Scrapbook Saturday

Hi Bloggers.

Here's this week's Scrapbook Page -

This is my cat, Smokey. She has to be one of the prettiest cats I've ever had - well I think so anyway. She's a very independent little cat, hates to be picked up and will only be stroked when she wants to be stroked. She's also very hard to photograph! Kathryn took these pics- some of the best of Smokey that I have.

I used some Brown 12 x 12 Card, some Teal 12 x 12 from Arctic Frog (mat on middle photo). The papers are from the Couture Creations 12 x 12 Paper Pad (I'm on a mission to use every sheet in the pad!).

The border is cut using Couture Creations Simplicity Borders Die Set. The title is cut using Spellbinders Font One Upper and Lowercare Alphabet Die Sets.

The fancy frame is cut using Sue's Dainty Rectangular Frame Die Set and the journalling is written on a die cut from Sue's Dainty Oval Frame Die Set.

Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Hi Julia
    I'm loving your scrapbook page. Love the border.

  13. Hi Julia

    First, I had to laugh as my dog is anything but camera shy! So I have lots of pictures I really should scrap book.

    Scrap booking seems a bit scary but your page demonstrates that less is more. i really think I shall give it a go.

    The cat is a real sweetie!

  14. Hi Julia, sweet pictures of Smokey! Very nice layout and use of dies and that paper is gorgeous. Have a nice weekend Maria~

  15. Hi Julia,
    I am afraid to say it - but I am more of a dog lover, however your caption made me smile. I think Smokey really shows the difference between cats and dogs without looking at the camera. She's lovely! Lovely page.
    Thank you,
    Love Myra

  16. Hi Julia, Smokey is beautiful, my Lizzie is the same doesn't like being picked up, but unlike Smokey, Lizzie will be stroked all day long haha.
    Loving your layout, a beautiful showcase of Smokey.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  17. What a lovely project, your cat is gorgeous x x x
