I continue to try to get as many photos as possible added to the new computer. I find one of the best ways to do that is to go back through old e-mails. I sadly admit that I am an e-mail hoarder. But that supposed fault has paid off in me finding some photos I don’t even remember. Today’s art was created from one of those photos.




The original photo is one of two taken by Diane, C.J.’s first foster mom. We formally introduced you to Diane yesterday. If you missed that post, Lily Olivia is a Survivor, you can click on the link at the bottom of this page.

Here are the two original photos.











Wasn’t she the most adorable baby ever? No wonder I couldn’t resist that sweet face when I met her the first time. And she is still my baby. Though she is the youngest cat in the house, she is far from the smallest. Only Giulietta outweighs here and not by much. I never expected my itty-bitty baby would grow into such a substantial lady cat.


I didn’t do too much to the original photo for our art submission to Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. I used Pixlr. to add two overlays: Coulorlovers and Flower Power Paper. The flower border was added using what has become one of my favorite spots to get great frames, PhotoFaceFun. The teal and lime borders and a smidgen of the HDRish effect were added using Picasa.

Cat4-001Tomorrow marks the 59th week for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Kitties Blue have not decided which one will be hosting. Nonetheless, they sure hope lots of you will join them. They’ll let you know tomorrow what unusual animals dropped by last week. And if you have the time, tell your friends to drop on by and post a selfie. The kitties and I think this is the most fun hop out there for anipals.

See you then, dearest friends and followers.

What precious baby pictures of CJ! Love her coloring and her face is just so SWEET. I was so enamored of Sammy when we first got him that we’d had him several weeks before I realized I should be taking photos of him!!!! His “baby photos” were taken a bit after we adopted him and I’m sorry I missed out on the TINY photos!

See you for Selfies!
Hugs, Sammy and Mom Pam
