My Latest Smash Book - Subject - Our Puppy, Coco

Back in August, I shared my latest Smash book that I'm working on.
The title/subject for this Smash Book is our puppy, Coco.
You can watch the video here, if you like.
I bought the Retro Blue Smashbook, because I love the soft blue color on the spine.
I love to use Smash books because there's no right or wrong way to add things to the book. Also I use my scrap paper and that saves me money and its a great way to use my leftovers.
The first two pages are where I share when Coco was born, June 7, 2013 and she weighed 2 pounds and 4 ounces when we got here, so very tiny!
Even now it's fun to look back at the pictures and the list I put together.

Because we have cats, we have lots of cat toys! With Coco being so tiny, she loves cat toys, most of the dog and puppy toys are too big for her! And how Coco loves the stray kitten that we recently brought into our home - they are buds and are never without each other. 
This is a great example of using paper scraps. I have several pages of Heidi Swap Sugar Chic paper  scraps and I used my circle punch and cut out lots of circles for this one. Did you notice the pet tag
on this page? When I got it in the mail, it was cracked and the company sent me another one so I glued this one together and saved it for this book.

When I say that Coco is a smaller dog, she really is small. She's a Shorkie which is
Shitz Ysu and Yorkie and will most likely weigh 5 lbs on a good day.
I ordered some fun toys from a great online store, Baxter Boo but they ended
up being too big. Unfortunately these pictures show on my blog darker than they really are
and it was so funny watching Coco trying to lug them around.

This is my most recent pages in the Smash book. Last Monday, Coco
had her first grooming appointment, she was so shaggy and her hair was getting
so long and scruffy.
When I went to pick her up, I couldn't believe this was our same puppy!
So cute and now we can she her face and her body! And I thought
the orange bow was so cute. I made sure to tell my hubby not to
throw her bow out when it fell out, he already knew not to throw it
Next page in the Smash book - Halloween.
Yes, Coco does have an outfit!
In the meantime, I rearranged and reorganized my craft room and began working on some goodie bags made out of envelopes.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Day 28, 29 & 30 Challenge

Now that's October, I'm finally getting around to completing the photo-a-day challenge for September.

Day   28: On the shelf
My Filofax is typically in my purse and I can pull it out quickly to write things down.

Day 29: Love
I love cute post it notes that are packaged in a small space with lots of coordinating post it notes in various sizes. This makes for easy decorating the pages in my Filofax!
Day 30: Wide Open
Since my Filofax is small(pocket size) it doesn't lay flat but its still very easy to write down things.
I've written down a makeup project that I read about that I want to see if I can find the next time I
visit Sephora or Ulta. Aren't those stores fun to visit?
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday.

Day 25, 26 & 27 Planner Addicts Challenge

We're coming down to the end of the photo-a-day challenge for Planner Addicts Facebook Group.
Today I wanted to share three days in order to finish up the challenge tomorrow.
In October, I'll be concentrating on my Smash book and a birthday banner!

25: Pockets
Inside my Filofax pocket is a space to hold credit cards, gift cards but I use these
pockets to hold clips and some smash post it notes. One thing for sure, this can change weekly depending on what I want to work on while at work.

26: Pen Case
I use this Hello Kitty to tote my pens to work., the little pencil case came from Michaels craft store, I think I paid $2. But I also have a more expensive organizer that I got from Mochi Things and it cost $30.95!
 27: Planner Charms
The hubby and I were in Las Vegas in March for a spring vacation and I picked up a couple of charms. This is the perfect size for my Filofax and I remember our trip every day!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week!
