Good Morning!

Once Upon A Sketch has a great sketch posted!  For their challenge, you must use their sketch AND how you can interpret the phrase "Do all things with love" on a layout.  For those of you who follow my blog know, I lost my cat to cancer on New Year's Day.  While I love(d) all my cats, he was certainly my favorite and fit this theme.  He was second only to my family.

The sketch...

My take on the sketch...

The word Memories was cut from Home Decor at 1.5 inches.  On the doily I cut out the center of it for a different project and layered two circle.  I attached a white ribbon around the center of the cut.
The Journaling says: "Rummy & Spikey were so close.  They loved to sleep together in the sun, play and sit together watching the birds and butterflies out the window.   When Spikey died, for 4 ½  years afterwards, Rummy would sit at the door and cry at night.   He never got over the loss.  He stopped crying at the door about the time he got sick.  By the time we felt the first tumor, his body was covered in them.  The vet put him so some meds, but it only gave him a few months.  They died 5 years and 10 days apart.  They were both very special cats.  The love they had for each other and our family was amazing to watch!  Never were two cats more loved then those two.  (Sshh, don’t tell our other two cats! Lol) "
