Create Page for Another Freaking Scrappy

So, while we were in Vegas for a quick vacation, our kids were hanging with my parents. Sometimes the grand kids next door are there, but this year our break week did not correspond with theirs. Of course, the weather was also not all that fun, so my parents came up with some cool indoor projects.

Lexi made this awesome funky stained glass cat with my Mom. She designed it herself even. I'm going to show you her cat up against the window so you can see the colors she picked. She chose clear for parts of it, so it's hard to see what is the glass and what part is the stand that she put it on. Her stand needs a light still as this is a night light.

I used Anne's latest sketch over at Another Freaking Scrappy. You have half the month to get this one done and it's super easy so why not have a go at it! 

I think the circle elements are cool. I opted to use my new K & Co. flowers I found on a shopping trip to represent them. Here is a side view so you can see how POOFY they are. 

I happened to have Lexi's sketch so it was fun to use that as part of the background. As it was a sketch, she had some scribbles I covered up strategically with flowers and paper! 

Also linking up to Yvonne's Do More for Less blog as Lizzy Hill has a challenge up over there for fussy cutting photos and some hand journaling. There is quite a lot of fussy cutting around photos and in fact, cut Lexi's cat sketch so the ears would come in front of the photos. Lots of hand journaling around the stained glass cat. 

So there you go, two fun projects on a Monday to get you inspired! Hopefully you had a nice relaxing weekend and you are ready to kick Monday in the butt!
