Hello all! Welcome to the next stop on the Holly Jolly blog hop! You should have arrived here from In Love with Paper. If you are just beginning the hop, Kristen is our host. Today's hop showcases items to jump start your holiday projects! I hope you have been enjoying it so far.
My project for you today is a Christmas layout about my cat. Last Christmas, we bought her a little carpet covered house. We wrapped it and put it under the tree. That cat knew right away it was hers! She laid on, pawed at it, tried to eat it.
The layout design is from the cover layout on the Scrapbook Trends December 2011 magazine. The cat is cut from Meow Lite at 3". It's hat is from Create a Critter 2 at 3". Also from Meow is the 4" tag. The title of Naughty or Nice is from CAC2 at 2.5".
Here is the journaling tucked in between the two pictures.
I just couldn't believe how in love she was with this present, even when it was wrapped. By Christmas morning, it was practically open from all of her loving it!
Please leave a comment for a chance at a Christmas themed mystery package to arrive in your mailbox! Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you, either email or Cricut MB name. I will draw a winner by the end of the week.
Your next stop is Scrappin Nanapuddin. Enjoy - thanks for visiting!

I love the story about the cat house and of course the layout is fantastic. I wish my kitty liked the "house" we had but perhaps because it was a hand-me-down it was already claimed my another cat :)ReplyDelete
