More vintage love:)

Hi Friends!

I have been in my scrapbook room all morning working on another layout.  In between working on the layout and fooling with Pandora,  I was looking though some of my previous layouts and I didn't realize how drawn I am to the vintage look. I guess that is my style??? I have always wondered how others see my work, you know?  So this layout is going in my Etsy store. I wanted to do something different with the title. I already had the layout almost done when I looked at that beautiful cameo and knew that the title needed to be grandma.  I also used my Martha Stewart punch a little different this time. I punch out a little of the edges on three sides. I think it gives it a little bit of interest. The flowers I used are Prima, I love Prima flowers:} They make me happy!

Thank you for stopping by!

Update on our sweet Murphy and some new layouts

Hi friends!

Well I have been on a very emotional roller coaster ride with our sweet little Murphy. After the many, many trips to the vet and emergency hospital we have finally found the problem. In the hands of a new groomer he some how got a severe head injury. He is much better now, but the last 15 days have been terrible! Needless to say he will never go back to that groomer again. In fact I was so angry and hurt that someone would treat our dog that way that I have decided to groom him myself. Now I just need to find out how:)

So in between the vet visits and all the medicine (did you know that doggies can take Valium, crazy I know?)
I have had many sales in my Etsy store:) so my stock was very low. So I found some time to create a few more layouts.

Here are two that I have created.  The first is a Vintage inspired layout. I used some papers that I had tucked away in my stash and the beautiful cameo I found at Michael's.  How pretty are the metal photo corners? I used some Prima flowers and my Martha Stewart punch around the page set. I love that punch!

The second layout was created from Webster's Pages. I have two big plastic paper holders full of Webster's page goodies. I always buy the Webster's Pages warehouse sale box. It has lots and lots of goodies!

The papers I used are from the County Estate line. The flowers are Prima and the little chipboard piece I picked up at Michael's. I painted it and inked the sides and the added a touch of Stickles. I also added some cheese cloth that I pulled almost apart. I love the look that it adds to my layouts.

I wanted to thank you all for visiting my blog. Please become a follower if you can:)

Take care!

My poor blog:)

Hi friends!

I have been bad about blogging. Shame on me!

Well for the last 10 days we have been going through some tough times. Our sweet little furry friend Murphy has been having some problems. It all started with this new (insert bad word here) groomer we took him to. I dropped off my perfect little 2 year old dog and what we picked up was not the dog we dropped off.

He was limping very bad and as the night wore on he could not walk and seem to be in a great amount of pain. So we thought maybe he some how injured himself and he will feel better the next day. Well we woke up Sunday morning and he seemed better, still walking a bit funny. As the week wore on he was not getting any better, so I took him to the vet. I told the vet all about the visit to the groomer so the vet discovered he had a bad yeast infection on all of his paws and blisters on the bottom of his paws. The vet did notice that Murphy was standing funny and his tail was in a strange position.

The dr. tried to "hurt" Murphy, by pulling on his leg, neck and middle. Murphy did not respond, so that told the dr. that nothing was broken, and he probably just hurt himself. He gave him a big shot of anti-inflammatory and a muscle relaxer. Well he did fine up until this Friday (march 29th) then he got worse and worse as the day and night went on. He got so bad that hubby took him to the emergency dog hospital. They thought it was some kind of back injury, gave him some medicine and told us to keep him quiet. We did.  So by Tuesday (April 2nd) he was really bad. So at this point I am so upset! What is wrong with our sweet dog.

I decided that he needed to go back to the vet, I called and got him an appt. for 4:00. As I was getting ready to go I heard Murphy's paws clicking hard on our hard wood floors. I ran to him and I know now that he was having a seizure. I got him calmed down and finished getting ready and took him in to see the vet. When I got into the examine room he started having another seizure. I still didn't know what was going on so I yelled for them to come in the room. By the time they got there he stopped. The vet walked in and as I put him up on the table he started having another one. So at that point the vet put Murphy in a short coma like state. Hoping that when he woke up he would be better. Well that didn't happen.

So the bottom line is that Murphy could have three different things, a concussion from trauma, or a deep inner ear problem, or a brain injury. We won't know anything for the next 3-4 days. I can't ever explain the pain our family has felt. For me all the wounds from losing Pita 2 years ago have opened up. We are using the same vet as we took Pita to, so in one room we had to say good-bye to Pita 2 years ago and in the next room our dog is having seizures. It is so scary. I don't know what happens if we find out that Murphy has a brain injury.

If you have read this far, please say a quick prayer for our Murphy.
