Sad News About A Fellow Designer


Sandy Tice January 2008




Those of you who knew Sandi are aware that Sandi had survived breast cancer twice, suffered from severe nerve damage from reconstructive surgery and developed lung cancer in December a couple years ago. She fought hard and continued to live life to the fullest as much as she could.

Right after she was diagnosed with lung cancer and was going through chemo, she pulled herself out of bed to go serve water to the runners in the Breast cancer Marathon in her city. She told me she couldn't not do it because "they raced for me."

Even as the cancer metatisized through her body and brain, Sandi clung to life. She and Gary made a trip to see the oldest daughter summer before last and stopped by here to visit with me and my husband. We went out for a Chinese buffet and she had us all laughing.

She planned her youngest daughter's wedding while going through some kind of lazer knife treatment for lesions on her brain and on the day of the wedding, she dressed up, put a hat on her bald head and went to celebrate. In photos from the wedding, Sandi looked radiant, her inner beauty shining through. This past year as treatment options ran out, she did her best to stay positive, thankful for every minute with family and friends and even continued to work a little when she could.

Yesterday I received an e-mail from a friend of Sandi's (guess Gary was too broken up to think to let me know) and learned that Sandi returned home to God on 11/18. She was buried yesterday. You can read her obituary and send condolences to her family by going to this address:

The scrapping community is going to miss her. I know I sure will.

Fun with Glamouricious by Moo's Scrap World

What a fun kit this is! Very girly and glamourious as the name implies. I found this at Southern Comfort Scraps here:
http://southerncomfortscraps.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_182&products_id=614

Done up in pink, purple and black, you will find lots of fashion accessories and beauty items. I wanted to create the effect of s boutique window display with this layout:



I really liked the effect of the awning so used it again in this layout:



Don't yet have a good photo of my grand daugher for a Princess page but came across an old photo of me at about age 5:


saved the page as a Qp for adding Larkin's photo one day.

And finally I had to play with making a tag:

I saved it with the photo areas blank for my friend, Joni, who created the kit but added Posers by http://dicvicbarnes.com and a backing of one of Joni's papers to show you how it would look complete.

Spunky Baby Boy by Felice Originals

This is a cute contemporary kit for photos of your favorite baby boy. While it has some traditional baby elements (bottle, bib, blocks, etc.) they are done in great contemporary colors of blue, green, white and light orange. There is also a touch of the technical found in assorted gears. When I first saw the gears, I thought, "Oh yes, boys come into the world with the wheels/gears already spinning. Forget snips and snails and that old rhyme. Boys are packages of boundless energy, full of curiosity and spunk." I know my son and grandsons are like that. You can find the kit here:
http://exquisitescraps.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=8_227&products_id=5208
http://aussiescrapdesigns.com/#

Going way back in time, here is my son in 1978. This child never took naps; he was always wanting to do something.

Note: I cut the cloud tag from one of the papers and extracted a single diaper pin to attach it to the ribbon.

And here's my oldest grandson, Tyler. He was a baby with a million expressions, just a few shown here when he was less than a year old.

Note: shape cut using a template from Christine Nash.

Speaking of Ty's expressions, I had to scrap this one. To me it says, "Why am I in this cage?"

Note: One of the blocks in kit altered to change letter to "T." And gear altered to create frame.

Have a few Wedding photos to scrap?

If you have just a few wedding photos to scrap - perhaps of a friend or family member - try this kit, Wedded Bliss by Tink's Designs at Southern Comfort Scraps:
http://southerncomfortscraps.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_179&products_id=311
The colors are soft pinks, lavender and mauve. Here are two pages I made with a couple photos from a cousin's wedding to give you an idea how your pages could look.


Here's the bride, Jeanne, before the ceremony:


and the newlyweds lighting the unity candle:

Doing a little scrapping with So Blue

So Blue is by Whispy's D'Zines of Sunflower Scraps Boutique and you can find it here:
http://www.sunflowerscrapsboutique.com/boutique/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_187&products_id=3065&zenid=30aa58e6caf5af1f546d2d91e5547388

This works so well for a treasured photo of grandson Tyler's first Christmas:

I love the way the blue background picks up the blue in his outfit and the silver gives just the right touch of holiday sparkle. The Poser (in kit) is from MediEvil Creations.

Designer, Julie, said she was in a blue mood when she created this kit, so I thought this photo of my God-daughter, Rachel, who is normally bright and bubbly but looks serious here would show how the kit could address a blue mood.


And for fun I created a little tag for Julie, Just Let A Smile Be Your Umbrella:
