Our Jinx...

Over on the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge they are running a scrap your pet challenge for the month of August. Since I haven't done a "pet page" in a long while I decided to get it a try. I chose to do a layout of one of our rescue kitties, Jinx. She came to join our family all the way from northern Illinois when four years ago I got a call from my Aunt asking if she could give Makara a kitten for her birthday. My Aunt had a friend that needed to find this kitten a home, otherwise her husband said he'd "get rid" of it. I'm so glad we were able to save her, she's one of the best cats (maybe a little bias there) and we love her. Anyway, this is the layout I did for the challenge:

and a close up...

A few distressed layers, a little misting, and some stamping. Also hand stitching and a little punch work. I had a lot of fun making it. Thanks so much for looking and your comments.
