A Girl and Her Cat

Supplies : Pattern Paper by Basic Grey; Buttons, Ribbon, and Cardstock by CTMH; Thickers Letters and Remarks Stickers by American Crafts

Okay, unlike the layout I posted yesterday, this one was fast. I made it to coordinate with the flutterby page even though these pictures are more about her with Mao. I was looking at the pictures and comparing them to how he is now and boy that cat has been through a whole lotta lovin in just the past year!! He doesn't come out that clean anymore in the wash, he has a hole chewed through his tale, part of his nose is chipped off, and his mouth threads are all loose. Poor thing! Audrey still loves him to pieces though (literally!) lol, and Mao's latest adventures have been playing Bus Driver for her chameleon (not a real one thank goodness!). She sets them up in her Little People bus and Mao is always in front driving them around, lol!

Anyway, with all that has been happening with Paul's health and trying to prep Cait for Kindergarten I'm not going to worry about submissions like I wanted to this year. I've also been working out a lot since late January to get healthier (15 lbs lost so far!), so a lot of things have been taking the place of my crafting time. And right now when I finally get a few moments to craft I want it to be just for me - to escape the stresses of everyday life. Hopefully there will be a chapter in my life where I can devote more time to trying to get published. Right now it's just not a priority anymore. Enough of my yakking though ^_~ As always thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! I'll have both sets of the Christmas cards I made for last week and this week up tomorrow :D

Another great layout. Congrats on losing weight and getting healthier. That's something I definitely wish I could do. It's hard to find the motivation.

And I'm sure that at one point in your life, probably not too far down the road, that you'll be able to find the time to follow your dreams with the submissions. Sometimes life just gets in the way of things. But that is why we are here. To experience life and all the ups and downs with it.

Can't wait to see your Christmas cards tomorrow. I still need to make mine. Yikes.
