Something very Special


As you all know yesterday our dear friend Sharon
celebrated one year of blogging

I'm thinking what do you give a blog for its
1st Birthday
it's not like I could pop over to Sharon's with a cake or bottle champers
that we could share and celebrate together
Sharon is in QLD and I'm in Victoria
anyway I'm mucking about on the laptop
as you do and I end up on Quote site
this quote jumps out at me

"True friends are never apart, maybe in distance, but not in the heart."

Light bulb moment
I will do a page of Sharon and I
(it was through our love of scrapping that we met)
with that quote


Problem Sharon and I have never met for real
our friendship has developed through the internet emails and phone calls
so there isn't a photo of the 2 of us together
so to solve that problem I get individual photos of us
I cut them out and put them on the page
so that it sorta looks like we are in a photo together
colour not a problem
it has to be purple and mauve as they are colours Sharon loves
must have a butterfly on it
we all know how much Sharon loves butterflies

Get all my bits and pieces
and start putting the page together

It's one of the quickest pages I have ever done
it just came together beautifully
done in less than an hour

I'm real happy with how it turned out





one day my beautiful friend
we will be standing side by side
getting our photo taken



who would have thought a beautiful friendship

like ours would have grown
out of commenting on each others work
in the SM gallery



purples and mauve's are not colours I use very often

but i must say I love how this page has turned out
so soft and pretty



the butterfly came off one of the girls hair ties
nothing is safe in this house when it comes to scrapping

Well I have most likely bored you all by now
so I will wish you all a fab weekend
and let you get on with what ever you are doing

Until next time

luv
