Trimming Her Nails

What? You don’t think a dog getting her nails trimmed isn’t scrap worthy? It probably isn’t, but as you soon will learn, I have an unhealthy obsession with the little dog Pancakes.

My bichon hates getting her nails trimmed, or at least I always thought she did. Normally it takes an extra groomer to hold her down, but for some reason this time she just wagged her tail and smiled at me. (Yes, I’m aware that I just said my dog smiled at me. I told you it was an unhealthy obsession). I was so pleasantly surprised by her reaction that I had to snap a picture (which therefore meant it would be scrapbooked in the future.)

I don’t do a lot of pages with only one photo, so I really had to figure out what to do with the space (hence the double mats).

I can’t actually tell you what the paper is because I got it from a garage sale. It’s super cute though. I took a photo of it before I put the title down so you could see the little bone paper. Everybody needs dog themed paper!

The green plaid is from DCWV’S The Christmas Stack from a few years back. I’m sneaking that Christmas paper into any layout I can…Because, honestly who needs 180 sheets of Holiday paper? Yeah, not me. I don’t know what I was thinking when I bought it, but I doubt that I’ll ever be scrapbooking eight thousand Decembers. The ‘happy’ journaling card was a free download from Citrus & Mint’s Color My Spring Set, and I typed the journaling before I printed it on card stock and rounded the corners. Parchment paper for the title was from the local office store, and I cut the title with SCAL and my Cricut. I also cut out the bones from the same paper.


See how I mentioned my obsession with my Pancakes, the world’s cutest Bichon? Well, she also makes the world’s best scrapbook buddy. I moved an extra IKEA chair next to the one I sit in, so she can sit next to me while I scrapbook (if she’s not gnawing on the million bones all around the basement). Here she is while I was working on this page.



Tool Stickers!

I’m not trying to make you jealous or anything, but I got these tool stickers at at garage sale for $.75. You can clearly we the $2.99 sticker on them!

Seeing as I’ve been taking photos of our house DIY projects for my scrapbook, these will be perfect!
