Adorable Furbabies – April, Week Two

Good morning everyone! I hope everybody enjoyed the Easter Weekend last weekend. Ours was very low key and chill. I like those kind of holiday weekends. 😉 So let’s get started!

Mr. Jeffrey is starting to pose for me more often now again. Not sure what mood he was in the past few weeks. LOL.

How much are these doggies in the window? We were in the car, entering in an address into the nav unit and they were just watching us.

 

So, hubby bought a new to him truck 2 weeks ago. 2015 Ford F-150. Our 14 yr old Expediction has thrown in the towel and called it quits. Its becoming unreliable and needs $1750 worth of work on it. But, we’re not complaining as its been VERY GOOD to us. Its moved us to our new home. It moved my parents; various friends (sometimes more than once). Its tooken doggies to the beach. Its been all over the state of Texas, to California and back numerous times. Its been to Oklahoma, Alabama and Florida. So yeah…it had a great run. So, why did I bring up our new truck? Jeffrey had to inspect if, of course!

 

 

I love the truck Daddy!

Li’l Jackson exhausted from being a kitten!

Its a ruff life, huh?

 

Penny wanted to give Jackson kisses! She loves her kitty!

 

They were actually sleeping on their beds the same way. Even facing the same way!

The neighbor’s dog was out with his owner (she was on the phone), so he came over to say Hi to Jeffrey!

 

I visited with my parents for a couple of hours last Thursday and FINALLY got to take some decent pics of their doggies – who just turned two yrs old.

Genie

 

Ginger

 

When I got back home, my pups were like, “Uh..where were you?”

 

Later that day, Jeffrey and Penny were actually sharing the large doggie bed. Aren’t they just cute together?

 

 

So I guess Mr. Jeffrey got tired of sharing with his sister as he took a spot on his little doggie bed:

That thing is so lumpy, poor guy. I pulled it out for Jackson, but that little turkey chooses to sleep on the bigger dog beds. But don’t worry, Jeffrey got a new bed for Easter and I’ll post those pics next week!

Unti then, bark and meow on! 🙂

Sweet Memories

Good morning everyone! Today, I have the 2nd layout sketch for April by Heather Hall for Sketch N Scrap:

april-15th-layout

Its a super fun sketch! And here’s my take on it:

sweet-memories

They are photos of Miss Penny watching/playing with Li’l Jackson. I chose to use a mix of PhotoPlay’s “Cooper & Friends” and “Roxie & Friends” to complete my layout. The mini alphas are by Basic Grey.

Make sure you stop by the Sketch N Scrap blog to check out the rest of the DT’s fabulous work with this sketch. You have until the end of the month to play along!

Also, don’t forget — Sketch N Scrap is turning 5 years old on May 1st and to celebrate, we’re throwing a month-long party! Brand new EXCLUSIVE sketches, a month long online crop, on top of our regular 2 cards/2 layouts during the month!

Good times

Good morning everyone! Its my turn to share with you the newest Sketches in Thyme sketch, designed by Brenda Ragsdale:

team-2-sketch

Check out those layers!

And here’s my take on it:

good-times

I used all Doodlebug “Puppy Love” papers and embellies and washi tape. The pictures are of my hubby trying to get his mother’s dog Peanut to sit for treats. This was a few years back – June 2012.

Hope you can join us and play along this month.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies – April 2017, Week One

Good afternoon everyone! My furbabies are really enjoying the pleasant temperatures we’ve been having. They spend most of their time outside! So here’s what happened in their world the past few days.

Jackson has been snuggling next to Penny and she’s been letting him. To an extent

 

 

We did some grilling over the weekend (steak Friday night; hot dogs Saturday night) and look who wanted a bite!

Rob had placed all the toys/bones in the pool just so he can do some yard work. They were out of the way. Jeffrey is looking for the water. LOL. Or wondering why Daddy moved his toys….

Here’s Jeffrey waiting for the hot dogs to be done.

We did a little yardwork on Sunday. We had the best supervisors!

 

 

And last but not least, more adorable photos featuring Penny and Jackson together:

 

 

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Can you see me?

Good morning everyone! Today I have the newest sketch to share with you from Sketch N Scrap, designed by Lisa Hidy:

Its so cute isn’t it?

