National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day!

by admin

Good morning & Happy National Adopt a Shelter Pet day! What a fun day to celebrate as I know many of you have adopted a shelter pet at some point in your lives. We all love our fur babies and using our Journey Book inserts is a great way to to document the fun, happy, and silly times with your sweet pet or pets! Today I am sharing the story of how I met the neighborhood cat in the small town neighborhood my brother lives in.

Supplies Used: Color washed Journey Book insert; Explore Your World Tags Paper; Blush Washi Tape Set; Best friends Sculpted stickers; Cats Illustrated 2" stickers; Cat Faces Puffy Stickers & Cat Faces To Go stickers.

I used one of the cut apart cards from the Explore your World Tags paper to make a pocket to hold my journaling. I did my journaling on 2 tags and used my computer to do the journaling as this story was a bit long as it covered 3 years! I stamped directly on the cut apart card so the date was front and center to remind me of the first time I met Buddy! Here is a close up of the journaling tags

The journaling chronicles how I first met Buddy the cat back in the Fall of 2016. While on my yearly visit to my brother's home and while on a walk with my little nephew we saw a cat sunning on the front porch of a home. I found out the next day from the home owner of the home where he was sunning himself that he was actually the neighborhood cat. He was super friendly and instead of taking him to the shelter all the neighbors in this small community care for Buddy so all his needs are met! For the past 3 years I have visited my brother every Fall & my nephew and I always walk in the neighborhood and go visit Buddy. If we don't see him we call for him by name and he will come running to us! This past Spring when I heard of severe flooding in my brother's town I immediately became worried for not only the townspeople but Buddy! I was so glad to learn after the flooding was over Buddy was safe and sound and his neighborhood family as usual was giving him the best care and watching out for him!

I think the Best Friends sculpted stickers, Cat Faces sticker to go, Cat faces puffy stickers & the Illustrated cat stickers were the perfect embellishments for my story! I love how puffy stickers give your spread some texture without all the bulk, especially when using a smaller format to document your memories!
