Be The One Run - support patients in need of a bone marrow transplant

Hi there! I had Leukemia and my brother was my donor. Many people must go through the registry. Please view the video and pass onto friends and family... who knows, they could be the one and save someone's life (like my brother did for me).

Craft Warehouse: Sketch Challenge

This page went fast. Having a sketch to follow made the process simple! I did modify the outside of the design for this 8x8 scrapbook page.  Check out the challenge, as entries end soon.

Craft Warehouse: It's a White Out Challenge

This challenge forced me to grab as much textured embellishments and different types of papers all staying within the white out theme.  I added a bit of black to bring focus to the picture.

Craft Warehouse Homemade Flower Challenge

Check out the challenge for integrating homemade flowers into a scrapbook page design.  This page was a delight to create. The colors are bright in contrast to the rainy weather yesterday. Watching a Lacrosse game in the pouring rain my youngest son asked me, "Isn't this suppose to be May Mom?".

My daughter and I have always loved "Live, Love, Laugh".  It just simply summarizes this wonderful life.  And for this blog, "Live, Laugh, Create" fits the focus.  I hope sharing some fun ideas in scrapbooking, oil painting, water color, pencil, calligraphy and laughter will bring you some inspiration to try your own thing, whatever it may be.
