My dear friend, Donna, went to be with the Lord in January. You can bet the pearly gates got even more bling when she got there! Donna adopted me into her family of 12 Stamping Sisters and More after I met her at one of my Stampin’ Up classes. The stamping sisters welcomed me as if I had been with them for the 20 years they have been together! A wonderful group of women who meet monthly to craft and share their lives. For the past five years I have been blessed to spend a week with them on a “crafting, eating, laughing, shopping” retreat each October. The ladies have been making a yearly scrapbook where each woman makes a page for each sister. This year, the focus is our relationship with Donna. A memorial service will be next month for this lovely woman who touched thousands of people in her life. We all are making an extra page to be put in a book for her husband. I am attaching a letter to Donna on the back.
I used the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits along with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch to make my page. Although, Donna called me Sweet Pea, I put a Sweet Bee on my page:) In the spirit of my friend, the bee was a glitter bee! This lady had rhinestones everywhere- on her glasses, her cane, her shoes, if you stopped moving, she would bling you up! Now, I am not a scrapbooker, I am a cardmaker who works on a canvas of 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ so making an 8″ x 8″ page was an accomplishment for me! My hat is off to you 12″ x 12″ scrapbookers! I mean, I hail you!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
