Scrapbooking - My Housemates Cat

HI! I have a scrapbook page to share today, for the Kraft It Up! Challenge
If you know me, you know I'm a little bit of a crazy cat lady (ok, a lot).... So, scrapbooking my housemates cat, Ollie was good fun!
I printed these photos of him sitting on my desk in wallet size, and trimmed them down... I grabbed a piece of kraft cardstock, painted the diagonal lines using white paint, then dribbled a bunch of yellow and green ink down the page. I used patterned paper from Bella Blvd, and some from the Sn@p 24/seven 6x6 paper pad  (the chipboard piece) I tore it into strips and layered it behind my bigger piece of patterned paper. Because it was torn, I didn't have to worry too much about the over laps... 
I then gathered some die cuts, as well as a label from Chic tags, Lovely Day and popped it on top of my right hand photo.  I grabbed a couple of wood veneers, these are from SC - Snippets, Speech Bubbles, I added a big green jewel for the O and added the rest of his name using alphabet stickers.
This side shows the title, which is also using more alphabet stickers, layered on to some Washi Tape. 
This corner photo features a flair button from findingnana, another wood veneer, which is the heart.
I took inspiration from the Kraft It Up Sketch -

Anyway, have a wonderful Easter long weekend
