I was so excited to see that Edi from Memories For Life Scrapbooks was chosen to be the EtsyBlogger of the month! Why? Because I had just finished putting photos in a beautiful Custom Word Album that she made for me and couldn't wait to share!

I had purchased a word album from Edi as a gift for my husband to put in photos of our first dog together (and his first dog ever!). Midnight was a black chow mix and had a red collar so I just asked her to use the colors red and black and this is what she made!
She customized it further by putting in her name, her birthday and the day she crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We lost Mitty too soon to tongue cancer.
Edi put cute little embellishments in it such as quotes...
and stickers. There's room for 16 photos in this album and although it was hard going through all of Midnight's pictures, it's wonderful having them in such a cute album that we can enjoy and see her smiling face! And remember the funny things she did like sit in the planter at the edge of the deck.
She loved to travel so I had to include a photo of her and her daddy at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. We both love the album, thank you so much Edi! Be sure to check out her shop and her blog for more of her great work! She certainly helps you create Memories for Life!

That's really a nice photo scrapbook.

It is hard to go back and look at old photos of pets we have lost.

Well Sharla - this blog brought both a smile and tears. There are so many wonderful memories of Middy. I loved it when she would ride in Daddy's small pickup. You could hardly see Daddy. She loved to go to the bank with Daddy. They always gave her a treat.

What a beautiful post, gift and wonderful share with all of us.

She really was a beauty. It's so very hard to lose a pet I know I have lost a few in my life time.

My daughter lost her precious Misty a little over a year ago after 19 years. She was devastated!!

Thank you so much for stopping in and checking on me. I am still not 100% but I am feeling so much better!!

Thanks for this wonderful post also and sharing this beauty and your memories with us!!
