In my next life I wanna be a kitty …or Prima Canvas

I simply adore the ability of cats to sleep totally relaxed everywhere in the most fun or adorable positions. I wish I could do the same. Like on a plane…I soooo can’t sleep on a plane. Maybe it is the fear of sleeping and starting to drool on my neighbors shoulder lol ;)

This photo is of my brother in laws kitty- don’t get fooled by this sweet innocent sleeping face…this cat is an attack cat – LOL. Nonetheless very cute ;)

I used Anna’s new metal embellishments for Prima as well as her new stencil- so much fun to create with it for the Prima Booth at CHA.

    Nope, I can’t sleep on a plane. Recently flew to and from Hawaii to east coast…not a wink either way! Love how you used the canvas!

    Sorry to admit it Nathalie – I too am like a cat. I can sleep anywhere…even in the noisiest of places. Sleep is such a precious commodity – I squeeze it in wherever I can…yet I was also too wound up to sleep on the plane…so I’m feeling the jetlag today. Hope you have a wonderful break before your travels home :)

    This is a fantastic canvas – the textures are just to die for! Glorious embellishing too… love those concentric bottle tops. Also want to say a quick thank you for all the amazing stuff going on in Jumpstart – brilliant start to the year!

    I cannot sleep on the way there, but on the way back I am soooo tired that I can’t stay awake! Really nice cat piece — good balance and love the subtle color.

    Beautiful layout, love all the layers and your color choices and the embellishments! And the kitty is cute too. I haven’t flown in so long I don’t know if I could sleep on a plane or not. I would probably be too scared or excited to sleep since it’s been so long! Safe travels, and thanks so very much for Jumpstart!!!!

    Ich muss zugeben – ich hab mal zuerst die beine gezählt – nach kopfdrehen – glaub ich hab ich die position kapiert, wie sie liegt ;-) catisutra? also für ein eichhörnchen wie mich, ist das bild nicht so toll weil ich dann erst auf die layers geschaut hab – klasse – sieht einfach toll aus und schon sooo viele neue goodies ….

    Your layout is lovely as I am a cat lover. And I find it very hard to sleep on a plane just in case I droul or snore lol.

    I can sleep on a plane or anywhere for that matter. No drool but snoring is a real possibility.

    Making me want some new Prima! I can NOT sleep on a plane. Even the trips I’ve taken to Australia. I catch up on movies.

    LOVE this canvas….so much texture..its perfect. The black & white theme with just a splash of color really makes the kitty stand out. I too have issues with sleeping on a plane. I have been on only 1 overseas flight and I was MISERABLE.
