Adorable Furbabies, November 14th

Good afternoon everyone. Last Friday, we celebrated Penny – she turned 7 years old! And boy did she have fun and get a bunch of treats and toys.

For the last ten years or so, I always take a picture first thing in the morning of the birthday girl (or boy). And here’s Miss Penny’s!

She got treats from Earthwise Pet and toys from PetCo

She loved us singing “Happy Birthday” to her, sharing her bday cake/ice cream and her toys.

Shelby continues to think she’s a lap dog. LOL. And of course, Jazzy wants to join in on the fun!

And Jazzy did! She got in the chair next to my husband and snuggled with him. She sure does love her daddy!

On Monday, our temps dropped from 80 to 35 and we woke up to a wind chill of 15. That is NOT South Texas weather in November. And Miss Penny gave Mother Nature a big ‘ol stink eye!

And to stay warm later that night, Penny snuggled in for the night with her blanket.

Until next ime, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, November 6th

Good afternoon everyone! Just a few pictures to share with you all.

Shelby never got the memo that she’s no longer a lap dog anymore. LOL. She’s starting to get into the habit (every day, at least twice a day) by climbing in my lap while I’m trying to work. She’s so silly.

The day before Halloween, we had gotten a cold front, dropping the morning temps down to the 40’s (with a wind chill of 31). That is NOT Penny friendly weather and she stayed inside, with a blanket to snuggle with.

Jasmine and Shelby being pretty girls:

Penny was OUT for the count by Saturday night. And yes, she was snoring!

My husband had to work a few hours on Sunday afternoon and Penny was waiting for him once it got dark.

And last but not least, Mr. Jackson relaxing, being Mr. Cool.

Until next time, bark and meow on. 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, October 29th

Hello everyone! Things are starting to slow down for me and that allows me to take time to post pics of the furkids.

Mr. Jackson LOVES his sister!

Mondays are Garbage Days and the girls love to watch out for the Garbage Truck!

Jazzy is all smiles! 🙂

We were quite chilly Saturday morning and it got the youngins hyper!

While the littles were playing, Miss Penny was snuggled up with her fave blanket.

I bought the girls a new bed at Earthwise Pets and Jazzy sure loves it!

I got up for just a minute and Jackson stole my chair!

And last but not least, Happy National Cat Day to Mr. Jackson.

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Scrappy Weekend Layouts

Hello everyone. Last weekend I got together with my scrappy girls for our quarterly crop at my house. I FINALLY finished the Gender Reveal for my 1st nephew and started the Baby Shower for him.

It’s a Boy! I used Chickaniddy Crafts and its based on the October Guest Designer Challenge #2 – Stretch the Sketch.

Baby Shower for Draven: I used Simples Stories alphas, enamel arrows by Freckled Fawn and the stickers/papers are PhotoPlay

Playing Games: I used papers/stickers from PhotoPlay and Cloud 9 Design for the alphas. Its for the ACOT Graphic Design Challenge. The hostess gave us several pizza ads to choose from and we can lift one of them.


TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, Oct 17th

Hello everyone! No time long see! Things continue to stay busy for me in every aspect of my life. I take pics of the furkids, just sometimes don’t have the time to share with everyone. This post will be a long one. 😉

A few weeks ago, we caught Jackson being super silly, playing with a dog bed. LOL.

Miss Penny had her annual exam and shots 2 weeks ago. Penny Lane gets super nervous when we go to the vet. Actually car rides frighten her. With the help of our vet, we are being more Proactive vs Reactive. A few years ago, it started with adding a calming collar she wears daily. Then calming ointment/spray. Last year it was calming chews daily. Now, she also gets CBD OIL. And boy did it help tremendously! She had no issues getting in the car nor did the car ride upset her. She still wasn’t a fan of getting out of the car and walking to the door, but once inside, she greeted the ladies at the front desk. She had no issues walking down the hallway to the exam room. She wasn’t happy when the tech had to check her vitals, but she didn’t even flinch when she got her shots. I can’t believe it! No whining, no shaking, nothing. Just chilling with some panting. When the vet came in, she was a little nervous, but settled down quickly. I was so proud of her!

