Outlines - Picture This

This week's challenge over at the Outlines blog is Picture This - incorporate a photo in your project.  This is the closest I've gotten to making something resembling a scrapbook page in a long time!  This is a photo of our sweet kitty, Statia, who we unexpectedly had to put to sleep last month at the young age of seven.  For those of you who are keeping count, yes, that makes two kitties we've lost since January :-(  

I decided to take advantage of this fun challenge and make a little memorial to her, so I used just the kitty image from the Split Layering Collage - Meow (H-937) and colored it grey like she was.  I stamped the Tiny Thinking of You (AA-858) sentiment on vellum and cut it out using a Spellbinder's tag die.  I added Emerald Swarovski Crystals to the flower center and one end of the sentiment tag and added a resin kitty charm to the other end.  The patterned paper is from KI Memories.  The layout for my project is from this week's JUGS 100 sketch challenge.

Please be sure to look up the details for playing along with this week's challenge over at the Outlines blog and also check out the great cards the rest of the team has made:
