Recently my cat of 18 years passed away. Although she was old it still hurt my heart greatly and when looking back at old photos I realised that I had not taken enough photos of her through the years. We often  take everyday moments for granted and losing her reminded me that photographing and documenting everyday moments is just as important as life highlights. I have used the beautiful Daydream collection and with her being a ginger cat the colours in this collection were perfect.

I found my title in the Silhouette Design Store. I used the off set function (if you have a Silhouette Cameo) to create depth to it and creating light/shade by using these two papers, All A Flutter and Happy Place. I finished off adding some of the tiny flowers from the ephemera die cut pack.

I tore three paper strips from the All A Flutter  Daisy Days and Garden Variety papers. I love the texture torn paper strips gives your layout. As I had chosen a busy paper I chose not to mat my photo (5×6 inches) but adding with foam tape to give it height.

Despite using the floral papers I went ahead and added two floral bunches on each side of my photo, not only does this frame my photo it allows you to layer with foam tape large florals so they stand out. Adding green foliage also adds impact and draws your eye.

I created some journalling by using words from the Accessory Sticker Sheet and the beautiful rainbow flair, I added some gold thread behind the flair to add a little sparkle!

I typed her name and dates slightly under the torn paper strips. (if your wondering why she had a boys name is because we assumed that as ginger cats are mostly boys, the vet later let us know ‘he’ was a ‘she’, a bit late to change the name lol!!) I added some butterflies from the die cut ephemera pack.

I finished my layout off adding one of the beautiful Puffy Hearts with a little more gold thread added.

Thank you for stopping by today!
