I absolutely adore the Raining Cats and Dogs collection. I must have it.

would love to win - so cute

OMG!!! I love these. My daughter would love me to make her an album with the cats n dogs paper. Her 3 cats and 1 dog....awesome....love, love it

I love it's raining cat's and dog's and it couldn't have come at a better time. I recently lost my Honey and have been wanting to create a book commemorating her life. I've looked all over for pet themed papers and have found nothing really appealing until now.
Thank you Graphic 45 for coming out with this line. Lots of people are going to LOVE this. :)

Love this new collection. We love our pets so much. Thanks for the sneak peek.

I have 3 cats that were strays. They chose us. The first one took up with us 7 years ago and the last one about 6 months ago. It is always raining cats and dogs at our house!
