Lucky Us!

Happy Leap Day! I totally forgot this was a Leap Year until I started typing out this post. That made me curious and I went to the web to remind myself why we have Leap Years. Here’s what I found: Although most years of the modern calendar have 365 days, a complete revolution around the sun takes approximately 365 days and 6 hours. Every four years, during which an extra 24 hours have accumulated, one extra day is added to keep the count coordinated with the sun's apparent position. How cool is that?!

The layout I want to share with you though is in celebration of the next holiday in March – St. Patrick’s Day. I know all dog owners say it, but I really do believe we have the best dog and we’re so lucky to have found her. Of course, she leads a pretty pampered life as well! I pulled out some photos of our favorite dog, Baxter, in her shamrock bandana. Because I chose to use a busy patterned paper as my background, I thought my photos would show better if I matted them. I actually did a double mat on the photo on the bottom. I like how it turned out. That's my tip: don't forget about photo matting. It's an oldie, but a goodie!