When we came home, she and her siblings (including Jackson!) received a special treat — fro-yo!

Afterwards, I managed to get all three girls posing for me! These pics deserved to be FRAMED!

Miss Shelby being a Miss Squishy Face!

I worked late one night and all four of the furbabies waited patiently in my office.

Last weekend, both Penny and Jackson wanted ATTENTION!

I had my girls over for a scrappy weekend and Miss Shelby took NO TIME in saying HELLO to her favorite friend — Amanda!

And last but not least, as we were going to bed, Jackson and Shelby were napping together.

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Layout: Gender Reveal

Good afternoon everyone! I had some time this past weekend to scrap a little and I got a two page layout completed, featuring pics from the Gender Reveal Party from LAST year!

I struggled at first, trying to find the PERFECT papers since I wanted to use a collection that had both pink and blue papers. It was a toss up between PhotoPlay and Chickaniddy Crafts. And Chickaniddy Crafts won! I loved the colors and the different patterns.

Other products used were:

white cardstock: Bazzill
papers, alphas: Chickaniddy Crafts “Yippee” collection
flowers: Hobby Lobby
birds: Paper House Productions
bubble stickers: Heidi Swapp
enamel dots/hearts: Freckled Fawn
washi tapes: Queen & Co (yellow) and AC (pink)

I submitted this layout to ACOT’s 3 in a Row Challenge.

List

doily                     bling           Banner

flowers                 Bazzill        at least 3 patterned papers

butterfly              teal             leaves

I chose the middle row: Flowers, Bazzill (white cardstock for background) and at least 3 pattern papers (I have five)

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, Sept 19th

Good morning everyone! No time long see huh?! Just been super busy with lots of things, but that doesn’t keep me from taking pics of my furbabies!

Penny chose to sleep in one Saturday and I just had to take her picture!

We had my dad over for dinner one day and the girls gave him quite the greeting!

I actually made it to my scrap room for the first time in quite a while and Jackson decided to help me. LOL

I bought some dried turkey necks for the girls at Earthwise Pets and they LOVED them!

Penny LOVES popcorn and she made sure daddy knew she wanted some! LOL

And last but not least, Mr. Jackson, chilling outside

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Merry & Bright

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I did any scrapping and a couple of weekends ago, I actually did a layout. Its for ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge and I combined with the Sketch with a Twist Challenge. The Graphic Design challeng gave us a choice of some logos and we must only use those colors. The hostess also gave us a bonus where you can use any aspect of the logo itself besides the colors. The logo I chose was “Hello Kitty” and I chose to scrap about my kitty, Jackson, for the bonus.

Here is my layout:

As you can see, I used only black, white and red. Jackson loves laying under the Christmas Tree, so he got his stocking full of treats under there. He looks very pleased with “Santa Paws”. Christmas 2018

My layout is based on the following sketch, along with the “twist” (must use at least two tags. I used three):

My list of products is as follows:

background paper: Reminisce
“meow” washi tape: Doodlebug
cat die cut, “here kitty kitty” sticker, glittery red/white striped paper: The Paper Studio
chipboard shapes: Basic Grey
red washi tape with phrases: Recollections
“Merry & Bright” tag: Mambi
stocking: Paper House Productions
red/white tag: Echo Park
b/w tag: Canvas Corp

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, August16th

Good afternoon everyone! Its finally Friday and I have a few photos to share with you all. Mostly of Mr. Jackson, surprisingly!

When I’m busy doing something and Rob is sitting in his chair, Jasmine will steal mine. Check out that sweet face!

Jackson enjoys stealing Shelby’s ottoman

He also loves to hang out with Shelby when she’s in the office

Jackson snuck a lizard in the house and was being really sweet with it too.

I took the lizard outside and check out the stink eye! Boy was Jackson not happy with me!

Yesterday, the girls enjoyed some time in the shade

Until next time, bark and meow on!
