NSD Layouts

Good morning everyone! I know it’s been awhile and the past month has been super busy.

May 1st was National Scrapbooking Day and I ended up playing at A Cherry On Top during the festivities. I was also honored to be a hostess for a two hour block on NSD too! I offered two challenges – a Fashion Challenge and a Pinterest Challenge with a Twist. My fashion challenge was based on a Mood Board that I supplied and scrapbookers had to choose at least 3 items that inspired them.

And here is how I was inspired by it:

1. True Friends as a title, with a hint of gold (washi tape, alphas, and the doggie paper clip).
2. The nails (middle photo) – browns and teal, bones (border sticker), paw prints (stickers) and “woof” (washi tapes).
3. lacy leggings (doily)

My second challenge was to choose a layout to scraplift or a sketch to use from Pinterest and the TWIST was to use ONLY products that are from manufacturers who are no longer in business. And for me, that means BASIC GREY! Freebies were any and all tools (punches, die cutting, etc) and inks.

I chose this layout to scraplift:

And this is my take on it:

For the twist, I used LOTS of Basic Grey – papers, rub ons and chipboard pieces, along with alphas and other stickers. I also used Zva Creative bling for the centers of the butterflies.

For the following week, I would do at least ONE layout per day (during the work week) with 3-4 layouts per weekend day. Here are my creations:

There were SO Many challenges that I didn’t even get to do, but I did 12! That’s a new record in my book!

TFL! 🙂

TFL!

Adorable Furbabies, April 23rd

Good afternoon everyone and TGIF! Today’s post should be called Adorable Jackson, as its all about him! With the exception of one photo of Miss Penny.

He LOVES sleeping on my blanket that I keep on the couch. *YAWN*

He brought in a bird Tuesday:

And when I took the bird outside (in the front yard), moments later, I walk into the backyard to see him peeping over the neighbor’s fence! LOL

Miss Penny was exhausted last night!

And last but not least, Jackson brought in a beautiful blue bird. Hubby was able to pick it up and let me take a picture of it before taking it outside. Luckily it flew it off immediately:

Moments later, Mr. Jackson is back outside. This time, he’s lounging in a chair, contemplating his next move.

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, April 16th

Hello everyone and TGIF! The furkids sure have been hamming it up lately.

Jasmine and Shelby posing together

Later that day, Shelby was over it.

Jasmine was telling me all about it, then dramatically layed down

Shelby says HELLO

Shelby wanted to chew on a bone, but was too lazy to get it out of the basket. LOL

This belly ain’t gonna rub itself. Jazzy says will you rub my belly?

I was in the laundry room and Shelby poked her head out the doggie door

I had a horrible migraine on Tuesay and I had the most wonderful nurses

And last but not least, Jazzy wants her chest scratched too!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

My sweet Penny Lane posing pretty, November 2020.

Close-ups of each section.

Hello Spring: For this layout, I used “Forever Young” by Bo Bunny.

My sweet Jasmine. 🙂

My inspiration came from the Mood Board Challenge. We were to use at least 2 colors and 3 other items that trigger inspiration.

I used all the colors, and was inspired by the flowers, the cactus, and the “Hello Spring” in the middle.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, April 7th

Good morning everyone! The pups have been enjoying the fresh air, warmer temps and had a wonderful Easter filled with treats and toys!

Isn’t this the CUTEST picture ever??!

Easter basket filled with jerky, mini lamb bites, interactive puzzle toy, cookies and a mini cake from the Dog Bakery. Other toys from Chewy.com

Sweet Jazzy sitting pretty in our recliners.

Mr. Jackson claiming the penguin toy as his own.

I ordered some “muttkins” from Annie’s Pooch Pops. They are beef femur bones, filled with marrow and a peanut butter cookie wrapped around them. The girls enjoyed them! ALOT!

I caught Jackson being crazy! He actually HISSED as I took this picture!

Last but not least, Miss Penny Lane scratching her back on a patch of grass. LOL.

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, March 24th

Good afternoon everyone! The weather is warming up and the furkids are loving it! They are either sunning themselves or rolling around in the leaves.

Snapped a sweet picture of the Jasmine and Shelby.

Hubby was trying to fix my computer in my scrap room and the girls supervised.

Both Shelby and Jasmine staring at me to get what they want. Shelby wanted to go outside; Jasmine wanted love.

When the weather is nice, Shelby loves to run and chase after her tennis ball.

I had gone to Earthwise Pets last week to stock up on their fave snacks. They sure love those Crinkle Canines and Black & Whites!

While I was outside with my husband, Shelby and Penny were watching us from the front door.

And last but not least, my furbabies passed out in my scrap room. I guess I wore them out! 😉

Until next time, bark and meow on!

March Layouts

Hi everyone! I managed to get 3 layouts done last weekend.

Happy: A selfie of me with my scrappy friends last summer. I used Amy Tangerine and Jen Hadfield papers; a Basic Grey brad; Prima flowers; Kaisercraft title and word art stickers; and Doodlebug twine. The tags were made from a template using up some scraps.

I used the following sketch at ACOT:

Let’s Taco ‘Bout It: I used Bazzill cardstock; Doodlebug pattern papers, washi tape and enamel shapes; Jolee’s tacos/hot sauce packets; and Moxxie alphas. That avacado sticker? Found at H-E-B in the party section during Cinco de Mayo!

Journaling: Six months after only able to go through the drive-thru of our fave Mexican Restaurant, they were finally open for dine-in. The food was better than ever. The salsa was spicy; and the chips were crispy. We were in HEAVEN! Sept 25, 2020

Be a Dreamer – Follow Rainbows: Once I had taken photos of Penny wearing her PJs, I’ve started to “collect” anything scrappy in the rainbows and unicorns dept. LOL. This layout features her wearing them in mid-December last year. The papers/stickers are from a kit called “Chasing Rainbows” I found at Hobby Lobby (The Paper Studio brand). The washi tape is from Recollections.

I used the following sketch:
