Animal Lover

I was able to make it down to my craft area and come up with this layout.  I'm still working on the companion layout.  I used this week's sketch from The Scrappiest. I'm not happy with how the title got lost in the paper but I'm afraid I'll ruin it if I try to move the stickers so they are staying put.
I loved these pictures of Christopher a few years back.  He loves all animals and had fun snuggling the kitten that we got for my brother-in-law.  It's a real simple layout but I'm sure that doesn't surprise any of you who frequent this blog regularly.  But hey, it is a layout done, complete with journaling and all. 

Patterned Paper:  My Minds Eye
Stamps:  CTMH Comments
Other:  CTMH alphabet stickers, Nesties, MS border punch

I hope everyone is having a great New Year's Day.  Even though I don't drink, I feel somewhat hungover due to the lateness of the hour in which I went to sleep last night.  We had a great night with good friends.  Thanks so much Shannon for hosting.  Unfortunately, my poor old body doesn't do 2 am very well. 

Remember to check back tomorrow for our special Unscripted blog hop where I'll be revealing some of my resolutions goals for 2010.

What a sweet layout, Alanna! While I can read the title, it does get kind of lost in the paper. Do you have any UnDu? That stuff will remove the sticky for a short time and allow you to take off the sticker and move it without damaging the layout. I'll warn you, it stinks, but it works!

If you don't, one of my tricks when I was doing paper layouts was to outline the letters with a pen. Choose a dark color and carefully work your way around the letters and it should help it stand out more.

I offer these ideas should you want to help the title stand out better. It looks fine as is, but just in case...*Ü*
