Different things



My great-niece had to give her cats new homes due to not being allowed to have them where she lived so she gave this one to my Mom (her great-grandmother). She was sad the day she brought her over so my mom suggested we take a picture of her and send it to her. I thought it was a great idea! So I altered this picture frame and put her picture in it. I have never done one of these before so I looked up some ideas and this is what I came up with. I think it came out pretty good, I really hope she likes it! I don't know what colors she likes but this pink paper had words like "memories", "nostalgic", cherish etc. on it so I went with it.

I had two stickers of the cat so I mounted them each on a piece of cardstock, cut them out and then put a pop-dot between them to make it look cool. Then I dyed one of those white flowers with the pink re-inker, which worked surprisingly well! I used too much though, I thought it was dry when I put the white flower in the middle and it bled through. The other picture is an altered notebook, just simple and straightforward. I make these a lot, quick and easy!

She loved it! i was there when she opened it with her two friends and she ripped the box open and ran out of the house to show her mom. She also took it with her on her sleep over.
