I’ll be just one of thousands of people that will walk up to a marathon and a half over a weekend, raising awareness of the cause and educating even more people.

My Daughter Loves Cats

My dd, who is 5, is an animal fanatic.  Anytime we go to a store, she has to buy a new stuffed animal.  I bet she has over 200 right now…UGH!!!!!!  I hate it but she is in love with them and I can’t seem to tell her no :-)  Yes, my dh and I are softies.

She also owns a cat, a dog and 4 fish and she is begging for another fish, a bird and a hamster.  So far, we have been good about keeping her away from those thoughts. 

One day, she was at home playing with the cat and I took some really cute pictures of her.  She was having the best time with our cat, Tinkerbell (who is a boy but don’t tell him).  When I was ready to do a layout using the pictures, I found out that Paula Phillips had created the perfect kit for me to use.  I used her kit, Fancy Feline.  She hand drew a lot of the elements in this kit.  It is just beautiful. 


Here is the layout I created using this kit and of my daughter playing with Tinkerbell.  It is such a cute picture…I just couldn’t help it.

The Cat's Meow

Then, I thought…I have the cutest pictures of my daughter at her dance performance and wondered if I could use this kit, designed for animals, with those pictures of my Dancing Queen.  So, here is what I came up with.

Dancing Queen

I was amazed at how versatile this kit is.  I had so much fun trying to use it with just regular photos. 

I would suggest you head over to Paula’s store @ Get Digi With It and pick up this wonderful kit, Fancy Feline…before the mouse runs away with it.  I know, it isn’t likely, but it could happen :-)  If you create a layout with this amazing kit, please post it to Paula’s gallery @ Get Digi With It so we can see what you can do with this kit also.

Paula Phillips has done it again

I cannot believe it, but Paula Phillips has created another awesome kit.  The new kit is called Whimsical Romance.  I was so excited after I downloaded this kit and started working with it.  It has some awesome papers and some really amazing elements in it.  I love this kit.  Here is a preview of the kit and a couple of layouts I created with the kit.  I also combined Paula’s Creamy Cocoa Alphabet with the BFF layout.  I think it really sets off this kit beautifully.  So, head on over to Get Digi With It and check out Paula’s store and this awesome kit and alpha set.  And while you are there, go ahead and pick up a couple more of Paula’s kits.  I promise you, you will love them all!!!!
