I made this layout a few years back, but the pictures are more than 25 years old. The three cats - Flash, Dusty, and Tigger - were our first pets. I love the memories contained in these photos, but regret I didn't do more journaling about them. Maybe I could add some writing in the upper RH corner? Hmmm...
Currently we have two cats, Lucky (the fluffy princess) and Chessie (my sleek black cat). Here's a page I made recording Lucky's obsession with drinking from the bathtub faucet. I guess it's better than using the kitchen sink faucet, sigh.I used the same design template for the next two layouts, once for Lucky and again for Chessie. Just like kids, I had to do a page for both of them! If you took Cathy Zielske's class, Design Your Life, then I bet you recognize this. It really is true that the same design with new pictures and colors can yield very different results. I need to remember this and quit trying to re-invent the wheel with every page I make!
Finally, lest you think we only like cats, here is a dog layout. This is not our dog; he belongs to the next door neighbors! This is our usual view of him through the fence as he waits to be petted or fed a treat. I just love this picture Phil took so I found a way to use it.
Here is the same page in my album. Since the next layout is a 2-page spread, here's what I do. I love to find a stray piece of patterned paper that coordinates and add it as a filler page. This gives the eye a rest and really contributes to the scrapbook feel of the album. Does anyone else do something like this?