And here is my take on it:

Can you see Mr. Jeffrey? He’s smack dab in the middle of both of those photos. He was being sooo cute that day (well, he’s cute everyday!). Other than the mini alphas (My Little Shoebox), everything is Doodlebug “Puppy Love” collection.

Check out the rest of the Sketch N Scrap DT work on this fabulous sketch. Make sure you come and play – layouts due April 30th!

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies – March, Week 4

Good morning everyone! Today, I’ve got TONS of photos to share with you. My furbabies have been super busy being cute and that means they are keeping ME busy! LOL! With the picture taking! 😉

To start, Penny decided that she wanted to chew on her toy outside. Just before chowing down, she actually threw that thing in the air, watched it land, and then plopped down to chew!

   

While Penny was chewing outside, Jeffrey decided that it was best to chew INSIDE. Especially when you have a bone that is prime rib and mashed potatoe flavor! 🙂

 

Jackson was actually being a good boy and posed for me very nicely:

Saturday, my husband did some yardwork. Leaves, mowing, everything. With that said, Miss Penny was happy because she LOVES freshly cut grass! And boy did she have fun!

And Jackson is still loving the big tree.

He found a small twig growing from the large branch and decided to rub against it:

 

Miss Penny is starting to pose for me, without being told!

 

 

 

Yesterday was very eventful. Jackson made a friend! A kitty friend! He looks to be about the same size as Jackson. Maybe a litter mate?

Afterwards, he was tuckered out. Making friends are exhausting!

And here is Penny again! Happy as can be! Isn’t she pretty?

And being pretty for pictures is exhausting too!

 

And last but not least, I was trying to get Jeffrey to look at me, and I said “Hey old man, what’s up?” Just LOOK at his look! Its like he’s saying “Who you calling an old man, mom!?!!”

Until next week, bark and meow on! 🙂

 

Adorable Furbabies – March 2017, Weeks 2 & 3

Good afternoon all! Don’t know about you, but my dogs and li’l kitty are sure enjoying the wonderful weather! You can’t beat all the sunshine South Texas is experiencing!

First off, here’s Mr. Jeffrey being super cute.

 

And Miss Penny, who was super happy!

Li’l Jackson was being anti-social:

And the next day, waited patiently for the printer to print something out for him. He LOVES the printer!

When Jackson isn’t being cute inside, he’s being cute OUTSIDE!

   

These next photos are SUPER cute. I had put a clean sheet on a doggie bed and Jackson snuck under it. It ended up being a game he played with Penny!

 

Later that day, I saw Jackson coming out from some tall grass.

 

I then tried getting some pics of Jeffrey and he just stuck his tongue out at me. LOL

 

And last but not least, Mr. Jeffrey took some time to pose with me while I was hosting a quarterly crop with the girls

 

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Scrap Weekend with the Girls

Hi everyone! This past weekend I had some of my scrappy friends over for our first crop of 2017. Its always alot of fun and I usually get 4-7 layouts done and I actually surpassed that goal! I completed TEN layouts by the time the last girl packed up her stuff! You guys already saw my Super Star layout from earlier. So here’s the rest of the layouts I did on Saturday.

This is my happy place. I used Simple Stories “Summer Vibes” papers, buttons are from stash. Its based on the sketch for ACOT’s Sketch with a Twist Challenge.

Summertime. Everything is Simple Stories “Summer Vibes”

Adventure Awaits. Alphas are Bo Bunny. Everything else is Simple Stories “Summer Vibes”.

And the last layout of the evening…..

Slumber Party with Mommy. Background paper and photo mat is by 7 Paper. The Kraft foiled bone paper is Anna Griffin. Mini alphas are by My Little shoebox and clear stickers are Simple Stories.

I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you the layouts I created on Sunday!

TFL! 🙂

Superstar

Good afternoon everyone! Today I’m sharing with you a super cute layout of Mr. Jeffrey that I did over the weekend!

Its based on the latest Let’s Get Sketchy sketch:

I was inspired by the large star, and chose to use my Cricut to cut out the extra-large basketball (since Jeffrey was posing with HIS little basketball toy!). I used some black Tattered Angels mist and Studio Calico veneer stars. Washi tapes are by Queen & Co. I colored in the openings of the letters – “p”, “e” and “a” to be submitted to ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge. And since that die cut basketball is so large, its also for ACOT’s Size Matters challenge!

TFL! 🙂
