Bunny Dog

This page is of the photos I took of Buster this Easter. For the last four years he has been wearing these cute bunny ears headband I make. You can buy them here. Each year the photos look the same I like to change up the layout. on the pages. Here is what this page looks like:

Poker Dog

This layout is sure to bring a smile to your face.  The costume was something I made for Buster for a pet costume photo contest. I love these photos of him. I think he has a good poker face and a great hand.
5 ACES.  I think he is a little cheater.

Supplies: cardstock, rub-ons spray ink, ribbon and metal frame.
Sketch for this page was from Sketchy Thursday. Since I made 8 x 8 pages I adapted their sketch to accommodate the size of my photos.
Thanks for stopping by.

Another Silly Layout

This is the last page I made last weekend. This one was based on Sketchy Thursday 7.14 sketch.
This style of layout is one I don't do often enough . I love the boldness of the journaling tag. It also has my two new addictions on it, spray ink and pom-pom trim. This page sure makes a statement.

Easter Layout

This page is the second page on a 2 page layout I did about Easter traditions. This page shows the food that my family have every Easter. I used July 21st sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches for the second page.

Here is what the first page looks like. This page was lifted from a lady on Club CK.

Even though they look is different they work well together since I used some of the same elements on both pages. I used a the same kind of banner and I used floral elements on both.

Here is 1 of the 3 layout that I made this weekend. I used the #19 sketch from Frosted Designs.
Property of MJ's Kraze
I love how this came out. I love the circles in the background. I brought an unexpected element to this page which is the tag. It is a Formica counter top sample that I dressed up with a sticker, paper, floss and a button. The word "tennis" is actually a brad that is shaped like a tennis ball. How perfect is that? 
Thanks for stopping by. I will be show you the last two layouts I made this weekend later this week.

A Layout

Here is  page I did for this week using a Frosted Design sketch #18.
Here is the sketch:
Here is my take on it.
Property of MJ's Kraze
I was able to put this page together within 30 minutes. I love the simplicity of this sketch which allowed me to add items that I would normally wouldn't use. Like that star I had that for years and I finally found a use for it that really makes a statement.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

News and Roasted Veggies

  My news is about one of my Artfire studios ( Critter Crafts) I have recently decided to close it and move all my pets items over to MJ's Kraze. This means that you can shop from this one studio to find handmade items for you and your pet. This does not mean that I am trying to get rid of pet items. I am still adding new pet items to MJ's Kraze. I just wanted to simplify my life so I had more time creating.
  As I promised I am going to show how to make these veggies that my dad just can't get enough of.

2/3c. extra virgin olive oil
5 large zucchini 
2 large onions

Fourth of July.

  Happy Independence Day everyone. I just wanted to show off a card I made using red, white and blue.
Property of MJ's Kraze
This card is just made out of plain cardstock, stickers, a star punch and adhesive jewels.
I love to cook and you sure can tell that since I make everything from scratch, including the barbeque sauce.   
   My 4th of July food is potato salad, barbeque turkey, and strawberry pie and I think my dad is going to talk me into making some roasted zucchini. I think he is addicted to the oven roasted veggies.
I will post some pictures soon and maybe I will let a couple of the recipes out.
So what are you having?
God Bless you and America. Let freedom reign..
