In a Scrappin' Mood

My hubby helped me hang a new cabinet in my craft room on Saturday, and that prompted some cleaning and rearranging over the next few days. All that work sorting and shifting resulted in a completely cleared off counter. WOW, it's been a long, long time since I'd seen that! LOL!!! It also got me motivated to do something "crafty" and I really wanted to scrap something! So with a particular photo in mind, I created the following sketch to post on SplitcoastStampers.
I won't be posting it on SCS until tomorrow, so shhhh, this is your "sneak peak!" It's a single photo layout using a square picture. In my case a 4x6 cropped to 4x4.



I used the Candy Lane Designer Series Paper, with it's coordinating stamp set and heart punch. As a bundle you can get them for 20% off through Saturday Jan 31, 2009. Contact me if you'd like to order yours.

The picture is of my Mom, I think early 1995, with my now teen aged nieces! She passed away the following January, just 3 months after my wedding. She never got to know my girls, but I cherish this photograph. It really expresses who she was. I love to look at it; being read to is one of my favorite childhood memories of my mom. It makes me feel warm, and reminds me of the love I feel for her still. She was the most caring and wonderful mother, I was lucky to have her while I did...love you Mom!!!
