This week it was Char's pick and I must say I do really like these colours together. I decided to use on of my badly neglected Papertrey Stamps- Beautiful Blooms- I don't know why I just don't use this one much- especially these particular flowers in the set but...I did today.
All products are Papertrey with the exception of the dew drops!

The top photo is my Lola making her best attempt at a scary face- she was growling at the time.
These little darlings are Dash and Petunia- these are my Mom's miniature Donkey's and they are just over a year old and full grown- they are so stinking cute and Lola just loves them!!!
This gorgeous lady is Cici- this is Lola's horse, she is a Paint and is just over a year old as well. She has stunning blue eyes but I did not get a very good photo cause she moves so darn fast.
I have lots more to post seeing that my Mom has a zoo at her house...haha she also has 5 more full size horses and a Miniature horse too ..eck, I know that is a alot of horses!!!
