Good morning everyone! My furkids have been super cute lately!
Mr. Jackson looks like an angel when he’s curled up in his kitty bed sleeping
Shelby was posing so sweetly as I took her picture
Penny loves to sun herself
One evening a gecko caught Jackson’s eye. Thank goodness that gecko was OUTSIDE!
Miss Penny also loves to chill out in the shade
And when she’s hungry and has to wait for breakfast, she looks so serious
On April 27th, it was Shelby and Jasmine’s Adoption Day! We adopted them from the Gulf Coast Humane Society 3 years ago. I can’t believe its been 3 years already! Just check out how little they were (squeal!) and how grown up they look now.
As a special treat, they received blueberry doggie ice cream and vanilla cookies. Yummy!
Hello everyone! I took a break from scrapbooking Christmas last weekend and instead, scrapped Thanksgiving! From 2018!
Blessed: I used Reminisce background paper; Bo Bunny banner and journal spot, Elle’s Studio blue word pattern paper, and a Freckled Fawn start paper Clip. Everything else – the polka dot paper, plaid paper, hedeghot sticker, cotton sticker and the leaf sticker are from a PhotoPlay Fall collection.
The design is based on this week’s Becky Fleck Sketch at ACOT:
Bless this Home: I used Bazzill cardstock; PhotoPlay pattern papers and pumpkin stickers; Bo Bunny banner and tree cluster (fussy cut from a journal tag) and Reminisce photo corners and word stickers.
Always Stay Humble and Kind: I used Bo Bunny papers and brads; a PhotoPlay raccoon sticker; Paper Studio denim washi tape and a Reminisce title sticker
Smile: I used Bo Bunny papers, die cuts, brads and chipboard embellishments; an Echo Park stencil; Thickers alphas and a Freckled Fawn gold doily. The gold paste is actually a combination of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold and Gold Stickles. I ended up making my own gold glitter paste.
Funny story about that gold glitter paste. Saturday night, I just couldn’t find my gold modeling paste or my gold glimmer/glitter pastes. I found my Nuvo drops, my stickles, my gold gelato, and my gold high impact tattered angels paint but no pastes. So I gave up. Came into my room Sunday morning and thought, well, I better make my own since stores are closed. I tried several mixtures but didn’t like the color (too dull) or texture (too wet). Until I stepped back and made it simpler. I used my Nuvo Drops in Pale Gold and my palette knife with my stencil then came over with it with my Gold Stickles and a soft brush. Let it dry and wholla! Very pretty. I actually prefer THIS over my regular stuff. LOL. Oh and guess what? As soon as I was done with my layout, guess what I found? My gold Glitter paste! Oh well.
The gold looks SO MUCH better IRL and it ended up being rainy and cloudy on Sunday so I couldn’t take a great picture. But here’s the close up:
Hello everyone! Hope everyone has had a great day so far. The fur kids have been super cute lately!
Shelby was getting a little needy one day last week and wanted me to take a break from work and hang out with her instead.
Such a BIG stretch!
Jazzy is a hoarder of toys, but its okay. They make amazing pillows!
We slept in last Friday since it was a Holiday and my husband had the day off. Jackson wasn’t amused and hung out with me while I brushed my teeth.
Penny napped while I did laundry
I was trying to make a card and Jackson had other plans.
I tried moving him and he got mad! He ran over to his chair next to me and grabbed my chair and tried to get me! LOL.
I ordered an Easter basket for the puppies from The Dog Bakery. It arrived Saturday afternoon. It came with a cute carob ducky cake, 2 easter egg cookies and a bag of treats. I added to it and got them another half dozen of cookies and a bag of jerky. A few toys from PetCo too. They enjoyed everything!
And last but not least, this is a crazy pic. Penny was sunning herself and I wanted to take her picture. But she got up and I got her in “mid-get-up” and she looks like an extra large corgi!
Good afternoon everyone. Yes, you read right. Christmas layouts in Spring! And its not even last years Christams photos either. Its 2018!
I chose to scrap Christmas because one of the items listed as a “Motivational Challenge” over at ACOT was to create a kit and make a few layouts and/or cards with it. I’m horrible with kits but I only have limited supplies in the Christmas Scrapbooking World. I have one 12×12 paper pad, a 6×8 paper pad, a bag of embellishments and a small container of washi tape.
And here is the kit I created:
And here are the layouts I created using that kit. I did 1 two pager and 4 singles.
Santa Baby: I used everything from my kit except I added some gold heat embossing
The next two layouts are from Christmas 2018, but I didn’t use very much from the kit because they are photos of my girls opening their Christmas presents. I ended up using the DCWV “Christmas Pals” paper stack and PhotoPlay “Muttcracker” collection.
I probably have about 4 more layouts I can do for Christmas 2018 and I’ll be done!
Hello everyone! Last weekend I managed to get 4 layouts completed and they were all for Jasmine and Shelby’s Puppy Photo Shoot from almost 3 years ago. And guess what? I completed the album AND have just bits/pieces leftover from the collection kit I was using – Doodlebug’s “Puppy Love”.
Love at furst sight: Design based on the Becky Fleck Sketch #166. Products used is Bo Bunny background paper and green pattern paper; Basic Grey yellow-orange pattern paper. Everything else is Doodlebug.
“Love You”: Combined two Graphic Design Rewind Challenges – use of Quotations and having no spaces between my title. I used Bo Bunny alphas, Basic Grey chipboard quotations, Jillibean Soup “today” sticker and the rest is Doodlebug.
Fun Times: Another layout submitted to the Graphic Design Rewind Challenge. This one was for “Trails”. I used Bo Bunny pattern papers, Doodlebug enamel dots and paper clips, Thickers, Suzy’s Zoo word phrase stickers, Forever in Time glittered paw prints and ball sticker. The doggie sticker near the title was from stash.
Its’a Dog Thing: I used The Paper Studio cardstock and “dog” sticker, Doodlebug pattern papers and enamel dots, Echo Park “BARK” cut out and alphas and Fancy Pants chipboard.
Good morning everyone! My furkids have been super adorable this week!
The big girls snoozing away on the couch
Last weekend they got some yummy duck necks!
I was scrapping on Sunday and Mr. Jackson decided he was going to snooze on my stuff. LOL.
On Monday, as I was getting dressed after my shower, Shelby came RUNNING to let me know about something. Jackson brought in a dove! I managed to get the dove back outside. It wasn’t flying as it had a wound on its back.
Last night, Shelby wanted Daddy to pay attention to her instead of what was on his laptop so she brought him a toy and dropped it in front of him!
Last but not least, I got a cute pic of sweet Jackson napping.
Hello everyone! With the stay-at-home orders we are all under, I managed to get some scrapbooking done. Yesterday I did 2 layouts and a card. One of those layouts is based on the ACOT Becky Fleck Sketch #165.
And this is what I came up with:
I used two photos instead of 4 smaller ones. Papers/tags are all from PhotoPlay, and the title/border sticker are from Reminisce.
