Who Rescued Who?

My son sent me this sign the other night that said, "Who Rescued Who?"


He said it reminded him of me and our new rescue: Handsome. I guess it's true to some point, because when I'm holding him, or playing with him, I think to myself...who's happier, Me? or Handsome? LOL

This was "Hank" and "Handsome" (we named them because they had no tags) back in September when we found them along a busy intersection about 5 miles out of town. 
Hank is up for adoption at the San Antonio Human Society, I still worry about 
him. I KNOW he's in good hands there, but I just hope and pray he finds a forever loving home. 
We had 3 big dogs already, and just could not keep both of them.



And this is Handsome. He gets along well with our poodle Bella. They play together which is big plus, because Bella needed a playmate. 

Have a blessed Wednesday!

Thanks again to Judy's Ark and Fresh and Clean Dog Grooming for all their help!

Week 46 in my Ochre Malden & Some Handmade Dividers

First of all...Thank YOU to all the service men and women that have served and protected our country in the past and present. God bless each and every one of you. I, myself, have several veteran's in our family. Thank you!!!!




Everyone that knows me, knows I love animals....always have. They are God's creatures, and I care for them Great and Small. 

For Week 46 I'm using some super cute dog stickers I found at WalMart, plus I'm using a Poodle Paper clip that I bought off someone on our Facebook group. :) I'm so happy I got these from her!



The other day I was at Michael's and found these on clearance for $3.

I loved the dividers w/ tabs at the top. It had cardstock sheets, embossed papers?, stickers, and 4 sheets of photo page protectors. (I'll show you how I used those on another post later). 

I cut some of the dividers to fit my  planner and laminated them. Now they fit perfectly in 
my Personal size Ochre Malden Planner. 

I will using the other bits and pieces of this kit when I'm making handmade cards. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed Tuesday.

Journaling Bible: Jeremiah 31:3

Happy Monday to all of you! Hope your week has started out with a smile! I am off today so it was so nice getting up at my own my pace. No rushing around...even got to make breakfast for the hubby and myself!

Today's verse is Jeremiah 31:3
"I have loved you with an Everlasting love."


Again, I used random stickers. I have such a large stash from my scrapbooking days, so I usually 
look thru that before shopping. The "Love" sticker was from a valentine's set. It said "Love Stuck" so I just cut it apart. :)
I found the Washi Tape at Home Goods in a set of 4. 

Have a wonderful Monday!

Journaling Bible: Be Still.......

Hope your Friday is going well! I am enjoying my day off. Taking things slow and trying to get some stuff done around the house.
I stopped for a while, to do some journaling in my bible.

In all honesty...I started this page with Distress Ink...and thought, "OMG! What have I done!?" 
I've seen others use it, and it looks so pretty...but when I applied it, I knew for sure, I had ruined my page. 
I took a step back, took a deep breath, and thought to myself, "It will be okay. You are not trying to win an art contest. Keep going." Which by the way, I could never win any kind of art prize!! LOL

Isaiah 46:10: "Be Still and Know that I am God."





 I used some alphabet stamps for "be" by Autumn Leaves. 
The word "STILL" is some rub-ons by Making Memories that I normally LOVE using, but I'm guessing w/ the distress ink had a hard time sticking....
The other letters are random alphabet stickers. 
In all...it's okay. Not one of my favorites...but the verse itself IS one of my faves!!!

Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Journaling Bible......Arise, Shine.....

Hope your week has started out well. It sure has been a busy one so far! 

Today's entry is plain, in my opinion. I guess because I don't usually aim to "Wow" someone with my layouts. I go with how I am feeling, or a simple way to get the verse across. 

So here's Isaiah 60:1

"Arise, shine, for you light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you."


Have a great day! Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Journaling Bible: I can do ALL things.........

Good Monday to you!!! Still trying to adjust to this daylight savings, usually takes me a few weeks! 

Today I'm sharing, Philippians  4:13

"I can do All things through Him that Strengthens Me!"


Hope you have a blessed Monday!

Week 45 in my Planner and Some Rescue Dogs.

This week in my planner I am using this cute dog character I just discovered: Boofle. Why? Well, read below:

About 2 months ago, we discovered these dogs on a busy farm road. Someone had dumped them there to fend for themselves.It took some coaxing but we finally got them to trust us and we put them in our truck and brought them home. 

With the help of our local shelter: Judy's Ark and local groomer Fresh and Clean Dog Grooming, they were cleaned up, neutered, and given all shots. They were ready to be adopted into a forever, loving home. 

We decided to keep the little one, he was named by our groomer: "Handsome". He got along really well with our black poodle Bella, so we decided to make him a part of our family. 

Sadly, we could not keep them both. We already have 4 other dogs of our own. 

Here's the before and after photos:

                    This was back in September when we found them. They slept in brush and among trash. As 18 wheelers and traffic went by them, they sat and waited for their owners to come back. 

I named this one Hank, he is up for adoption at the San Antonio Human Society.

And this is Handsome today:

And these are my planner pages for this week...in honor of Hank!
These stickers are super cute. The dog's name is Boofle. Found them at WalMart in the card section. 
 I've never heard of this character, but
to me, he resembles Hank. A dog I am thankful I got to help.

This is in my personal size Ochre Malden. 

and in my A5 Pink Domino.

Have a wonderful Sunday!!
