Found a few minutes to SCRAAAAAAAAAAAP!

I snuck down to my little craft-room / office in the middle of the night (okay, it was 10:00. But at my age, that IS the middle of the night!) to get in a little bit of scrap-time. It felt good to get back to the hobby that I love and actually PLAY with some paper!

This is Ashli and her first Snowman. The journaling here reads:

" I just love this photo of you with your first snow man! Oh how you loved him. You, daddy & the Smiths worked on him all morning and your "imagigation" brought him to life. In your eyes he was alive, and you loved him. It broke your heart when he melted, but he will always live in you!!"
A big thank you to my dear friend Tracey Jackson, from whom I stole the lacing idea! Her layouts are REALLY fantastic!

Here is a layout I've been trying to get done since FEBRUARY. (I'm a tad bit behind) This layout documents Matani's travel from Johannesburg, South Africa to the United States. It's just a fun little collage full of memorabilia from his memorable journey. The tassels on this layout were made by Eco-Africa , A company who employs women in a small village in Zimbabwe to create hand made paper crafting papers, kits and other stuff. All proceeds go to help these women feed their families.
Look for a complete feature on Eco-Africa in the March/April issue of Scrap N' Art!

Both LO are gorgeous Krissy. The first one is just striking. The second one (and don't get me wrong) not your typical LO but really really cool.

I missed seeing work from you my friend.
