#343 - Furry Friends ► Majo

Hello my crafty friends,

it's Majo here today to host our new challenge. 

 The theme this week is 


So get out your dies, stamps, stickers or whatever you like most and join our fun!

This is my inspiration for you, one of my favorite Tim Holtz dies ...

Check out what the awesome girls on my design team have come up with .....

I chose to use this photo of my daughter's boyfriend and their two dogs on a paddle board this past summer.

Did someone say Furry Friends?!
I am a huge animal lover and have 3 of them.
This layout is of 2 of them, one who is no longer w/ dog.
We did adopt another pet before her passing bringing us temporarily up to 4, but now we are 3.
This is Ivanna (dog) and Panini (cat) doing their favorite thing: sleeping!


The first thought that comes to mind when I hear Furry Friends is these two best buddies. Unfortunately we have lost our Tucker (the one further back in the photo) since this due to cancer but we are so fortunate to have so many great memories with him!


Here is my best furry friend Mini. I think it's the cutest thing ever
when she sleeps with her tail curled over her nose.


Our Furry Friend :) and part of our Family

This is my furry friend; my chihuahua Lila.  She was having a terrific time visiting her Dad at the firehouse a few months back, so I decided she would be the perfect subject matter for this week's theme "Furry Friends".

Challenge #342 - As Time Goes By

Hey everyone!  Welcome to our first challenge of the new year!  It's Gail hosting and our challenge is  As Time Goes By.

My layout showcases photos taken in the 1960s at a pioneer village somewhere around Toronto.

I was inspired to create a comparison layout:
my son and I when he was still drinking out of a bottle -vs- my son and I
 now that he is old enough to drink wine.
Yup, time has certainly gone by!

For this challenge, I did a layout about ringing in the New Year.  And since I used my traveler's notebook to make my layout, I felt free to dig way back in my stash and use some die cuts I have had for years, including this clock representing the passage of time on the spread.


I did a layout with our little guy and his cousins talking about how it feels 
like just yesterday that his cousins were his size!

I opted to scrap a layout involving Disney and ice daughter is a big fan of the Mickey ice cream and she gets one almost every time we go!

Challenge #341 - Christmas/Holidays

Good Morning and welcome to this week's challenge of Christmas/Holidays. 

Such a broad subject for a challenge as you can go many different ways with this challenge. Christmas to me is about being with family and friends and then there is the shopping thing that happens too :) 

Christmas is also time to send and receive Christmas Cards ......

Just a couple of the many cards I created this year to send out

 I have additional photos of cards I made over on my blog. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Let's see what my fellow design team members did with this challenge. 

I wanted a wreath for my doorway but wasn't liking any I saw in stores.
Raid the scrappy stash and voila! (2 sided even!)

Merry Christmas everyone!

The past few years we have had a much smaller tree but I love it!


I send a ton of Christmas cards each year and usually only make a few of each design. This particular one I made for some of my staff members at work.

This was one of several pictures I took of my girls almost twelve years ago trying to get the perfect Christmas card shot.  My youngest would not stop giving me her cheesiest smile.  I decided this pic along with some Doodlebug paper would be the perfect holiday scrapbook layout.


Every year my husband makes a lot of fudge and I make a lot of fudge boxes.  Please head over to my blog to see several styles of fudge boxes for Christmas gift giving.

**Sorry, we had an issue with the linky!.  If you created a card on Monday feel free to link it up on Tuesday**
