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! 🙂

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!

Good afternoon everyone. Hope everyone is staying cool inside and enjoying the weekend. My babies have been so sweet the last week.

Jackson LOVES his sister Jasmine! ❤ ❤

Shelby loves to just chill out on the couch

She also has no idea how big she is and loves to hang out and give her daddy kisses!

Yesterday we had my dad over for dinner and the girls enjoyed making him feel at home.

Last but not least, Jackson was ready for bed before we were.

Until next time, bark and meow on.

Good afternoon everyone! I hope everyone is staying cool from the brutal summer heat everyone is experiencing. My furkids are staying cool by staying INSIDE!

On Monday, I went into town to check out a brand new pet store here called Earthwise Pet. They had just opened up a few days ago and I’ve been anticipating on them opening. And they didn’t disappoint! They had tons of stuff – foods/treats, along with some alternative medicines (CBD oil for example). They had shirts, pet decor, essentials, food, treats, etc. They even have homemade dog cookies, dog ice cream and a doggie cookie and cake mixes available too. I know where I will go for my girls’ birthdays! They also have a small cat section too. They offer “spa” services too – nail trim, hair cuts, shampoos, etc. They reminded me of a smaller version of Dogologie. We have one in Fredricksburg (near Austin) and I really love going to that one. I bought Jackson a couple of new treats (he’s super picky) and for the girls, I picked up some dried duck hearts, CBD treats, sweet potato treats, no-hide peanut butter bones, 3 homemade cookies, peanut butter ice cream, cookie mix, and a shirt for myself.

Monday, they received each a cookie and a sweet potato treat. Jackson got some Alaskan Salmon bites. Everyone enjoyed their new treats!

Later that evening, Penny looked like she was giving up on the day. She was OUT!

Shelby appeared to be throwing in the towel by Wednesday morning! LOL

And last but not least, I gave the girls’ their no-hide peanut butter bones. It looks just like rawhide, but it isn’t. Its easy to digest and again, another treat that was a hit!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Good morning everyone! I’ve been MIA most of the month with staying busy with work and everything in between. I only have a few photos to share, but they are adorable, I promsie! 😉

While I was babysitting my nephew earlier in the month, Jasmine posed for me on the recliner. LOL, she was trying to get away from him! (P.S. He’s crawling!)

Shelby stopped playing long enough for me to capture this sweet picture of her.

Mr. Jackson loves to be outside so much, but now that its so hot and humid, he hangs out in the window.

After the girls get their breakfast, they’ve been going over to one of the extra-large dog beds to hang out together. Its sweet!

I had friends over this past weekend and they brought over dog treats! Penny wanted to see if there was more!

Speaking of friends, my girls sure do love Amanda! She was nominated to play tug-of-war with them!

And last but not least, Amanda couldn’t leave without giving Shelby some lovin’!

TFL! Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Good afternoon everyone! Another busy week here so I only have a handful of pics to share with you.

This past weekend, the girls got new toys. Miss Penny Lane wasn’t interested, but Jasmine and Shelby were happy about them!

A couple of days ago, I was munching out on some carrots and I had TWO beggars!

And lastly, Jackson loves hanging out by the gate. Even Miss Penny wanted to know what he was up to!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Good morning everyone! I’ve been a very busy bee with work, babysitting my nephew and hosting Mother’s Day one weekend and the following weekend a Gender Reveal for my brother and Sister in law. Whew! I need a little break! So what better way than to share some sweet photos of my furbabies.

One evening I found Penny sleeping, passed out on the couch with her tongue out. LOL

Shelby staring at me.

Earlier in the month, my husband was fixing the wood rot on a window and he had an audience supervising him all the way

Our ice maker was over flowing so we gave the pups some ice. Doggie Snowcones!

My 2 girls hanging out together on a dog bed

A story behind this photo of Jackson. Jackson brought in a lizard and dropped it off. I scooped it up and took it back outside. The look on his face is priceless! Not a happy kitty!

Last but not least, we celebrated National Rescue Dog Day this past Monday with Frosty Paws and special Rescue/Adopt cookies from The Dog Bakery.

Until next time, bark and meow on!

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.

The joy of having a cat who loves to hunt….sigh…

Until next time, bark and meow on! 😉

Good evening everyone! I know its been a while since I’ve posted but I’ve just been super busy with work and life in general.

Shelby and Jackson were “watchdogging” together in my office.

Miss Penny enjoying the outdoors


A couple of weeks ago, Jackson was hanging out with his sisters. It was so cute too. While they were napping or even chewing on a toy.

Shelby spied a kitty in our front yard.

Last but not least, the girls got their Super Chewer Bark Box and they enjoyed it!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Good evening everyone! Its finally SPRING here in South Texas and Miss Penny is ALL SMILES!

I was able to get into my Scrap room a couple of weekends ago and the 3 girls were passed out cold!

Jackson has been really sweet with Shelby.

Despite the girls being 2 years old, they are still closer than ever!

After breakfast, they like to hang out with Jackson. *Note* Shelby looks really goofy there. She is actually in mid-yawn

And last but not least, look at sweet Jasmine. Very lady like here.

Until next time, bark and meow on!
