Robert, My Angel kitty...

Hello, tonight I bring you a LO of my Angel Kitty, Robert. I love and miss my big ball of fur. This LO was for a thread of pets over at

I got the sketch from a pet challenge over at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges. It's a super fun sketch just waiting for you to play with it and your pets.

My Robert was a big fluffy ball of orange and white fur, so I made my LO in oranges. The background is GCD Studios Animal Fanatic Kitty Stripe. It has a few rows of words which are "meow, meow - purrrrrrrr- i love my kitty cat-here kitty kitty . The plain orange is just basic Wal-mart card-stock. The long piece and the piece above the photos is both from Cricut paper pad: Celebrations. I used the orange checked one and orange circle one.  I also used the checked one with a piece of plain white on top for the journal block. The sign is a piece of white chipboard cut in the design, I cant say what the design is as I got them already cut in a swap. I dabbed my orange ink all over it but it looks yellow. I took a black ink and went a round the edges. Taking a black fine tip Martha Stewart I wrote Robert. I rounded all corners with my EK corner punch. Used the EK Fastenator with the 3 silver fasteners. 2 large antique brad buttons. 2 white brads with lots of circles in what is holding his name up. I pop dotted a orange fish onto the side. The big cat face is a paper piecing I tried to match Robert but it doesn't really look like him, but I love it. I used a very light orange scrap card-stock. Sparkly green scrap piece. Orange and white polka-dot scrap piece for the collar bell.

I want to enter my Robert LO into a few challenges. Please check them out.
