Sleepy Baby Tobes

Another layout for an awesome kit! My Funky Valentine Jan kit is a must have...seriously!

I really love this MME paper alot and didn't want to cut it into pieces so I chose to "enhance" the paper & at the same time I wanted to keep it simple. So I worked on the left side of the paper where it was covered with designs. To subtle the scripts I used gesso.

I love these pictures of my fur-baby, Tobes. Always love seeing him curled up on the pink chair in the craft room. He reminded me of human baby curling in the mom's womb.

Also adored those Maya Road wings in the kit and decided to add it onto Tobes's back. His fur is white so he looks so angelic here! LOL! Another great way to do your title is by doodling it! I find it very arty as well :)

The American Crafts metal key is a perfect match for this vintage looking paper. Don't you think so?

A fact 'bout cats:
  • Adult cats with no health problems are in deep sleep 15 percent of their lives. They are in light sleep 50 percent of the time.
  • Cats sleep 16 to 18 hours per day. When cats are asleep, they are still alert to incoming stimuli. If you poke the tail of a sleeping cat, it will respond accordingly. Interesting eh?

  • Btw, I am so smitten with what Kirsty aka The Chief Pixie commented on my handwriting. *On cloud 9* LOL! Seriously... a fan of my handwriting. Wow! That's very rare to receive such comment :)

    As usual thanks for peeking!!
    Xoxo Jessy

    OMG, this layout is so adorable Jessy!! Your fur baby is too cute!! I have two myself. I'm glad you posted the fact about cats... they really do sleep a lot!!! Cat's are very similar to humans with their personalities too. They are very individual, and seem to want run of the house. At least mine do!

    the layout is great! I was so into talking about cats, I almost forgot to tell you what I thought of it!
