TPV Challenge - Polka-dots!

I LOVE polka-dots! I don't think I know anyone who doesn't. They're always in style and I love seeing them on projects, fashions, home decor etc. This week at The Paper Variety, we want to see lots of polkadots! :)

And if you're chosen the lucky random winner, you can pick your own prize with this $25 gift certificate to The Paper Trail! Woohoo!

I'm a big fan of Melinda Spinks, she's so super talented. She's a designer for several of my favorite companies, I just love seeing her projects in so many places. Last Fall, Melinda created the most adorable doggy treat bag found here on her blog. I've been wanting to make one too, lifting her fabulous design and I finally decided it was time. :)

I really wanted to use Basic Grey "Max & Whiskers" because I LOVE the warm colors and fun puppy/kitty designs. But I didn't have polka dot paper in the collection, just dots... well, dots it is then :) Isn't it cute? Thank you for sharing your project, Melinda.. inspiring me to create one, too :)

Our Cooper is a beagle/bassett hound mix that we rescued from the shelter last October. He's the most loveable dog, always wanting to cuddle and drench our faces with kisses... we're so fortunate to have found him. We've definitely had our issues, though - but one PlayStation2 connection cable, THREE phone chargers, one lamp cord and countless legos later - he's still a keeper!!

Thanks for stopping by :)
