My K9s

Since I call my website Creative K9s I figured it was time to introduce you to the
K9 crew who inspire me and keep me company when I create:)

This is Gibson. He is named after the guitar. He is 6 years old and a black labrador. He loves stuffed toys and hates his picture taken.

Maddie is a chocolate lab and the first lab I ever had! After Maddie it's a wonder we got two more:) She is loving and independant and is a wonderful agility dog. She makes me laugh and has a wonderful sense of humor. We call her "agressively affectionate". She is my heart.

Panda is a four year old australian shepherd. She is my soul. She is with me all the time and is one of the most loving dogs I have ever met. She picked me out and my life has never been the same. She is a therapy dog and visits patients in hospice. She has also started her agility career.

You can see three of my four dogs on the table. The table is a piece of agility equipment that is used in the courses. They all know to sit and stay until I tell them "ok". MoDean is a four year old labrador. He is goofy and Marley like. He eats everything including tissues and undies. We have to watch him like a hawk. He loves my daughter most of all. He can be over excited and very loving.

Pixie Dust Studios Masquerade Ball New Release

I love the New Release from Pixie Dust Studios. Such perfect images for Valentines Day and beyond. I could not just choose one image to showcase. I made and designed these little boxes to hold Valentines Treats for my Husband and my Daughter. The Romeo and Juliet box it colored with Copic Markers and embellished with Stickles, pearls, and a white opague pen for highligts. Wink the Jester is colored in Copics using my Daughter's favorite colors. He is embellished with flocking, and Stickles. I used K&Co. design paper and PTI cardstock. I even decorated the sides of the box using a Martha Stewart border punch and ric rac ribbon. Make sure to take a look at the Pixie Dust Studio Blog and take a look at all the wonderful images in the store. Also, make sure to visit the rest of the DT to see what they created. With a little magic and pixie dust anything is possible.
