Good morning - Welcome to our Friday challenges!  A new question or theme is posted every Friday at Pause Dream Enjoy. That's 52 projects in 2012 if you do them all!  We thought it would be a neat idea to make all 52 projects part of a mini album... a new page every week based on the question or theme. 

But you interpret this challenge any way you like. All forms of crafting are welcome! 

We are on Challenge No. 26 - yup, half way through the year already!  The question is:  Who or what has left footprints on your heart?  So let's incorporate footprints or paw prints on your project.
This week I decided to create a tag:

I used two Cricut cartridges on this tag:  Art Philosophy exclusively from Close to My Heart and Mickey and Friends.

Art Philosophy
Tag: page 60, D10, < Tag4 > cut at 5 1/2" and 6" - Elemental paper and Olive cardstock

Mickey and Friends
Paw print border:  page 37, C10, icon border, < Pluto3 > cut at 1 3/4" x 3 1/2" using the Fit to Length key - Desert Sand and Creme Brulee cardstock

That cute little terrier and the dog bones came from a little stamp set from Close to My Heart called " A Bowwow" (A1126).  I stamped the bones with Black Staz-On ink and the terrier with Brown Staz-On ink.  I first colored the body of the puppy with Desert Sand but I wanted it darker, so then I colored over it with Chocolate.  I colored the dog collar with Cranberry, his collar with Lagoon, and I used a Black marker to color in his eye and nose.

I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but I used an Adhesive Spring behind my puppy to make him "wobble."

If you can't read the quote I used, here it is:

"Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet." 
- Colette

Supplies Used:
Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge
A Bowwow (A1126)
