The large photos mask journal boxes underneath. The first one has the lyrics to the song * I loved her first* by Heartland, which was thier father/daughter dance song.
The second side holds the words to the poem that Cindi wrote for her Daddy. She framed it, with a photo of herself and her dad (seen in the small photo on this page), and that was the gift she gave to him. Yes, it made the big guy br4eak down. Bless his heart!I'm really happy with how these pages turned out. It feels so good to be scrapping again too!

Doesn't it amaze you that cards which appear quite simple, can take forever to come together, (example; the recipe card below) while others, that seem more complex go together in a short period of time ( like the wedding card above). I'm a slow crafter to begin with, but gosh, I can worry for hours over little details. I'm sure that says a lot about my personality, but then I've always said I was a complicatedly simple woman. LOL.
This next card is a recipe card, with a LO on one side and a recipe on the other. I made a whole set of these to swap with the girls on a weight watchers thread over on the Cricut Board.

This is Tilda with a Lace Dress
This is Swimsuit Tilda.
Take a peek, and you'll likely fall in love with them. Don't mind my coloring skills though, that is something I am very new to doing.
I'm Kelly, known online for many years as chantryss. I live in Ohio, with my husband of many many years, and our chocolate labs and siamese kitty. I am lucky to have my grown children living near to me.
I have been a crafter, as far back as I can remember. I enjoy many artforms, but scrapping is by far my favorite. I have been digitally scrapping for several years, and started paper scrapping, stamping and card making a bit over 2 years ago, thanks to my daughter in law and best friend, Karen.
Now, I am a true addict, and find my life not feeling balanced if I haven't had a chance to be creative at least a few times a week. The same as most e4very other crafter I know!
So allow me to share with the cyber world some of my dabblings, and perhaps I'll make some new crafting friends along the way!
