3 + 1 Gypsy Challenge (My Pets)

This week's Gypsy challenge is 3 + 1 = SUCCESS. You use at least 3 shapes and at least 1 weld in a project. I am working on my album from my childhood and I thought this would work well for my pets.

I submitted Fraidy LO as my first project. I used Opposites Attract and the cat from Designers Calendar for the title which is my welded piece. The cat is the letter "I". I used A Child's Year for the other cat images. I included the cat and bird because the birds tormented poor Fraidy. I added all of the stories I could remember about him.

I also submitted this page about Mittens. I had fun with this LO. I found paper that matches the horrid wallpaper in our main bathroom and had to include it!! I created my own Mittens by cutting out the cats in black and white and trimming the black parts away to show the mittens and white face. I added crystals for the eyes.

I finished my pet theme with the rest of my childhood pets. This cat Sammy was my favorite. We had him the shortest time, but he was the snuggliest. I wanted the photos to show the story here. I included the title from OA and some images from ACY. I used the crystal on the title for the i ~ I lost the original dot. I do this a lot with lower case i's so I have learned to get creative!

Misty was the cat we got shortly after Sammy died. She was a farm cat and really didn't like being indoors. I had the most photos of Misty, so I kept the pages simple.

Hugo was our one and only dog. We had him before we added any of the cats ~ that is me he is laying on in the photo. I welded the dogs from Animal Kingdoom to the title. I also cut out a dog head from AK. I wanted to separate the photos because the copy of the photo at the lake had rounded corners, so I needed to fill up the page. I added some ribbon collars as well as a ribbon border. I gave the smaller dogs stickle eyes and the larger dog gems.
