Sad News

Hey everyone!

Top 4 Badge!
 I haven't really done much the last week or so. Its been a rough week in our family as we had a very sick pet. We had to make the heartbreaking decision to put her to sleep. Oh my goodness, I thought my heart would break! We have had this little cat for near on 18 years. When she was 3 she was hit by a car and paralized. My hubby was told to have her put down. He decided to keep her so all this time he has been expressing her bladder and looking after her with so much love she is became like one of the kids. She was so dependent on us as she couldn't go outside. She gave us all soo much love. She would sit with my little girl while she dressed her in dolls clothes and bootees. She was wheeled around in dolls prams and just generally always a constant companion. We are all heartbroken and it will take some time to adjust.  Here is a photo of her.

She was just the most gorgeous and affectionate little cat.  We are missing her terribly :(

On some happier news, I made top 4 at the Feeling Sketchy challenge blog!  But to make it even more exciting, my name was in print next the the absolutely fabulous Liz Webber!!!!  OMGosh, what a buzz!  I have really been enjoying these sketches and all of the work is just amazing.

As I haven't done much thought I would share with you a couple of layouts that I completed for my DT commitments with Mad About Scrappin'.  This kit was so much fun to work with and I love the colours.

Here is the link.  These kits are an absolute bargain.  I got 3 layouts out of it.

Thats it for me.  I do have some excitng news coming up but can't say too much yet.  Will let you know all about it when I can.

Take care.
