LOAD #30 - Cat Tales

I didn't include any journaling on this layout since I will include it on the facing photo storage page, so here's Cat Tales in a nutshell. It's a wildlife rescue foundation outside Spokane, WA that focuses on saving big cats (i.e. lions, tigers, leopards, etc.) who are either being abused or whose owners realized they can't handle a wild animal in their living room! We got a guided tour and learned the stories behind many of the rescues. It was fascinating, and I highly recommend visiting if you're ever in the area. We only photographed the center picture on the layout; the other two (really great) shots are postcards we purchased on site. As far as the layout goes, simple was the order of the day. I tried various embellishments, but nothing seemed to fit, so I left it as is. The title block was inspired by my upline Jenni; she created the template by tracing around one of the Emporium My Stickease, and she generously made me a template, too. Great way to make the most of your purchases! Only one more day of challenge left. How are we doing, ladies?

Back to 4th of July. And no problem using red, white and blue. I really love it. Our family pics were in it last July.

Hey Cheryl did you get my email? I sent one to the email on your blog.

Yeah!!! Finally back to Emilie's book! I got my pictures printed...although only 63 out of the 160 printed...which limited which layouts I could do :( I'm not sure why this happened, so now I'm going to have to save the pics to a CD and take them in the old fashioned way!

And another sad story...

I decided to finally try embossing today! A friend gave me a heat tool, so I decided to do a quick run to Michael's and buy some white powder. I got my table all set up for what I could only assume was going to be a big mess, and right when I was about to shake on the embossing powder...I see that it is "kaleidoscope TRANSPARENT"!!! So much for that idea. SO, I decided to just use my white daisy ink, which obviously didn't turn out as 'bright' as I was hoping.

Well...with no further ado, here it is! An Easter/April calendar LO from when Emilie was about 7 weeks old.
