Hello all my crafty friends,
Here is a project I made with the chipboard pieces “wonderful, sweet, loveable, angel, charming, incredible and amazing” from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or

I found this old picture of my first doggie named Jake.  He went to doggy heaven in 2013 after 14 years!  We loved him so.  I thought these words described him so well!  After all look how cute he was even though I made him wear bunny ears.
I first painted all the Chipboard words and then gave them a second coat with a final coat of matt clear.
I cut my photo and matted them with like papers.  I used a black and white main paper but then used watercolors to bring out the highlights of the pinks and green of the leaves.
I think it all came together well and showed how much he was loved!
I hope you enjoy!

Believe in yourself

Hello my Scrappy friends,
This is a special page because of the picture!  In my other life as a nurse I took care of patients and this person is very special to me!  He still loves to see me visit and give him a big hug.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or

I used the chipboard pieces  “ believe”  & “in yourself” and it is special as he is a very special person to me!
I cut out the ivy leaves and berries from the circuit, matted the pic from some Christmas papers.  I inked all edges.  I inked the chipboard pieces with green ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
The end result is a festive page with an uplifting feel!  To see more information see Southern Ridge Trading Company at #southernridgetradingcompany
Happy New Year!
