Easter layout

I did this layout last week, but wanted to get it posted on my blog. All cuts are from Create a Critter except for the little Easter eggs. They are from A Child's Year. I used white thickers colored with chalk for the wording. I also cut the flowers and Easter eggs out in white and colored them with chalk so all the colors would match.

If you notice all the critters come in pairs of two (except the Easter bunny), I did this to represent big brother/little brother for my boys. :)

Hope you enjoy this layout.

Happy Birthday!

I wanted to create something really special to kick off my blog. This is not what I had in mind, but time constraints got the best of me (trying to teach the baby to sleep in his own bed this week). So, I sat down last night and created this layout of an early picture of the twins. I'm pleased with the way it came out. Sorry about the lighting though. It's a rainy day here and I can't get a great pic.

Paper: Bazzill bling and the Paper Studio
Cricut Carts: Home Decor and Home Accents

I will be adding to my blog next week. It's going to be a work in progress for a bit, but you can see more of my work (and become a fan) at http://www.facebook.com/MacybellaDesigns

Mama loves you both so very, very much. :)


Hi Everyone! Welcome to my new blog. Today is a very special day for me, not only because I'm hoping blogging will lead into a new phase of my life, but because today is my twin's birthday! Eleven years ago today I was in the delivery room about to give birth to my beautiful twins, Andrew and Macy. Today Andrew turns 11. Macy is celebrating her birthday in Heaven. We lost her in a house fire almost 4 years ago, just after she turned seven. Thus the name of my blog and the reason for bringing this dream to life.

Macy and I both love art. I made her a promise in the letter I buried with her that I would always do something artistic to honor her memory. I love scrapbooking and paper crafting, so that's where the promise has materialized. I'd give anything to have my girl at my side scrapping with me, but she's dancing with the angels so this one's for you, baby girl. :)

Here's a picture from their 7th birthday party. Taken just weeks before the accident.

I hope you'll join me on my journey in paper crafting. I don't claim to be perfect or even close to it, but I do enjoy it and have fun with it. Isn't that what's really important anyway? :)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll sign up to follow.
