In honor of Bleubeard, one half of the duo behind the T is for Tuesday link party, my post for today is all about cats!
Bleubeard, what do you think of this idea? Do you think you could learn to make Elizabeth's coffee for her?
Actress Gates McFadden posted this series of six ultra-short videos (each less than a minute long) to her YouTube channel. I think the T-Day crowd will enjoy it.
I agree with Gates and Rudy here. The smell of coffee is excellent.
Gates has performed in many TV shows and movies over the years, but you may remember her best as Doctor Beverly Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation. I don't know why these T Tuesday posts seem to be bringing out my inner geek lately...
This seems like a very complicated way to make coffee. Perhaps she should have taught Rudy to make tea, instead.
Hope you liked that video series. Now, moving on to the scrapbooking part of this post...
Though I no longer have pet cats of my own, I am a big cat lover. Over the years I have owned three cats (all female and known collectively as "the girls"), and I've gradually been making a tribute album about them. Just recently, I completed the last page in the album. I'd love to share it with you. Here it is.
|Supplies: pink/peach dotted paper from Carta Bella; title paper from Paper House; stickers & all other paper from October Afternoon; upcycled greeting card clippings and jewelry charm; gifted clock face & resin swirl; corner punch from Creative Memories; tulle from Wyla; paint from Ranger; doily handmade by Irina Rakovets. Спасибо, Ирина!|
There is a kind of pressure that comes with making the last page in an album. I find myself wondering, what kind of mood do I want the reader to feel when she finishes looking at the album? What kind of impressions do I want to impart? It's an important decision. I considered many different "looks" for the last page of my kitty tribute album, and the look I finally chose is a "lovey-dovey" look, almost like a Valentine (out of season) to my kitties.
As usual, I upcycled some items on this page. The glittery floral image is from a birthday card that I got this year. It was too pretty to throw away. The 3D paper medallion with three dancing figures (representing my three departed cats) is also from an old greeting card.
I also upcycled a kitty charm from an old charm bracelet. The charm embellishes the simple journaling on the page, which reads: "All three girls are always in our hearts."
With the Valentine-like look of this page, I could not resist adding touches of pink--pink glitter, pink paint, pink tulle, etc.
Thanks for stopping by, dear readers, to view this very special scrapbook page. For those of you celebrating T Tuesday, I wish you a happy T-Day!
