Good morning everyone! Today I’m sharing with you the latest sketch for Sketches in Thyme. Its a fun one!

And here is my take on it

I pretty much stayed true to the sketch, but kept my photos larger and moved one of them where the title is. I used an old pet stack from DCWV and fussy cut the hearts, flowers and hydrant. The doily is from Recollections. Pictures are of me and Ruby Mae taking some selfies together, June 2015.

Make sure you stop by the Sketches in Thyme blog and check out the sketches we have going on this month as well as the daily posts from DT.

As always, thanks for looking!


Adorable Furbabies – Oct 20th thru the 26th

Good morning everyone!! Who’s curious to see what my furbaby gang has been up to this week?!!?

Jackson found a branch with leaves and Shelby wanted to play too!

Penny is starting to come out of her shell and wants to be around the girls more, INCLUDING chewing on toys together!

While Penny chewed on toys, the babies looked on

Jeffrey has been put on some new arthritic medication and check this out! He’s on the couch! He hasn’t done that in MONTHS!

Miss Shelby says HI!

Speaking of Shelby, this past weekend she wanted to help momma unload the dishwasher!

Jeffrey was having such a GREAT weekend, he stopped for some selfies on Sunday!


While Jeffrey smiled for the camera, the babies were playing with toys. LOTS Of TOYS!

The girls stopped a little to take pics too, just not selfies!

After all that playtime and baby sitting, Penny threw in the towel and barely made it to the dog bed!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, Oct 14 thru Oct 19th

Good afternoon everyone! My “babies” are now considered BIG GIRLS now! They are now eating in elevated dishes! We started them on Sunday and they take to it like pros!

Shelby loves her daddy so much, she don’t care if he’s busy. She’ll just climb into his lap!

They were busy little puppies over the weekend. They tore into a toy and pulled out all the stuffing! They sure had fun! 😉

Little kitty takes the big dog bed while the 2 50 lb plus puppies sleep on the floor. LOL….

And last but not least, puppy smiles!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, Sept 22nd thru Oct 13th

Good morning everyone!! I have tons of photos to share with today, as I’m falling behind in sharing! So let’s get started!

Jasmine and Shelby are starting to really get into “hopping on our bed” when we are in there. Just look at those cutie pies!

When we had company a few weeks ago (aka Max and Bella), Jackson made himself scarce. So when they left, you can tell he was happy to be back home!

Shelby was happy too. She got to hang out with her favorite kitty!

Miss Penny was exhausted from Max and Bella’s visit. When they left, she could finally get some sleep!

I was able to get some scrapping in and saw this adorable moment. All four pups passed out in my room! So sweet!

Shelby being a cutie pie!

Jackson was outside, hanging out by the window and Shelby was watching him.

Jackson loves his tree!

The puppies are now coined “crazy monkey puppy babies” because they are constantly getting into things, breaking stuff and now….eating my house!

But just look at this sweet face! How could you be mad at li’l Jasmine?

Jeffrey got to go for a long car ride, to visit my grandparents. He loved it!

Afterwards, he passed out! Quickly!

Jasmine loves dirt! Just look at that face!

After the girls have breakfast, they have “quiet time”.

Last Friday, Penny had her well ness exam/shots. She usually freaks out and gets SUPER nervous about car rides, leaving the car, the vet, everything! So I had given her her calming chews a few minutes before leaving, on top of calming ointment on her nose, calming spray on her blanket/collar/leash and she wears a calming collar. Whew! She did great on the way over!

She got out of the car and just froze. Curled up into a ball and FROZE. Went from a 60 lb dog to an 80 lb dog. So I had to slowly drag her bit by bit to get her in the door. But by the time she saw Cindy at the front desk, all was good!

Little nervous in the exam room

But then calm after shots. She did great! Had to have a dental the following Tuesday

While I was gone, I had put the babies in their room and in 30 mins, they got out. Check out what they did to their gate!

What did I say? Crazy monkey puppy babies!

And get this! Hubby and I went to Home Depot to get stuff to build a more sturdier “gate” (its more like a half wall) and they tore up a book!

While hubby was working on it, check out these cute pics! Now who can be mad at these babies!

Even Jeffrey and Penny wanted to say HI!

Later, Jazzy got lovin’ from her daddy! ❤ ❤

More quiet time!

And last but not least, Penny’s dental. She was upset that she was going back to the vet so soon, but after we got her back home, just check out that pretty smile!

Until next time, bark and meow on!


Best Friends

Good morning everyone! Today I have the newest Sketches in Thyme sketch to share with you!

October 9th

And here is my take on it:

Best Friends

I stayed pretty true with it, except I moved the title and removed the banner and instead used some bubble stickers. Papers/stickers/die cuts are Heidi Swapp; doily by Doodlebug; flower by Bo Bunny; veneer leaves by Freckled Fawn; meow pin by My Mind’s Eye and the alphas are from my stash.


This photo is really dear to me. Jackson was only a kitten, and he would just snuggle up close to Ruby Mae, which by now, had been diagnosed with bone cancer. She would only be here for another 3 weeks before we would have to say goodbye. I really cherish this photo.

