That Special Place In The Sun

Dear Bloggers,
Our lovely tabby cat Elsa passed away several weeks ago.  She was the sweetest cat with a warm and constantly purring personality.  In her later years - she died at 19 years  - she would just sleep on our beds.  Towards the end it was mostly our bed and I grew so used to having my lovely warm purring bundle snuggling up with me.  When I had a bath she would follow me into the bathroom, jump up onto the ledge and drink from the dripping tap.  When we were downstairs (she did not like our big dog very much) she would look beseechingly through the banister on the stairs and meow to be patted.  I am grateful for the long and happy life that she had - but I do miss our lovely Elsa.
I made this layout about her. Elsa used to love to spend the morning dosing in the soft Northerly sun on our stairs.  I journalled in present tense as the photo captured a living moment and that's what I wanted to caapture.

I absolutely adore the Basic Grey Curio Collection and although I am not a great fan of 'fussy cutting' I cut out these beautiful flowers and birds.  I also love Dusty Attic chipboard.
Here are some details.
