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! 🙂

Good Dog!

Good morning everyone! Can you believe its June already? The year is just FLYING by!

Today I have the latest Sketch N Scrap sketch to share with you. #130 designed by Lisa:

And here’s my take on it:

My sweet happy boy! Just look at that smile! I used all Doodlebug “Puppy Love” products on this one. I just love the bright colors paired with his black fur.

Hop on over to Sketch N Scrap’s blog to see the rest of the DT’s awesome take on this sketch and hope you can play along!

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.

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!

Sleep tight, sweet little Jackson

Good evening everyone! Its been raining off and on all day, so what’s a girl to do? Stay inside and scrap! And this layout uses the newest sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy:

lgs-3-1

I LOVED the design on this one. I used washi tapes for the diagnol part, and Tattered Angels mist and Shimmerz watercolors for the mixed media part.

I used Doodlebug “Kitten Smitten” collection – papers, die cuts, washi tapes and stickers.

The alphas are a quite the mixture. I used Cosmo Cricket (yellow alphas), My Little Shoebox (pink alphas), Basic Grey (grey alphas) and Amy Tangerine (black thickers). I chose a long title for this layout to be used for ACOT’s Use Your Stash Challenge, which was to use 2 or more different alphas, and to dig deep in your stash.
