A Happy Mail Day

A little while ago, Carolyn Summers wrote to ask if she could donate a journal for me to decorate to sell. I said I would love it! Today it arrived. Much to my amazement, it is a chipboard journal and the cover had 'Mexico' cut out of the board. I couldn't wait to get started - having just bought a bag of scraps. Off I went - and I have the cover completed.  Have a peek.

These scraps are so much fun to play with, I can't believe it!

The album has four more chipboard pages, and of course, Carolyn could not resist sending me some beautiful papers.  Thank you, dear friend!  You are simply the best.

No more for today.  I've been working on a birthday card, but can't blog it for a couple of days, until after the birthday get together.

Thanks for dropping in again today.  Thank you for your comments.  They always give me a lift.  And friendship!  A strange commodity isn't it.  Never having met Carolyn, I feel like I know her and love her like a sister.  Thanks again for all the lovely goodies.

“There is a destiny that makes us sisters, No one goes his way alone; All that we send into the lives of others, Comes back into our own.”
Edwin Markham (1852-1940)

Oh Donna, the cover is spectacular. When you mentioned scraps I had forgotten you purchased a bag of fabric scraps. How perfect! The cover alone will draw in a customer for sure. I am so inspired with what you have done so far. I knew you would turn the blank pages into something really special.

Thank you for your kind remarks. I, too, feel like we are sisters.

Love hugs,
C
