Two 'purrfect' layouts today ... check out the cute cats :-) ...

Céline made this layout about their cat Chica, who was so curious about the new toothbrushes that Céline had bought. It almost looked like she was brushing her teeth herself.

Tracey made this layout, this is what she wrote about it:

This layout is from Christmas 2000 when my siblings and I got together to give my mom a Maine Coon kitten, Coco for Christmas. As you can see she was delighted with her new cat.

Thanks for participating, girls!

Yipeee ... the first layout has arrived!

Yipeee ... Francine sent me a layout shortly after my previous message! This is the message she wrote:

Hi Ingeborg,

Well, we can't have you feeling forgotten, so here is my layout for this month. I am going to make it into a two page layout, and was going to wait till I'd made the second page, but then read your post, so here it is!

I absolutely love how this layout turned out! I love the photo, the papers I used, and of course the beautiful sketch! I actually made the purple/green paper behind the photo myself! I made a kaleidoscope from another photo I took at the same time, then added some (digital) brushes to it and printed it out. I made a template for the shape and cut it out. The square tile embellishments were made from the same kaleidoscope as the paper. I also used some adhesive designs which I added flocking to for the three 'leaves' under the flowers at the top and bottom.

In case you're wondering about the title, this photo is of a field full of a plant called Paterson's Curse (in South Australia though it is called Salvation Jane). It is called this because it is toxic to livestock. After the Canberra bushfires in 2003, many horses were put down from eating this plant. So, although it is a 'curse' at the same time it is a most beautiful sight! I pass this field every day on my way to and from work, and have seen people stopped there on more than one occasion with their cameras out, just like I did!

Anyway, I hope you like it!


So ... now there is waiting for the next layout to come! Thanks Francine!

No entries yet ?!

Last month I received a record number of layouts and this month I haven't received any layouts yet? Are you girls all too busy to create? Come on, ladies ... who is the first one to send me a layout based on my sketch? I cannot wait to see my inbox flooded with gorgeous work!
