Love You

STD_Christie1Since my mother passed away last August, I’ve been pretty obsessed with finding every photo that I can of her.

I fell in love with this particular photo. I’m not sure why…maybe it’s because she looks so serious; Mom never took herself too seriously – she was always smiling. There are not very many photos where my mom is not smiling, in fact, this may be the only one.

I wonder what she was thinking…how she was feeling…


I took a chance and got a little experimental on this layout. I played with the new Teresa Collins modeling paste and stencils. I added a little glitter before the modeling paste dried.


To create a  unique and interesting background, I used another Teresa Collins stencil with black paint. I really loved the way the it turned out. What do you think?


Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day!

XOXO, Christie

    Beautiful page Christie! Your mom looks so pretty ! Great use of the molding paste and all the pretty embellies! I missed you at PSB this weekend! We had a great time with Marion Smith! Hugs

    Yes, as Char says, we all missed your bright self at the Marion Smith classes. Picked up a few new techniques, like hand stitching a little book binding, used a new tool for making paper flowers, and mixing up spray paint from scratch. Anyhow, love your stenciling and your mom’s pic is lovely.
