Adorable Furbabies, Sept 19th

Good afternoon everyone! I hope everybody is able to dry out after all the rain that got dumped on us here in South Texas. Speaking of the rains, Jackson was none too pleased when it was raining:

Penny was equipped with her ThunderShirt for most of Friday and Saturday:

On Saturday afternoon, I popped some of the Yaky Charms I had bought for the pups from the Rescue Store.

They sure did love them!

The rain finally stopped on Sunday and by Sunday afternoon, Penny found a small area of dry concrete to sun herself

With it being a very rainy weekend, I stayed in and scrapbooked. My little buddy, Jackson, by Sunday night, just couldn’t hang anymore. LOL

On Tuesday, I captured Jackson “coming home”:

And last but not least, Jackson was up in the tree, squirrely hunting (if you zoom in, you’ll see the Squirrel on the 2nd branch from the bottom, left side)

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Puppy layouts

Good afternoon everyone! Hope everybody kept afloat during our heavy rains over the weekend. If you were located on the Central East Coast, hope you stayed safe during the Hurricane.

With all the heavy rain, we stayed home. What’s a girl to do? Scrap, of course! And here is what I worked on:

Good Dog: I just recently got the Kiwi Lane “Pet” collection, which includes papers and templates. I really enjoyed using this kit to create this two pager of Bear

Good Dog

The die cut title and doggie were from my stash. The title was even already colored that way. It matches perfectly! Here are close-ups:

A Home without a cat is just House: I mixed and matched Echo Park dog and cat collections to create this fun layout featuring Penny and Jackson playing together. Twine is from Doodlebug and journal spot is from my stash.

A Home without a Cat is just a House

Cute Puppy: Since I had all my Echo Park dog stash out, I used it to create this two pager of sweet Penny Lane, back in Feb 2014. I had gotten a new camera and she was posing for me!

Cute Puppy

The left page includes washi tape from Queen & Co and the “beg” sticker from Karen Foster. The little white word stickers are from 7 Paper

Cute Puppy - left

The second page includes more of those 7 Paper stickers, and a Karen Foster fire hydrant sticker. The washi tape is unknown manufacturer.

Cute Puppy - right

The chipboard house has been in my stash FOREVER. Its from Maya Road and I covered it with yellow Bo Bunny cardstock. The little doggie is fussy cut from one of the cut apart sheets in the Echo Park “BARK” collection.

Jeffrey: I used up an old 6×6 MME paper pad to create my background, layers behind the photos, the photo mats and even fussy cut the arrows! The puffy stickers are from Bob’s by Sketchers — yes, you read right! Sketchers!  A little story about those stickers. I went to the Sketchers at our local outlet Mall back in June and got some really cute sneakers that had doggies all over them! I love them! Anyways, inside the shoe box was a small package of stickers! Cute, huh?

The blue alphas are from Cloud 9 Design.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, Sept 12th

Good afternoon everyone. Pups haven’t been able to really enjoy the outdoors for a while. Either its raining or the mosquitos are beyond horrible. So inside playtime it is!

Last week, during a storm, I passed out bully sticks for everyone. First time having them as they received them from their rescueBox last week. They loved them!

Penny is exhausted! She loves her daddy’s pillow best!

As I was taking pics of Penny, Shelby posed for me. Just look at those eyes!

Shelby also thought it was lap time while I was in the middle scrapbooking. I think she approved of my layout!

One night while hubby and I were watching TV, we noticed the weird position Shelby was lying in on the bed. LOL!

We were gone most of the day on Saturday. I think Jazzy missed her mommy!

They are cute, even while watching me eat. LOL

Jazzy says HI!

20180910_181523

So does Shelby!

20180907_124135

Yesterday their goodies arrived from the Rescue Store!

20180911_124448

They sure did love those sweet potatoe bacon maple chews!

With all this rain, Jackson has been inside. He doesn’t look very happy about the whole ordeal.

20180907_125631

Last but not least, Penny saw Squirrely! And what a shot I got too!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, Sept 5th

Good afternoon everyone! My pups have been enjoying lots of love and fun new toys/treats. They received their first box from Rescue Box. They loved all the toys!

Penny says HELLO!

20180829_190934

Whatcha doing?!!

