Now for Something Really Different!

I don't do a lot of scrapbooking. It doesn't mean I don't know how to scrapbook. I don't know why I don't do it more. I really enjoy it. Maybe it's because I did my son's 18 years of his life in 6 months Scrapbook and I am still in shock! Now WAY back then it wasn't a popular thing to do and I had better things to do with my time. I was very faithful about keeping up with his baby book *patting my back* And I kept up on his shot! LOL I did keep a photo album for him which made it easy to do the scrapbook pages. I think it's that time you have to spend putting the photos in chronological order that slows us all up. Well, that and hunting the photos down! A lot of my favorite photos of our son are on slides. Yes, slides. I took them to the drug store to have them developed into prints and the kid (looked all of 12 years old!!! LOL) said to me "what's a slide?" Can you believe that? Am I that old? I'll field that question before any of you do!!! I must be old if I think the kid at the drug store looked like he was 12!

Ok, enough rambling. I had gotten out some photos of the cats I've had in my life. The center of the page reads "Every life should have nine cats!" I saw that saying a long time ago and just loved it. I actually stopped to see if I even had the unwritten quota of 9 cats in. I did and then some. I had several cats that I do not have photos of. It wasn't the "thing" to do as a child to waste film on a picture of a cat. They probably would have been black and white anyway! Again the cat stamp in the middle is "Cool Cat" and is retiring. The words in the background card stock was done using the Stampin' Up! fonts disk and printed out. I used the word window punch for the names and the two circle punches for the photos. It was SO much fun to make this because it brought back SO many good memories of my sweet kitties. I still have Boo, K.C. and Millie.

Pets are a part of your family too and I firmly believe they should be included in the albums.

Thank you for stopping by!
