Challenge Me Monday #102

Happy St Patrick's Day!!  Hope you're all enjoying the weekend!  We're getting ready to head to the parade, but I wanted to get my post up first.  :)

The project I have to share today is something I created for the challenge this week over at Fantabulous Cricut.  The challenge is In Like a Lion - make a project with a cat, lion, tiger, etc.  I've been wanting to make this for a while now and this was just the motivation I needed to get it done.

I started with a plain white chipboard frame and found some cat-themed paper that I covered the entire frame with using Mod Podge.  I added thin brown ribbon over the seams where that papers met.  Then I added a cute cat image and my cat's name.  I covered the entire thing in Mod Podge to give it a protective coat, then added a double bow to finish it off.  Then all that was left was adding a pic of my baby girl!  My sweetie liked the way the frame turned out and I have promised to make one for our beagle as well - you'll probably be seeing that before too long!  Thanks for coming by and I hope you enjoy the weekend!
