BAP October - "Life in the palm of your hand"

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a couple of layouts to show. This one is of our two day old kitten! Our house cat Carley ran away from home. We were devastated until 2 weeks later when see came back to our front door crying to get in. It didn't take too long to figure out she was pregnant. Four beautiful kittens were born on Oct 9th. We were excited and we have found homes for all but one already.

This layout follows the Prima BAP October Sketch. I rotated it clockwise.
Mitchell my son, is holding this precious baby in his hands. She was so small.
I really went to town using Prima's Fairie Belle Collection - La Spa , Prima flowers and pink and gold bead accents!
I fussy cut the Fairy Ballerina and then added pink, gold and copper beads to her skirt. 
I added pink Stickles on the Prima flowers and the tiny bird.

To make the splash I used a combination of pink and gold paint mixed with white glue. I painted this mixture on the page, set the large beads in place and then sprinkled micro beads to fill in the open areas.

It has been a real learning experience having these little kittens in our house. I think it has been good for Mitch to feel the responsibility of holding a 'life in the palm of your hand'.

See you soon!
