Adorable Furbabies – July 13, 2018

Good afternoon everyone! Its been a hot week, so the pups have been staying inside, playing with their toys. Their NEW fave this week? A duck!

When they aren’t playing together, Shelby loves her squeaky tennis ball. She’s always up for some fetch!


Jazzy says HELLO!

Mr. Jackson has been staying inside alot more because there is a bird who keeps bothering him. It dives down and picks at him for no reason. Even while he is just chilling in a chair outside. The bird even bothered a squirrel who was minding its own business. We *think* it might be a mockingbird


With Jackson inside during the day, I’ve managed to get some sweet pictures of him. Napping. Playing with toys. Being silly.

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, July 6th

Good afternoon everyone! Let’s see what my furbabies have been up to lately!

Penny and Shelby were sharing “chew” time in my scrap room one evening. Very cute!

Shelby thinks life is ruff

Jazzy demands attention if there is a free spot in the chair next to you

Shelby very tired after a fun-filled doggie day

On Sunday, I spent quite a bit of time in my scrap room working on baby shower decorations/party favors. No problem says Penny. She’ll just chew on a bone

And when mommy needs to take a break, its selfie time with the Shelbster

Sweet Jazzy stops chewing on her bone to say HI

The girls were getting restless (it was nap time), and they played (quietly) together

After naptime, playtime outside! With the very large tennis ball

Miss Penny says Hello

Mr. Jackson turned TWO years old on July 3rd! He posed very sweetly for me, after breakfast

Hubby was out of town on business for a couple of days and the night he was to arrive, the puppies were waiting patiently for him. By the window. On the bed. Even on the laptop!

Jazzy wants to know “whatcha doing?”

Last but not least, when hubby came home, Jazzy made sure he knew she was his #1 girl!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Kitty Layouts

Good afternoon everyone! I did two more layouts showcasing my sweet kitty, Jackson. The pics were taken Jan 2017, so he’s about 6 months in them. ❤

Snooze’n: This layout is for ACOT’s Manufacturer Challenge where we are supposed to use up our stash. Collections or manufacturers you only have bits/pieces left. I chose Anna Griffin “Best in Show”. I have a few sheets of paper, 1 die cut and a few stickers. The clear title is by The Paper Studio and the pink ribbon is from Bazzill.


Leave Me Alone: I did this layout for ACOT’s Sketch with a Twist. I used the sketch Deanna provided, along with 2 flowers. I used Bazzill cardstock and papers/stickers from KaiserCraft, Reminisce and Karen Foster. Both flowers are from Prima.

Leave me Alone

These set of pics are so funny. Mr. Jackson was having some “cattitude”. He was pouting about something and flat out refused to even look at me. LOL!!

TFL! 🙂

Welcome to the Jungle

Good morning everyone! I have another layout to share with you, featuring Mr. Jackson.

When I saw these pics, the first thing that popped in my head was “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns ‘N Roses. And I took that song title and just ran with it! Which is perfect, as it fits ACOT’s Music Challenge (get inspiration from a singer/songwriter).

Welcome to the Jungle

I struggled a bit with the background at first, because of the shadows in the photos. But when I came across this glossy, black cardstock from DCWV, it seemed to work very well. The “green grass” is actually washi tape by Little B, and the punched out circles are DCWV too (The Pet Stack).

The alphas are Thickers and Bo Bunny, with the kitty stickers and word art from American Crafts (Remarks).

TFL! 🙂

Frisky Feline

Good afternoon everyone! I’m here to share with you a layout I’ve been working on all week. And its the first one in 2 months, since I’ve been so busy. Felt great to get creative!

I’ve been using my Cricut quite a bit lately. From cards to decorations for various events, so I decided to try my hand at using a cut file to enhance my background. I found an interlocking heart cut file made for the Cameo. I was able to convert it to PNG and upload it to my Cricut so I could use it. Once I had it cut out, I backed some of the openings with scrap paper. A little tedious, but I sure do love the look!


With 3 cute photos of Jackson and some embellies (mostly word art stickers), here is the finished product:

Frisky Feline

Everything is from my stash:
cardstock: Bazzill
pattern paper: American Crafts, Authentique, Bo Bunny, Basic Grey
stickers: 7 Paper, AC “Remarks”, ATD

This layout is for ACOT’s Movie Madness Challenge.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, June 28th

Good morning everyone! The furbabies have been super cute this past week!

Jasmine and Shelby STILL pose for me when they both want the same bone or toy.


