Blogger's Challenge Die Cuts and Punches

Click on Photo to enlarge for better resolution

Caregiver's with a Heart
Today is Friday and it's Blogger's Challenge; our list mom, Lisa Sommerville, gave us the task of incorporating die cuts and punches..in our crafty creations.
Click HERE and you can view the list of the other challenge player's designs. I can promise, you will be amazed by the array of diversity and imaginative ways to use die cuts and punches.
My Scrapbook layout is of my friend Sandy; who came to our family several years ago as a caregiver for my father-in-law. This day, has always been strongly impressed in my mind; as I had no idea how this gal, so glamously clad in western attire, would have such a positive impact on my family. Her personality could light up a gymnasium.
As I was creating this layout, it came to mind, how our society hero-worships athletes, movie stars and politions. We pay very little homage to the 'Mother Theresases' of the world.
My scrapbook layout is a tribute to 'The Caregivers'....without their fortitude of strength and selflessness, this world would be in much despair.
Sandy is one of a kind...
Supplies Used:
I used Stampin Up Cardstock for the Background and the diecut flowers.. I colorized the Sizzix Bigz diecuts with Glimmer Mist spray.
Patterned paper is from Basic Grey, the Stella Ruby line and Basic Grey Holy Cow Rubons.
I also incorporated some Digital journaling.
Thanks for stopping by

I think your a great scrapper. A scrapper must put more in her scrap than only paper and embelishments. It needs a lot of love and feeling. Well you have done more than that on this wonderful scrap lO.
My complements to you.
