Adopt a Shelter Pet Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrappy and Piggy and the “Adopt A Shelter Pet” Hop! October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, but we wanted to honor and celebrate all of our furry friends! If you've come from visiting Melin at the Cooking With Cricut blog, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to and start at the beginning.

We recently adopted a new puppy. She is a little mutt, but we love her. I have used my cricut to make this layout and display some of her adorable baby pictures.

snooki layout [1280x768]

For this project I used two different cricut cartridges. For the little Snooki dog I used Paper Pups. I have to say this little dog looks a lot like her. For the rest of the layout, I used the Cricut Imagine cartridge Baby Boutique. This cartridge has some great elements. I printed and cut the frame with the crown and the title. The background paper which is kind of hard to see in the picture was also printed on the Imagine as well as the giraffe print border on the bottom. I added some bling to the crown and the title because you can never have enough bling!

I do have a small blog candy package to give away to one person who leaves a comment on this post.

Now it's your turn! Link up your purr-fectly wonderful pet-themed project at Here are a few guidelines:
