Got Cat Style

I think is my current favorite layout.  I just love greens, blues, yellows...and, of course, my boy, Archie. This is for Scrapping the Music's newest challenge for the song Stray Cat Struts by the Stray Cats.  The prompt challenge is "Scrap a song that reflects an event in your life."  I cut the strips of paper with a design from the Silhouette...but you could easily do this by just cutting the strips with your scissors or trimmer and then adhere into a herringbone pattern.
