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!
