Hi  Smiley

So many of you Craftsters have made the most amazing wall decals from contact paper, and I fell in love with the idea!

In our house we've got a wall that's part of the chimney so we can't really hang any pictures or anything on it, but I figured a bit of contact paper would be allowed (we're not using the chimney since sadly we don't have a fireplace). Incidentally the corner where the chimney wall is located, is where our kitties have their toilets/sand boxes, so I thought I'd give them something to look at whilst...erh...doing their business.

This is what I came up with - inspiration came from pictures on the Net, and was freehanded onto the contact paper and then cut out:

I'm sorry about the crappy angle, but it's in a corner and terribly hard to photograph  Smiley

The kitties seemed to enjoy it and was staring at the birds for the longest time *lol* Especially our girl My who's quite a hunter and brings home little gifts for the family to enjoy quite frequently.

Guess I've gotta post a pictures of the babies too... My's the shorthaired lady on top of the sofa, and Largo's the fuzzy hunk pretending to be asleep *lol*

I love what you did. The birds on the line are definitely my favorite.  You did a great job freehanding the cut outs. Not to mention your kitties are pretty cute too.
It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

These are the BEST decals I've seen!  I love how one's standing on the litter box!  I'd love to do something like this for kitties.

*blush* Thank you both so much for the praise! It wasn't as hard as I had feared and I'm already oogling the other blank spots on our walls for more decals *lol*

So adorable!  (Both the decals and the live kitties).

I love cats. *sigh* Smiley

I -love- this!!! Now I'm plotting about where in my mom's house I might do something similar... You really did a great job. Cute and creative way to personalize your place with a really unique decoration!
