Know This...

This is a sweet L/O I did about my little Yorkie and the mice we visit at Petsmart! Bella has never had any contact with a mouse, but this little saying on the L/O makes me laugh, b/c I know this is what she'd be thinking!!
Everything on this L/O is from Jenni Bowlin Aug. Kit except the Bazzill Cardstock, DMC floss, ColorBox Ink and Sharpie pen.
Hope you enjoy!!

Hey get out of that bag...

My yorkie in the cat food sack!
Need I say more?

My new find...

I bought this old wooden create at a flea market and it's perfect for all my clear stamps. I've had a hard time trying to find a good spot for my clear stamps, and an easy way to flip through them. This seems to work great, and it slides right under my craft table!!

Not just another pretty face...

I did this layout so I could tell Savannah's story about going from an abused dog to a Pet Therapy dog. I worked so long a hard with her and learned so much about myself as well. My trainer, Linda Hoffert, was so great with both of us. If it wasn't for her we would not be the great therapy team we are today! Hope you enjoy Savannah's story!

Our get a way....

My sweet hubby took me to Cancun, Mexico for a week of R&R!! I'm going to have major surgery in 2 weeks and we wanted a little down time with just each other!! Also our 4 year anniversary was the following week, so we killed two birds with one stone! We had a great time, we met our first hurricane and her name was "DOLLY"! Here are some of the pictures from our great week away!

Hello Cancun!!

The view from our Cabana!!

The Lobby of our resort and my hubby having some coffee.

A romantic dinner in MEXICO!!

Hurricane "Dolly" hit us while we were in Cancun about a day and a half into our week vacation! It was really scary, and cool to watch such a huge storm hit. It wasn't as bad as we thought it would be, however the beaches were a mess and clean up was a lot of work for the hotel staff!

Very large turtle tracks, we got to see the eggs she laid. The resort we were at dug them up and put the eggs in a safer place. She laid over 100 eggs!!

My husband putting on the sunscreen, which we needed so very much of! He's such a cutie!

Our Cabana! We loved facing the ocean everyday and getting some good R&R in this lovely cabana.

I was looking through some of my older layouts and found this one I did three years ago. Not a lot has changed in my life, my hair is longer and more funky. I really should do a page about myself every year, it would be fun to compare my thoughts and feelings. I think I'll do that, right now while it's fresh in my head... I'll post it when I have it all finished!!

My Life...

I love this layout of Henry and Dan, my two boys! This is a VERY simple l/o but I really wanted the pictures to stand out and to tell the story!
While I was cooking dinner Henry was telling me a story and I picked up my camera, (always close by) and started snapping pic's of him. Then here comes his dad, and then the story ended with these two "horse" playing and me trying to get the rest of the story! I never got the story but I did get some great pic's of these two!!


I did this page to honor my sweet Savannah. (I rescued her out of someones front yard, tied to a tree with her muzzle rubber band shut.) I asked the people that had her tied to the tree if I could have her, and they said I had to pay for her, so I gave them all the money in my wallet, $31.00!! This is the best $31 dollars I've EVER spent. Savannah needed a lot of work, and some TLC. She has now become a Pet Therapy dog for adults with disabilities and a rehab hospital. We are so luck to have her in our lives, she is a true angel and I wanted to show case her in all her beauty!!
