Becky Higgins, founder of Project Life and has an exclusive line of Project Life stuff wanted to put something together for the Swapp family that may, in even the very smallest way, bring comfort over the coming weeks, months, and years. Heidi and Eric Swapp’s 16-year-old son Cory passed away very unexpectedly. Heidi Swapp is also a big name in the scrapbooking industry and a contributor to Project Life but more importantly is a friend to Becky Higgins.
Nothing can take away the sting and the sorrow that they must be feeling, but to know that they are so very loved is indeed a help to Heidi and her family during this very tender time. Through Social Media Becky asked anyone, anywhere to make a 4×4 card that will be later compiled in an 8X8 album. The idea is that the Swapps will have something tangible to hold in their hands. Something they can flip through as they read messages upon messages of encouragement and love from family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and even strangers. Basically anyone and everyone who wants to express their condolences.
Today’s post is the 4×4 card that I made for the outpouring of love and support for a family that I don’t know; although I took a class from Heidi years ago at CKU(Creating Keepsake University) in Orlando Florida and was amazed by her creativity. My card was made using the Stampin Up Watercolor Wings #139424 stampset. I added a banner that was notched using the Banner Triple Punch 138292. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs #128706 stampset.