20180829_190941

Our local grocery store, H-E-B, had a really good deal on cleaning supplies. Either by Swiffer Duster refills or Swiffer Sweeper refilles (I actually needed to buy both…lol), you get one Hartz dental bone for FREE. Penny won’t chew on them, so the two were perfect for Jasmine and Shelby.

We had some family staying over this past weekend and my brother’s dogs sure do love my Aunt!

20180901_122437-COLLAGE

Jackson doesn’t like it when we have company, so when people left, he made sure I knew he wasn’t a happy kitty.

20180902_210121

Because we’ve had alot of people coming/going and staying the night and weekends are not routine anymore, I spoiled the girls with new toys!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, August 29th

Good afternoon everyone! I have a few pics to share of the fur kids today.

Jasmine enjoying sunning herself:

Jackson found himself a lizard and was trying to make “friends” by rubbing himself against it

Thurdsay we had the a/c tech for our Summer Checkup. I put the girls in my office and Shelby popped her head to say HI!

20180823_094818

While in my scrap room, the girls were posing very sweetly (you wonder what they are up to, huh?)

20180824_181839

Jackson watching the girls run around the yard from the top of the fence

While watching a show on Animal Planet, Shelby stopped playing to watch the doggie run

Sunday was National Dog Day. Love my girls!

Before I go, today is a day of rememberance for DH and I. 3 years ago, we lost our sweet baby Bear to DJD and 8 years ago, we lost my childhood kitty Princess. Its crazy how they both passed on the same day as they were also best friends. Princess would snuggle with Bear on cold days and Bear would give Princess kisses. Even as Bear was crossing over, DH bent down, kissed her head and whispered, “Your kitty is waiting for you”. Sweetest thing ever!

So in honor of both Princess and Bear, here are a couple of pics of them snuggling on the bed. These are from 2009

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, August 21st

Good afternoon everyone! I’ve got some cute pics of the girls and Jackson from the past week.

The girls enjoying sharing a branch

Its ruff being cute!

Shelby posed for me, right before it looked like she was going to sneeze.

Mr. Jackson ready for bed

The girls have taken over the couch!

Jackson was bird watching one day.

Shelby “strikes a pose” while snoozing

Taking some selfies with momma

And last but not least, Shelby not knowing how big she truly is! Pyradors are the biggest lap dogs ever!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, August 14th

Good afternoon ya’ll! The furbabies have been super cute lately!

Jackson was playing hide-go-seek under the doggie’s elevated dish.

He also was quite proud of himself when he brought in a lizard!

Friday, Shelby was relaxing with Penny on our bed. It was really cute to see them look so sleepy!

Over the weekend we went over to Hubby’s aunt’s house. Freddie says HELLO!

Hubby brought home some palletts from work and Jackson thinks its all for him.

Yesterday Shelby wanted to take a selfie

Penny was yawning when I snapped this pic

Jazzy says Hello!

Last night, Jazzy wanted to snuggle with her daddy. She doesn’t know how big she is! LOL

And when one gets belly rubs, the other one wants some too!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

 

Using up my stash

Good afternoon everyone! This past weekend I ended up doing 4 layouts and TWO were two pagers. I also chose to use up older stash. It worked well two weekends ago, and I even used up little stickers here/there that were in a small basket sitting on my desk.

Lazy Bones: Other than cardstock background, all the papers were in my notebook of scraps. The stickers/die cuts were in the little basket. Washi tape was on hand as well.

Lazy Bones

Lucky Dog: Papers are by DCWV, brads are WRMKs and sticker is by Anna Griffin, and the last one on the sticker sheet too! Lucky Dog

Game Over: More DCWV pattern papers and all stickers came from my little basket. Alphas are super old too.Game Over

It’s a Cats Life: DCWV pattern paper, Creative Imaginations stickers with Anna Griffin kitty face stickers. Even used a stencil with modeling paste mixed with ink.

Its a Cat's Life

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, August 7th

Good afternoon everyone! The pups had a great time having my friends over at the house for the weekend, especially Shelby! Jackson was scarce, BUT, I did get super cute pics of him outside the day before everyone showed up.

Shelby will do ANYTHING for a tennis ball!

20180803_174132

Speaking of Shelby, she sure does love Amanda!

Shelby also loves taking selfies!

And posing

When everybody left, Shelby was exhausted!

And before bed last night, she spent some time chewing on a rope.

Until next time, bark and meow on!
