Adorable Furbabies, July 11th

Good afternoon everyone! Been extremely busy the last several weeks, so I only have just a few photos to share with you all.

The Dog Bakery was offering a Summer Barkecue Box that consisted of maple bacon ice cream, a beer can plush squeak toy, a giant hamburger cookie, a bag of barbque dog biscuits and a festive bandana. All the girls enjoyed the ice cream and cookie (chopped up of course) and playing with the toy. I had to get an extra plush toy so both Shelby and Jasmine could play with one.

They each posed for me beautifully with their bandana! Shelby was the one who wore it for a few hours. She didn’t want to take it off!

Until next time, bark on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, June 27th

Good morning everyone! I’ve been MIA most of the month with staying busy with work and everything in between. I only have a few photos to share, but they are adorable, I promsie! 😉

While I was babysitting my nephew earlier in the month, Jasmine posed for me on the recliner. LOL, she was trying to get away from him! (P.S. He’s crawling!)

Shelby stopped playing long enough for me to capture this sweet picture of her.

Mr. Jackson loves to be outside so much, but now that its so hot and humid, he hangs out in the window.

After the girls get their breakfast, they’ve been going over to one of the extra-large dog beds to hang out together. Its sweet!

I had friends over this past weekend and they brought over dog treats! Penny wanted to see if there was more!

Speaking of friends, my girls sure do love Amanda! She was nominated to play tug-of-war with them!

And last but not least, Amanda couldn’t leave without giving Shelby some lovin’!

TFL! Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, May 30th

Good afternoon everyone! Another busy week here so I only have a handful of pics to share with you.

This past weekend, the girls got new toys. Miss Penny Lane wasn’t interested, but Jasmine and Shelby were happy about them!

A couple of days ago, I was munching out on some carrots and I had TWO beggars!

And lastly, Jackson loves hanging out by the gate. Even Miss Penny wanted to know what he was up to!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Thanksgiving Layouts

Hello everyone! The first Saturday of May is (inter)National Scrapbooking Day and I played along with A Cherry On Top’s iNSD Crop. Lots of wonderful challenges and fun games all week long!

Here are the layouts I worked on for iNSD. All are Thanksgiving 2018.

Most of the pages used PhotoPlay “Fall Breeze” collection, with the exception of the last one (Elle’s Studio).

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, May 22nd

Good morning everyone! I’ve been a very busy bee with work, babysitting my nephew and hosting Mother’s Day one weekend and the following weekend a Gender Reveal for my brother and Sister in law. Whew! I need a little break! So what better way than to share some sweet photos of my furbabies.

One evening I found Penny sleeping, passed out on the couch with her tongue out. LOL

Shelby staring at me.

Earlier in the month, my husband was fixing the wood rot on a window and he had an audience supervising him all the way

Our ice maker was over flowing so we gave the pups some ice. Doggie Snowcones!

My 2 girls hanging out together on a dog bed

A story behind this photo of Jackson. Jackson brought in a lizard and dropped it off. I scooped it up and took it back outside. The look on his face is priceless! Not a happy kitty!

Last but not least, we celebrated National Rescue Dog Day this past Monday with Frosty Paws and special Rescue/Adopt cookies from The Dog Bakery.

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, May 1st

Good evening everyone! My furkids have been really cute lately, posing for the camera.

Shelby was posing nicely with her legs crossed. What’s funny is that her bone is standing up. LOL

Jackson has been hanging out with his sisters alot. Here he is laying by Jasmine.

Jackson was being extremely goofy yesterday and posed for me standing up at the gate.

And on to ANOTHER Jackson story. Jackson decided to bring in a bird today – a dove. I was walking down the hallway when he came inside with the bird in his mouth. I told him to go back outside, but he ran off to the living room. He released it, and the bird flew into my office, landing on top of my desk. I was in the process of texting my husband about it when he got spooked and tried escaping via my windows. The bird ran into them a few times before settling down into a dog bed. That allowed me to grab an old towel, pick it up and release it outside in the front yard. I checked it over and it wasn’t injured and it flew away. And FAST too.

