Hi everyone!  

So just a few days ago I went on a search for boy images I loved then I happened  to fall upon Mo’s Digital Pencil by Mo Manning!  http://www.mosdigitalpencil.com/. You guys….oh my goodness I was like a kid in a candy store every image I viewed showered me with memories, some happy, some sad and some just so perfect for life today.  Yes as I added each of the 144 images into my wish list it flooded my mind with projects for scrapbooking my old pictures of my son Matthew (now 20) when he was a baby, my own sweet 16 pictures, the vintage pictures my Mom has of my grandma….I literally went on an emotional journey of my life while sifting through them.  

So begins my new love….Mo Manningimages and here is the card I created using Big Shoes for my Mom on Mother’s Day.   I am so proud of it….well I am proud of all my creations but this one was special.  My mom always tells me that since I started walking loved I loved jewelry, pocket books and anything girlie I could find.  I would put my grandma’s pearls, grab her pocketbook and a shopping bag with a book in it and so let’s go Mama….today I love all those things as much as I did then.  I currently have 7 jewelry boxes mostly with costume jewelry,  about a dozen pocket books which I love trading with family members as my thrifty way of attaining a new pocketbook or two and not purchasing them all (I do buy some, bc I love them so) and have a very nice collection of books because I LOVE to read.  So when I saw this image it brought tears to my eyes as it caused me to reflect on myself as a little girl of how it all began….the story of me.  I always wondered would I ever be able to fill her big shoes….which is the name of this image.  My Mom fell in love with her (the image) and was taken 40 years ago when I was just 2…sniffle it was priceless!  

Here she is the little sweetie colored by me and if you scroll down to the end you can watch my YouTube video too: 

So to my surprise there was a Design Team Call for Mo’s Images…..really??  Wow what perfect timing huh?  SO this myfriends is my entry for “Mo’s Dream Team” because my Mom and son Lucas said on this day “You’re so talented and just don’t realize it.”  I create in the hopes of sharing to inspire others and that to me is enough but sometimes life takes a different turn.  Then just yesterday my friend says to me Christine you truly have a talent not only to make beautiful cards but a gift of telling a story with every little detail you put into them your amazing ….that is talent that must be further explored your Mother and son are right!  So here goes……I’m stepping out in faith and submitting my work. Yay!!


So you guys, please pray for me, cross your fingers, whatever you do please think of me as I take this HUGE leap of faith with my entry.   I love creating works of art for everyone to enjoy and I am so thankful to God for bestowing on me these artistic talents and look forward to continuing to explore my talents to share with you all.


So….ya’ll today take a leap of faith, do something you have been thinking of doing and just go ahead try when it is all said and done…. If it doesn’t turn out as you might like then you will be left with the triumph of having conquered your fears!
Have a great day!

So I have been excitedly waiting for my little baby to finish up his 6th grade in Middle School.  Time really does go by fast huh?  For my boys and I it has always and still remains extremely  important  to cherish the small things in life every single day!  There is a quote I saw somewhere that said cherish the small things in life because some day you will realize that they were the BIG things…well something like that.  Lol….I have been told that I look at life through rose colored glasses…yup I do and I am so happy I do!  Guess what my little guy Lucas is a Mini me…so does he!   I even created a layout about our sharing this trait and it is so beautiful!  So why not let me show it to you.....here it goes. 

I have encouraged my boys to take note of the small yet wonderful blessings that come our way every single day….the only difference with me is I choose to document them as well.   Life is beautiful despite the ups and downs!    So remember today take note of the beauty in life even if it is a minuet thing it should be cherished and why not documented too?  Hey I’m sure our future generations will be happy to see and read all about it!  This my friends is why I scrapbook because I want to share the roses I might see along my path in life. 
Have a fantastic day!
