Melin, I LOVE your layout!  The little hearts on the paw-pads are adorable, and the colors are just gorgeous. 

Love Will Keep Us Together was a great song!  Did you know that at the end of the song when she's repeating Da Da Da Da, she snuck in "Sedaka is back"?  Neil Sedaka wrote that song!

Thanks for the free file!  Can't wait to use it!
