The Furry Boy Ain't Happy

Morning folks...things are looking a tad tidier around here...the Fiskars Boys are back on their shelf but all is not well in the cubbyhole....
I have a feeling that ears may well be ringing at Fiskars HQ this morning...The Furry Boy's in the huff at missing out on his 5 minutes of fame...having a bit of a doggy strop and the cause of all the canine angst...
I was asked to do a Fiskars project for this month's Simply Cards & Papercraft with a Summer Theme featuring the Everywhere Window Punch..the punch that allows you to punch anywhere on your project.. right in the centre of 12" x 12" paper..if the fancy takes you.  Now scrapbooker I am definitely not but with the "L" plates in place..on a wing and a prayer I had a go and was feeling slightly pleased with myself thinking I'd nailed it...
BUT...apparently not...could I possibly change the photo to something more fun...oops how can I break the news to The Furry Boy that he is going to end up on the cutting room floor in favour of my second attempt...they've never met my gorgeous bundle of golden deliciousness so how could they know that when they handed out the fun gene...he was right at the front of the queue...

Not to worry he'll get over it....our morning stroll will do the trick and he'll be back to lazing around in the cubbyhole snoring his head off as happy as larry which means I can get cracking with the Configuration Box prep...I feel a "could sure use Mario the king of prep right now" moment coming on.
Catch up with you all tomorrow

  1. I can't believe they asked you to change the photo! I totally understand why the furry boy is not happy! I DO love the other photo too though. . .what a riot! Your layout is so fun, Kath! You should create them more often! Hugs! :)

  2. Oh dear I bet he's not happy. Such a great picture it was too. Never mind you'll have to put one up in the cubbyhole to keep him happy. Love the final picture, your layout is great. Have a fun day.Hugs x ChrisB

  3. Poor Buddy - did they realise that it was a beach in the North East of Scotland - sometimes the only fun you can have is hanging onto your Sou'wester!!!!

    Hugs to both

  8. Crikey crackers . . . no wonder the Furry Boy is in a huff. Don't they KNOW he's Fun with a capital F? Not to mention Famous!

  9. Awww poor Buddy - I'm sure he'll forgive you! The layout looks fab though with the other photo - especially love the bucket hat!

    Love Lynda xxx

  10. The layout is fabulous and the best thing about furry boys is that they love you no matter what! Also, you are the only other person I have ever, outside of my mother and myself, heard say the words "happy as Larry." it brought such a huge smile to my face just a his furriness always does. Thanks for the morning smile. eileen

  11. Poor Buddy but both pictures are just so cute ... I think you should frame Buddy's layout and hang it on your wall.
    Have a great day !

  12. Well - no offence to the little lad in the photo but I really do think that Buddy was the better option, he goes with the whole design much better ------- shall we start a petition.
    All the best with the prep.

  16. Hi Buddy so sorry you missed out. I think the layout with your photo is wonderful. Have a great day. Hugs Anesha

  17. He's gorgeous, that dog, but sadly he has no bucket on his head!
    I like the layout.

  18. Yeah, that kid is CUTE with the bucket on his head, but the layout with the Furry Boy is the winner in my book. Too bad for Fiskars!
