Prepare yourself for lots of scrappiness from me in the days/weeks to come! I have had sort of a windfall of goodies coming my way in the last two weeks!!! Lots of new goodies to play with!!
This layout features one of my favorite photos of my daughter and our cat, Cloudy. Cloudy is older than Susie by about 3 years. From the time she was born the two of them have been joined at the hip. Even now, when Susie goes to bed, Cloudy is right on her heels, ready to settle down for the night!
I used Imaginisce papers from the Enchanted line. I used a paper doily by WRMK behind the circle. I made a rosette using my Tim Holtz Sizzix die to mimic the flowers on the papers, adding a couple fun feathers behind it. The letters are Thickers and Cosmo Cricket. The "Piece It Together" challenge over at the Imaginisce blog this month is to create a paper piecing for your project. There was a time when I didn't do a page WITHOUT a paper piecing. In fact, I used to make them and sell them on Ebay!! That's when I was a SAHM and had more time. Now I just don't have much time to spend on this. This little kitty is fairly simple though and I was definitely out of practice adding the highlights with chalks. In fact, I had to wipe the dust off my chalks, its been so long since I used them! And by handmaking these embellishments, it qualifies for the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs.
