miss you everyday

G'day scrappy friends and happy Tuesday to you!  It may be too early to ask this, but how is your week going so far? 

Today I have sketch #90 from Sketchabilities.  Its a cool one!  So many possibilities!

and my take on it...

This is our cat, Giddy.  He has been a part of our family for 16 years and he recently passed away.  Its been a difficult thing for us to deal with and I miss him very much!

For this layout I used Lucille by Basic Grey.  Instead of using background banners, I used different sized paper strips.  I love how it turned out and this would be a great way to use up scraps.

For part of my title I stamped the word "miss" onto a shipping tag and added jute for the string.  This tag came from a kit and was pre-stamped with the hearts.  There is so so much  you can do with ordinary shipping tags.  Its so much fun to experiment with them.

The wooden branches came from a kit as well.  I am totally in love with all the wooden accents right now!  For the finishing touches I added cordinating flowers in a small cluster and some paper birds!

Thats it!  A pretty simple layout and so cute!  I especially love it on a white background.  That really makes all the colors pop!

Check out Sketchabilities and the other design team inspiration!  Join in too, if you can!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!
