Adorable Furbabies – August, Week Four

Good afternoon everyone! I can’t believe how quickly this month has zoomed on by!

I had my scrappy friends over this past weekend and as I was getting the room ready, my 2 girls were ready too!

While we were wrapping things up, Ruby Mae was getting some attention from Harley!

Come Monday morning, they were all enjoying the sunny day!

Tuesday afternoon, Ruby Mae had her steroid shot.

As you can see, she is starting not to put pressure on her back, right leg.

She’s now on Vetprofen and we’re doing cold laser therapy, which started this afternoon.

Penny Lane feels bad that sissy feels bad. So she’s giving her lots of kisses!

Yesterday I ran to PetCo to get pill pockets for Jeffrey. Beds were on sale and so were some treats, so I stocked up. Here’s Jeffrey and Ruby trying out the new bed. I think they love it!

Squirrel!

Squirrel!

Hello everyone! I promise, last post for the day! LOL! This is another layout that I did over the weekend. It started a little different than the way it ended, but I really love how it turned out!

Squirrel!

Its based on Lets Get Sketchy Sketch Week 3.

Week 3

I actually started following the sketch…with the chicken wire template concentrated on the left of the photo. I made some rings in a darker ink and I didn’t let the ink from the stencil dry, so it got all ugly and smeared.😦 I decided to move the photo up and layer the papers a bit more. I ended up hiding the chicken wire design, so I added it to the bottom of the papers/photos.

Next were the Heidi Swapp veneer arrows. They were all different sizes and when I saw the short one, with the circle, I first had the arrow pointing up. My friend Amanda suggested I have the arrow pointing at Penny, since Penny is watching Squirrely from the window. It was the PERFECT idea!

I also did this layout for ACOT’s Spelling Challenge and Manufacturer Challenge. This month’s Manufacturer must start with R so I chose Reminisce’s “Its a dog’s life”. And the word of the month was BIRTHDAY. Here is what is on my layout that spells out BIRTHDAY:

B = Blue background
I = Inking using stencils
R = Reminisce pattern papers
T = Tattered Angels misting
H = Heidi Swapp Veneers arrows
D = Doodlebug orange pattern paper
A = Adhesive
Y = Yellow word bubble

Springtime Mischief

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!🙂

Squirrely Day

Squirrely Day

Hey ya’ll! I’m back with my first layout from this weekend. I usually get 2 layouts done the first night during Scrap Weekend, but this time…barely got one done. But it worked out as I got FIVE more done on Sunday!

Anyways, this first layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Sketch from Week 2 of this month.

Week 2

I love the simple one photo design, with the borders. I also wanted to do a sun burst of sorts and grabbed my Crafter’s Workshop stencil and Shimmerz Texturez in Gold Mine to create the sunburst.

Squirrely Day

I love how the gold looks on the darker papers – which by the way, are from Bo Bunny’s “Mamma-razzi” collection. The stickers/alphas are also from that collection, which I had originally posted for my August Use It or Lose It Challenge.

This photo is one of my faves of Miss Penny. You all know how she is “all about Squirrely”. Well, before we moved to our new house last year, she was accustomed to having a very large front AND back yard with no fence in between. So she could roam around when ever where ever. Our new home, though, has the back yard fenced, and that’s it! Its great for us. Not-so-great for Miss Penny. Within a week, Penny realized that Squirrely could get away from her much more easily. And I caught her pouting. What is she thinking? Is she mad? LOL. She sure does look like she would be!

This layout is also for ACOT’s Supply List Challenge. Out of 10 items, we had to use at least 5. Mine are:

Enamel dots and/or brads (2 black enamel dots)
2 or more patterned papers (used about 5)
Sunshine (can be in the photo, paper, whatever) (used a sun burst stencil)
twine/ribbon (twine around my photo)
something from your stash that is either from a discontinued manufacturer or at least 2 years old (Bo Bunny Mamma-razi collection. It came out in 2011)

You are my Sunshine

You are my Sunshine

Good morning everyone! Today’s Sketch N Scrap card is designed by the verly talented Heather Hall:

August 20th Card

Just check out the possibilities of this one!

And here is my version of it:

You are my Sunshine

Instead of banner pieces, I chose use metal charms from Bo Bunny, along with a project life-style card. I wrapped it in twine, and added glitter (lol..yes..ACTUAL glitter!).

Make sure you stop by the Sketch N Scrap blog and check out the rest of the DT’s work! Fabulous cards for sure!

Adorable Furbabies, August Week 3

Good afternoon everyone!! Can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by. I got Jeffrey scheduled for a teeth cleaning last Friday. Was supposed to have it done in June, but with all the appts for Ruby Mae in June/July….just never got a chance to make it until now. He was ready to go Friday morning:

20160812_085437

The vet tech called me at 2pm that afternoon saying he did GREAT and he didn’t need to have any of his teeth extracted, which I’m extremely thankful! I was able to pick him up at 3pm that day!

20160812_152301

As you can tell, he was VERY HAPPY to be going home!

20160812_152709

On Saturday, we went to Petco to stock up on dog food and treats. I also bought some new bones. Miss Penny was hoarding them. LOL.

20160813_152947   20160813_153059

I also managed to take some selfies with Miss Penny too!

20160816_131546   20160816_131553

Ruby was hobbling around a bit more than she usually does earlier this week. She was trying to eat, but just couldn’t stand up long. So I grabbed the dish she was eating out of (Penny’s) and let her eat on her bed.

20160816_145846

Apparently, Penny wasn’t too fond of that. LOL

20160816_145859

But Ruby was happy!

Until next time, bark on!🙂

So many blessings…

Good morning everyone! Sketch N Scrap has a brand new sketch by Mandy:

August 15th Layout

And here’s my take on it:

So many blessings

I used 2 white doilies instead of one large circle, adding a journal card. Journaling reads:

My cousin Randy gives out the best hugs. Just look how happy my aunt is!

The doilies are Bo Bunny; enamel shapes are Webster’s Pages and cork ampersand is Studio Calico. All other products – pattern paper, journal card and die cuts – are from Elles Studio “Thankful” collection. When this collection first hit stores last year, I was hesitant, as it was blues and pinks and turquoise. A bit odd for family and “thanksgiving” pictures. But my fave store – A Cherry On Top – offered all Thanksgiving/Autumn collections 40-70% off during the 4th of July. The more I looked at the collection, the more I wanted it. And I snagged most of it. LOL. 2-4 sheets of each paper, die cuts, journal cards, embelliest, etc. Once it was delivered…WOW! It was even more gorgeous in person. I’m so happy I bought it!!

Make sure you stop by Sketch N Scrap and check out the rest of DT’s creations. Amazing work as always!

TFL!🙂
