Bear’s Album

3 years ago, we lost our sweet Bear to DJD. We experienced ups and downs with her during that time period (6 weeks). I started on her 6X8 album back in March and I did 10 pocket pages over the weekend. They are from July 31, 2015 to August 21, 2015.

I’m using mostly Simple Stories project life cards, with cardstock from stash and embellishments by Sticko, The Paper Studio, and Forever in Time.

 

TFL!

Adorable Furbabies, Oct 4th

Good morning everyone! I only have a few pics to show you, and (surprisingly) are of Jackson. He’s been quite the ham lately.

Jackson was pre-occupied by Squirrely! Just look how close they were!

He also loves my flannel blanket. He’s so cute!

Last but not least, Miss Shelby! Always up for taking selfies!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, Sept 26th

Good evening everyone! The pups and Jackson have been super cute lately!

Last week, the sun finally came out long enough for the girls to sun bathe.

I went to HEB last week for groceries and found Chicken Fried Steak and Chorizo Bites dog treats by HEB Pets! As you can tell, the girls loved them!

The girls also got their Rescue Box for the month. This time, it was Back to School theme! Their fave toys? A backpack and a pencil!

Jackson discovered some tall grass and leftover chicken wire from where my husband pulled out a very dead avacodo tree. He loves the new hiding place.

Jackson also loves hanging out on the top of my car at night.

Last but not least, hubby was eating some ice cream and Penny was drooling away!

And she got to lick the container clean!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

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.

Cute Puppy - close up

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.

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!

A few layouts

Good morning everyone. This weekend was quite rainy, so I stayed in yesterday and did some scrappin’. Used up some old stash too! 😉

I’m on a short leash: Cardstock is Bazzill, pattern paper is DCWV

I'm on a short leash

Finding the perfect bone: Alphas are My Little Shoebox and pattern papers/stickers are Echo Park “BARK” collection

Finding the Perfect Toy

Friends Furever: The ribbons are from Oriental Trading, Bazzill, and Offray and the stickers are all from stash. I got the idea from a process video by Jen Schow. She has a complete series of “Use it or Lose it” and I only watched a couple of videos but now I’m hooked. She has one video dedicated to ribbon that I highly suggest you watch.

Our Dogs

I host the Pet Challenge each month at A Cherry On Top and this month’s theme is “Group Photo”.

Group usually means 3 or more, but in this case, I’ll say “more than one”. If you have multiple furbabies, this will probably be alot easier. At least one photo must be a group shot – 2 or more of your furbabies. But if you only have one, no worries. Do you have a photo of your children with the family dog? That counts. Do you have a photo of your DH holding 2 of your kittens? That counts too! And what if you do not have furbabies? A group of birds out on the lawn or some cattle as your drive by counts too.

Here is my example:

Our Dogs

A photo of Jeffrey, Ruby and Penny all together, August 2015. All the papers/stickers are from Authentique and the alphas are Bo Bunny.

Hope you can join us. A random winner will be selected to win a GC from ACOT!

TFL! 🙂

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! 🙂
