LM #225 - Life's Lesson "Chocolate Pizza"

Morning all! Happy Sunday and guess what! Time for a new challenge at Lasting Memories and this week we are challenging you to create a layout showcasing a "Life's Lesson" .. I hope you can take a moment and pop by the challenge as well because there are some awesome layouts over there and some great life lessons too! Here's my take on this weeks challenge:

A few years ago, my cousin and I took our girls on a crafty road trip and we stopped at Boston Pizza for lunch. After lunch, the waitress asked the girls if they would like a "chocolate pizza" to which they both said YES PLS! Well!! When their 'pizza' came to the table, we all burst out laughing! It was the size of a toonie!!!! Life lesson??? Things aren't always what they seem!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day!

They Call It Puppy Love

So life in the Wilson household is settling, slowly (lol) and this little guy has certainly got a hold of my heart strings. Ashleigh loves him to pieces and he's crazy about her. With his crazy antics, his "i'm not tired" face, his "i'm grumpy and tired" growl before he crashes .. his 5 laps around the table to see who will catch him first to cuddling up on the couch beside you when he's had enough .. hubby took these today, but I didn't realize I was actually in the photo's so when he sent them to me I was surprised as I actually love the pics!

I think this last one if my fave

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend and cya back here tmw with a new challenge at Lasting Memories and a pretty funny layout :)

Baby "Ace"

He everyone! As the countdown to Christmas continues, I wanted to get in on the last challenge theme over at Lasting Memories which is "Anything Goes" with a holiday theme. This Christmas, our daughter asked for a pug. It was all she wanted. As most of you know, we already have 2 big dogs and 2 cats! Well, we couldn't disappoint our girl at Christmas and it's not the first time we've had 3 dogs and 2 cats lol so meet "Ace"

He's a pug/boston terrier cross and is quite a cutie! We brough him home last Thursday and he's doing pretty good with everything!

So here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season!!!

Aim for the Moon ...

Morning! This week we have a fun challenge at Digitally Sweet! We want your sentiment to be the main focus and we're sponsored by


I coloured up this cutie image in PSE and then did my page. Once it was done, I knew I had to have something to do with the moon (lol) so went looking for a quote and found this one! I thought it was absolutely perfect and I already had all the elements! A little humour never hurt :)