Shelby was looking out the window, while Jackson was looking at the same thing, sitting on the outside of the window.


Shelby says HI and wants to play!

Miss Jasmine loves getting love from her Daddy. She has no clue how big she really is!

The girls had some fun and pulled stuffing out of a toy


On Monday, Jasmine posed with me for a sweet selfie!


Just look at that sweet face!


During snack time, I got a great shot of the girls looking at me


As I tried to strip the bed to wash bed sheets, Shelby wanted to play. LOL

Jasmine being sweet in Daddy’s chair

And last but not least, my sweet boy snoozing away after a day full of doing “kitty” things outside. LOL


Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, June 21st

Good afternoon everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA, just super busy with work and spending time with family.

Jasmine looks like she’s about to give up on the day


2 weeks ago, Jackson brought in a baby bird. I was not thrilled but at least nothing was broken and it was able to waddle away when I took it outside:

When I came back inside, Jackson was NOT pleased with me!


My mother in law came to visit for a few days and the babies had never met her. But I think they liked her. Alot!

Shelby has gotten into the habit of putting her toys in Penny’s dish. This time it was funny because she put her donut toy in the bowl! LOL

The girls enjoy playing tug of war on a stick. I just love their faces!

Penny was happy because the sun was shining!


Jackson looking smug!


These 2 girls were begging for attention!


And Shelby sure got it! Biggest. Lab. Dog. Ever

Jazzy says HELLO!


Shelby was sad because her ball doesn’t squeak anymore.

On Father’s Day, Jazzy snuggled with her daddy for a bit. It was so sweet.


Shelby is a happy camper chomping on some branches

Jackson was a happy kitty after breakast. Looks like he was ready for a nap!


Birdie is LIFE! Even with the rain, Jackson can be found sitting on the neighbor’s roof, watching a bird


Peek-a-boo! I see you Jackson!


Look at those cutie pies!


Once the rain subsided, the girls were out playing in the puddles!

And last but not least, what’s a kitty to do when you get almost 8 inches of rain dumped on you? You hang out in the house, laying whereever you want!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, June 6th

Good afternoon everyone! Just a few pics of the furbabies being what else…CUTE!

Jackson napping near Jasmine


After baths, the girls were giving me the “eye”


They were all smiles this weekend!


Despite being 140 lbs COMBINED…they sure do love to share toys


Mr. Jackson is staying “cool” by napping outside either in the shade OR at night…

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, May 30th

Good afternoon everyone! My furbabies have been super busy being super cute!

Peek-a-boo! Do you see Jackson?


Shelby is getting quite sleepy


Shelby wants Daddy to hold her bone for her while she chews. LOL

The babies STILL like to stay very close to each other

Shelby is curious to why my phone is making noise (I was playing music)


This past Saturday, the babies had their annual wellness exam/shots. Shelby weighs 67 lbs, and Jazzy weighs in at 74 lbs. Whew! Big big babies!

All was good except that Jazzy already has the beginnings of cataracts. She’s only 1 year a few months old. So we took her in Tuesday for an eye exam. She wasn’t too fond of the car ride without sissy


While Jazzy was at the vet, Shelby was wondering where her sister was. She spent alot of time with Mr. Jackson.


The eye exam showed nothing wrong with Jasmine’s eyes. Her cornea is attached. Blood vessels look great. All is good. So I brought her home and boy was Shelby very happy to see sissy!

And its about the same thing today. Not too far apart

And last but not least, I captured a sweet moment of Shelby watching Jackson sitting on the outside window sill, watching something outside. Very very cute!


Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, May 19th

Good morning everyone! The furbabies have been staying inside more, now that its starting to heat up here. They are STILL having fun though!

Jasmine and Shelby were playing tug of war with an alien toy, which was Jeffrey’s. Not anymore. Stuffing everywhere!

Mr. Jackson looking quite serious


Miss Penny is serious too!


Jasmine says HI!


And Shelby says “What’s up?!”

Jackson is starting to snuggle with Shelby now, during naptime. Its so sweet!


Shelby loves taking her morning selfies!


Begging for carrot sticks! And yes, they got some. Crunch, crunch, crunch!


No matter how big they get, they still love to share the same dog bed. (P.S. This was Jeffrey’s bed)


Miss Penny chewing on a Nylabone underneath the large tree in the back yard:

Hubby was late coming home one day, so Penny waited for him


And last but not least, Mr. Jackson was playing with the blinds. It almost looks like in the 2nd photo he’s saying “Ummm, excuse me, can I have some privacy here?” LOL

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂
