About Me

My photo
Hi! Thanks for taking time to look at my site. My name is Kristen and I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I am dedicated to sharing the Bible's message of hope and peace. I am married and have two great kids, Gabriel-10 and Abby Lynne-3. I don't have a lot of spare time, but when I do I like to try my hand at being creative. It is a form of relaxation and therapy for me. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing and cardmaking, although I don't sew very much anymore. Here I'd like to share some of my accomplishments when I have a chance. I am open to comments, ideas and creative help. :)Thanks for spending some time with me.

Accordian style photo book

Hi! I recently made a little photo book for my husbands grandparents with our kids pics in it. His grandfather isn't doing too good, so I thought this might cheer him up a bit. The front of the pages have pics of Abby, my husband and each of his grands. Sorry the pics are so lousy. The battery in my camera was about to go and it took horrible pics. 

On the back of the pages I used pictures of my sweet Gabriel.

On the picture on the right he was much younger, however I saw this pic and had to use it with those bright blue eyes! :)  I used a free digi stamp that I got at Making Our Mark and, thanks to Dorca's superior tuturial, I added a sky to the background. Thanks Dorcas!


  1. THis is really awesome, Kristen!

  2. What a great idea Kristen! He will love it! That will cheer him up for sure. Your kids are adorable!

  3. This is a great photo book, I love it. I'm thinking of making a mini album for my dad, and need to get a move on with it really. I have at least got some mini album blanks now...just need to make up my mind which photo's to use. Great job on your sky background. Hugs lin
