My gorgeous dog, Jess. I took inspiration from the mix of colours (even included a splash of purple!) and the black outlines.

I liked the orange tones and the stripes in the painting so I decided to add them to my layout too.

Annemarie Caister - (New Zealand)

I loved the bright colours this month so chose Photo Play "Wiskers" paper range. I challenged myself further to use lots of "older" items from my stash such as flat flowers and brads. The chipboard circles represent string or wool which my cat loved to play with. This month marks a year since she went to kitty heaven.

The eyes of the cats really stood out to me in the inspiration painting so I've gone with that.

Jane Howden - (Australia)
Inspired by the bright happy colours and the cats (of course).

Our main prize winner this year will be selected by random draw - so anyone could be a winner, no matter your style or your level of experience or your country of residence. If there are more than 8 entries in the month a second prize (donated each month by one of our team) will be drawn.
