Book Buddies

I think it's so cute that our kitty Rosie must be where ever my daughter is.  When she comes home from school, Rosie runs down to her bedroom to do "homework" with her.  (This usually consists of kitty head butts and tummy scratches.)  She even likes to lie on the desk when my daughter is using her laptop.  It's too funny.

These pictures of the two of them are typical...My daughter curled up with her Nook and Rosie right there with her. (yes, she is extra fluffy....and looks like a blanket!)

I based my layout on a sketch from Kristine Davidson's new book Creating With Sketches Volume 2. (page 44).  If you haven't ordered yours yet, you should!  It's really an awesome book.  I pretty much followed the sketch.  I used Crate Paper's Fourteen collection.  This has been one of my favorites this year.  I started by "splopping" some Mister Huey's on my background page.  I love how opaque the colors are!
I cut some arrow shapes from my background paper and backed them with another coordinating paper.  I love this really adds dimension to a project.

The banner was created by fussy-cutting some banner shapes from one of the papers, and stitching a zig-zag stitch along the top.  The chipboard shapes are also from the Fourteen collection.  That's it for today...I'll be back with more projects soon including one for The Twinery's Banner Day Challenge.  Thanks for looking!
