Adorable Furbabies, May 13th thru 22nd

Good afternoon everyone! This is technically part three of all the photos I’ve taken of the furbabies – including li’l Jasmine and Shelby!

Out of the 2 girls, Miss Jasmine is our digger! Just look at that smile!

After a long doggie day, they take naps together. I just LOVE how close they are when they nap! Its so sweet!

Miss Penny and Mr. Jeffrey are getting plenty of attention too!


And we can’t forget about Jackson!

Empty pool? No problem, just add water Jasmine says!


After seeing grandma, grandpa and Uncle Lee and Auntie Jennifer on Mother’s Day, these two were exhausted before their regular bedtime (10pm)!

Jackson says HI!

Sweet babies! ❤ ❤

We’ve had our first casualty! The snake now is stuffing-less!


Jeffrey is like, “Ha! Wasn’t me!”

Miss Penny enjoying the sunshine

Jasmine wants to take a nap. Shelby wants to play.


I think Jasmine won!

Puppy School! Penny teaching the girls how to chew on a Nylabone.

And also to watch out for the mail man


When the temps are hot and the pups are hyper, its pool time!



Just look at that squishy face! ❤

Big Sister Penny taking a break from teaching.

So Jeffrey is teaching. Not sure what though. LOL

Its nap time now!

Look how big they are getting! ❤ ❤

Another Puppy School lesson! Today’s Lesson: How to play quietly while Mommy works.

Gotta find the perfect toy!

Watching Daddy water the grape vines! I want to play with the water!!

Shelby hanging out with her favorite kitty!


Early morning playtime Sunday morning

Just hanging out and chewing on sticks!


Look how much bigger they are compared to Jeffrey already!

In Mommy’s scrap room for the first time! Yay!

Super sleepy puppies!


Jasmine says Good morning!


And last but not least, naptime! Again! But this time, with big sissy too!

I’m officially caught up with all the pics! Yay! I should be back to posting regularly!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, April 27th thru May 2nd

Good afternoon everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past month or so. Life has just been way too busy! Between work and new puppies (yes, you read correctly – puppies!), my days are filled with work, sleep when I can, and taking care of 2 new little puppies. Before I introduce the puppies here on my blog, here are a few pictures of the “big kids” taken the day before we adopted.

Jackson being super cute!


Jeffrey taking time out of his busy day to take some selfies with momma:


and Miss Penny!

Now, on to the puppies! ❤ ❤

Please say hello to Jasmine Grace and Shelby Lynn!

Our local humane society posted on at the end of April that they had a litter of 8 puppies! Lab mixes and they were ready to be adopted! I called that day and got some information. They had their adoption application online and I printed it out and worked on it. Its a 5-page document! The next day, we went down there, and went to look. Out of the 8 original puppies, 4 were left. 3 girls, 1 boy. As we were watching them play, another girl got adopted.

On April 27th, at 9:30am, I got word that we were approved (kind of no brainer..right?) and we could come down anytime. We took off at noon and got there a few mins shortly. We wanted the girls. Their original names were Eleanor and Sylvia and we were very lucky. One of the girls had a pending adoption and the lady called and changed her mine. The other girl was also pending and the lady couldn’t afford the pet deposit for her apt and land lord denied her. So both girls could be ours!

The photo above was taken in the room where you get “get to know them”. They are sooo sweet. Shelby (the one NOT looking at me) is a licker! She loves kisses and will give them back to you! Jasmine is sweet…a little cautious but at the same time, very vocal. She’s our barker! So we finished up the paper work and by 2pm, they were home with us!

This is the look they had in the vehicle. On their way to their forever home to meet their older sister and 2 brothers!

Exploring their new yard:


Shelby’s first selfie with mommy

Discovering toys!


At the vet for the first time. They did great! Our vet loves them!

This was the morning after their 2nd day. They get up between 5 & 6am, ready to eat and play!

Shelby thinks the water dish is a toy.



By Day 3, they figure out there was FOOD in the elevated dish! So it got moved!


They are such angels when they are sleeping.

Little Shelby ended up getting a UTI and she had to go to the vet w/o her sister for the first time. She did very well. She’s all better now!


Afterwards, they got little puppy dentastix!

The other are doing very very well with Jasmine and Shelby. They see Jackson as someone who can run with them and he kind of does, but has has trees to get away. Shelby really is interested in him and barks at him. LOL. Penny has already accepted them and runs them into the yard, like come on, this way, girls. You play out here. Jeffrey keeps an eye on them…from afar…about several feet away. But they all get loving from my husband and I.

I will be back later with another post. Just trying to play catch up. I ended up taking over 100 photos of these sweet girls in their first 3 days. LOL! Surprised? I’m not!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂


If I had a dollar…

Hanging Out

Good morning all! Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Today, I have a brand new sketch designed by Heather Hall to share with you for Sketch N Scrap:

I’m lovin’ the diagnol design! And here’s my take on it:

The pics are of my hubby holding Max and Bella. They are just hanging out! I pulled colors from my hubby’s shirt and used a chicken wire stencil to bring out the chain link fence. My pics are larger than the sketch, but I still love the diagnol design. My list of products are as follows:

cardstock: MME, Bo Bunny
stencil: Crafter’s Workshop
texture paste: Shimmerz
so awesome embellie, paper clips: Freckled Fawn
veneers: Bo Bunny
word phrases, alphas: Simple Stories
enamel dots: Echo Park
twine: from stash

Good morning ya’ll! Today I have Sketch N Scrap’s 2nd Birthday Bash sketch from Lisa Hidy:

I LOVED this sketch! The large flower. The border strips. I was undecided on whether I was going to do washi tape or pattern paper, but I bought some washi tape from Hobby Lobby about a month ago and STILL hadn’t put them away. Nor did I put away my latest large order from A Cherry On Top, which included a large flower. LOL. Just with the goodies on my desk, the card was done!

The flower is from Petaloo, and all the washi tape is The Paper Studio. Cardstock is from Bazzill.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT’s wonderful work with this card sketch – you’ll get tons of inspiration! Hope you can play along!

TFL! 🙂

At the Vet

Good morning everyone! Today I’m up on the Sketches in Thyme blog, using a sketch by Jenessa Franco:


And here’s my take on it:


These pics were taken at the vet, while Bear was getting laser therapy. She did so well!!!

The veneers and papers are all by Adorn It, and the blingy paw prints are by Jolee’s. The mini alphas are Authentique.

Hope you stop by the Sketches in Thyme blog and play along.

Good Dog

Good morning and Happy Birthday to Sketch N Scrap!!! We’re celebrating our 5th birthday all month long with Exclusive Sketches, NSD AND an online crop!! So lets kick off this party with the very first exclusive birthday sketch, designed by the very talented Heather Hall!

Gorgeous isn’t it? I was so excited when I saw this sketch. It took me a while to figure out what I’d do with it though. Die cut? Stencil/mixed media? Stitching? The options are endless and I ended up using my Cricut to cut out a very messy ring.

The rest of my products is PhotoPlay “Cooper & Friends”. Just check out Mr. Jeffrey. He was quite focused on something and not on the camera!

Make sure you hop over to our blog and check out the rest of the DT’s fantastic work with this amazing sketch.

TFL and hope to see you there!
