I noticed in my last posting that I incorrectly quoted the poem I used on my shadowbox die...oops! It reads, "Life Began With Waking Up and Loving My Mother's Face" Isn't that the sweetest??? Sorry about the mistake:) Love ya, Mom!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a chance to use the new 3-D shadowbox dies that talented Vicki Chrisman from Crafty Secrets created. These dies are amazing! There is so much you can do with them and I can't believe Vicki was so sweet to send me a couple along with some digital images from the Crafty Secrets "childhood" images and journal notes book. My head was spinning with ideas to use them but this one was a given!

Although Mothers Day is a bit off, I thought the papers would be perfect for a Mother's Day card. I found a beautiful poem off the internet by George Eliot that I used on the left side. It says, "Happiness is waking up and seeing your Mother's face" What a nice tribute to Mom, wouldn't you say? I'm blessed with the BEST Mom in the world and this couldn't prove it more. I used my two favorite stamp sets from the Crafty Secrets line - "Cherubs" and letters from "Top Hat". You can see more info on the dies (and even an instructional video on Vicki's blog) at


If you want to order some of the precut shadowbox dies, you can do so at the Crafty Secrets site -

Have fun blogging friends:)
