Once Upon A Time mini album

This is my mini album I have put together for my husband and myself...this week is our 13th wedding anniversary. He is going to help me select and put in the pics. I am not sure that I like the color combination on the cover but /i love this flower. My sister Sandy made it for the October flower swap on the scrap beach. This album is alot like the mini I created for my sister back in June of this year... because we both loved the Vintage Shabby Chic album from Robyn at Injoystamping.com. BTW...I still need to add the ribbons and lace!

Birthday Mini for Mikel...uh sorta!

This is the mini I created for my husband Mikel for his Birthday...he saw a video of it on youtube by Crystal Biby, a friend of mine on the Scrap Beach! Her youtube channel is CrysTvsky, check it out!


Now I know you all are probably thinking this is a weird mini for a Birthday but since he was born on October 31st...and we live on Cemetery Rd...across from a cemetary and we love Halloween, I thought this was a fitting mini for him! Happy Birthday Mikel!

Pink Mini for my sister Sandy with Pics!

This is a pink mini album I created for my sister Sandy, I posted previously without pictures but since I have given her this mini as a gift I can now post with the pictures included. Once again, it is a tribute to her strength and courage as a Breast Cancer Survivor. She once told me when she was first diagnosed that "Pink makes her feel good!" That is why I chose this as the title for the mini album. Hope you enjoy this glimpse into her life. The rest is still unwritten!

Her Pink Journey!
The pocket holds 8 or 9 pictures with a place on the back of each for journaling. She says "Pink still makes her feel good...so I put that on the outside of the pocket!





Doing Chemo!

Bald is truly Beautiful!!! I told her I would shave my head with her but she wouldn't let me! To tell you the truth I was kinda relieved but kinda disappointed...I have always wanted to shave my head just to see what it would be like...but never had the nerve!

Silver Lining, lemonade out of lemons...whatever...she took it as an opportunity to accessorize!! Brunette, Red Head!

But the Blonde has it! Mikel and I searched all over Lexington and then settled on the internet to find her this Rachel Welch wig that was so close to her natural hairstyle...and had it shipped to mom's house so she could get it quicker...she drove over in the snow when the delivery man showed up!

Chemo zapped her heart but she is still smiling...kinda! This was a tough time! We were told she would have to have a heart transplant eventually but Dr Rhodes was optimistic! We learned a new meaning for the word HOPE that day!
Sandy with motivational speaker and fellow Breast cancer survivor Christine Gifford...I think I got her name right....


This is a block from a quilt I made for Sandy in Christmas 2004! Pink ribbon of course!
