I try to put everything I use on a page taped to the back of the 1st page. I can't remember if I don't do that. I just paste the barcode or description from the paper strip/package. Really easy!

The story One fish, two fish..is mostly colored red, blue and yellow. I chose black background paper because our dog is mostly black.  The other colors I chose were orange and turquoise blue. The idea of orange came from the tag from the Hartz bones Mugzee is obsessed with. The blue was picked because of one of those Hartz bones and Dr. Seuss.

I used a couple of pictures of Mugzee with her bones. Her licker license and the poem I wrote. Pretty simple and silly like a fan of Dr. Suess would be. Hope you enjoy it.

 

 

This is where I tape what is used so I can remember later. Mosaic grid in black. Free download alphabet. Cricut sampler cartridge for "woof". Font Duchess Microsoft Word. Chipboard spinner as pictured. After I printed this I added a heart  punch around the page from Martha Steward on page 2.

This is great. I like your embellishments and the way you tied everything together.

The "woof" is so great and the photo of your pooch under the covers which you included in your poem helps bring the content together. I love the "Licker License". Very cute indeed.

Love the colors...very fitting! The layout is crisp, the poem is fun, and I love the heart punch. And of course your dog is ADORABLE!

What a great page - I love the poem you wrote to be like the Seuss book. The pictures are great and love the embellishments too.

Nice, organized layout, great colors, cute dog - and doesn't Dr. Seuss bring out the silly in all of us? You all are so creative, but if I keep up, maybe I'll learn a few things and find it easier myself. Thanks for sharing.

HI Julie! I loved your layout, your poem, the colors and your dog, Mugzee! Mugzee is a hoot! Your layout look is so clean-I love that! Very nicely done!

Ditto Heather's thoughts. Fun colors, great idea to use a poem and your dog is the perfect subject. I love the "woof" - great font. :)

Your poem is a scream and you can never go wrong with a story about a dog! Love your color combo as well!

I did enjoy it Julie! Love the tip for remembering what you used on a layout...I'll have to use that! Great photos of Mugzee and they are showcased nicely. You've picked your embellishments well and they only add to the photos and story and not distract. You fooled me with the heart block...I was sure that was one of Tami's Cornerstones!
