Recently a new secondary school opened in Kirkwall, Orkney and within the complex is a new community theatre.  Last week the first show took to the stage and it was Cats.  It is almost unheard of for an amateur company to be given full production rights to Cats but Andrew LLoyd Webber gave his permission and as opening night approached he even sent the company a letter wishing them well.  All shows were a sell out and those who attended have all said how fantastic it was.

The reason I've posted about this production is that my niece Leanne went to the auditions and from there went through to become one of the cast.  We were so delighted for her and from this experience she'll have memories that will last a lifetime.  The impact of this whole event will be remembered in the community for years to come.

To wish her well I made Leanne a good luck card using the Nitwit Collections Me-Wow Too and Me-Wow-Lil Bits.  Papers and elements from the collections were transferred to the My Craft Studio programme to create an almost one layer card. 

This is the first almost completely digital card I've made and it took me just about as long to make as any other card, before all the elements were sized, orientated and ordered, but without the mess.

Only one embellishment was added and that was the Quickutz die cut paw.  Even the ribbon was a digital element this time.

The insert too was given the digital treatment although there were a couple of print offs before the message and pictures were the right way round when folded.

Elements from the digital collections were used to decorate the back of the card too.

Below is a photo of Leanne in her Cats make-up and costume.  She's the one in the middle.

Thanks for reading today and letting me have a proud Auntie moment.
