SPCC #40 & Inspiration in Action Weekend Sketch Challenge 122


Bound for Los Angeles, California in T minus 12 hours. Yay!!! A bunch of girlfriends are getting together to celebrate Jennifer's stagette. I'm very excited to get away. I'll be gone till next Wednesday so I had to stay up and play this week's SPCC challenge. I haven't missed a week since I stumbled onto the site and I won't let a little vacation get in the way! I decided to pair it with Gretchen's Inspiration in Action Weekend Sketch Challenge 122. It's the first time I've played with Gretchen's sketches and I loved it!! Here's my take on both challenges. 
So Khuno got groomed on Tuesday at Fabulous Furballs and I was a little disappointed this time around. Fabulous Furballs is one of the few places that teaches students how to groom pets. So if you let the students take a stab at your pet it's 50% off! Normally they do a great job but this time he basically came back shampooed and blow dried. He didn't get his winter coat thinned out like he normally does and he was still shedding a ton! Oh well. For $35 it was still well worth the money to have him smell all non-dog and lovely! We did, however, decide that his furry "speed lines" behind his legs/elbows needed to be trimmed. After a few snips with my craft ribbon scissors, I went a little cutting happy and trimmed his belly and his bum too! His little bum is so cute now! It's perfect round and bobs back and forth when he walks with his now very tiny legs! Here's a little shot for your enjoyment!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Talk to everyone in a week! =)
