Curious

I took these photos of my cat, Tazo, the first day he went outside this spring (he's an indoor kitty who mostly dreams of being outside!). He moved in slow motion, alert to everything around him (including the tall weeds in the back yard), it was fun to watch! When I printed the photos, I knew I had to scrapbook them together with papers from Pink Paislee's Queen Bee collection... and I finally got around to doing it! I'm glad I waited, because I got to add some fun new QK dies into the mix! I took some introductory inspiration from a single layout PageMaps sketch & went from there... Here's what I did:
This was my first attempt at 'stitching' together two pages to show a double page spread- it turned out okay, I think... certainly better than when I photograph them together! Here's some close ups (aka the photos before I stitched them together!)


Papers & Journalling blocks: Pink Paislee "Queen Bee" collection
Die Cuts: QuicKutz plants, bee, caterpillar & Espresso alphabet. (+ flower club die)
Bling: Curious word- Kaiser, Flourish- Prima
Ribbon: In stock at the store (not sure the brand, but I love it with these papers!)

... not much else to say about this one- hope you like it! I appreciate your feedback!

Almost everything I used here is currently in stock in the store- stop by and check it out :)
