Ms Malinki - September Sketch - The Scrapbook Store

 September has arrived .... and The Scrapbook Store has another brilliant sketch challenge up, with a great prize for a random winner - $40 instore voucher, and free postage.  Enter by uploading your layout to the Gallery....

 I have not really followed this sketch, but the outline is 'there'.... not really into mustaches, but I am flowers!  The photograph is of my beautiful cat, Malinki.  She is a spoiled cat, and has pride and place in the home as being 'it and a bit'... she has quite a story behind her, which I will reveal in future layouts. 
 Most importantly, she is my best friend, and I love her so much ....
September Sketch, By Melinda Spinks
 Lots of splattering, inking, spraying and embossing.... I love the way the Shabby Blue, Stampendous embossing powder matched perfectly the Basecoat II, Timber paper. I also used the Aged Silver embossing powder with a Prima mask to create the texture below the photograph.  The title, 'unconditional Love' just was perfect....
 The flowers were various one's I had in my stash, and seemed to match colour wise.  I really wanted to add in some pink since she was a girl, but alas ..... a reason to create another LO.   The little 'word' chipboard piece on the flower, comes from a 'word set' which is exclusive to The Scrapbook Store - they are adorable and there is quite a range available.  You can see all 'HERE'.
 I'll be back throughout the month with further creations...

Hi Sandie, I love this layout and it reminded me of the cat that's adopted our backyard ( I call her Slinky). We've been away for a month and she reappeared the day we got home, I think she visits a few houses in the area because she looks well fed. I'm going back to your blog to catch up on the last month.
