My Name is Earl

A layout dedicated to one of the sweetest cats I've ever known. Sadly he passed on in 2006 at the age of 14, long before I was ready to say goodbye. I just couldn't bring myself to write my name WAS Earl though.

I used some stripey paper and cut out four of the same stripes and then mitered the corners. The title is from American Crafts (foil). I added a little sparkle by covering the sides of all the letters with Viva Decor Hematite Glitter Liner. I used the same paper to make mats for all the photographs and the journaling. I made the large two photo mat into a pocket for extra journaling by adhering it with ATG tape on the bottom and sides only. Earl is cut from the font on the Birthday Bash cartridge. I welded the shadow together on my Gypsy and then just put the letters on top of that.

I made a hand cut heart to replace the dot for the i, and used Scotch Quick Dry to glue the key on. So far so good. Everything comes from the Club Ruby Designers' October kit.

Oh so sweet! I clicked on the pic to read the journaling. I've got tears. Makes me think of the sweet kitties I've lost along the way. So special. Beautiful layout. xxD
