Purrfect Profile

I've mentioned before how hard it is to get good photos of my sweetie heart, Miss Gali (Galadrial).  Well, I'm so proud of this photo that was taken April 18th.  Gali has a favorite "look out" spot on the breakfast table where she can watch doves and sparrows feeding just outside the window.  I sat on the kitchen floor and started snapping away.  I LOVE her profile!
 
 
I chose to use an old collection by K&Company, Brenda Walton's Flora & Fauna.  Purple is my most favorite color and with the mix of greens, this paper was just perfect!
 
Quite a while back, I ordered custom made chipboard from Want2Scrap, just knowing that one day the right profile pic of Miss Gali Gorgeous would happen!  After a gesso prep, I heat embossed the chipboard title with Lindy's Stamp Gang color Hollyhock Scarlet Plum.  Beautiful color!

 
 
Using paper from the same collection as the main page, I created some unusual flowers with Sizzix BigZ die - Tim Holtz 'Tattered Florals'. 
 
Gali's buff color inspired me to use natural corrugated cardboard as the back drop for her gorgeous photo!
 
I used pieces from the Flora & Fauna collection to decorate the LO - egg cardstock pieces; paper punched to look like lace for the side of the LO; a vellum fern piece; the butterflies; and a wooden word banner.  I blinged up everything with purple toned rhinestones and some buttons & eyelets from my stash.
I'm so very happy with Gali's photo.  It really makes this LO!  I LOVE her SO much!
Have a great day!  Lisa : )
