LUCKY

Here is my manual scrapbook project on one of my cats called Lucky – how appropriate is he for a 3 leaf clover Good Luck theme.
I have been doing so many digi layouts lately that its fun to go back to manual scrappin' again.


Our poor lucky has CRF (cronic renal failure) and has been diagnosed for 2 years this year. He has however outlived the vets expectations since diagnosed. He arrived with us as he seemed to adopt us an want to join our family. We already had another black cat called gypsy and 6 years later she still is a diva around him.


Lucky is aptly named as without us goodness only knows what would have happened to him. At this time in his life each day is a blessing that he is still with us so we need all the luck we can get that he doesnt deteriorate too quickly.


This page has been made to keep him in our thoughts at all times and remember that he is truly a lucky cat.

 I have used 2 sheets of patterened paper from  DCWV latte paper stack and sliced the striped one in sections. 


I have printed off the photo of  Lucky and matted and layered it  on some co-ordinating card stock then attached it onto my papers.  


The green wheel like edging is from a sticky ribbon pack from K&CO which i thought went well with the colour scheme. 


Next i used the Accent Essentials circuit cart and cut out some fancy flourishes in 4 and 3 inch sizes. 


I then used the Teardrops cart and cut out Lucky’s name.  


I used a 3 leaf clover digi stamp which i coloured in copic markers and glazed it using ranger glossy accents. 

Assembled all the elements on the page and then added some purple pearl bling onto parts of the flourishes – just because i could!!!


I hope you like what i am showing, thanks for stopping by - this project is for the following challenges

  1. I love this layout, it is a great tribute to your wonderful cat.

    We once had a cat named Lucky and we would joke that he was Lucky by name and lucky by nature but, by the sounds of things, he was not as lucky a your Lucky. Here's to your Lucky.

    Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
