The Power of Forgiveness

While my blogging hiatus continues, I do feel that it is important to breach it one last time to share one of the layouts I have created as of late. Because of the inspiration, among other things, that I felt to create it, I also felt compelled to put it out there as well. Done in my gawd-awful handwriting, I felt it was more important to use that than the computer as it is more from-the-heart and personal than the other way. It is not the greatest of creations nor is it the greatest of representations but I think - - - I hope - - - it is the greatest representation of how I am feeling.

I *heart* my Secret Sistah!

I belong to an awesome messageboard called Bad Girls. (yes girls, even though I lurk, I am still there ... lol) where a Secret Sister's Swap was organized. As you can see by the pictures, my sister totally OUTDID herself:
  • 24 pcs of patterened paper and cardstock
  • Maya Road sheer scroll frame album
  • Thickers foam letters
  • Amy Butler Glitter Rub-obs & Gems
  • Bling word & scrolls
  • Making Memories mini shimmer alphas
  • Felt Flowers
  • Chipboard album
  • 5 rolls of satin cord
  • SU! embossing powder
  • A mini beach scene canvas to paint
  • and much, much more.

One element of the swap was handmade items. Look at all these goodies. Embroidered sayings and gorgeous flowers, hatpins ... oooohhhh the hatpins! I can't wait to get home and dig in!! (Did I mention that I am doing respite work today with a former student and we went for a drive to kill some time. I stopped by the post office, got my box of scrapping goodness, and opened it right there on the front seat ..... then I got in the van! lol)

I love it all, my Secret Sistah. You made my day.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

(PS - I now return to my hiatus status. This one was for you, cherie. I hope you had a happy read, St├ęph! teheehee)
