Sparks #20 for February 19, 2018

A few years ago
Annie @ McGuffy's Reader
began sharing inspirational quotes on her blog.
Eventually others joined in and the
Sparks Blog Hop was born.

From Annie - "I believe we are all meant to be lights in this world.  If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going.  It is then we can begin to truly see each other."
Further, Annie says - "Together, we can light up the entire world with positive energy.

This is a huge fault with me and
also relates to what my dogs are teaching me-
take one day at a time and enjoy the moment.
I found that quote then added it to a picture I had taken on
vacation one year -
I thought how appropriate as 
the majestic paddlewheel boat on Lake Taneycomo in
Branson, MO, slowly makes it way around the lake so
that those on board are not rushed.

Hope you enjoy your day!

Caturday Art with Mom Kim and her Beaglebratz Ladiez

Mom Kim here-
wanted to join in this week's Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by
Athena and her mom over at

I stayed up late last night TELLING MYSELF-
get these pictures done now then you can post it EARLY Saturday morning - well that didn't work out well at all so
 note to self-
Now on with the art-
I am still using only the free version of piZap so-
using only one of the many Floral Borders I absolutely love
the end result.

I then decided to give each of my Ladiez their own picture.  
Here is Lady Shasta who is my more mature and regal(?) lady.
Random Border followed with a Random Overlay.
(the names piZap gives to some of their stuff is "so creative")

Now as for Miss Maizie - Ker-a-zy Maizie and my younger and highly immature juvenile dilinquent,
(much like her predecessor, Angel Shiloh was at that age)
I wanted something that sort of matched her personality so 
I used one of piZap's 
Pattern Border's and a couple of Floral Stickers.

Ok - this is a blog hop so get to hopping around and
look at all the other great art.

Postcards from Paris - Happy Valentine's Day

Mom Kim here-
I've been noticing something not quite right 
around here lately-
like it is just too quiet around here and
I can eat ALL of my meals without sharing.
Then I start seeing things laying around the house where the dog toys should be like pictures of

did my Ladiez want some toys from Paris?

Then I get these in the mail-
my Lady Shasta & Dougie Dog. 

and there was also this one from 
Miss Maizie & Zaphod

What the???
How is it they fly off to Paris while 
mom is stuck at home???

Oh yeah - guess they don't allow us humans
on da plane.

That must be why I found this Valentine card from
my Ladiez.

Mom Kim here-
Miss Maizie had asked me if I would help her with her invitation so this is what we came up with.  I also knew the Caturday Art Blog Hop was coming up so I decided to link up with
I know some of this is just pictures but
I did embellish a couple others using Pizap-
so far my favorite. 
The first picture with Miss Maizie in it is the heart picture -
I used the heart background on their website then added her picture plus the flower sticker from Pizap.  To finish, I used the red balloons overlay.
Then on the last picture with Miss Maizie I 
just added the heart sticker as well as the flower sticker by her ear.
She HAD to sign her picture so I added the text.
