Starting to get things back to Normal ... Christines Backpack project

Hey everyone,

So sorry about all of the mixup with not posting, I am finally getting things back to normal I still have alot of cleaning to do in the basement from the flood BUT my upstairs is livable now :).

Here is a wonderful project from Christine

My name is Christine Marshall and I'm live in Westlock, Alberta. I have 2 adult daughters and 4 step children with my wonderful fiancee Adam. My day job is in finance but my true passion is in paper crafting. I have been scrap booking for approximately 8 years. It all started by being asked to make 250 High School Graduation invitations for my daughter's class. My first experience in making layouts occurred when a close friend passed away and I was asked to assist in putting together a memorial scrapbook of his short life.I have been a Close To My Heart Independent consultant for 5 years and love, love, love to use their clear stamps on my projects. Out of all the paper crafts I love to make all kinds of 3D items.

Please visit my blog

for more information on how I made it :)

I would like to send a BIG apology to everyone for not posting lately as some of you may have wondered why there was no posts, or why your featured post was not posted.I only had my cell with me and couldn’t post on blogger till now.My hot water tank busted on the weekend and flooded my basement. My office and scrapbook room are down there sadly my computer camera and about 5 of my dcwv stack were damaged along with a cricut cartridge, all the furniture and many other things. I had to move everything out of my basement assap and stay in a hotel for the night because the water and humidity was intense. As some of you may already know I am on my own with my two year old while my hubby is serving overseas and I have no family or friends close by so yes its up to me to do EVERYTHING. I plan to continue to show all of the posts once I get my house somewhat under control. Hopefully within the next week things will be back to normal. I am so sorry please forgive me but being a mommy and dealing with this is at the top of my list right now.
Thanks for understanding
