It's Friday

It's Friday and you know what that means. Time's up to post Pat's challenge. I sure hope it isn't just Robyn and I this week. We need someone that can give Robyn some competition *wink* I love to tease you Robyn, you take it so well. :)


This week was a blah week and it showed in my creativity. Even though the subject of my LO is the most special little gal, I couldn't seem to express that very well this go around. I did get my origami folded and adhered on there, so it qualifies for Pat's challenge. I folded two little kittens and tried to color them in with gray to look like Flossie.

I like the little gray mouse, with the pink bling on the tip of it's nose. I used the Cricut Doodlecharm cartridge to cut it out. I used some paper that didn't have a name on it, so I cannot give anyone credit for that. The ribbon is by Elements. The silk flower came from a silk stem of hydrangeas that I just separated and then put a little blue felt center, with another bling topping that off. I've got 300 of them blings, I need to use them *wink* Also by buying the silk flowers on the stems, and taking them apart, I found out it is more economical for me.

I found a little "fate" sticker and I paired that with a paw sticker, I thought it was appropriate, considering how FLOSSIE MAE came to be part of my life. On the other side, I put "I'm home". Above the top left picture is a little rub on that says "hello" and a little flower. On the right hand side above Allan and her is a rub on that says "you and me". But with the poor quality of my photography you can't see them. The LO depicts how much she has grown in almost 5 months. Let me tell you this kitten, does her own thing. To have been homeless, she sure has a lot of grit. She knows I'm a softie at heart, so if she ignores me, when I want to cuddle her, she knows that she can sucker me in to scratching her belly at her convenience not mine. Have a good weekend and slip over to Heather's place and check out her challenge. Now I have figured out why Flossie is being so distant to me, she doesn't like my bad coloring on the origami.

Your layout came out great, Sheila. What a great idea making origami cats! Flossie Mae is indeed an adorable and very lucky cat. Caution-- Watch out with those bell rubs--one of my cats is so spoiled now he expects belly rubs on demand and if I happen to be asleep when he wants one, no problem, he wakes me up.
