Adorable Furbabies – August 4th thru 15th

Good afternoon all! The puppies are now 6 months old and getting so big!

Jasmine being very lady-like.

Mr. Jackson wants to scrap too!

The pups got baths last weekend and Jasmine does not look very happy!

Jackson and Shelby playing hide-n-seek

Rob was out of town earlier in the month, so he got quite the greeting when he rolled in Saturday night! The puppies sure did miss him!

Being a puppy is ruff!

Jackson loves his puppies!

I had to take sweet Jasmine to the vet last Tuesday as she greeted me with her eye all droopy.

I washed it out and it actually got worse, so the vet looked her over and it was all clear. However, he described that as her “third eye lid” popping out, and it does that when it needs to protect the actual eye itself. She must have gotten something in it and tried rubbing it, causing the eye to get irritated and the third eye lid to pop out. Very scary! But she was happy and all better on the way home

I did come home to a mess. Apparently Miss Shelby was mad that I took off with Sissy and left her behind.

Afterwards, while Jasmine napped, Shelby wouldn’t leave her side at all

Even Jackson knew Jasmine wasn’t feeling well and snuggled with her that night

By Friday though, she was all better!

The girls decided to play in the dirt this weekend!

Jackson napping on Rob’s socks! Nice pillow, dude!

And last but not least, Shelby being crazy and playful right before bedtime!

Until next time, bark and meow on!


Good morning everyone! Today I have the newest sketch from Sketches in Thyme to share with you, designed by Brenshevia.

How fun is this sketch? So many possibilities!

And here is my take on it:

Pics are of Penny and Jackson playing together back in October.

My products are:
background paper, banner die cut: Doodlebug
phrases, blue pattern paper, green pattern paper: PhotoPlay
enamel dots: Freckled Fawn, Doodlebug
washi tape: Queen & Co
“beware” sticker, “play” sticker: 7 Paper
veneer paw prints: KaiserCraft
gelatos: Faber-Castell
alphas: Remarks
die cut collar: Bo Bunny

I chose this color scheme to go with ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge. Barb gave us a list of logos to choose from, to be inspired by and I chose the SPRITE logo (blue, green, yellow, grey/silver and white).

Check out the Sketches in Thyme’s blog and hope you can play along with us!

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies – July 27th thru August 3rd

Good morning everyone! The furbabies have been SUPER cute this week!

Jasmine was playing with some toys and took a nap, waking up looking like this!

Here’s the babies getting ready for bed, including Jackson!

The babies wear Penny out so much, she sleeps in each morning

At almost 6 months old and almost 50 lbs, Shelby still thinks she’s a lap dog

Adorable Furbabies – July 19th thru July 26th

Good morning all! Hope everyone is staying cool this summer! My little furry crew are by staying inside or if we’re outside, they’re playing in the pool.

Jackson is staying inside more too. He likes to play under the covers.

Jeffrey ready for bed!

While I was scrapping and everyone was napping, li’l Jasmine destroyed the stuff turtle!

They later had fun in the dirt!

Shelby’s like “What?!!”

Shelby woke up with tummy problems on Sunday. Daddy lovin’ always makes them feel better.

She was feeling a little better by Monday morning.

I had a dr’s appt on Monday afternoon and came home to find a shredded red solo cup AND a torn up coozie!

How can you be mad at these 2 little cutie pies!

Mr. Jackson was bird watching!

And last but not least, sweet Jasmine! ❤

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, July 7th thru July 18th

Good morning everyone! I’m back with another dose of adorableness!

We begin with Little Jasmine looking so sweet at the vet’s office. The day after the 4th of the July, she ended up getting a UTI. Poor baby, she wasn’t feeling well at all, but managed to still look so cute while I took pics! She’s all better now!


After we got back home, she snuggled with her little monkey.

But within a few days, she was her happy self!

The babies are still pretty inseperable. Its super cute when they are so close together on a baby bed. Sisterly Love!

Shelby likes to get into the tub…when its NOT bath time.

She wants Jackson to join her!

Always trying to find that PERFECT toy!

Just look at that squishy face?!?!

So sweet! Trying to chew on the same bone!

Mr. Jackson loves climbing trees to get to those birds better!

Jasmine says HI!

Shelby loves to take selfies!

Jackson loves his Shelby!

After playtime, its chill time in the toy box!

The pups aren’t supposed to be up on the recliners/couches. But couldn’t resist taking her picture.

Happy Jasmine!

Playtime with kitty after breakfast

Will you rub her belly?

