Our oldest son has moved back home for a short time and with him came his cat Betty. We also had a cat named Mr. Kitty so it has been quite the job, full time I might add, to get these 2 beautiful creatures used to each other. So for this reason I thought it was fitting to start my first Design Team Post with the image of the adorable cat!
I was also trying to decide which medium I wanted to use and thought that since I'm new on the DT I should also try something new. I had purchased some chalks some time ago and hadn't used them yet at all. I went through 3 of the images before I settled on one that I thought did the kitty justice.
With my failing memory I thought it would be a good idea to make up a notepad for myself where I could keep track of the different projects that I'm working on and when they are due. I used a simple composition notebook and covered it with cardstock. I also made a little pocket on the inside front cover in case I wanted to slip something in so I wouldn't have to go hunting for it. I then used DCWV's The Tradewinds matstack to pretty up the front. I made up some flowers using some of my hand punches with different shapes. The leaves were also hand punched out of cardstock and The Tradewinds matstack again. I used my Martha Stewart punch to get the letters for the front cover.
This project came together very quickly and was so much fun to play around with the image. I am looking forward to making many more adorable projects using the images over at Scrap N' Dipity.
