Once Upon a Time Under the Sea


Today, we are participating in the Once Upon a Time Blog Hop
hosted by Lord Shiloh and Lady Shasta and sponsored by Oz Tours!


Now...to our Fairy Tail!

Once upon a time there was a most beautiful princess, who always longed to visit the fishies under the sea! 




One day her Fairy Godturtle granted her wish!




At first, the princess loved being under the sea.



 But soon, with no other puppies around she got lonely.....and then



the Princess realized it WAS WET under the sea....and if there was one thing she hated more than anything else, it was being WET!!! Needless to say she asked her Fairy God Turtle to please return her to dry land.



Of course, the moral of the story is 
NEVER EVER GO ANYPLACE WHERE IT IS WET!!!
Even if there are pretty fishies and stuff

THE END


hosting such a great Blogville Event!

Going Green for Greenies!!! #ChewyInfluencer

 This month Sydney, our bestest friend over at Chewy.com,  put our most favorite treat EVER on the list for a #chewyinfluencer review.  Needless to say, we told Mama we DESERVED to review Greenies because we have been putting up with all her silly photo shoots!! We pawed Sydney back and the Greenies were here lickety split!




Did I mentioned these are our MOST FAVORITE TREATS EVER???  They are so good that we agreed to yet ANOTHER silly photo shoot with Mama to help show you!




Greenies come in 4 different sizes to choose and in different styles too! We all get the Petite size, but Arty gets the Grain Free Greenies and sometimes I get the ummm..."Weight Management" kind. 
Head over to Chewy.com to find the right type of Greenies for you!!


 Greenies also are known for their ability to keep our breath fresh and toofers clean, right Dory??



 That's right, Jakey!!
Nothing is better for a good pawrent/pup relationship than a treat that is good for you and
TASTES DELICIOUS!!!




 Come on Mama, stop being so artsy fartsy and GIMME THE GREENIE!!!



Don't you know it is WRONG to tease the doggy???
(from Mama: 2 minutes later the Greenie was safe in Dory's tummy)





 Jakey is the Greenie KING of the house!!



 He knows just how to "brush his teefies" with Greenies!
Great Job, Jakey!!

We give Greenies ONE MILLION PAWS.....ok, maybe 12 paws up!!
(Bilbo doesn't eat Greenies, but he says if they come up with a Pumpkin Flavor he'll be the first to taste test them!!)



Greenies and Chewy.com, two great things that go great together!!!


As #chewyinfluencers, we received a package of Greenies in exchange for our honest opinion. We were not paid for this review and all of the opinions are either ours or our Mama's.


 
We are climbing aboard the Chewy.com Blogger Network Blog Hop!! Thanks Sugar and Oz for hosting!!

Fairy Tale Fun - A Jakey Pizap Review Tutorial

 Jakey here, to do a quick Pizap refresher!! 



 With the Once upon a Time Blog Hop coming up next Friday, I thought we would do a quick
and easy picture you could use at the beginning of the post!
(Click HERE to transport over and learn more about Blogville's Once Upon a Time Blog Hop!)

 
 First, let's go to Pizap.com and click Start



 Then, since we will be editing an existing picture, click Edit.




 Now, select the photo you would like to use. Mama stores all our pictures on our computer, so we are clicking on computer!


Then we chose the photo we wanted to use!


 Next, let's add a frame! Just click on the little "frame" at the top of the picture. Pizap has dozens of frames to choose from, so take some time to browse and choose one you really like!


 Dory wanted a frame that went with her ocean themed Fairy Tale, so we went with this blue swirly frame!


 Now let's add some text!! Click on the "T"!



To choose the type of font (text type) you would like to use click on the little drop box arrow. Again, the have lots of different fonts, take time to choose the one you want! You can adjust the size of the font, by clicking the little arrow to the right of the side of size box.



Then, just type the text in the box!
 Once you have things the way you want, just click OK!



Now, let's add some finishing touch stickers!!
OMD...Pizap has TONS of stickers!!




We decided to stay with the underwater theme and added some fishies and star fishies!! 




Now that we have things the way we want them, let's go ahead and save the finished product by clicking "Save" in the upper right hand corner.




 Then click "Save"



 If you are like my Mama, you may want to write down where it is being saved  so you don't have to listen to your Mama saying HBO words to the computer later!



Then Ta Da!!! You have a picture for your Fairy Tale!!



Thanks for joining me today! To learn more about editing in Pizap and PicMonkey, head over and visit my Artist Tutorial Page by clicking HERE.
 Now, I'm off to take a nap!
