jillibean and g45 layouts and hilo scare.

I’ve been super busy this week. I’m not complaining though. Busy is a good thing, right?! 😉 I was worried that I wasn’t going to be able to get my scrap on this week, but I’ve been making sure that I get my playtime.

Jillibean Soup hit the store today, so I created this layout using their new Apple Cheddar Soup line. I didn’t use any of the gnome stickers/embellishments on this one, but it’s so darn adorable. I seriously want to hoard it all, haha!

Shout out to my good friend, Angel. She has the most adorable little boys, and I’m always so thrilled when they come into the store to give Auntie Sarah hugs. Don’t these photos work so well with these papers?!

…and look at what you can do with leftover ribbons! I just took coordinating colored ribbon and arranged them to create and embellish my border.

I struggled with my second layout because as we all know, I’m horrible at vintage stuff. I like upbeat colors, so it was a challenge for me. The Graphic 45 products I used, however, are gorgeous!

Here’s a layout of Gloria and Phil — they’re adorable in these photos. They’re actually some of my favorite photos, as a matter of fact!

The flowers are actually a Hambly transparency; I cut out all of the pretty flowers and layered them on top of a Graphic 45 paper. I love that layered look.

Pat on the back for me for getting stuff done!

My poor little Hilo had a scare earlier this week.:(

He was hanging out at Grandma and Grandpa’s place last week, and we were told he looked really lethargic. Odd… because he’s always bouncing off the walls. He kept itching, and his skin was bright red. We took a closer look at his skin, and he was infested with fleas! Icky! Super gross! We always have flea protection on him, so it was really weird to see them on him. Both Maui and Hilo never get fleas, so it was a shocker. 😦

Just to be on the safe side, we took him in to see the vet. Turns out he’s allergic to flea saliva from their bites. Yikes! The poor thing had to get injected with a steroid and wear a cone to prevent further infection.

Now, he’s doing much better… and he’s pretty much bouncing off the walls again. I like him energetic better than when he’s a sick pup. 🙂

PS: Why can’t it be the weekend already?!

    Also, I have a wall of photos at my apartment that was in desperate need of some updating. There are a few photos of you and me up now! Haha. 😀 My favorite is the one that speaks in a Southern accent…

  8. oh my gosh, my lab is allergic to flea saliva too! Every once in a while we are a couple of days late with his monthly flea stuff, and then we notice a patch of fur missing on him (from chewing where it itches)! Weird thing for a dog to be allergic to, huh? I’m glad Hilo is okay 🙂
