About Me

My Photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Sweet Memories......

This one I made for a niece (in-law) that lost her grandmother recently. I thought the sentiment was so on point. I hope she really takes heed in the message. i have been reminiscing a lot lately. Going to my sisters house every other day to help out as much as I can. I think being there sometimes is really all she needs. We were going through old pics the other day and WOW...I look amazing like my mom side. I never really noticed it before. Last year we went to a family reunion and several people told me I looked just like my mom when she was younger. Then I had an uncle (my mom's brother) and he couldnt get over how much I looked like her too. Here is a few pics for you to judge for yourself.....



We are both about 9 or 1o yrs old in these pictures....

So, what ya think??....yeah I know. Now you see where the hair comes in at too!!!! Blondes on both sides of my family. You can hardly tell where my hair stops and my face begins....bwahahahahahahaha...
It good to go back to your roots and see things you never noticed before.

Until later, Sisters....Gotta split.....TFL !!!

You do resemble your mother:D Isn't it fun to recall found memories:) I like your card and love the sentiment, however, I would have never guessed that you made this card. I don't see the "Crystal Style" in it.

Crystal, such a beautiful card! I love that border. Is that a punch? Which one? I WANT it! LOL

You look just like your mom! The only difference is the black and white vs color photos. You are so pretty, Crystal!
