Adonis 1st Christmas – Scrapbook Layout

Adonis - 1st Christmas

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! Can you believe we are just a week away from Christmas?

This week, I’d like to introduce you to Adonis – one of my cherished Maine Coons of seasons past. Adonis loved Christmas and – most importantly – Adonis loved exploring the magical wonderland of a decorated Christmas tree!

Every Christmas, Adonis would find the coziest of spots to snuggle in, under, and around the Christmas tree. Miraculously, he never managed to break an ornament or crash the tree in the process!

But – every time you would walk by the Christmas tree, you would find a pair of twinkle eyes brightly staring out at you!

I wanted to create a layout that captured the magic of these moments long gone, but forever cherished. The photo-realistic paper – the individually decorated slide mounts – the festive ribbon – and the WholePort star embellishments – all contribute to the mood!

Adonis was an angel around our Christmas tree – but not all cats are so well behaved. To see some naughtier kitties in action, visit Wordless Wednesday and watch the Big Cat Rescue Christmas Tree Massacre video!

Have a wonderful week as we count down toward Christmas day!!

    Adonis sounds like he was a wonderful kitty! And how great that you’ve created that scrapbook. 🙂

    Luckily for us, our cats through the years have all been very good with the Christmas tree!

  3. i love how you used the slides, they look like ornaments! Happy WOYWW! Lindsay #5

  5. What a great photo under that tree, I think you got a great shot. A nice little Christmas tale about your beautiful cat. It’s amazing how they can do all they do and not knock things off the edges of where ever they visit. Enjoy WOYWW…and best wishes for all the days we have left to prepare. #7

    How cute! I love the little frames with vellum for the text! Your cats are beautiful! I used to have a long-haired calico that I just loved! She was sweet for me, but no one else. 🙂 Thanks for much for joining us in this week’s Timeless Tuesday Vellum Challenge.

    The cat-in-the-tree thing has been trending on Facebook this week – and as you say, not all good! Adonis was a beauty huh!

  9. Tracy says:

    Love the LO, you tell the story so well. We have a dog who hasn’t crashed the tree but he has pinched one of the chocolates from the tree, we know it was him as we found the silver paper in his bed!!! Thanks for sharing, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Tracy #41

    Merry Rednesday Christmas!
    What a sweet post. Maine Coon are one of ,my fav breed, although my whole life has been as a dog person, 3 years ago God thought it hilarious to bring 6 abandoned kittens….days old to 2 weeks….into our yard. Well, we now have 3 Russian Blues and 3 American Short-hairs who think an 8 yr old Norwegian Elkhound is their Dad. and they are his pups. They refuse to play with typical cat toys……2 will get on either side of a wolf size nylabone, pick it up and carry it off to chew on it! I have yet to allow them near my tree.
    THanks for coming by