This layout is also my example for the October Pet Challenge over at ACOT. Yes, you heard right — my example! I’m hosting it for a while, helping out the usual hostess and the prompt this month is Friendship! As you can see, Jackson and Ruby Mae fit the prompt quite well!

Hop over to the Sketches in Thyme blog and play along with not only this week’s sketch but the others ones as well for the month of October!

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies – Sept 14th thru 21st

Good morning everyone! TGIF!! Not sure how your week has been, but mine has been busy and long. But at least my furbabies help make it all better! 🙂

Mr. Jackson looks so handsome in his tree!

The babies taking a break from playtime

And now its back on! LOL

Jasmine takes time to smile for the camera

Last weekend was great! I got all 4 at the gate, watchdoggin’!

Miss Shelby getting hugs from her daddy! ❤ ❤

On Saturday, my brother and sis in law dropped off their doggies – Max and Bella – for a one week slumber party with my crew! Its been fun and crazy! LOL. Here are those highlights:

While Max and Bella took some time to pose for me, Jasmine and Shelby were fighting over a single tennis ball, which Jasmine enjoying shredding!

Miss Penny looking on

On Sunday, Rob got up and in 2 seconds, Miss Jasmine stole his seat! LOL!

Even Shelby was trying to tell sissy “Hey, that’s Daddy’s seat!”

So then she decided to get up on the chair next me! LOL

And last but not least, Mr. Jeffrey!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Jasmine Grace

Good morning all. No time long see, huh? I’ve just been so busy, hardly have time to sit down and scrap. But I did get to do one page done (took me almost a week to complete it). And of course, its about my li’l girl Jasmine!

Jasmine Grace

This was the second day after we adopted the girls. Just look at that cute little face! I can’t believe they are 7 months old now!

I used KaiserCraft “Pawfect” collection, with alphas by My Little Shoebox. I used the fabulous sketch #136 from Sketch N Scrap

Sketch #136

I stayed true to the sketch and used the hexagon/circle die cuts for my banner


I did this for both the Sept Manufacturer Challenge at ACOT (use a manufacturer that has the letter “t” in their name) and the Sept Rewind Challenge. I went back and did August Manufacturer Challenge (manufacturer must start with K or O).

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies – September 2017

Good afternoon everyone! The furkids are being as cute as ever, so lets begin!

Mr. Jackson has been spending more time outside, enjoying the semi-cooler temps and less humidity!

The babies have been naughty and they can now jump over their gate, so hubby was working on getting that raised a bit higher. And they watched. LOL

Look at Shelby’s sweet smile!


Mr Jeffrey is all smiles too!


Even though they are 7 months old now, Jasmine and Shelby still lay close to each other. Its very sweet!

Miss Penny is keeping an eye on Jasmine, playing with a rope toy


Miss Shelby has to bring a toy to our bedroom when she goes in there. LOL. This time, it was a rope!

Shelby might be over 50 lbs now, but she still wants to climb in Daddy’s lap!

The babies have also been naughty! Pulling stuffing out of a doggie bed, playing in the litter box, and putting all their weight on their gate to knock it over!

Speaking of being over 50 lbs, Shelby also takes up alot of room on our bed too!

But just look at those sweet faces!

And last but not least, I managed to get all four dogs in one shot!


Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies – August 16th thru the 31st

Good morning all! Seems like forever since I’ve posted. I had pictures ready to go last week, but due to Hurricane Harvey, things got put on hold. My heart goes out to all who are still dealing with him – flooding, no power, no water, etc. #StayTexasStrong

The puppies continue to grow – they are 50 lbs already! Yet still so very cute!

Shelby wants to know whatcha doing!

I brought out the elevated dishes, thinking they were ready. Not quite. They were very curious, but didn’t want to eat out of them. Plus, height-wise, they are about an inch too short. Maybe next month!

I love how they sleep together. Sisterly love! ❤

I took Jeffrey to the vet early in the week last week. He was very sluggish and very grouchy. A cyst growing near his gum line had grown larger and I was very concerned. He was scheduled for surgery the following day. He wasn’t a happy camper, as you can tell. We are waiting to see if cyst is benign or not. Lets hope so!

Speaking of Hurricane Harvey, Corpus Christi fared well, so to speak, compared to other cities/communities. We had branches down and only a part of our fence blown over. We were very lucky.

The babies helped with clean up

Mr. Jackson wasn’t very happy being stuck in the house during the storm. I’d rather have him MAD than MISSING. He also doesn’t look happy about his fence either.

Shelby’s been very needy and thinks she’s still a lap dog!

The puppies were happy to see the sun starting to come up.

We have a friend staying with us until his house gets power. Until then, the babies get extra love!

All 3 girls watchdoggin’. Its hard to tell, but it looks like they are all the same size too!

Last but not least, Shelby wants to thank all who are donating to help save the pets who have also been affected by Hurricane Harvey!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

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 posing with Jasmine

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!
