Scrapbooking | A Cat That Doesn't Shed

When I was a teenager, we had a family of black cats as pets, which meant that my yellow bedspread was always covered with lots of little black hairs. 

When Mama asked what I wanted for Christmas one year, I said, "I want a cat that doesn't shed!"

That year, under the tree, I found a two-tone brown cat cross stitched onto a pillow.

I still have that pillow and always smile at the way Mama gave me my wish all those years ago!

The layout design for this page was inspired by Lesson One in the free scrapbook.com Timeless Techniques with Shimelle class.


  1. Oh, I love this - both the cushion and the story! :)

  2. What a wonderful mother and an ingenious solution! I like your yellow and brown treatment in the layout, picking up the colours of the cushion cover itself.

  3. Cute story & accompanying layout. My main accessory is cat fur (lol).

  4. This post gave me the chuckle of the day! What a clever mama you had, and what a great layout to commemorate it!

  5. Nice layout. I love your color combination!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
