Oooohhh! I love this picture of them - they were so beautiful (they still are), but this picture is a priceless keepsake!

Wilma Cole

I love you, lady. You always make me smile.

Lisa Martz

Ok, both your projects are great, but that FRAME! (gasp) It is GOJUS!

Darnell J Knauss

What a priceless gift you've made with that sister card. So, so precious!

Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp

I am such a sentimental sap. The framed picture of your mom and her sister melts my heart. I bet she will love it and the card too - both are beautiful!


That is a gorgeous layout. Love the half rossette on the page.

Don't always comment but I do enjoy your blog posts.

Both are great projects. The scrapbook page is a great layout with the half rosette.

This is so inspirational, really makes me want to make something with one of the precious few pictures of my mom! Jn-ious!

Jan..Thanks so much for this idea. I just received a picture of my grandmother and one of her sisters from a dear relative, I was going to frame it..but this is a much better idea.


Love it all! The title of this entry reminds me of the short story you would write...I think it was called The Tearing Edge??? That was so fun to read. Do you have it some place where I could read it again?

Anyway great work. Love to read your blog!

Such a treasured gift that will be for your Mom, no doubt! All the details are perfect and the colors go so well with the tinted photo. The card is delightful as well - the embossing on the Blushing Bride dp is stunning!
