My husband and I were in the den watching TV when we hear a commotion that sounded like the front of the house was caving in. Just about the time I was going to go check it out, Vincent runs with the handle off of a grocery bag around his neck. The poor baby had gotten stuck in a bag and wresteled with the bag until he had ripped part of the bag away. You can imagine how hard we laughed. Even though I knew how badly he wanted that handle from around his neck, I had to run grab my camera first to snap a picture. Immediately I decided that the bag handle would be incorporated into my layout somehow.
I used a sheet of patterned paper called Bookworm from the Chic Tags Happy Place collection. I matted it on a piece of kraft cardstock to mirror the bag. I also used several cards from the new Simple Stories http://simplestories.typepad.com/simple_stories/snp-core-collection.html Cat collection and used a frame from Crate Paper to frame Vincent's photo. Finally, I used a few enamel dots to bring out the colors used in the layout.
I added some letter stickers and some journaling to the bag to help blend it into the layout.
