Today's layout share is of our feline, Belle. AKA Belle Girl. She has a million and one other nicknames but her hashtag is #bellegirl. When I come home after work, she is there to greet me, my Belle Girl, and we talk about our mornings. She snuggles and walks around the house slung across my shoulder as we prepare lunch and put the shopping away. She talks back to me.
In the mornings, at the most inopportune moments, she wants to play with the laser pointer. And she asks every morning; pacing at the foot of the fridge/freezer doors, meowing and pleading for somebody to take a break from their harried morning frenzy and play with her. When that fails, as inevitably it does, she just plops down in front of the doors.
I used bits and pieces left over from my January Cocoa Daisy kit in addition to a Just Nick cut file for this layout. I remembered this old "hole pokey thingy" that I had that people used to transfer their sewing patterns to fabric with that I obsessed about using on this layout. It creates a fun, playful movement to the page, akin to the light that Belle loves to play with. And the fun floral stamps from Cocoa Daisy that I hand colored to blend them to the page a little bit more.
Before my Cocoa Daisy kit arrived with these My Minds Eye goodies I had added them to my stash. I was very fortunate to grow that collection when my January kit arrived. Bits and pieces made for the perfect embellies to this layout. Not much was necessary with the floral flourishes as the main "look see" up top.
The "happy" rub on from My Minds Eye was perfect floating in the breeze and floral flourishes. Not wanting it to look "bumpy" by rubbing directly on the layers, I opted to rub it onto vellum and then fussy cut. It looks perfect nestled upon the waves of the Just Nick digital cut file.
Do you have a light seeker too? This cat will play with and chase light all day given the opportunity. She's about 5 so hopefully that playfulness lasts as she ages.
