Busy busy busy .....

Things have been happily tooting along here at my place .. work..home..kids..scrap .. the usual. We just finished the school holidays and the kids are struggling a little to get back into the swing of things - knowing my luck they will just get themselves sorted and they will be back on holidays for the September break lol.

But apart from that everything is going really well. Pippi is settling in nicely and it feels like we have had her with us always. We do have a couple of small issues with her but that is to be expected with a rescued dog - she suffers from separation anxiety, she is very aggressive towards other dogs (little dog syndrome) and she has food issues - but apart from that she is the most adorable loving little dog you ever did see. She has hubby wrapped firmly around her little paw! She has some cute bling now with her name and phone number on it and she is now FINALLY registered with the local council (thats a whole other story!). Here are a couple of recent photos of her - do you think she is looking happier?
I used Katie Pertiet's cute curled frames for this

In scrapping news - things have been pretty active at all my digi-places. Over at Pickleberrypop we have just sent out our latest newsletter which is super stuffed with sales, treats, tips and laughs. If you aren't subscribed .. why not? Click HERE to fix that up straight away lol! On the 15th July we also had our Monthly ScrapNchat which I really enjoy hosting - you should come along to the next one - I seriously laugh so much I nearly fall off my chair! We hold a chat every third Thursday night of the month @9pm EST - the next one will be .... 19th August!

I have been doing a bit of scrapping over at Pickleberrypop with some of the fun kits out at the moment - here are a couple of recent pages! Using Armina's Lovely kit

And she got together with the gorgeous Rubia from Studio Basic to make this super mouth-watering collab called Hey Girlfriend - the colours are to-die-for! Of course I had to use it to scrap a page about one of my bestest friends in world - Jane!

The Best!

Pippi is such a sweetie and looking well. It takes time to settle in as a rescue dog. Also I thought you were on the northside, I'm in Albany Creek but guess that you are probably closer in???

We really should catch up..

Pippi is looking incredibly happy. I don't think she will ever grow into her ears though, ROFL. Time and patience, that's all I can offer.
