Kids and Fur Kids

I just love my puppy's thinking face with her tongue out as she works out how to do something ... in this case how to get off the bed now that she is the extra height of the surfboard as well as the bed it seems a bit too high for her comfort.

I was trying to get my mind around an ARTastic challenge that was based on the famous painting 'Milking Time' which is a beautiful country theme and I laughed to myself, "the closest my city kids come to milking time in the country these days is feeding time at the zoo" .. which is what we have called our dinner table sometimes as well as the actual experience of popping out to the zoo for the day. As I laughed to myself about it I thought... what not? And from that my scrapbooking page idea was born. I also liked the composition of this painting with the way that everything in this picture is kind of grouped in one little chunk altogether with things sprawling out predominately to one side of that... which reminded me a little of the single page sketch that I saw at Stick It Down... it was almost like the page built itself after that... you know how it is some days when you are in the zone and everything is just flowing for you? Nice!
