I've been itching to use this photo of our beautiful Kiki cat since I took it. Isn't she gorgeous? Another scraplift from Mind the Scrap, but such a good idea, to use those offcuts, the branding strips and little scraps. I'll be doing it again!
I started off placing it all out, then stuck the strips down quite randomly really. I just tried to make sure there were no 2 the same next to each other, and to balance the dark and light strips.
Once I'd chosen the sparkly Hello as the title, I used gold to frame the photo to pull it together.
Couple of secrets....
1. I didn't have 2 K's left in the alphabet, so I cut the rounded bit off a capital R to make the lower case K. Worked out OK, didn't it?
2. The strips behind the photo are all really short bits, I just cut them in half and tucked them behind the photo so that they looked longer.
I think this may be my favourite page so far!
