Daisy is 8 Today Scrapbook Layout

One year ago today, Aug. 6, 2014, I adopted/rescued a 7 yr old Lab/Retriever named Daisy. There was no record of her actual birthday so I decided to make her adoption day her birthday. 

Daisy is 8 today and I made this as part of a scrapbook layout that I'll use with photos from her birthday. 

Using my new Brother sewing machine my hubby got me I sewed her a bandana, scrunchie & a birthday headband scrunchie.
