My girl...

So this is a picture of my dog, Li-Na when she was a puppy. She's a Chinese mini Shar-Pei, and has commanded our house with a regal presence since she consented to come live with us three years ago. Her name, which is Chinese, translates to "Beautiful and Graceful," both of which knows she is.

I had FUN combining some challenges for this one. The theme over at TGIF is dogs! The theme at Dans la maison is birds in winter (see the "Odd Bird Planet" stamped and embossed birds?) , and the theme over at
Art Creations is to use the beautiful background they provided (I used it to create a dog house for my girl Li-Na, adding gold peel-offs and a piece of red metallic ric-rac, just to make it a little more girly for her. lol)

The wintery background photo was taken a couple of weeks ago. It's a lake just down the street from where I live in Nova Scotia, where I take Li-Na to walk and play in the snow, which she loves to do.

Hope you enjoy my quirky concoction.
I sure enjoyed putting it together!
Thanks so much for visiting today.
