May 2020 Layouts

Hello everyone and no time long “see”! This month has been a busy one and I figured I’d share with you the layouts I’ve created this month by posting them all together.

To start with, Saturday, May 2nd, was National Scrapbooking Day (NSD). There were online crops, challenges, games and blog hops galore! A Cherry On Top hosted a FABULOUS NSD crop and it lasted THREE days! At last count, there were a total of 42 challenges! 42!! I only did about a handful since they were due within one week. But one of our regular members is hosting a REWIND NSD Challenge where you can complete the ones you didn’t get to do.

I’ll show you the ones I did for the actual NSD, then I’ll post the ones I’ve been working on lately for the REWIND challenge. We do have until the end of the month! So I might be able to squeeze in one or two! Who knows!

I did a variety of layouts too – my nephews, furbabies, nephew’s 1st birthday and meeting my bio father/family for the first time.

In no particular order….


After NSD festivities were over with, the girl in charge of the Rewind challenge created an NSD Rewind Challenge. So here are those layouts that I’ve been able to work on throughout the month.

We have until Sunday, so I’m hoping go get a few more done. Wish me luck!

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, April 30th

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!


And last but not least, can you see Jackson?

He was birdie watching!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, April 14th

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!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, April 3rd

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.

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, March 26th

Hello everyone! I have another round of cute pics of the furkids!

When I go on my morning walk, sometimes I’m greeted by a kitty. Don’t know her name, but I’m tempted to bring her home!

Sometimes after a full day of staying busy, I find Penny passed out like she worked hard too!

Mr. Jackson being Mr. Cool

He’s pretty cool when he is napping on my chair too

Shelby is starting to STARE at you to get you to do what she wants. Just look at that sweet face!

Jazzy likes to pop her head up to see what you are doing

At 3PM, Shelby got my attention, informing me that all dogs must go outside.

And what do they all decided to do? Sunbathe!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, March 17th

Good afternoon everyone! With everything going on in the world today, hope my furbabies can put a smile on your face.

Two weekends ago, my husband had to go into work for a few hours. And Shelby was waiting on him.

Later that day, I caught Miss Jazzy looking so pretty right before her eye lids shut.

And then Jackson was a total HAM!

My husband was working on trying to find the valves to our backyard sprinklers. The girls were supervising while he was digging.

Last week, the girls’ order from the Dog Bakery showed up. It was their “Junk Food” collection!

Something caught Penny AND Shelby’s eye down the cul de sac. What was cute was that they were sharing a bed!

Mr. Jackson looking chill under the car

It was a beautiful day Saturday and Penny took advantage of it to sun herself

And last but not least, we were working on our taxes Sunday afternoon and Shelby decided that it was time to take a break! LOL

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, March 6th

Good afternoon everyone and TGIF! This sure has been a long week, but at least the furkids were cute!

Last Friday, we woke up to the upper 30’s and Miss Penny went back to bed after breakfast. Good idea Penny!

It was too cold for Jackson to be out and about that he napped most of the day in his kitty bed.

On Sunday, while I was doing laundry, Miss Penny could care less and napped the day away.

On Monday after breakfast, I was able to snap this sweet photo of Jasmine, Shelby and Jackson together!

Jazzy says HI!

Last but not least, I saw this kitty on my morning walk Wednesday. Looks just like Jackson, just bigger!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, February 27th

Good afternoon everyone! Wanted to share with ya’ll a few pics of the furbabies.

This month has been fairly mild with a few sporadic “cold snap” days! Anything below 50 degrees. Penny doesn’t care for the cold, so she has a hoodie that she loves to wear.

I was in my scraproom for a little while on Sunday and Miss Shelby preferred I pay attention to her and not my layouts.

On Monday, the girls were SO hyper, they managed to move an XL dog bed over before they passed out cold!

And when Jackson came in after spending the day outside, it appears that he couldn’t even make it to a bed!

Last but not least, as I was getting dressed this morning, I managed to capture a great shot of Shelby holding her large ball. Too cute!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Layout: Best Friends

Hello everyone! This next layout features Mr. Jackson hanging out with li’l Shelby a few years ago. And when I say “Little Shelby”, I mean 3 months old!

Aren’t those the cutest pics ever! I used Kiwi Lane pattern papers and even fussy cut the “I want to MEOW with you forever” heart. I used a cut file and backed some of the hearts with scraps from the KL collection I was using. The alphas, veneers, die cuts and stickers are from a variety of Jillibean Soup collections.

The layout is based on one of the Valentine’s Day Challenges over at ACOT – Hearts! And I had to use at least 10 of them. As you can tell, I used a variety of hearts – from a cut file to veneers, die cuts to enamel shapes and stickers.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, February 18th

Hello everyone! I have tons of new pics of Mr. Jackson and Miss Penny!

Penny, for some reason, decided to jump in Jackson’s kitty bed and just chill out! LOL. She even stuck her tongue out at me! Silly girl!

Last Saturday was really nice and sunny (still a bit cool) and Jackson was listening to all the birds while sitting on top of the swing. LOL.

Jackson decided to get a closer look, so he got into his tree.

Penny sure does love her daddy! ❤ ❤

We watched the American Rescue Dog Show on the Hallmark channel the last 2 nights and Shelby was watching it too!

Right before bed, Shelby popped her head up to say HI!

And last but not least, Mr. Jackson relaxing under my chair in the bedroom.

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂
