Ever start working on a project and visualize it to be something extraordinary and fabulous??? Then when it hits paper it is just there??? Well, this layout is one of those for me. I had this idea in my head for a couple weeks and then Cristal at Just Scrappin' popped up our sketch for the month and I was thrilled. I knew the picture would work wonderful with her sketch so I got started. By the time it was all said and done I was considering trashing it because it was not what I had envisioned. But, I decided that it wasn't THAT bad and why waste work done. So, without further chattering, I'll let you decide on what you think about it:


The picture is from a month or so ago when the cat decided to scale my scrappy cubbies. As soon as I clicked the picture she went flying because the snap startled her. The bottom picture was after the fall giving lovies - which is basically what the arrow says.

So what are you working on? I have a couple cards I want to do and another layout or two but trying to hold off since I'm going to a crop on Thursday. I want to be able to actually accomplish something this time instead of do nothing but talk so I am going to put together some page kits to take with me so I don't have to sit and think about what I want to scrap. Of course I'll take card stuff too in case for some miracle I actually finish the pages I plan then I will at least have something to do.

Have a great day!!!

Happy Scrappin'

This is so sweet, it typifies the saying "Curiosity killed the Cat".
(My mother always said this to me when I was a child and being nosey).

Again..this is just crackin me up gf! That cat is so funny! Beautiful LO to showcase it!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
