~Pocketful Of Memories~

Good morning my friends,

I told y'all I have been crafting this week and one of my projects
is for a friend of mine (Lindy), who is an amazing inspiration to me,
as is her daughter who has helped her mom from the first day.
I have only known her about a year but she has really touched my life.
When Lindy asked me to make a page for her sister in law of course I said YES.
Lindy is a Cancer survivor and she is full of life.
I am always amazed by the people I meet. Those who show you what
is really important in life and just how much surviving really means.
I think that must be our common bond: survival.
She was featured in the Martina McBride video, you can read her
amazing story here: Lindy's Story
It's always hard to figure out what to do on a page you make for someone else
but I had an idea of exactly what I wanted to do for this special page.
Lindy is full is spunk and amazing love...I wanted to make it a heartfelt page
full of bling and pearls. The pocket is filled with photos and newspaper
clippings, there were so many I wanted a nice place to put them
without making 6 or 7 actual pages so I came up with the pocket.
As I approach 40 I am meeting the most amazing people.
This was another way crafting has helped me to reach out
to people who really make a difference in this world~
For this project I used:
Clear Scraps 12X12 acrylic sheet, KanBan Crafts, Beacon 3N1, Viva Decor Pearl Pens,
Momenta alphas, Clearsnap Smooch Spritz on the alphas, vintage lace, stickles.
