10/24/17 - "Bow Wow WOW..."

Happy Tuesday!
How have you all been?
It feels like, other than DT work, I haven't been here in a while.
I have been scrapping and posting my layouts on Instagram though.
I like posting there because I have more of an audience.
The only part I don't like, I feel like I need to limit my captions/descriptions.
Anyway, if you want to see my layouts on a more frequent basis check out my account:
On to today's layout:
"Bow Wow WOW What a Gentleman"
"Look at Spotty; such a gentleman w/ his paws crossed!

IDK why but Spotty always seems to lay w/ his paws crossed and we find it funny and sweet so I had to document it.

This is layout #73 of my 75 layout goal for 2017...
Almost there!
It also is layout #4 created for the Music Challenge over at SB.com.
This is a monthly challenge and every month is the same concept:
There are 4 categories and they each have their own twist.
This is the first time ever, despite participating in this challenge for YEARS, that I was able to complete all 4 categories along w/ the twists!
So, YAY me!

This category was #4 - Song (chosen by the host).
The song was "I Want Candy" by the Bow Wow Wows and we could use any part of the song: title, lyrics, artist name.. on our layout,
I went w/ the artist name and I included the twist of purple w/ the buttons (the top one is dark purple so it may look black but they are both purple).


Also Included in the following SB.com Challenges:

>In This Corner
- The BG paper already had the bow ties printed along the side

Everything except the "WOW" Alpha stickers
*INCLUDES TWIST* of using hoarded stickers

-Alphas (23)
-Word/Phrase (4)

1 - the large Black and White striped PP

10/16/17 - MIM #98

Happy Monday to you!
Today I am sharing Make It Monday Sketch #98 from "The Memory Nest" blog.
MIM Sketch #98

"A Place For His Head"
"While watching "Wonder Woman" at our friends' house, their dog Zeus decided to lay his head on David and fall asleep."

(09.03.17 <<< Oops,  Need to add the date!)

Too cute, amirite?!
So of course I had to get a photo of it!

I love this layout and how quickly it came together! It was one of those that once I got the colors and PP selected, all the other pieces just kinda fell into place!

The title came from a SB.com Challenge; the Music Challenge.
One of the categories is to choose a song title and use it on your layout. I used "A Place For My Head by Linkin Park, but changed "My" to "His".
Also the twist was orange, which was perfect because I was planning on using orange anyway!

Well, that's all from me today!
Hope you'll join us and play along w/ this, or our October 2nd, sketch!
You have until October 31st to enter your layout.

10/04/17 - "My Brown Eyed Girl"

This layout makes me happy!
But it also makes me sad!
The happiness comes from that adorable face w/ the little cheesy smile!
Also that BG paper w/ the colorful flowers that just pop!
"My Brown Eyed Girl"

The sadness comes from the fact that little 4 year old is not 4 years old anymore; she is now 15!
And the fact that she is at a stage where she hates taking photos...and is not fond of much, in general!
Teenagers, ugh!  Actually, more specifically, Teenage GIRLS, ugh!
My son wasn't like that... ever!

Speaking of my son, who turned 22 in June...
he moved out last month.
So I am halfway to being an Empty Nester.

Gosh why can't they just stay little?!

Created for the SB.com September Musical Inspiration Challenge
The person who signs up after you picks your song.
The song chose for me was:
"Brown Eyed Girl"
*INCLUDES TWIST* of using the color from your song on your layout.

Also for the SB.com October National ________Day , which I am hosting.
Inspired by October 6th, World Smile Day.

10/02/17 - MIM #97

Today I am bringing you sketch #97 from the Memory Nest.
If you're thinking it's been a while since I shared one of these, you're correct!
IDK what happened w/ me... but I totally missed the deadline's for both of the September sketches, DOH!

Anyway, October is a whole new month, so here we go...

I used a flipped version of the sketch for my layout.

 "His Good Side"
"This little guy is big enough to get his front hooves up on our couch now.

Basically the story is...
I was sitting on the couch watching TV, I was probably eating, and Hamlet jumped up and placed his hooves on the couch in front of me!
It was quite a shock as he had never done that before!
Of course I grabbed my phone and took a photo of him.
When I posted the photo to my Instagram account, one of my friends made the comment, "Hahaha! He's like 'make sure you get my good side'!" and I decided that if I ever scrap this photo I would use something similar to that as my title.

BTW - he has never learned to actually jump on the couch despite us repeatedly trying to get him to do so!
Looks like he peaked in 2015, LOL!

03/27/23 Planning with Urban Journal Season Ink

My printer was having issues and I fixed it but during the interim I was not scrapping and lost my mojo ::le sigh:: But I've still been ...
