Enjoy Every Moment

Standard

Missing my mom and partner in crime so much! She was a funny, quirky lady who never took herself too seriously. I’ll miss that! We took a trip to Busch Gardens about 4 months ago and had a blast. I made this page for her and she loved it. Today is her memorial so I thought it was a good day to share this layout. Enjoy Every Moment. Isn’t that the truth! It’s how she tried to live her life as do I!

Love is a four legged word

Standard

Chloe lost her Grandma just the other day and I know how hard this will be for her. My mother-in-law was an awesome lady. She was an amazing mom, grandma, and dog-grandma. When she first met Chloe she wasn’t much of a dog person. Chloe won her over pretty quickly and the two of them shared an incredible bond! She will be missed so much by all of us.

Today’s card is called a triangle fold card. I love sending homemade cards to friends and family but, sometimes, my timing is a bit off! So I decide to make a belated birthday card (might need to make a few more!)

Fairies – a mixed media project

Standard

One of the larger pieces I’ve created, this 16″x20″ wood canvas piece was inspired by my love of fairies. I used a collage technique for the base, then layered with gesso and paints. I added 3D embellishments like the necklace and butterflies to add more dimension to the piece.

Abe & Dinah

Standard

Today I was challenged to create a heritage page. I decided to design a layout showcasing the only “formal” photo I have of my great grandparents who emigrated from Russia in the early 1900s. I am really happy with how the page turned out and may continue designing more heritage pages in the near future!
