SUOC52 Picture It!

Good Morning!  Today's challenge on Stampin' Up Only Challenges is to create a project featuring a photo.  I'm still working diligently on my My Digital Studio photo book, so what better project to feature a photo than another scrapbook page?

Here I am showing you my assistants, or catsistants.  We'll call what they are doing "helping".  The top is Gizmo, just hamming it up and looking pretty.  Xena is keeping all the cards in the shoebox safe and warm.  And Liesl, at the bottom, is helping or hindering my ability to play along with card challenges... I'm not sure.  As one friend said, she is thinking very hard about an inspiration challenge.

I actually created this page while playing along with the digital scrapbook challenge DGC024 Stark Contrast on Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge is to create a page with contrast or an oxymoron... mine of course is the tongue-in-cheek helpers who don't really help.  But they sure are fuzzy and cuddly!

This page uses the hostess MDS CD called Keep in Touch (in the big catalog).  Love this retro feel and the colors!!

MDS Elements: Stamps: Bliss, Keep in Touch; Papers: Keep in Touch; Color Palette: More Mustard, Sage Shadow, Early Espresso; Embellishments: Round button (recolored Sage), White baker's twine, Stitching, Keep in Touch kit; Font: Pea Diana.

My Project 52 totals: Week 34, pages 37.

Thanks for stopping by!

As someone who has a catsistant of her own, I was totally smitten with your crafting helpers! Now if I could just get her not to leave hairballs on my craft table, I would really be a happy camper :)

Hahahaha, catsistants - love it! My catsistant isn't around to "help" anymore. *sniff* Yours are adorable.
