Love Me Love My .... Blog Hop

We're so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that feature the things that we love !! You'll find an array of ideas throughout the hop -- We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!

If you've hopped over from Ashley then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our Love Me Love My...., then please start at Gill's blog so you don't miss one  tidbit of fun! Keep alert for blog candy along the way as some hop stops will be offering some goodies.

I absolutely love my family, but I have often told them and my dear husband when we dating that if you love me then you have to love my Cat.  At the time, I only had Cuddles.   Of course now, I have 2 cats-Cuddles and Kit Kat.  So my project is titled Love Me Love My Cats.  Hubby does love both of our frisky felines and they certainly have our family tied around their little paws.  Especially Hubby!LOL

Ok so enough of my banter, and onto my project.  As I said, I made a layout of my 2 darling felines.   I used my favorite pictures of them, of course, and some fun bright colors.  

The Papers are from Doodlebug called Pretty Kitty(Old Paper I had from 2007).  Pink Cardstocks are Bazill Chablis and Fuchusia.  Tealish colors are Color Mates Medium Terrific Teal and Dark Terrific Teal. I used some shiny pink rick rack and Pink and Teal Ribbons.
I made little collars with the Cricut All Mixed Up Cartridge 1 1/2 in.  I ran some ribbon through it and put their names on it with a Pink Zig Pen.   I used a Fiskar Heart Corner Punch.  I used a Pink and Teal Glitter Marker by Martha Stewart to accent the hearts.  I used Martha Stewart Glitter Markers on the title and dies too.  Title was cut with All Mixed Cricut Cartridge at 2 in.
                             Doodlecharms 1 1/2 in                                                    George 2 in

                                             All Mixed Up 2 in

                                            Doodlecharms 1 1/2 in
