We Love Our Four-Legged Critters Album

Michelle Hahn here and I’m so excited to share with you an album that I’ve created for our four-legged critters.  If your animals are anything like mine, they are part of our family and they deserve an album of their own.  For this project, I paired the chipboard doghouse album and dog chipboard with the paper line from Authentique “Devoted” to create this story book.
