Pet Week! SVG File: Cat & CATS Word Book

I don't want the cat lovers to feel left out!  Today I have pictures of the word book I just made for my sister's birthday.  She has two cats.  One is twelve years old and has some serious crankiness issues.  I call him "El Diablo".  The other is almost a year old.  He was a rescue and is such a sweetie.  In fact I believe he is turning "the evil one" around!
Don't forget to share a photo of your pet related project and/or leave a comment about your pet. 
Details at bottom of post.
Above is the cover of the book.  I cut the pages out of cereal boxes...two per page and then glued them together.  I also double cut and glued the individual letters so that they stand out from the pages.  I used all "cat-themed" scrapbook paper on the pages with coordinating solids for the letters.  I distressed everything using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and bound the book with my Cinch.

Photo above shows pages two and three.  The "C" frames an oval for a picture.  The "kitty" tag is from a file I collected.  (Sorry I don't know from who.  If you let me know, I'll post your blog address)
Pages four and five have old Scrabble tiles spelling out the photo captions.

Page 6 has a cut file of a cat that you can get below.  I also created a little pocket to hold a journal tag. 
For page seven I used one of my Tim Holtz memo pins and a "Love" ticket.  I stamped the paws on the red cardstock with Versamark.

The back page has another full cut of the cat file that you can get HERE.

Like the CATS Word Book?   I will send you the file for a $3 donation. 
All proceeds from that donation will be given to my local animal shelter. 
If you'd like the file please click on the "Donate" button below. 
Once I receive your payment I will email the file to you.

Do you have a scrapbook layout of YOUR pet?  We want to see it!  
Do you have a funny or heart touching story about your pet?  We want to read it!
Please go to this POST for all the details and a chance to win a couple of prizes.

I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying reading all the comments about your pets.  Some make me smile and some give me a lump in my throat but they are all great...keep posting them please!

What an amazing gift this is! I, too, have a rescue cat. His name is PITA (Pain in the Anatomy) as he was SO starved for attention that he was almost a nuisance when we first got him and still is today, LOL I love him dearly though! We also have a rescue dog, Codee (Newfoundland Mix)and he is just the SMARTEST dog I have ever seen! I so wish the people who had dropped him off could see him today. He is by far the best dog we have ever owned! *Hugs*

Glad to see you helping locally. I too do volunteer work for out local no kill shelter. I just got 2 books of cards that are "cats" for my girls. Because I help the shelter I have rescued 9 cats myself. So we are big cat lovers. I didn't forget the dogs we have 3 of them also.

Cindy love the book. I have a my cat layouts I can share but I already shared the dog one. Don't know if it is ok to put 2 or to take the dog one down. I'll link it and you can let me know but I wanted to share the story of how I as a dog person ended up with all these cats and lost my scraproom in the process...LOL It is a long read but worth it.

I don't do word books but this is one that would make me reconsider the project - lots of photos of my 4+ kitties.

Thanks for the free kitty cut file.
