Christmas Scrapbook Page

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it, two posts in a week. I am rocking. This is one of the many projects that I completed while I was on my self imposed hiatus.

For the month of December over at Sparkle N Sprinkle our project themes were scrapbook layouts. Well I have no human kids so I find it very hard to do scrapbook layouts.  As I wracked my brain, I found some beautiful scrapbook paper and that helped me over the first hurdle.And of course I had to call on my 4 legged kids for inspiration. You probably will recall the pic's I've used below were in an earlier post, but I thought you'd like to see the layout as well.

These guys were so patient with me as I donned the cute hat and beard and the antlers. They just sat there as I posed them and I shot many many pic's. It was truly amazing, if I say so myself, that they didn't bolt and run and hide. But they didn't.

OK back to this layout..... This page was so cool and I loved all the pre-printed elements on the page so I just got my glue pen out and traced and added glitter.I just had to add the stamped sentiment and the cute Christmas Kitty to tie everything together.  Lastly I added some journaling and that finished the page.

This turned out so darned cute!!  I will be back in a couple of days with the other scrapbook page layout that I turned in.

Hey you! There is nothing like stretching your creative wings. Your four legged children are the perfect subject matter. I will try to call you today...I got some great news..wink wink.

This is so cute! Love the idea of tracing elements already on the page and adding glitter to them. I have a dedicated scrapbook album for my fur babies, although none of my cats would have allowed me to dress them up :-).

A Beard? I can't believe you got your cat to wear a beard! I'd be at the Doc for a tetanus shot if I even tried to put a hat, let alone a beard on my cat!!! Truthfully, did you have to use tear-ific tape to keep it on?
Very sparkly scrapbook page Barbara. That's an adorable Christmas Kitty stamp.
A Beard??????

Barbara said...

Debi, My cats are so laid back, most of the time, and they usually let me do whatever. The beard has no tape on it. It is held in place with velcro on the sides of the hat by the ears, with velcro. That's the way it came. The antlers have an elastic chin strap. They both just sat there as I shot many pictures. And believe me I was laughing so hard it was hard to get some of the shots. Glad you enjoyed.

Is that Buddy in your signature? LOL I'm reporting you for cruel and unusual punishment to those poor, abused kitties. Your kitties are pretty remarkable, even how they say hello via Skype LOL Very cute page, Barbara.
