Ok I love pets! I really do, but when it comes to
neighbors having pets well lets just say not
everyone treats their pets the same.
For instance there is one that just ties theirs up so
it barks all the time!! No attention! Pets needs attention folks.
Then there is the ones that gets them and just turns them loose
for everyone else to take care of. 
I am talking about things being carried off, dog messes on my driveway, porch steps.
Patio furniture ruined by a neighbors muddy dog.
Ok yes I let mine on the furniture, not if they are muddy!!
And sleepless nights, porch is right outside my bedroom window,
so is it some one there or neighbors animal.
Well I tooo chicken to see so what do I do?
Stay awake wondering if some one going to come through the door.
Well after three nights I finally had enough and after two hours
of hearing noises ( I even put gates up to keep them off)
like some one coming through the gate
I bolt out the door to find a cat!
Not mine I don't have one.
All I can say is here Kitty Kitty the pound is looking for you.

I keep mine in my yard! I don't let mine outside barking all day
and all night. I know dogs bark but to hear one bark just because it wants
attention and the owners just ignore it drives me nuts!

Ok mine don't really think they are dogs so don't tell them they may start barking
out of pure shock :)

Well enough of my rant,
Here is some pictures of my fur babies :)
The bigger one Angel I rescued from the pound. 
She is one really great dog
The little one, Skipper is a Chi Poo
Isn't that sweet they are eating out of the same dish.

This one is just adorable!!

Ah he just wants to play too :)

Angel :)
Did I say she the best dog ever! I felt so bad having her on a leash here
She stays with me any where, but for her sake and everyone else I did at 
the conference center.

They are really really spoiled! oh and don't mention bye bye, they know what
that means :)

I have two teenagers 
and lots of times I hear "why not" "seriously" "really mom"
along with lots of others like "how come".
With playing with the template from Humpty Dumpty challenge
(yep it was last months) by
Keepscrappin Designs,
and my wacam tablet I had really fun being creative and
playing  with the blend modes.
Oh and the brushes.
I don't think dude came out too bad :)
I clipped papers for his clothes
I used Boyz Only by Ldrag Designs
and Teen Scene by Down This Road Designs and Memory Clips

Showing off some layouts

I have been busy scrapping lately and thought I would show off some
If you haven't seen the new Brownie Scraps, you need to check it out.
Especially if you love templates. i  never knew they are soo much fun and easy to
work with. I hardly used them before. I guess I thought I was cheating.

This one is of my sons checking out the creek while we are camping,
I was telling them that when I was little camping I would love to catch the lizards.
Of course I had to tell they were harmless. My youngest would look for them and catch several, and the
crawdaddies too. He came to me and said look Mom this one tried to bite my big toe, lol.
Here the layout, I used template Make a Wish by Scrapping Creations by Melanie

Kit is Makes Me Happy by Captivating Visions

Another one I did scrapping my youngest birthday. I had fun making this one.
I got really creative with the cup cakes. I got some transformers for the toppers and it came with
a great background that I fixed to the board. He loves transformers! It is hard to believe that he is 13!!

I used Template Twofer Vol 1 by Moments Scrapped

Kit This Side of Crazy by Amanda Heimann

I am now also CT'ing for Neverland Scraps, Blue Heart Scraps and Down This Road Designs.
I am really excited to be working with them!

Be sure to head over to Neverland's blog She has a challenge for August and there is still time
to create a layout for it and win a $5 coupon to here store.
here is the link, just copy and paste it in your browser, for some reason I can't link it

Guess I need to study up on blogger, though I have had no problems before :)

Hello Everyone

It's been awhile what is everyone been up too?

Have you read any good books lately?
I have gotten a nook and check out digital books from the library.
I just got done reading Defending Jacob.
A very interesting book with an unexpected twist at the end.
If you have read what are your views on it?
