Scrapbook of the week

this past week I got the scrapbook of the week award. you can only get it once every 3 months. it was my entry for the Fat_Fairies challenge
 the scrap also came in first in the challenge
i was quite surprised this page did so well. this would not have been my choice to win of pages i made this week as I think the cooper pages were much better but they scored so much lower. I wonder if people are getting tired of seeing my boy. even with doing him on my ct pages - i still average less than a third of my pages are with Cooper these days.

cool treats for cooper

currently going on at sbf is a Cool_Treats challenge. so I made this page of cooper having some of my shaved ice on a hot summer day. cooper loves his ice cream.

very surprised there are so few entries. personal photos are required but one would think people would have lot  of pics of their kids or grandkids eating ice cream. no old pages allowed.

here is an old page from 2009 of him eating ice cream:
I don't give him frosty paws any more. at that time it was the only option available but now i realize it is full of crap - lots of chemicals .etc. there are several healthy versions available in small pet shops. but the best thing to do is make your own version of frosty paws - so easy to do and so much cheaper. basically it is just yogurt - i use organic low fat plain yogurt , add bit of honey, vanilla extract and than choose you flavoring - peanut butter, banana, pumpkin, etc. last time i added watermelon to it.
