Hello Love

Hello everyone! Hope you all have had a good weekend. Can’t believe tomorrow is almost Monday!

Anyways, my newest layout features my sweet girls – Ruby Mae and Lady Bear – from May 2015.


I used Doodlebug “Puppy Love” collection for the papers, stickers, enamel dogs, washi tape and paper clips.



I submitted this layout for Paper Issues Pet Challenge where I had to use something that is new to me (Doodlebug Puppy Love) and use something that I had been hoarding. I chose the veneers from Crate Paper “Hello Love” collection. I even colored the title using an orange gelato.

The design is based on Let’s Get Sketchy’s latest sketch:

Man’s Best Friend

Good morning everyone! Today I’d like to share with you Sketch N Scrap’s latest sketch – #113 – designed by the very talented Lisa Hidy:

September 15th layout

And here is my take on it:

Man's Best Friend

I used ONLY Doodlebug “Puppy Love” collection with this layout. Those photos of Mr Jeffrey were taken about 3 1/2 years ago. They were MEANT for this awesome collection!

I chose Doodlebug because I wanted to submit this layout for ACOT’s Manufacturer Challenge. The letter is D and of course, I have nothing else BUT Doodlebug! 🙂

Make sure you stop by the Sketch N Scrap blog and check out the rest of the talented DT’s work. Then join us by uploading your version of the sketch to our blog.

Sketch N Scrap Reveal #112

Good morning everyone! I got to work with an amazing sketch by Lisa Hidy this month. Its got lots of possibilities!

September 1st Layout

Isn’t it awesome? And here is my take on it:

Puppy Love

That little pup is Princess. She is my BFF’s li’l doggie. This was a few years ago. She LOVES to be wrapped up in fleece blankets!

My papers/title are Anna Griffin, doily by Doodlebug. Enamel shapes are Webster’s Pages & Echo Park, with everything else from my stash.

Springtime Mischief

Good afternoon everyone! I’m back with another layout I did over the weekend. This one features my sweet girls Ruby and Bear.

Springtime Mischief

This photo was taken last April and I had caught them DIGGING under the rubber tree together. LOL. 10 years old, and digging! Couldn’t help taking the picture. Just look how happy they are! Who could be mad! LOL.

The design is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Sketch from Week 1.

Week 1

I skipped the sun burst background and chose polka dots (still, a very bold, busy background) and lost the large banner (just used layers instead). The stars were swapped for hearts, paw print and the doggie die cut. All the papers are from Doodlebug’s “Puppy Love” collection, including the die cuts. The alphas are K & Company (brown) and Fancy Pants (navy blue).

The layout is also for ACOT’s 3 in a Row Challenge. I had chosen the middle row – color blue; 5 or more patterned papers, polka dots.

TFL! 🙂

Too many bones? Never!

This next layout features my little guy, Jeffrey James, contemplating which bone to chew on. LOL. He had several different flavors – peanut butter, chicken, bacon and original and he went with the original flavored Nylabone.

Too many bones Never!

The design for this layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Week 1 for April:

Team A Week 1

I stayed true to the sketch, using the 2 photo placement, layering and misting as inspiration. I swapped out the rings for doilies and moved the title over to the bottom left side.


The title came to mind as I was working on the Rewind Challenge (and yes, I realize the period from the question mark fell off). Going back to last month’s Guest Designer Challenge #1 – 31 Flavors. A wide variety of something that comes in many flavors. For my dogs, its their bones.


The pop of green was from ACOT’s Color Challenge, to use as many shades of green as you want (creation didn’t have to be monochromatic). As I’m using the Canvas Corp Kraft pattern paper (BTW, is from my April Use It or Lose It challenge), I thought green would make the rest of the layout POP, with all the Kraft, brown, black and white I was using.


The enamel dots and doilies are from Doodlebug; mist by Tattered Angels and alphas are by Fancy Pants and The Paper Studio. The pattern papers (other than the Kraft ones by Canvas Corp.), are from DCWV (green/brown) and Karen Foster (paw prints).

TFL! 🙂


Sketch N Scrap Throwback Thursday #5

Good morning and welcome to Sketch N Scrap‘s 5th and final Throwback Thursday sketch! I volunteered as a hostess for this one and I selected Sketch #39 by Kelly. It premiered back in August 2013:

March 31st - Brandy as Hostess

I chose it because it had the “Rule of Three”. Three areas of where your eyes would tend to wonder, with circles! So here is my take on it:

March 31st Layout

I used all Authentique “Devoted” Collection, Doodlebug Doilies and Freckled Fawn enamel dots. Here are some close-ups:


My sweet boy, Jeffrey James!



Make sure you stop by Sketch N Scrap to check out the rest of the DT’s work. Hope you can play along with us too!

As always, TFL! 🙂

Sketch N Scrap Throwback Thursday #2

Good morning everyone! Leah is hosting Throwback Thursday this week and she chose sketch #52 from Lisa Hidy:

March 10th - Leah as Hostess

I was originally going to do all pattern paper, but it just got too busy, so I went with pattern paper strips behind my photo and used a border sticker to separate the two halves:

March 10th Layout

The papers are Basic Grey “Persimmon” collection and all the enamel dots are from Doodlebug.

Make sure you stop by Sketch N Scrap to see the inspiration from the DT. And as always TFL! 🙂
