This LO was easier as far as the digi scrapping went, but hard on my heart...Alex was the dearest sweetest furbaby you could have. He died about a 1 1/2 years ago and I miss him like it was yesterday...


What you can't see in this picture is that his head is on one stool and his butt is on the one next to it- with his kitty flub belly hanging down in the middle! I have some pics of that I will try to do next. Alex was quite a character!

I used Scrap Flair software to create the LO.

Awww,Tonya I bet you are having fun watching those kittens! We had 2 litters when the girls were little and it was so much fun & such a special time! I had people lined up for them because they were Manx, and several had bullseye markings but it was hard to part with them they were so adorable & we loved each and every little purrsonality!!

Christi, because of my severe allergies, we have no pets for me to scrap, so I get to enjoy the ones that are posted. This LO is so great. The colors just blend so well. It's a good way to keep the memories.

Judith- Thanks for the kind compliment!

Wait till you see the pics of him where you can see how his head is on one stool and his fuzz butt is on the other, with the belly hanging down in the middle! You'll have to laugh! He was so so funny.

Christi,
What a cutie he was, he reminds me of my tabby Wolfie(he's gone too, I know what if feels to miss the little darling) They do such crazy adorable things and bring so much love.

They sure do Penny- such human attributes sometimes.

Funny ALex story:

One day he was laying on my scrapping counter w/ all 4 feet up in the air. My DD Sarah says "tickle his belly Mom!" SO I tickle him, and she keeps saying "do it again"

well, about the 4th time she says do it again, he sits up and slaps her across the face with his big furry mitt! THen lays back down! LOL

You shoulda seen her face! Good old Al knew she was the one egging me on. We've had many a laugh over that one!
