About Me

My photo
BC, Canada
I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !

Don't tell her about the frame !

I altered a Bazzill Wings Shadow Box to hang the four layouts I did for Mom's birthday ! This is such a nifty idea as the top lifts off for 2 hooks that the page protectors hang off with the layouts inside . I have also added the other layouts on the back of these so the whole look can be changed with just flipping the layouts around ! I am almost as excited about giving them to her as DH was urprized with how great it all came out !
The pretty prima flowers were such a perfect addition to the frame and the Cosmo Cricket Chipboard Alpas were the perfect compliment against the back frame !
Now my biggest challenge will be packing it all in my suitcase and praying the airlines done lose my suitcase ! I carry as little as possible onto a plane now as they want are so strict nowadays and there is nothing worse then having to unpack in security !!!
