A Surprise from a Friend!


I met Marlynn a few years ago on the PaperWhimsy forum. We had a lot of fun together in swaps and challenges. I connected with her initially because I was so inspired by her art, that I messaged her to tell her so. Well, she warmly wrote back and since then we learned we had some things in common. Even though we have never met, she is a very dear friend!

Look at the amazing coloring and the layering details!


Yesterday a package arrived, and I was puzzled as I was not expecting anything....to my great surprise it was a book made by Marlynn for me! I knew she was making this book as she was sharing bits of it now and then on her blog "Honeysuckle Breeze". But I never guessed it was for me! Boy am I lucky!

I love all the laces on the light page, facing the darker side...so coool!

Beautiful imagery.

Here is a portion of the fabulous back page.

Marlynn really touched my heart with this gift. There are messages on each page that only I can see. Heartwarming and loving.

Thank you so much Marlynn! You have blessed me richly with your thoughtfulness and generosity!

Thank you all so much for stopping by today!
I really appreciate your visit.
Hugs,
Terri
