Sketchabilities Sketch #63

One of my many new year promises that I made was to try creating as many 12" X 12" scrapbook layouts as possible this year. Some of my close friends, who are scrapper themselves know that big layout freaks me out. Mini books, any day. Well, inspirations for creating layouts don't come naturally to me. I've been visiting many challenge blogs or following interesting sketches. This is the latest sketch (Sketch #63), featured on Sketchabilities' blog. And I felt like I need to scrap Arthur, my youngest cat (he's 3) using the sketch. 

One night Arthur was watching me working at my laptop and he started to get busy with the mouse. His front legs crossed and whiskers twitching. I took a photo of him doing mischief, so that one day I could scrap this moment. I used that photo in this layout but I had to cut out the part with the mouse, and replaced it with a bird in a cage. I was trying to be as close as possible to the actual sketch from the blog. I used orange-green-white color combo to match Arthur's fur.



... it says " I know when Arthur gives 'THAT' look,
he is up to NO GOOD".


I made the bird cage sticker by stamping on pattern paper bits.
The butterfly from scrap paper and hand-sewn them on the layout.
Then added a little note made of paper scrap to remind me how loved, happy, and beautiful Arthur is. 

Thank you Sketchabilities for such a great inspiration.
