The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Hello and Happy Mother's Day to all my Blog Friends...

I just wanted to get a post out today in memory of all Moms everywhere, and to those Moms who work tirelessly on scrapbooking for the family, Bravo!  I see you all at the crops working hard, making sure that you don't scrapbook one more layout than the other siblings in the family - trying to keep everything fair and having so much fun archiving those memories!  This layout is for all Moms everywhere and it features KaiserCraft paper and pearls. This paper collection is mutely colored and has a delicate pattern reminiscent of Spring and upcoming Summer.  The paper is called English Rose and is a popular one that I have used a few times on various projects.  For this project and to commemorate Mother's day, I have used the ever popular Cricut Cartridge exclusive to Creative Memories, Reminisce Accents.  When I saw this cartridge, right away I had to have it.  It is chock full of frames, borders, and flowers galore that layer in triplicate!  Wow, I love layers so it spoke volumes to me.  There are some beautiful sentiments - all the sentiments I have used is from the cartridge.  Every cut on these two pages is from the Reminisce Accents cartridge so you see what you can do with the cricut and one good cartridge?  There is so much more in this cartridge than what you see here - I used two examples of the banners, one for the title and the other banner I am using for journaling on. I've chosen two of the several frame choices and sized them up for substantial sized pictures.  I see a picture of the whole family on the first page and then a picture of Mom with the children for the second page.  Or Mom and Dad on the first page and then the whole family on the second page.  The combinations are endless but you can vary or add to this design, the sky is the limit of course.  OC Scrapbookers has this paper and the pearls and I believe this is the second time she gets it in as the first order was sold out almost as soon as it hit the shelves!  Check out the home page and see how she has the new stuff featured on the home page!  Lots of hard work has been put into the store site loading up the newest additions with lots more to come.  Don't forget my friends, an upcoming day crop in Espanola!  "I Love Scrappin", first annual Espanola Fundraising crop on May 14th, beginning at 8:00am in the morning until midnight Saturday night.  It will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall and the fee is $25.00 which will go to Community Living Espanola - money being raised for the purchase of a new wheelchair van.  So all my scrapbooking buddies - hope to see you there.  OC Scrapbookers will be putting on some demos in the afternoon so hope to see you there!
