storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

marty moo

First, the news for now: Marty came home with us last night; her blood count was holding and she was eating and all of those other good things. Tomorrow we get her blood count done again, and by the end of the week we'll have some test results that will hopefully reveal causes. Besides two bald spots and some pink fur (I'm not good at giving liquid medication to a wiggly cat!), she's doing as well as can be expected. That's a relief, and I hope not a temporary one.

Second, I made a little layout:

Cute, ain't she? I'd already picked out these photos to go with some Basic Grey Olivia paper from my bonus Scrappy Chic kit, and I decided that my brandy-new Indie Girl goodies from Sassafras were a pretty good fit, too.

"Moo" is Marty's primary nickname. When she was a kitten, her meows were kind of cute and tiny, and we decided she couldn't handle both syllables of "meow." Definitely more of a "moo." Now we call her Moo more often than Marty, probably. These photos are from May -- she kept getting in the way of the shots I was trying to take of some projects, so I humored her by granting her a little photo shoot of her own.

Andrew pointed out that the "i see you" part of the title could also stand for ICU -- how timely! I'll have to scrap this whole event too someday, once we have a little distance from it.

On a completely different note, I've realized that I haven't posted my layouts to my SCS gallery in ages. It's such a stamp/card-heavy site that I guess I haven't really thought about it. I certainly don't have the energy to keep up with yet another online craft site like two peas or something.  Hm. Do you, my two faithful SCS-member-readers (that'd be Meg and Emily), ever pay attention to layouts there? Just wondering. I don't, but maybe I should.

So glad to hear that your kitty is home and hope everything goes well. I enjoy following the Scrappy Chic design team blogs, so I don't check out the gallery so much.

Aw! Angela, Marty Moo is adorable and I love your story of her kitteny meows. My DH was having a horrible time giving Pit'r her liquid meds and went to pick up the pill versions this evening. Pit'r learned to fight back and spit it out which caused it to get everywhere. It was no fun with both of us having to hold her so tightly we thought we were going to squash her. The pill is a teeny bit easier but she's a feisty one! I certainly hope Marty's tests come back clean!

I love your layout! It's so precious. I do follow a few scrapbookers but I never look in scrapbooking galleries since I'm not a scrapbooker. I love to drool over layouts and wish I had the time and space to scrapbook! Someday I will though since I love photography and have so much to document. :)

Yea for Miss Marty Moo coming home! I hope she's keeps feeling chipper and that they find the (easily treatable) cause of her issues soon. Isn't it funny how pets' names never end up what they started as?

That is the most adorable layout/pictures! Love the papers you used and the looks both of you are giving the camera. I didn't catch the "icu," either, very clever, that Andrew!

I'm not a scrapbook either (except for Snapfish type albums), so I don't look at a lot of layouts. If I see one that catches my eye in the general gallery, I'll certainly comment, especially if it's a pet layout. And I'm like you, I don't venture much off of Splitcoast and the blogs I follow in Google Reader, so I don't know much about two peas or other scrappier websites.
