Fabscraps and Websters at the Flying Unicorn!

I just love this time of year with all the new summer releases hitting the market! Today I have two layouts to share with you, both done with recent releases.

First up is the luscious Fabscraps Shabbylicious collection.  I love the soft pinks, greens, and blues of this paper!
 This page is dedicated to the memory of our sweet Chena who many of you may know from the stories of Escape Kitty and Chena wandering the world together.  We lost Chena very tragically three weeks ago to gastric torsion.  It was so sudden and with her age at 12 1/2 and recent bout with pneumonia, we decided that it was too risky and the recovery too difficult, to put her through the surgery required to untwist the stomach, and so we said good bye to her.  Kitty's Mom, Jen, and 5 other of my scrapping buddies had just arrived for our annual scrap retreat at our home, it was definitely a horrible way to start the weekend but having them here helped us get through those first difficult days.

On a happier note, we have a lovely new standard poodle puppy, Tisha, and she is helping Nika and my husband and I smile again.  Stay tuned for lots of puppy layouts!

This is my favorite photo of Chena, it really captures the mischievious light in her eyes and the little girl look that always made me laugh.  I miss you sweet girl.

Next is a layout done with Webster's Postcards from Paris II. I love the beautiful images and pretty colors of this paper line.

I thought  the frame and roses printed on this paper were so pretty, so I decided to just use this one sheet of paper and add masking to embellish.  I used two different Crafter's Workshop masks, screen and peacock feathers.  The screen is masked with Distress Tea Dye and the feathers are masked with Viva Mother of Pearl cream paste.

  1. Oh Maggi, I didn't realize you had lost Chena. I am so sad for you. It's especially tragic when she was doing so well after the pneumonia. What a wonderful gift you gave her, to let her pass with no more suffering, and this is such a beautiful tribute page to her. The new puppy is so lucky to get such a loving mom!
