Our latest Doodlebug challenge was to use the Kitten Smitten Collection. Even though my family has two cats, I am most decidedly NOT a cat person. If one jumps up on the same piece of furniture as me, I move as quickly as possible. There was a time when I might have become a cat person, but then we got a dog... and I'm quite happy being a dog person. (That dog was Hayden, who passed earlier this year, and now we have Jake. One of our cats tolerates Jake and the other just ignores him completely. Jake is a bit more of a puppy than Hayden ever was, though.)
Anyway, not a cat person, so I challenged myself to use this very cat-oriented collection without making a planner spread that looked like it was about cats. Here's how it looked:
I love the play of pink and black in this collection. Such an interesting color palette with the dark contrasting the pastels.
And here are some details of all the adorable Doodlebug products I used on this project:
Challenging myself to do a non-themed layout with a themed collection really pushes me to be think outside the box and flex some creative muscles that needed exercise. And in the end, I have memories on paper and that will last a lifetime.
Have a great week!