The joy of having a cat who loves to hunt….sigh…

Until next time, bark and meow on! 😉

Using “Puppy Love” Doodlebug collection

Good morning everyone! I know its been a while since I’ve posted my layouts. Just don’t have a lot of time to create lately. So in a month, I’ve done 4 layouts. They are photos taken by my photographer friend back in May 2017. She did a photo shoot of Jasmine and Shelby along with the rest of us when the girls were only 3 months old. I’ve been using the Doodlebug “Puppy Love” collection for these photos and I only have just a few more photos to go.

Bow to the Wow: This was for my own Pet Challenge and Rewind Challenge (March Double Page Layout Challenge). I used Bella Blvd washi tape, Thickers and Simple Stories mini alphas. The shimmery cardstock is by the Paper Studio and of course, everything else is Doodlebug.

I Ruff You: This was the ACOT Becky Fleck Sketch and Graphic Design Challenge. The hostess put together a Rewind of her challenge from 7 years ago. I chose to do the “Objects as Letters” challenge, using a paw print for the “o” in my title. Cardstock is Bazzill and everything else is Doodlebug.

Majestically Beautiful: My photographer friend captured Penny’s true essence in these photos and that is why I chose the title I used. It’s for the Graphic Design Challenge – “Two font title”. My alphas are Cloud 9 Design and Simple Stories and my washi tape is Recollections.


Me & You: Another layout for the Graphic Design challenge – “Ampersand”. The ampersand had to be a different font, color, etc from the rest of the title. My ampersand was actually a pale glittery yellow and I misted it with some Tattered Angels lime green mist. I really like how it kept the glittery aspect. Its definetly different! I also used Bo Bunny cardstock and brown alphas, KaiserCraft veneer words, Freckled Fawn heart paper clip and Fancy Pants tiny alphas (on the banner). The pattern papers, washi tape, doilies, banner, twine, and enamel shape hearts are all Doodlebug.

TFL! 🙂


Adorable Furbabies, April 24th

Good evening everyone! I know its been a while since I’ve posted but I’ve just been super busy with work and life in general.

Shelby and Jackson were “watchdogging” together in my office.

Miss Penny enjoying the outdoors


A couple of weeks ago, Jackson was hanging out with his sisters. It was so cute too. While they were napping or even chewing on a toy.

Shelby spied a kitty in our front yard.

Last but not least, the girls got their Super Chewer Bark Box and they enjoyed it!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Just a few layouts

Good morning everyone. I managed to get a few layouts done over the weekend and would love to share them with you.

Its Playtime: I chose to cut my title using my Cricut, and backed the negative space with Reminisce “Its a Dog’s Life” pattern papers.

(Life is Short) Make it Sweet: I went back and did the Feb Music Challenge. I had to use a song title or lyrics with the word “sweet” in it. I chose to use Old Dominion’s song “Make it Sweet”. Photos are of Shelby and my friend Amanda taking selfies together. Shelby LOVES taking selfies and as you can see was trying to give Amanda a KISS!

We love to Create: This last layout is for the March Book Lover’s Challenge. We are given two options and I chose option #2, which was to use 3 different pattern papers, photos only in the top and bottom rows, with my journaling and title in the middle. Embellish any way you like and use any subject.

Photos were taken at our Summer Crop, 2018. Everything is Echo Park “I’d rather be crafting”.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, March 22nd

Good evening everyone! Its finally SPRING here in South Texas and Miss Penny is ALL SMILES!

I was able to get into my Scrap room a couple of weekends ago and the 3 girls were passed out cold!

Jackson has been really sweet with Shelby.

Despite the girls being 2 years old, they are still closer than ever!

After breakfast, they like to hang out with Jackson. *Note* Shelby looks really goofy there. She is actually in mid-yawn

And last but not least, look at sweet Jasmine. Very lady like here.

Until next time, bark and meow on!
