Another lazy Saturday afternoon, I am through with shopping and my house chores (or all that I plan to do anyway!) so thought I would use a kit I downloaded some time ago and forgot about. Of course, too lazy to take new photos so using some of the thousands of them that I have....I created another page each for the girls. The kit came without a TOU so I do not know who to give credit to. If anyone recognizes it, please let me know. The first is Pumpkin, then I did one of silly Oreo in the tree picking her teeth with a small limb and then MzKitty just trying to take the camera away from me while I was snapping photos. Whatever you do today, have fun. Chat more later! Luv, Mat

Monday, Monday, Monday....

I got to work to face problems, the phone system was not working, we have been having problems with power outages and I think it finally fried the whole system. I took an old phone to plug in so I would have service for phone calls. Then about mid day while printing statements, my printer decided to spit out blank pages, changed ink cartridges, still blank, but sure got lots of ink on my pretty white nails...UGH!!
Then, we got a message from the realtor where we had put a bid in for a house that had been foreclosed on, that they want us to counter with a higher bid...10k more than what they were advertising it for...I guess you know what WE told them...LOL!!!
Anyhow, ran across the photos I took of the flowers my sister sent for my birthday last month and decided to make a pretty cheerful page to cheer things up around here. Going to go watch Nashville Star and go to bed early since I don't have to fix dinner. Yippee! Y'all have a great week and will chat again later. Luv, Mat
O I used CJS's kit In the Mood to Scrap for this page. It is a great freebie and you can find the link on the right. Thanx ladies for the kit.

Cat Eyes

Since it is a lazy WARM Saturday afternoon and I am at loose ends for an hour or so I thought I would make a couple of scrap pages. There is a challenge on Scrapbook Flair of freckles and eyes sooooooo...why not a page of our darling baby girls' eyes. They are so trusting, loving and all seeing, Right? MzKitty has the golden yellow eyes, Oreo the gorgeous green and Pumpkin has orange eyes like her fur. Just thought this would be a cute page. Did not do it for the challenge, just for me and to share with you. There are 3 different kits used here, the background, black cat and frames are from Caw Paws but I do not know the author of the kit. The cat alpha is from Dog/Cat Alpha kit, but again I have no idea who created this kit. The quote is from Cat Bits by LLL Creations. Thanx for viewing this page. Later, Mat.

Caught in the Act

I wasn't very busy at work today other than making quick pages so I put this page together of the "girls" caught at different times doing their thing. MzKitty was standing in a chair at the dining table eating off the placemat. Pumpkin was sleeping in the bathroom sink basin. And last but by no means least, Oreo laying in front of my computer keyboard trying to help me....causes me to have to do a lot of editing when I type something. LOL! They are such a joy in our lives. Anyway, just wanted to say have a great week y'all! The kit I used for this quickpage was by PascaleA, a freebie called Belita! You can find a link to her site on the right under Pelins Designs. Thanx Pascale for sharing your work. Later, Mat

Purrfect Lazy Day

Today is the purrfect lazy day, too hot to go outside, too boring to watch TV and Mom is too busy to play, so we decided to rest, sleep and relax today. That is the GIRLS talking to ya! As you can see from this page, they are just snoring away. I am baking a pan of brownies for later and sorting photos I want to scrap and finding some new info on my ancestry search. Mainly, I am relaxing and scrapping...LOL! Whatever you are doing today enjoy it and the coming week. I used CJS' newest freebie kit called Just Scrap It. Later, Mat
