monday...a Sketchy Thursday/Birds of a Feather challenge

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is having a great Monday! Today I want to share a layout that I made last night. I combinedthis week's Sketchy Thursday Sketch with Birds of a Feather's August Color Challenge and came up with this layout:

I used pictures of my kitty Tigger from last year while he was cuddling with me till he figured out that my sweater was also a cat's toy! :)

I used simple embelies for this layout because I wanted the focus to be on the pictures. I double matted (kinda) all the pictures in black and pink and doodled with my white pen all around the edges. I printed out a scanned copy that I had of The Girl's Paperie Cabbage pattern rose paper that i scanned when I first got that paper and shrunk it just a bit so I could print it in a 4x6 photo paper. I then fuzzy cut it and added it to my layout. I finished it off by adding some stickles a a few tiny Prima flowers that I've had in my stash forever. The title I cut out with my Pazzles and the heart, believe or not, is a diecut that I made back when I had my baby Cricut (back in 2008!!!). I just ran it through the cuttlebug with the textile embossing folder and inked the edges.

Here are some close up of my layout:
