Fat Cat

Good Morning everyone, it is a rainy one here today, but I am on holidays so it doesn't really matter. Any day away from work is a good day!!!

I have a layout to share with you today...


This is our cat Gizmo, his favourite thing is to lay on the back of this couch. He can see out the window from here, but most of the time he just sleeps. He is a very big boy and he has actually dented the couch as this is his spot!!! You can see our other cat Isabel in the background. They are never too far apart from each other.

I was inspired by the latest Freaky Fast Friday challenge from The ScrapRoom.


And the May Golden Globe Stash challenge from Scrap Our Stash.

Dentist Visit - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Good Morning everyone, we are right in the middle of the May 24 Long Weekend here in Canada. The weather has not been the greatest, but it is a long weekend, so enjoying it with family and friends is what is important.

Today is reveal time at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges. We are continuing with the theme of "Variety of Shapes" and today's challenge is Hexagons.

Here is my layout....


My "Daughter In Law" took these photos of the boys at one of their dentist visits. We must document everything, even the visit to the dentist!!!

This hexagon Silhouette cut file is the very first cut file that I tried when I received my Silhouette machine. It continues to be one of my favourites!!!

Here are some closeups....



I picked up these Jolee's embellishments on clearance a while back knowing that I had these photos to scrap. They are just perfect and I used every single one of them on this layout.


These cut files are a great background to a layout. Just add some pops of colour to fill in the hexagons.

LOVELY - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Moms out there. I hope you have a chance to spend time with your families today in recognition of your Mom and the wonderful inspiration that she has had on your life.

Today I am going to share the latest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team reveal with you. We are continuing with the theme for May of "Variety of Shapes" and today's challenge is Triangles!

Here is my layout....


I took these photos of my daughter's wedding dress the day she picked it up from the Bridal Saloon after the final alterations had been completed. We moved the furniture out of the way so that I could take these photos. The lighting wasn't perfect, but I loved how they turned out up against the stain glass window.

Here are a couple of closeups...


I created a cluster with a rose cut file and added a few flowers to finish it off.


I layered up different sizes of triangles on my background and added a couple of triangle clips to the cluster.
