Dedication to Somer Thompson

I created this mini page album and tag for a special family who has lost a child.
Sarah, a friend on YouTube put out a request for help to create pages for a mini book she was putting together for the Thompson family.

To find out more information on the story of Somer Thompson be sure to check out

Somer's story touched me very deeply as a mother of three. I feel honored to have been able to take part in this mini book.

Somer's favorite color was purple, so I used purple as my accent color on both my pages and my tag.

If you are interested in helping Sarah, her youtube channel is "kaczsk", send her a personal message and she'll get back with you. Pages/tags must be sent to Sarah before April first.

On the back of my tag I wrote a poem for Somer's mom and this is what is says.

She had wings like and Angel
in a lavender gown.

Her halo sparkled
as she danced around.

With a smile so bright,
she lit up a room.

She danced and twirled,
as Angels do.

Singing you are
my Sunshine,
Forever true.

(original poem by me)

"Memories of You & Me" mini

About a week ago I recieved a RAK (random act of Kindness) from my friend Rina. She is known as scrapstress on YouTube.

I was in awe that she had sent me some Teresa Collins papers! I have never owned nor seen her papers before I heard Rina talk about how much she loved all her products and that TC was her fave!

I was in love with these papers and wanted to make a special album using them, but didn't want to choose which side of the papers to use, since they are double sided. I decided to create a mini using Acrylic.

I have never made an acrylic album before but have always wanted to. Using the acrylic gave me the look I wanted, I was able to see both sides of the paper. I kept this album very simple and clean, and I absolutely love the end result.

This is by far one of my most favorite mini's I've created.

**scroll down and turn off my music player to hear the video**

Here is a closer look at all the pages.
Very simple, very clean, and very FUN!

Be Inspired!!! Happy Scrapping!

My February Tag

Last month I participated in a Tag swap hosted by Arlene for the month of February.

The theme was Vintage, Valentine, and Distressed. I had so much fun creating my tags since I love the look of vintage and who doesn't love Valentine's Day. (Red, Pink, Hearts)

I swapped with 10 other creative ladies, which meant I created 11 of my Tags, and I'll be getting 10 different tags back.

I'm excited to be swapping tags again for the month of March. The theme this month is Asian, Spring, Flowers, and green. I can't wait to get started!
