A little sadness...

I am often caught without the words to express how I feel.   But I hope that through my crafting others know how much they mean to me and how much I care about them.  

As an example, after hearing the news that our dear friends mother passed away, my husband was able to travel right away to be with them.  I stayed for work and for our son to finish the school week.  We followed as soon as school was out on Friday but in the meantime -- at night -- I grieved in my craft room.  I tried multiple times to make a card, nothing seemed right....then  I remembered how much she enjoyed a framed scrapbook page that I made featuring her and her kids and came up with this...

I was honored when the family included this on the memorial table celebrating her life.  

To create this I used a frame that I got at Hobby Lobby (50% off), some Pearl Coredinations Gemstones card stock (my new favorite card stock!!), the Silhouette using a true type font, some black vinyl, a Basic Grey "bling it" rhinestone sticker, ribbon, some flowers and ColorBox Charchol ink.

Please remember to tell the ones you love, that you love them - and tell them often!!

Thanks for stopping by, next up....a "Class of 2012" personalized scrapbook album cover.


  1. I think that the frame came out very nice.

  2. A precious keepsake. I love the accents and colors.
