Cat Scrap Fever...


Since I (reluctantly) moved here, little over a year ago, I have been thoroughly shown that sometimes good things come to you when you least expect it - and sometimes a "bad" thing happens for a very good reason. So many great things have happened to me, this year. I got the Inzpira-gig. I got the best colleagues and bosses a girl can ask for. I met new friends. I found hot yoga and was hooked. I purged tons of things that were just weighing me down. I tried new things.
I started all over, in many ways.

...and if I am lucky, there might be more new starts just around the corner.

More on that later, hopefully.

This Friday, I was invited for a crafty girl's night at my friend's place - and it was such a wonderfun (yes, wonderfun. I made that up, because I needed it to exist. ;)) evening/night! There was everything you could wish for: great personalities, lots of interesting histories, laughs, crafts (and a ton of REALLY yummy food... I really must get that recipe for artichoke dip, because it was diviiiine!) and I got to know some new people, toasted to free time, and managed to whip up 4½ layouts.
(I kind of shocked myself.)

Here's one of them - featuring another set of cute Rhodesian cats...:

Papers are from Nook kits - Carta Bella, mainly, and the banners on the side are made from Echo Paper papers (uh, that sounded weird, didn't it? ;))
Hope-button made by Sasha Farina and sold in her Etsy-store
Flowers & leaves: Petaloo
Bling: You Do
Doily & glassine bag bought on etsy
Tags and banners: home made using my lovely brand new pet: the Silhouette Cameo ♥

Every little thing about this is so fab. I especially love the twine pulled through the tags and carefully placed around the page.

Beautiful page. I really love the twine on your layout. I am going to have to use that idea. :) I also like that you sewed your title to the page.
