Good afternoon everyone! Been extremely busy the last several weeks, so I only have just a few photos to share with you all.
The Dog Bakery was offering a Summer Barkecue Box that consisted of maple bacon ice cream, a beer can plush squeak toy, a giant hamburger cookie, a bag of barbque dog biscuits and a festive bandana. All the girls enjoyed the ice cream and cookie (chopped up of course) and playing with the toy. I had to get an extra plush toy so both Shelby and Jasmine could play with one.
They each posed for me beautifully with their bandana! Shelby was the one who wore it for a few hours. She didn’t want to take it off!
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.
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.
Good morning everyone! I know its been a while since I’ve posted my layouts. Just don’t have a lot of time to create lately. So in a month, I’ve done 4 layouts. They are photos taken by my photographer friend back in May 2017. She did a photo shoot of Jasmine and Shelby along with the rest of us when the girls were only 3 months old. I’ve been using the Doodlebug “Puppy Love” collection for these photos and I only have just a few more photos to go.
Bow to the Wow: This was for my own Pet Challenge and Rewind Challenge (March Double Page Layout Challenge). I used Bella Blvd washi tape, Thickers and Simple Stories mini alphas. The shimmery cardstock is by the Paper Studio and of course, everything else is Doodlebug.
I Ruff You: This was the ACOT Becky Fleck Sketch and Graphic Design Challenge. The hostess put together a Rewind of her challenge from 7 years ago. I chose to do the “Objects as Letters” challenge, using a paw print for the “o” in my title. Cardstock is Bazzill and everything else is Doodlebug.
Majestically Beautiful: My photographer friend captured Penny’s true essence in these photos and that is why I chose the title I used. It’s for the Graphic Design Challenge – “Two font title”. My alphas are Cloud 9 Design and Simple Stories and my washi tape is Recollections.
Me & You: Another layout for the Graphic Design challenge – “Ampersand”. The ampersand had to be a different font, color, etc from the rest of the title. My ampersand was actually a pale glittery yellow and I misted it with some Tattered Angels lime green mist. I really like how it kept the glittery aspect. Its definetly different! I also used Bo Bunny cardstock and brown alphas, KaiserCraft veneer words, Freckled Fawn heart paper clip and Fancy Pants tiny alphas (on the banner). The pattern papers, washi tape, doilies, banner, twine, and enamel shape hearts are all Doodlebug.
Good evening everyone! I worked on a couple of layouts over this past weekend, featuring Shelby and Jasmine when they were little (3 months old).
My first layout uses the brand new DCWV “Playful Pets” collection. This is for the Rewind Challenge over at A Cherry On Top. I went back and did the February Sketch with a Twist Challenge. The “twist” was to use something “puffy”. My “puffy” item is a camera sticker by Freckled Fawn. I also used Bazzill cardstock in Classic Yellow, alphas by Queen & Co and a Karen Foster “dog bowl” sticker. The washi tape is from my stash.
The second layout is of sweet Jasmine and Jackson snuggling together on a dog bed. I chose to do the Rewind Challenge again, this time doing the February Prompt Challenge. “Love is in the air” was the prompt. It had hearts, a sweet dog/cat image. I chose that for inspiration. I also had to use stenciling. I used a Heidi Swapp cascading Hearts stencil and CTMH ink.
My papers/chipboard are all Bo Bunny “head over heels” collection. I wrapped Doodlebug twine around the heart and added a few pieces of Glitz Designs gems. The clear word stickers – “My Best Friend” and “Adorable” are from The Paper Studio. Washi tape and paw print bling is from my stash
Good afternoon everyone! We started our week off with temps in the 30’s (wind chill got as low as 19!) That is DEFINETLY not normal for South Texas temperatures, and when I was taking Shelby and Jasmine outside, Penny was not having it. Here is a picture of her in her hoodie, on the couch, taken from outside:
We started to thaw out and by Wednesday, even Jackson was hanging out outside. Here he is up on our roof, being silly near the gutters:
Yesterday, I went to PetCo to get dry dog food and some treats. I saw these super cute toys (pizza and hamburger). I had to get them for the girls!
They LOVED them!
At the end of the day, I caught Jackson napping next to Jasmine. It was so sweet!
