I've been having a ball all week working on a mini album of our first cruise last December (practice run for a larger one to do of our 7 day Alaska cruise earlier this month), but these great photos my daughter April took of her dog meeting our new little Chihua pup in August have been screaaaaaming for me to scrap them, so I did. I just converted the photos into b&w and kept it simple with some BG Boxer pp and shiny black Thickers. The chipboard flourish was inked black and clear embossed to match. My lss carries every color of the rainbow in embossing powder EXCEPT clear and here's my philosophy--who the heck needs all those colors if you already have lots of colors of ink pads? Clear works great PLUS if I mess up and there are any stray bits of powder, they're clear and don't really show. Anyway, here's Griffin meets Nimby and a sneak peek of my cruise mini album.

Have a terrific day!
