Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenge #3 Use an animal and the color orange!

Good morning and welcome to Scrapbookaholic By Abby's Challenge #3!!! I am so super excited with the response we got from challenge #2!  We had over 60 entries!!
 Thank you very much for entering our challenges!!

This week challenge #3 we have a fun challenge! If you happen to hop this weekend with me, then you saw that the ASPCA has their annual "Month against animal cruelty" this month!! and they encourage all of us to "Go Orange" to show support! So the theme is just that! Create ANYTHING you wish ( card, LO, album, any other altered item) and make sure you have an animal and the color in your project!

For my project, I decided to create a mini album. I got the instructions from Barbara, one of the talented designers from Treasure Box Designs. Click HERE for that tutorial! They are soooo super simple to create!!! and of course the cute puppy is from the "Pampered Pooch" pattern from TBD!!

and here are the projects from my talented AWESOME design team!!
