In Loving Memory of my Mom

I have been truly blessed by the outpouring of prayers, cards, and flowers that you have sent my way this week. My family and I have been so touched by your amazing kindness! I wish you could've known my Mom...I know you would have loved her. She always had a smile on her face and held such a positive outlook on life. Sadly, her life was cut short by illness but she never once doubted God...she always chose to trust in him. I'm sure some of you may be facing stormy times in your lives, I hope you will choose to trust like she did. Here is a slide show of a few pictures of her...

Altered Tree Canvas

Happy Monday!! 
I wanted to post a couple of pieces of inspiration for you today!  For those of you who weren't able to attend my September Scrapstasher's Meetings, I want you to see what you missed out on...I designed this wonderful Altered Tree Canvas with the assistance of Lolly's mad computer skills and Sure Cuts Alot software. The cardstock Tree Silhouette was provided to each Stasher and then we all put our scraps to great use to create colorful leaves for our trees...take a looksie...

I have one more that I would like to share with you!  It features a clear flocked transparency (by Fancy Pants) and fabulous glitters from P K Glitz.  Take a look...

Be Inspired Wednesday's!

Hello everyone...Miss Tracy here and today I have a fun Pocket/Tag Card to share with you.  In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, the Cuttlebug DT and myself were asked to create something Pink.  I chose to do something a bit brighter than the traditional breast cancer soft pink...I just wanted to create something fun and cheerful! I have many friends that I'm happy to say are Breast Cancer Survivors due to self-awareness. I have much love for these great I used the word love on my card...take a looksie...
I used some Core'dinations paper and sanded over it to create this lovely distressed finish...
I embellished the top of my tag with a few die cut felt and paper flowers and tied them off with a pretty bow...added a few jewels for a sparkly effect...
So girls, ladies, women, I hope you were inspired by my project today but more importantly...please be inspired to check your TaTa's regularly!  For more information on Breast Cancer Awareness, please visit

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Miss Tracy :)
