Kraft + - June Challenge

Animal Print & Circles
Here is the link:
For someone who is not such a huge fan of animal print, and had second thoughts about even doing this - I actually really enjoyed it... once I remembered an old Prima paper I had in my stash! 
Not so scary after all!
To be honest, I even did 2!!!

Here is my layout

Apprentice Wild Thing


When I first got Cleo, it didn't take her long to figure out a nice warm spot in the afternoon sun. The window ledge became her  favourite spot in the old house in Burra.

I used to wonder what she would be thinking... gazing out into the great blue - or green - yonder...
When she got bigger and I let her venture outside, she still didn't really become too adventurous, preferring to stay close to home.  The photos I took of her first step into 'outside' are so cute and show how tentative and curious she was.

And a close up...

I did a bit of stenciling with distress sink, added some texture paste with some random circles from various stencils, then started layering my papers. I used an old IOD range from Prima, 7 Dots Thoughts Keeper and of course Kraft as my base!  The title is made up of Thoughts Keeper letters, (cut into circles) and some Kraft coloured Thickers.
Embellishments were mainly Prima flowers, Scrap Matrix lace, bling and some wide jute ribbon.
I am really happy with how this sweet little layout turned out!
Cheers, Vicki
