Challenge 8

Its time for another challenge! This weeks theme is SPOILT!
We all spoil our beloved pets so lets see how you spoil yours!

This time we also have a very talented guest designer. Her name is Martha Bonneau and im sure we've all seen her fab work.

Hi, my name is Martha, I am 39 years young and I am totally addicted to scrapbooking. I started scrapping approx. a year and a half ago and have scrapped almost every day since then.
My inspiration is almost always 1 of my pugs, but I have been known to scrap humans every once and a while.I have been married to my hubby Bob for 7 years and besides the 2 pugs ( Mugsy and now Pixie) we have a kitty named Ivo.
Besides scrapping I also enjoy sewing, I think everyone I know has a tote bag I have made and I love making felt monsters. Things that make me happy are photography, anything with skulls on it, the color orange, 80's alternative music and the fact that I just made the zingBOOM design team and that I had one of the winning LOs in the Martha Stewart Scrapping contest. You can always check out what's going on in my scrappy world by going to my blog at

We love to see your layouts for the challenges so dont forget to leave a link in the comments.

Challenge 7

For this next challenge we want to see all those gorgeous faces. So the challenge is the face i love.

We also have a new member to the design team. Her name is Kim and here is a little about her: "Hi pet lovers! I am Kim Langston and I live in the country outside of College Station, Texas. My family has a combination of 14 dogs and 6 cats. I mainly scrap Baby (Yorkie) and Sugar (White Boxer) as they are my constant companions and the most photogenic. I have been papercrafting over 10 years. I am happy to join A True Friend challenge blog. When I am not papercrafting, I work full-time for my family's owned and operated wine distribution company. Kim"

New pets!

I just had to post to tell you about some new additions to some very lucky people's families!

First off, Katie has brought home the oh so beautifully gorgeous Willow...

How could anybody fail to love that beautiful lil face?! I do know that Katie is a VERY proud Mama, and that Willow will have a wonderful life in their house :)

Next up, something a little bit different perhaps?
Anita had a little shock when she discovered her Giant African Landsnails were to be proud parents to over FIFTY babies!

I think there is something quite loveable about them! My God daughter is having one (along with a lot of members of UKS ) and she is sooooo excited!
They are fairly easy to look after, and I thought it would be a good opportunity for Jasmine to have something that is totally her responsibility. She already has a cat, a parrot, and two guinea pigs, but there is only so much she can do to help, so this is something she can care for 100% on her own. I must admit I am quite tempted to have one too, Simba adores snails, crikey- pets for your pets!
