New Journal Pages and The Last Highlight of Honeymoon Four...

Hello and Happy Saturday! I've got one last post about Honeymoon Four for you, but first I want to share some new journal pages. These are pages from the journal I shared in the last post.

First, the title page. The bookplate is a free download from Helen Dardik. You can find them here and there are three different styles to choose from! The page on the opposite side was torn from a vintage magazine...


The rest of the stuff is mostly from Noel Mignon's Dear Diary kit, plus extras from my stash...



The last big highlight of Honeymoon Four was attending The "Howloween" Festival for pets, in Colorado Springs, which was put on by a non-profit organization called "Safe Place for Pets". "Safe Place" helps people with terminal illnesses find caring homes for their animals. What an amazing cause.


The best part of the festival was the canine costume parade! HA!!!!! We had so much fun watching all the animals parade around in their costumes it was just ADORABLE!!! Here's the beginning of the parade...

The best part of the parade was how proud the dogs seemed to be about their costumes - it was so cute! And as you will see, some of the people dressed in coordinating outfits too. Here was one of my favorites. The dog was dressed as a "fallen angel..." Doesn't she just look proud of herself?

Check out the tiny little samba dancer peeking over her mom's shoulder...

and her is a full view of her in costume - omg how cute is she?????

You can't get much cuter than two pit bull fairies...

Or a golden retriever ballerina...


how about this little devil???

or the teeniest participants in their tiny red devil outfits...

There was a court jester...

one of my personal favorites, a spotted horse, complete with a stuffed cowboy rider in the saddle...

Here's a hot dog...

And - drum roll please.....

The grand champion of the contest was this doberman pincher who was totally fabulous as a black dragon! Here you can see him from the back and get somewhat of a look at his wings...

Here he is from the front, along with a tiny pirate...

Being a former companion to a red doberman myself, I have a special place in my heart for dobes, and this one seemed especially sweet. He kept wanting to make friends with all the other dogs, and when he wasn't doing that he was snuggling up to his "dad."
As you can about imagine, we were grinning from ear to ear during this whole extravaganza. I'm so glad we happened upon the Howloween Festival!!!

So that's about all for the Honeymoon Four pics - at least for now. I still have a few finishing touches to put on the Honeymoon Four Travel Journal, and then I will post some highlights from that too.

In other news, the new song is at Scrapping The Music is "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson. It's a fun one - come on over and play along with us!

I will be back soon - thanks so much for visiting!!!
