Challenge 20 - Furry Companions - Tuesday Alchemy

This weeks challenge "Furry Friends" with Tuesday Alchemy is going to be so much fun.  For those of you that know me - know just how special Hercules is and has been to me.  I have taken countless photos of him and made numerous albums through the years.  For this challenge I wanted to take a variety of photos from different stages of his life and make a simple 4" x 4" chipboard album.  

Have you seen the movie Benjamin Buttons?  Ironically Hercules seems to look younger the older he gets.  Sounds odd doesn't it??  To me he is the doggie version of Benjamin Buttons.  True?  I think so - take a look at the last photo and decide for yourself.    

So sit back and check out all the creations made by our design team.  And I hope after checking out all the blogs - you will decide to jump in and join us in this weeks challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create and share with us.  

Our spotlight artist this week is Nicole Chen from The Stardust Studio on Etsy. I must confess when I first came across her shop I was blown away by her talent and spent a lot of time checking out her artwork.  Amazing - isn't even a strong enough word to me.  Check it out and let me know what you think.  You can read all about The Stardust Studio on the Tuesday Alchemy blog.

"H" is for Hercules......

My best furry friend

I bought Hercules from a breeder in Northern Washington State.  It was love before first sight and he has been my companion for over 12 years now.  The night I brought him home he only weighed 1.5 pounds.  Now he weighs almost 5 pounds however his heart is so full of love the scale must be telling a lie.

My little Hercules has fans all over the world.  He has stolen the heart of countless people and made them smile.  He still melts my heart every day.  He has been a huge blessing in my life and I always say God made Hercules especially for me.  

This photo was taken about three months ago.  Some of the other photos in this album were taken over 7 years ago.
