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!
Good morning everyone! We had some rainy weather yesterday, so the pups and Jackson stayed inside. And Jackson was not a happy camper!
I was quite proud of Miss Penny Lane! She had no problems going outside to do her business in the rain and even ate her breakfast with no issues. When we first got her (6 yrs ago) and up to about 6 months ago, she was terrified of the thunder, rain, and even the SMELL of rain would have her running. But being pro-active with a calming collar that she wears 24/7, taking calming chews daily have helped. She hasn’t even worn her ThunderShirt in about 6 months. Yay Penny! She even hung out with the girls and I in the office, staring out the window. She also never used to do that either!
And last but not least, Jackson was being sweet with Shelby. They were sharing the big dog bed. Adorable!
Good evening everyone! No time long see! I’ve been so busy lately, I only have time to load pics of the furbabies. But I actually had some time yesterday to scrap. And it felt great!
This first layout is of our sweet Bear. Photos are about 5 years old. There was this small tree right by the house and Bear would pull the leaves off and eat them. Just like a koala bear; hence the title of this layout:
I used mostly Basic Grey (Origins collection – stickers, background paper) and Freckled Fawn (enamel dots). My alphas are by My Little Shoebox and I used my Cricut to cut out the circles. This is for a couple of challenges on A Cherry On Top. Rewind Challenge (January Book Lover’s Challenge – Option 2 (use one of the several sketches provided)) and Manufacturer Challenge (use B, E, and/or F).
Second layout is 3 of our 4 past dogs – Jeffrey, Bear and Lady.
The design is based on the sketch provided by Deanna for the January Sketch with a Twist Challenge (again, doing this for February Rewind Challenge). The “twist” was to use 10+ sequins. My quote die cut and pattern paper are PhotoPlay. Everything else is from my stash.
Good morning everyone and Happy New Year! Hope the year is treating you well so far. This post will be mostly about Mr. Jackson as he has been hamming it up for the camera lately. 😉
Jackson received some really fun toys from his Aunt in New York. He really loves them!
The last weekend of 2018 brought colder temps, so that meant Jackson was INSIDE most of the time. And that means I was able to capture really sweet moments of him with his favorite doggie, Shelby!
I had bought Dog Wine (and Cat Wine) for the furkids for Christmas and felt that it was PERFECT for New Year’s Eve! Penny didn’t like it, Jasmine can care less but drank it anyways, but Shelby LOVED it! She finished everyone else’s wine. Haha….just like her momma! 🙂
On New Year’s Day, the pups got big beef bones. The bones kept them occupied for a couple of hours.
I tried giving Jackson some of his cat wine, but he gave me the ugliest look. LOL.
This past New Year’s was the BEST for Miss Penny. I feel bad for her that she gets so terrified of the fireworks. We have tried calming spray, ThunderShirt. She’s now on calming chews daily and wears a calming collar. This year though, on top of everything I mentioned above (minus the ThunderShirt), I gave her some CBD Oil made for dogs. Check out the photo below. That is Penny, chilling out, DURING Fireworks!
After the New Year, it was back to work for everyone, including me babysitting my nephew for about 12 hrs a day for a couple of days. He wore the pups out that night for sure!
Mr. Jackson napping as well in his bed.
And last but not least, Jackson saying “What’s up?” while sitting in a chair.
With the end of the year nearing, you tend to see the “TOP” whatever being posted for the year. This year, I’m posting my TOP TEN layouts that I’ve created this year. Usually its a hard task, but I’ve been busier this year than I normally am, so not as many layouts to choose from. But in no particular order, here are my Top 10 Layouts of 2018:
Magic of Winter
You are Purr-fect
I would do anything for a tennis ball
You’re the cat’s meow
Another Day in Paradise
I hope you enjoyed looking back at a creative 2018. Here’s to 2019! Let’s make it creative and fun!
