Filou and the shoelace

Welcome everyone

 Our new theme at Our creative corner in this month hosted by
our new very creative Jan is

 What makes you smile ? :-)?

Close your eyes for a few minutes, relax and think about something that makes you smile..............
It could be a special person, a favourite place, a quote, an incident, the list is endless!
our June challenge is to create something that will make us smile, it could be a scrapbook or journal page, a canvas, a tag, whatever your imagination dictates.

My first thought to this theme was my dog for many years. 
As he was a  puppy he had always fun to pull out the laces from our shoes.
He no longer does this, but it is always something new thought out, it never gets boring ;-)!
