Xmas Kitty

It's seems like forever since I done a challenge at Lasting Memories.  I've been way to busy December getting ready for Christmas, girl scouts and sick kid.  But I was able to get a layout done.

Since it was Sebastian's first Christmas with us, we took him to Petsmart to get his picture taken with Santa. I'm not sure if he liked it or not but I do know he did not like the wait in line with all those big dogs.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory RCS-#17

It's the last challenge of the year at Red Carpet Studio and it is an anything sweet project.  It is open to our layout and card friends.

This week's sponsor is Vampire Craftin -  You should check her out.  She redid my blog, isn't it pretty.

My layout has a story behind it.  This is the one time a picture is not worth a 1,000 words.  My Chinese Water Dragon, Stitch, was out on my kitchen table with me while I was making some gift bags for Christmas gift cards.  He usually just lays in one spot and sometimes he will move a little.  Stitch ran, like the retarded dinosaur that my daughter says, right to the plate of cookies.  I moved it away from him so he won't go on top of the plate.  A few seconds later he did the same thing but I was too slow.  As I moved the plate away, he had grab one of the cookies.  The cookie broke off and he actually ate the small piece in his mouth.  It was the funniest thing I had ever seen.  Don't worry he is just fine, he looked a little hype right after he ate it but is back to his normal mopey self.

I knew right away that this was the sweet challenge layout that I was going to do.  I hope you enjoy.

Go over to the Red Carpet Studio facebook page and check out the really cool 200 like prize.