Shelby says HELLO!

Again, no pups in the recliners! But I took a nap and woke up to this! Cute isn’t she?

Jasmine loves to smile!

And Shelby loves to chew on sticks!

Sweet Jackson snuggling up with me

There’s that sweet Jasmine smile again!

The girls love to sleep close to each other.

Homemade doggie fro-yo! Yum!

Kitty/Puppy kisses before bedtime ❤

Sweet Jackson getting ready for bed too

My handsome boy! ❤

The girls had fun destroying a Christmas Toy from 2 years ago. Stuffing! Yay!

The whole family is watch-doggin!

They still love to chew on the same toy together

And last but not least, check out sweet Shelby’s smile!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂


Adorable Furbabies – June 28th thru July 6th

Good morning all! Sorry I’ve been MIA lately, just so busy with work and life in general. Despite being busy, my furbabies continue to give me material cute enough to share. I’ll be splitting my posts into two parts.

Look how big Shelby and Jasmine have gotten! They are almost 5 1/2 months old!

Of course they love pool time!

Just look at those smiles!

They love to chew on bones/toys during “quiet time”.

They aren’t going to be able share this big bed much longer!

Mr. Jackson!

Miss Shelby

Miss Jasmine

Say Hello to Mr. Jeffrey!



And of course, Miss Penny Lane!

Jackson getting comfy on the doggie bed, with Shelby looking on

Its bedtime!

Its ruff being a puppy!

Last but not least, waiting for “snacks”!

I’ll be back either later today or tomorrow with another dose of adorable furbabies!


Puppy Layouts

Good evening everyone! I have a few layouts to share with you, featuring my sweet babies Jasmine Grace & Shelby Lynn. Two weekends ago, I had my scrappy friends over for our quarterly weekend crop. I didn’t get as many layouts done as I usually do but I still had fun. So lets get started!

Homeward Bound: Jasmine & Shelby leaving the shelter on their way to their FOREVER HOME!

This layout was for A Cherry On Top’s “July Supply List” Challenge.

acrylic “love” sticker: WRMKs
veneers: KaiserCraft
washi tapes: Queen & Co, Doodlebug
stars: Jillibean soup

What An Adventure: Jasmine & Shelby exploring their new yard within a few minutes after being at their new home.

This layout is for A Cherry On Top’s “Rewind Challenge”, where we can go back and do any challenge(s) from the previous month that we didn’t get to do. I chose to do the “June Countdown Challenge”.

papers, alphas: Echo Park
“adventure” veneer word: Heidi Swapp
brads: WRMKs

It was meant to be

Good morning everyone! I’m up on the Sketches in Thyme blog today, sharing with you Sketch #284, designed by the very talented Shawn Lahr:

Check out all those fun circles! And here is my take on it:

When I first saw this sketch, I knew EXACTLY which photo I was going to use. This is the first photo I took of sweet Jasmine and Shelby when we were “getting to know them” at the shelter. I just love how little Jasmine is looking at the camera, while little Shelby is chewing on her leash.

So I used my circle cutter to cut the photo into a circle and from there, I was torn by which products. However, once I chose doilies to use as my photo mat (red is Doodlebug; white is Bo Bunny), I went straight for the Doodlebug “Puppy Love”.

I chose the title because at first, both of these little girls had pending adoptions. So while we waited to see if we were going to adopt these two cutie pies, we were already falling in love. Luckily, they both fell thru and they were OURS! ❤ ❤ It was MEANT to be! ❤ ❤

I chose to write my journaling on the 2 doily halves on opposite sides of my layout. The little sprinkles are a mix of enamel dots/shapes, paw print/dog bone stickers – all from Doodlebug.

Make sure you head over to Sketches in Thyme’s blog and check out this awesome sketch. Hope you can play along this month!

TFL! 🙂

Hello Friend

Good morning and hello friends! Today is a bittersweet as I’m sharing with you my last DT assignment for Sketch N Scrap. I’ve really enjoyed being part of an amazing team for the past two years and will miss everyone. I have decided to step down as life has just gotten in the way. Two new puppies, work, and everything in between. But don’t you worry, I can continue to play along with Sketch N Scrap and you’ll get to see my creations when I can post!

So without further ado, here is card sketch #100, designed by the very talented Lisa Hidy:

And here is my take on it:

The washi tapes are from Hobby Lobby (The Paper Studio brand) and the papers/stickers are MME.

Make sure you stop by Sketch N Scrap blog and hope you can play along!

TFL! 🙂
