Today I created a layout for a challenge for the mini crop at Creative Inspirations as well as for the new sketch at Sketches in Thyme. The Challenge at Creative Inpsiration is to have a pet in your layout and I incorporated my baby Oliver (Ollie) in the sketch, to cover both challenges.

Ollie has been sick for over a week and while he was sick he would only sleep on the floor at the end of the sofa, so when he jumped up in my lap the other day, I knew he was well on the road to recovery and I was so happy it was hard to hold back the tears. Ollie has been the most loving cat I have ever owned. He wants to be with me wherever I am and whatever I am doing, especially if I am scrapping, so when he didn't want to get up with me, it hurt to know that he was hurting that bad. He had a lot of fluid in his upper abdomen cavity, but we don't know how it got there and he didn't eat for a and didn't drink so he became dehydrated requiring IV fluids and several blood tests and X-rays over time to keep check on his abdomen to see how the fluids were doing in his abdomen. It required a lot of medication and if you have ever had a sick animal you know that these things come with a high cost. So I was very happy when every thing was cleared up, so was my bank account.

These photos show the first time after he was ill that Ollie came and jumped up for some loving, which I was very happy to give him. :)

For this layout I used Photo Play Roxie and Friends papers.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment to let me know you were here. I love reading your comments.
