Remembering my precious putty tat

 A few weeks ago, my husband and I lost our kitty to cancer. We were both so devastated as he was our only pet and he had been with us for the last 12 years. I wanted to commemorate him on a scrapbook page because, shame on me, I had pages of all our previous pets but none of Shima. And he was the one closest to our hearts.

This page was made with a sketch over at Scrap A Little, but instead of paper strips I used Japanese Washi Tape. This stuff is fabulous - it comes in a zillion colors and is easily repositional if you change your mind about the placement or the color scheme. The flowers on this page were made with toilet paper rolls.

If you've got a washi paper project to show, check the link at the right as Trendy Crafters is having a little contest with a prize giveaway. It's not important for me to win, but I do love to share when I discover a great product - so get yourself some washi tape and create away. Trendy Crafters is sure to give you lots of great inspiration once their contest gets rolling.

Splash Time

I just love this month's featured Grid Paper color! I've got so many ideas of pages to use this fabulous color on. This month, I did not cut up my photos, just the patterned paper. I used the 1" sqaure punch, plus a 1" circle punch on the same paper. The square and the circle are combined to give my page some movement. Check out my how-to on the Design Each Moment site.
