Ever have one of those pages that just did not want to cooperate? Well this was one of them... After spending HOURS creating the blocks & letters in Photoshop just so I could cut them out on my cricut I lost all interest in this page. "At the end of the day" it would have been a BILLION MILLION times easier and faster to just sketch the blocks on paper and cut them out with scissors. As it was I ended up cutting most of it by hand anyway including the crimped paper and vellum behind the letters so you could see them better.
Did I learn my lesson when it came time to make the rattle? Nooooo, I made that in Photoshop too and then hand cut parts. I am a hybrid (cricut & scissors) embellishment maker.
The paper rolling/curling was inspired by several layouts I researched in the gallery.
The journaling reads...As a poor couple, just starting out, we were always looking out for discarded items like used furniture. Cruising one day we came across some curbside cats. On an old couch we discovered several kittens from at least three litters. My boyfriend (at the time) knocked on the front door and asked what's up with all of these cats? The lady of the house replied, help yourself. They are there for the pickin'. Take a few home and try them out. So we picked out three kittens. He picked a gray cat and named him Fred. I picked out Tiger Cat and we threw in one more but I don't remember his name. Well…Fred proved to be the most boisterous of the bunch and like BFs in most relationships (they get their way) Fred got to stay. Tiger Cat and the unnamed third kitten were returned to the now infamous kitten couch which by then had several dozen residents. But life was not good to Fred and he met his fate with car a few months later. Naturally we were upset but
eventually we paid the kitten couch another visit. Low & behold Tiger Cat was still there! But by now Tiger Cat was a teen-age stud cat in his prime. MEOW! I scooped him up and he became MY cat. So this is why I have only one baby picture of Tiger Cat.
Thank you for stopping by...
PS I almost forgot...I used Deco scissors on the photomat cause IT AIN'T SCRAPBOOKING UNLESS YOU USE DECO SCISSORS!
I have revised this page. To see the revision...
