Cat Tails

I am working on a scrapbook for my friend Beth.  Her cat Flower passed away recently.  I asked her to write down some stories about Flower and then I created some cats to represent Flower.  I have to say I am having so much fun making this album for Beth and her family!

I used Storybook for the title.  I used Christmas for the window.  I cut the shadow out of a wall paperish kind of paper.  I cut the window out twice.  I pop dotted the second window on top of the first for a little dimension.

Some of you may have seen this sneak peek on facebook.  I wanted Beth to see what I was working on.  Flower loved to sit on Grandma's slippers and sleep on Beth's feet.  I took the cat from A Child's Year and welded the shadow image to a pair of slippers, then flipped the cat and welded one to a pair of shoes.

I used the laptop, books and notebook paper from Locker Talk, the cat from Paisley on top of the books. 
I welded two trees together from the Heritage cartridge and cut it out in two different greens to create the bush. I used the cat looking up at the bird from A child's Year.  I cut the cat out of white and green and just cut the green cat and shovel off the grass.  I glued the cat down first, then the bush.  I trimmed the extra bush parts off the edges of the paper.  I added a little brown ink to the grass and bushes.

Here they are again.  Since Beth did not have pictures to go with these particular stories, I created my own!

Watch for more pages to come!!
