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.
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.
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. I did the March Rewind Challenge, going back to the Feb Technique Challenge. It was based on the 2 teams who went to the Super Bowl. I chose the RAMS and my letters are: R – Reminisce papers/stickers (Roll Over border; Sit Stay Roll over border, silly puppy word bubble) A- Adhesive M – Mrs. Grossman’s puppy sticker S – Shimmerz mist in Mustard Seed

Inseparable: I went back and did the Feb Color & Shape Challenge. I had use at least 3 of the colors in the prompt (I chose 2 shades of pink, along with white and black) and hearts. I have hearts on my pattern paper and a few small enamel shapes.
Products used on this layout –
papers, alphas: Bo Bunny doilies, pink and white enamel dots, pink enamel shapes: Doodlebug bling: Want2Scrap “love this” chipboard, “anything is possible” clip: MAMBI

(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!
Products used on this layout – Shimmerz paints/mists pattern papers, hashtag word art stickers, cell phone sticker: Echo Park chipboard, yellow paper clip, green alphas: Freckled Fawn “our happy place”, “love to laugh” chipboard: MAMBI green journal spots, die cuts: Jillibean Soup pink mini alphas: My Little Shoebox sweet alphas: Thickers triangle stickers, big deal sticker, tag: from stash
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”.
Good evening everyone! I worked on a couple of layouts over this past weekend, featuring Shelby and Jasmine when they were little (3 months old).
My first layout uses the brand new DCWV “Playful Pets” collection. This is for the Rewind Challenge over at A Cherry On Top. I went back and did the February Sketch with a Twist Challenge. The “twist” was to use something “puffy”. My “puffy” item is a camera sticker by Freckled Fawn. I also used Bazzill cardstock in Classic Yellow, alphas by Queen & Co and a Karen Foster “dog bowl” sticker. The washi tape is from my stash.
The second layout is of sweet Jasmine and Jackson snuggling together on a dog bed. I chose to do the Rewind Challenge again, this time doing the February Prompt Challenge. “Love is in the air” was the prompt. It had hearts, a sweet dog/cat image. I chose that for inspiration. I also had to use stenciling. I used a Heidi Swapp cascading Hearts stencil and CTMH ink.
My papers/chipboard are all Bo Bunny “head over heels” collection. I wrapped Doodlebug twine around the heart and added a few pieces of Glitz Designs gems. The clear word stickers – “My Best Friend” and “Adorable” are from The Paper Studio. Washi tape and paw print bling is from my stash
Good afternoon everyone! We started our week off with temps in the 30’s (wind chill got as low as 19!) That is DEFINETLY not normal for South Texas temperatures, and when I was taking Shelby and Jasmine outside, Penny was not having it. Here is a picture of her in her hoodie, on the couch, taken from outside:
We started to thaw out and by Wednesday, even Jackson was hanging out outside. Here he is up on our roof, being silly near the gutters:
Yesterday, I went to PetCo to get dry dog food and some treats. I saw these super cute toys (pizza and hamburger). I had to get them for the girls!
They LOVED them!
At the end of the day, I caught Jackson napping next to Jasmine. It was so sweet!
Good morning everyone! We had some rainy weather yesterday, so the pups and Jackson stayed inside. And Jackson was not a happy camper!
I was quite proud of Miss Penny Lane! She had no problems going outside to do her business in the rain and even ate her breakfast with no issues. When we first got her (6 yrs ago) and up to about 6 months ago, she was terrified of the thunder, rain, and even the SMELL of rain would have her running. But being pro-active with a calming collar that she wears 24/7, taking calming chews daily have helped. She hasn’t even worn her ThunderShirt in about 6 months. Yay Penny! She even hung out with the girls and I in the office, staring out the window. She also never used to do that either!
And last but not least, Jackson was being sweet with Shelby. They were sharing the big dog bed. Adorable!
Good evening everyone! No time long see! I’ve been so busy lately, I only have time to load pics of the furbabies. But I actually had some time yesterday to scrap. And it felt great!
This first layout is of our sweet Bear. Photos are about 5 years old. There was this small tree right by the house and Bear would pull the leaves off and eat them. Just like a koala bear; hence the title of this layout:
I used mostly Basic Grey (Origins collection – stickers, background paper) and Freckled Fawn (enamel dots). My alphas are by My Little Shoebox and I used my Cricut to cut out the circles. This is for a couple of challenges on A Cherry On Top. Rewind Challenge (January Book Lover’s Challenge – Option 2 (use one of the several sketches provided)) and Manufacturer Challenge (use B, E, and/or F).
Second layout is 3 of our 4 past dogs – Jeffrey, Bear and Lady.
The design is based on the sketch provided by Deanna for the January Sketch with a Twist Challenge (again, doing this for February Rewind Challenge). The “twist” was to use 10+ sequins. My quote die cut and pattern paper are PhotoPlay. Everything else is from my stash.
