So over the summer I  made a couple scrapbooks for an expecting family member. My aunt liked them so much she told me I had to make one for her. So crazy that I am, I offered to not only do the outside of the book but also all the pages inside. Crazy I know. So I have three done. I used a mixture of ribbon, paper, stamping and drawing. All the pics are of my aunt and uncle's cat Jillian. She is their child and baby so suffice it to say I have many pictures to work with....
Here's the first page

Under Jilly is a quote by Hemingway:'A cat has absolute emotional honesty. Human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.'

This is the second one I did:

This is one of her many many nicknames from my uncle. It's spelled Her but pronounced Hair. He's a crazy one. But amusing. I drew a domino next to her name plate since that is what he calls her food and she was licking her chops in the pic.

Okay last one:

Yet two more nicknames for Jillian. I think this one is my favorite so far. I sewed a button over where the ribbons intersected.

The cover isn't done yet but it's embroidered and has flower embellishments. I'll post it when it's done if you guys are interested...

So what do you think so far? Good, bad, meh? Huh Smiley

I just finished 5 more pages:

I think verrrryyy GOOD.
I wish I had the patience for scrapbooking.
The cat is so cute, it reminds me of my aunt. She acts like her dog is her son,
and calls every 5 minutes if we're babysitting.. and maked lists with things like
"if Bailey seems uncomfortable, it's because he's not in his comfort ZONE."
It's pretty funny. Grin

&I want to see the cover! Smiley

those came out really well... is that your first scrapbook?? cause its really well done. i love scrapbooking and i just finished my most recent one.

So don't take anything for granted, stand outside in the rain. An excuse, you know I planned it. Every ending ends all the same...

yes--first scrapbook. I've made my own cards for quite awhile though so I guess not too new at it. That's good i guess. i don't want it to look too amateur!
