I am a retired single woman who loves any kind of crafting. I enjoy DIY projects and home decorating. My family consist of two children, my son Mike and my daughter Kim, one granddaughter, two step-grandsons and my cat Savannah.
This is Jeannene's son and Kim's brother, Mike. He enjoys playing in pool tournaments and watching Auburn football. He is the only Auburn fan in a family filled with Alabama fans.
Jordan is Kim's daughter and Jeannene's granddaughter. This is the first day of 7th Grade. A real beauty! Jordan has inherited a creative, artsy nature and loves to design things of her own, so look for some of Jordan's work to be displayed too.
Matt and Katie's Engagement Picture
This is Kim's step-son Matt and Matt's bride, Katie. They were married in May, 2010, and they both recently graduated from the University of Alabama. They moved back to Birmingham just after Christmas 2010 for Matt to join the staff of Church of the Highlands. Katie joined the staff of Church of the Highlands' ARC office (Association of Related Churches), whose mission is to aid, train and coordinate the opening of new churches throughout the nation. Best wishes in their new marriage and carreers.
Murray is Kim's step-son. He is 26 and recently graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Marketing and Public Relations. He is currently working several jobs, while trying to find the right long-term career for himself.
Jeannene's beautiful cat Savannah is 15 years old, and she has had her since she was 4 weeks old. Savannah was left on the side of the road in a paper bag in hopes that someone would find her and love her. God chose Jeannnene to take her in and provide for her. She provides more love and attention to Jeannnene than Jeannnene has time to give to her. They have become bff's while growing old together.

Kim created this sympathy card for a dear friend whose family recently lost their beloved dog, Doc.
The adorable image called "puppy love" is by Diane Carubia at disdigidownloads.blogspot.com. Kim hand tinted the image with Copic sketch markers.
The beautiful poem came from a card that Kim's vet sent her family after their dog, Cody, passed away. Kim thought it was a nice gesture, and passed the thought along. If you have problems reading the poem, you should be able to click on it to get a larger view.
This is a birthday card that Kim made for a neighbor's 6th birthday. The precious image is a digi stamp created by Diane Carubia. You can see all of her other wonderful images at disdigidownloads.blogspot.com -- check it out; you won't be disappointed.
Kim colored and shaded several copies of this cute bear with Copic markers, then she cut and layered the image. Finally, she added shimmer to the lace on the bear's dress, a pink gemstone in her ear and purple glittery butterfly.
We ran across some pictures from this summer, and found the first true "Scrappy Legg Design" because it was created just after Jeannene and Kim decided to become Scrappy Legg. This card was a thank you note to friends of Kim and Murray's for letting them, along with Jeannene, use their condo in Orange Beach for a week in July. We wanted to have a beach scene, of course, but we also couldn't resist adding a tear bear, real sand and real sea shells.
The inside of the card was a nod to all the banners we had seen flying that week. Too bad the beaches were deserted and only a few people actually saw the advertisements.
Since Kim and Murray's friends are the Hoppers, when it came time to put our thank you note in an envelope, we couldn't resist the pun and added these two happy frogs.
Mrs. Hopper is a real beauty, so this womanly amphibian is merely a caricature. How would you like to be smooched by those lips?! Our Mr. Hopper isn't telling!
Thanks again to the Hoppers for their wonderful friendship and generosity. See you in Tuscaloosa next weekend -- hopefully we'll be snacking on some gator burgers.
This is a gift card and matching box that would be a special keepsake to anyone lucky enough to receive it. This card could be given as a birthday gift to any girl young or old, but would be just a well received as a Mother's Day card, an anniversary card or even a card for an exceptional friend.
In the heart of this card is a lovely image from Whoopsi Daisy Designs. She has been colored using rich Copic professional artist markers. The background papers are shimmering rosy pinks, aquas and camel-browns. There is lots of added sparkle and shine.
The front of the card is loaded with lots of beautiful flowers, several of which are highlighted with crocheted flowers that were handmade by Kim. The crocheted flowers were then hand-tinted and sparkle was added to bring out the detail.
The inside of the card has coordinating shimmering papers, added sparkle and a hint of the flowers from the front of the card. There is ample room for any sentiment you would like to add.
Because of the depth of the card's embellishments, a corresponding box has been created to hold this special card. A mat has been added to the box for a notation or address to the recipient. (However, please note that this card cannot be mailed in this box. It will need to be placed in an appropriate shipping box if this card is to be mailed.)
The box has been adorned with a handmade rose instead of the usual gift box bow. The bottom of the rose is made of a shimmering organza material that has been gathered into petals. There are two layers of crocheted flowers that were handmade by Kim. The rose was then glittered to bring attention to all the finer details.
This is a card and envelope that was created for a few of Jordan's girl friends who were just turning 13. The graphic designs and updated pinks and browns on the glittered papers gave the cards the adult feel Jordan wanted while still looking fun, fresh and modern.
This is a two-page 12x12 scrapbook layout that is all about fun. This layout would be just right for any silly photos of funny faces, climbing trees or just "monkeying around." There are four photo mats that coordinate with the whimsical jungle vine background paper.
These monkeys are ready for play, and their google eyes add that touch of playfulness and animation.
This beautiful two-page 12x12 scrapbook layout would be ideal as a framed or unframed wedding or anniversary gift, but it would be just a nice for your pretty little princess dreaming of her Prince Charming. The message reads "Once upon a time a wish came true, and they lived happily ever after."
This couple in love is standing outside their castle. They are in silhouette in a deep plum-purple, high sparkle glitter paper -- so you get the shimmer and shine with the mess of loose glitter.
The intricate photo mats are accented with the same plum-purple glitter paper, and the clear crystal gems give the impression of diamonds.
This stallion, also accented with the plum-purple glitter paper, is ready to ride our happy couple off into the sunset.
This one-page 12x12 scrapbook layout is for the Karate Kid - young or old, just starting out or finally receiving that coveted black belt. This page would be perfect for wall art. There are two double-matted photo mats.
A few of the martial art tenants are highlighted in this border.
Form and concentration are evident in this black belt's moves.
An ancient symbol reminds us of the importance of balance and the deep history of martial arts.
I am a married mother of three. My husband, Murray, and I have been married for almost 15 years. I have one daughter, Jordan, age 12, and two heart-sons (step-sons who are mine in my heart), Matt, age 23, and Murray, age 25. In May, 2010, we welcomed Matt's bride, Katie, to our family.
