I am visiting from the Cat Lovers Hop! I love your cat page! The sentiment is awesome! Cats know what's important! I love that you drew these cats yourself - you are incredibly talented! Beautiful page! I think your daughter will enjoy this quote book! It's nice to meet a fellow cat lover - I have 3 of them! Happy Hopping!

What fun! I've always wanted to do an altered book. Your daughter is going to be thrilled with this!!

Audrey Pettit said...

Oh, how adorable! I LOVE your cat drawings, Mandy, and LOVE the advice, too! What a great idea to fussy cut your watercolor drawings out so that you could add them to your page. I adore the journaling along their tails and love the white shadow you added, too. And the tiny alpha stickers look absolutely amazing!

vinita jain said...

Love your hand drawn cats with wonderful wisdom and vintage look!

Janis said...

Mandy...thank you so much for helping me kick-off my Cat Lovers Hop!!! Love these Cat Wisdom pages. What a great idea!!! Your watercolor cats look great against the old book pages. (Sure wish I could draw like that!! Love how you have their ears pointed forward to get a better "look" at what they are seeing!) I also like how you curved the words around the contours of the kitties on the left side page. What a great way to use your alphas, on the right. I have scads of these alphas and NEVER use them!!!

Thanks for linking up and for your shout out!!

Tami said...

Oh my daughter would love this book. Great job!!!

Karenladd said...

This is just delightful in every way! Love those sweet little watercolored cats and especially the way you journaled quotes around and along their backs and tails. The letter stickers on the right hand page give a wonderful vintage look and I do love the cat advice, especially the one advising to take a long nap!! Anyone with a cat knows that cats love their naps!

Flo said...
