March Cricut Challenge

Good morning everyone!!! Starting this month, I’ve rephrased my “Use it or Lose it Challenge” to be “Cricut Challenge” as I’m pulling one phycial Cricut cartridge and one digi cart to use per month.

If you remember, I pulled the  “Freshly Picked” physical cartridge and the pre-loaded CCR Basics cartridge for February. I only used the “Freshly Picked” cart once, but I did use the digi one a few times. February was a crazy month, and short too!

Anyways, for March, I’m pulling the physical cartridge “Paper Doll Dress Up” and digi cart “Cricut Font/Basic Shapes”. I’m looking forward to using these 2 carts this month.


You can do anything…

Good morning everyone! I can’t believe its March 1st! Boy is time flying by fast or what!

Anyways, I have a wonderful sketch to share with you from Sketch N Scrap, designed by Lisa Hidy:


It has room for FIVE pics! And surprisingly…that’s how many I used on my layout!


I moved things around a bit. I started with the hexagon pattern paper and fussy cut the edge. I used black cardstock for my base and photo mats to make everything POP! The borders, the title and the washi tape is from the same collection as the hexagon pattern paper – RECOLLECTION “Color Splash”.

The die cuts are from 2 cartridges. I used “Paper Doll Dress Up” for the palm tree; and “Cricut Font & Basic Shapes” for the little flowers. These are the 2 cartridges I pulled for my March Cricut challenge to myself.

I chose to use flowers and the palm tree because not only do they go with the collection/photos, but that is what I’m challenging everyone to use at ACOT for my March Die Cut Challenge.

Hope you can join me at both ACOT and Sketch N Scrap to play along! You have until March 31st for all entries!

TFL! 🙂

A couple of layouts

Good evening everyone! I’d like to share with you a couple of layouts I did over the weekend using my Cricut. February is such a short month, really doesn’t allow much time for anything!

Plant. I used the “Freshly Picked” cartridge for the gloves and gardening tools and my digi cart “Life’s a party” for the banner.


Life is Good. I used the pre-loaded CCR Basics for the very large heart.


Both the Freshly Picked cartridge and CCR Basics were the two carts I had selected to use for February. And stay tuned. In several hours, you’ll find out which carts I’ll be using for the month of March!


Adorable Furbabies – February, Week Three

Hi everyone and TGIF!! Its been another busy week for me, so before the weekend starts, I’d like to share with you what my furbabies were up to this week! Lots of OUTSIDE pics as it was BEAUTIFUL here in South Texas!

With the nice weather, Squirrels and Birds are making it out and about and they better watch out as they have Li’l Jackson to worry about now! LOL

Li’l Jackson LOVES to help me take sheets off the bed to throw in the washer.

I love how Penny is inside, watching Jackson, who’s outside.


Until next time, bark and meow on!

Crafting is the BEST Medicine!

Good morning everyone! Today I will be sharing with you the newest card sketch by Lisa Hidy at Sketch N Scrap.


It has so many possibilities! And here’s my take on it:


I used Bo Bunny “Pincushion” collection and moved the hearts over to the other corner. I turned the longer, skinnier piece into a banner and because the banner has “faux stitching” on it, I did the same around the light black cardstock.

Hope you can play along with us over at Sketch N Scrap! You have until the end of the month to submit your card. Make sure you check out the rest of the DT’s awesome work.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies – February 2017, Week 2

Good afternoon everyone! I have several adorable pics of the furbabies to share with you.

Penny and Jeffrey thought I should stop working. It was already after 4pm.


Here’s Penny playing with Jackson ❤

20170210_132745  20170210_132751  20170210_132810

I told Jeffrey and Penny “Say cheese for the camera” and here are the cute results!

And last but not least, I told Miss Penny to spit out a bug earlier today. I even threw it in the trash. This is the look I got. LOL. Can you say she was a bit peeved? LOL


Until next time, bark and meow on!

Love Your Smile

Good morning everyone!!! I have a new Sketch N Scrap sketch to show you:


And here is my take on it:


Its super girly, isn’t it? LOL!! These are some of my fave pics of sweet Lady Lou. She didn’t like the camera majority of the time, but when she did, just look at that face! ❤ ❤ Makes your heart melt!

I used Authentique pattern paper “Fabulous” collection. The colors reminded me of the Anna Griffin doggie collection from a couple of years ago. Too bad I can’t find anymore, it would be great to mix/match! The washi tapes are American Crafts & Little B; and the bling strands are Zva Creative. The journaling stickers are layered and are by MAMBI. The gems were given to me by my mother in law and the flowers are Recollections.

The title is cut using “Paper Lace” Cricut cart, which happened to be free the week of Feb 4th! I used a foiled speciality paper by DCWV, with gives the title some dimension, without using foam adhesive/pop dots.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT’s fabulous creations at Sketch N Scrap and hope you can join us this month and play along!

Adorable Furbabies – late January/early February

Good morning everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA with my furbabies posts. I’ve been swamped with work, then my hubby and I were in California for a week for his grandfather’s “Celebration of Life”. It was great seeing everyone, despite the circumstances. But overall, we had a wonderful time. So with this past week, just playing catch up with work related stuff. Just busy, busy!

Anyways…lets get started.

Jackson is hanging out with “his puppies” more and more. During the day, at night. Its so sweet! ❤



Jackson also likes to pull down towels and hide. LOL!


Its been a very warm winter and Penny just LOVES to roll around and play in the grass!

While sissy was playing, Mr Jeffrey was all smiles!


While we were in California, I got to spend some time with my mother in law’s doggie, Peanut. Ain’t he cute?!?!!

When we got home, we had li’l Jackson VERY happy to see us!


20170203_220656   20170203_221028

Not even 2 days later, hubby was off again for business trips (Houston, TX & Gallup, NM). Mr. Jeffrey wasn’t very happy. Poor guy, and neither was Miss Penny, sweet girl.



Within a couple of days, the “boys” became really good friends.


And on Wednesday, I caught li’l Jackson in mid-yawn. LOL


While I was making breakfast on Thursday morning, Mr Jeffrey wanted to see what I was doing.


By the afternoon, the babies were in chill-mode

Little Gamer

Good morning everyone! Today I have a fabulous sketch to share with you, designed by the uber-talented Sara!


And here is my take on it:


Pictures are of li’l Jackson with my husband. When Jackson was little (like 3 months old little), he would hang out and literaly lie right on top of Rob’s hand while he was playing video games. LOL. What a silly kitty!

Other than the Kraft cardstock, all other products are Echo Park “That’s my boy!” collection. I felt it was PURRFECT for these adorable pics!

TFL and make sure you stop by Sketches in Thyme to play along with us!
