"That Darn Cat" or "Cats"!!!

Happy Sunday morning to you and guess what it's snowing again!!
I have been taking a lot of snowy pictures and felt it was about time I started trying to do some more Scrapbook layouts and actually used them!!! I have used the sketch at Cats Corner shown below, and you also have to have a cat in there somewhere - this is my surviving cat, Poodle. Well, she is actually my husbands cat but as we have been together for over 10 years now she has adopted me too!!! (Well you know what cats are like). I'm not sure she knows what to make of the snow but she is extra furry this winter and loves going out and playing/watching the children playing.
I have used the colour combination at Tellen's Place of Blue and Silver. The background paper was from Funky Fairys (who are no longer - sadly).

This is a close up of the edge of the flower and the edge of the label to show the distressing and inked up sides of the label. the photos have been mounted on the Nestabilities dies S4-161 Labels 1 and I used these to make the frame underneath from silver miri card - I am learning slowly!!!

The flowers were made using the smallest Nestabilities dies S4-115 Scalloped circles set-1 then added a couple of punched flowers with a gem on top. the blue scallops and flowers have been sanded - they are from Core'dinations card stock.

I just typed the title using one of my favourite freebie fonts - Santas Big Secret. Finally, here is a wonky picture just cause I felt like it and the kids watched Willy Wonkas Chocolate factory last night - the one with my favourite actor in it - Johnny Depp.

I shall also enter this layout in the following challenges:-

ABC Challenge - L is for layering,

Creative Card Crew - Distressing,

Frosted Design - Any type of ink (I used some around the edges of the labels),

Lots to Do Challenge - Winter Wonderland,

One Stop Craft Challenge - Night at the Movies ("That Darn Cat"),

Polka Doodles - Song Title (I have used "Cats" - its a musical?!)and,

Penny's Challenge - Use chalks

Hope you like it and don't forget to let me know.

Hi Ali,

Hope you are well and warm.

This scrapbook page is fab. I have a notion to get out all my old photos and scrapbook them but it is a huge job and I am working up to it. I have bought some albums and stuff in sales, so I am good to go when I get the time.
