If you've been a part of my life since I started scrapbooking, then you know two things are true:
- I overspend on stuff because I do not currently have my existing inventory in any sort of order.
- Despite the years of scrapbooking, I have YET to make my own scrapbook.
What I love about these weekly challenges is that they are forcing me to create for fun (and possible prizes). This means I get to play with some of my supply (and organize and I search through it), and I get to slowly build up pages and cards that are meant for no one in particular. So I may just come out with the beginning of an album for ME!
Anyway, the current and only man in my life is my kitty, Charlie. Charlie has been a part of my family (used to be mine and Sogol's family before she divorced me to get married) since November 2005. I rescued him from my dad's coworker's house/barn. The entire family was allergic to cats and their barn cat had had a litter. When we visited them, we walked away with three beautiful kittens - two of which have remained in each other's lives since day one.
Charlie and Sol....the most playful and loving brothers ever. I just love to watch these guys together. This was a moment in time captured early in their lives, and it's fun to realize that you can still find these two sitting just like this!
I used some left over scraps from a bin of paper I have under my desk to make a contrasting background.
The cartridges I used to complete this page were Heritage (my newest addition) and Ashlyn's Alphabet.

|Trying to make sure I date pages when I can...I'm terrible at this!|
|Also made a conscious decision to journal...I don't want to take for granted that I might not always remember who these two fellas are!|
