Two Layouts and a Sketch!

Hi! I've got two layouts to share with you today! I made them at the weekend crop I went to a couple of weeks ago. The first one is a Disney layout. We went to Disney World last Christmas to celebrate Mike's 50th birthday. Even though it was just the two of us and I didn't have the excuse of having a little one traveling with us, I wanted to meet the Disney gang anyway! So we booked several character dinners. We had a lot of fun talking and taking pictures with Mickey and his friends. Even Mike got into it! (and even though he's young at heart, he's still a pretty serious, no-nonsense kind of guy!) I dipped into my old Basic Grey stash for this one and used some flashy "June Bug" papers. I also created a grid of faux-stitching for the squares of papers and pictures (piercing holes with a Scor-Bug and drawing with a pen).

The next layout is based on this sketch by Kristine Davidson at Creative Scrappers

The title says "Cat Man... Despite Himself". It's about my poor dad, who has never particularly liked cats, but has been almost "forced" to become a cat man because of all the cats I've brought into his life, one way or the other! (Although I take no responsibility for the one in the picture (their neighbor's new, cute little kitten) other than "forcing" him to hold her for a while!) I  used another old Basic Grey collection for this one, "Boxer". A lot more white space than I'm used to in this one, and some more faux-stitching too!

That's it for tonight! Hope you're having a scrappy weekend!


Scrapbooking from the Inside Out, Kitties and a Sketch!

Hi there!

I have a layout to share today that I did for a challenge over at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out. This month's theme is "Fortune" and the first challenge was to scrap something that was precious to us. So of course, I had to do a page about my kitties! Sleeping with my cats is one of my little pleasures in life! I copied the famous credit card ads and did this "Priceless" page.

It's based on sketch #26 by Susan Stringfellow at Sketch Savvy.

I used some Restoration Crate Paper, which I still love. Love the richness of the colors! I also stamped and heat embossed a few images from the Basic Grey "Max & Whiskers" clear stamps.

I'm happy about how this one turned out. Gotta love a kitty layout!

Have a scrappy week and a happy Earth Day tomorrow!
