Decorate To Celebrate Prize!

Hello Ladies,

Recently I entered Decorate to Celebrates 4th of July Contest.  I won!  To see that post click here.

So my friend Rhonda at Scrap Happens With Rhonda sent me an e-mail and asked me what kind of hand-made album I would like.  I told her my soon to be future daughter in law was traveling this summer so a travel album would be nice.  Well it arrived today!  My daughter in law isn't getting this album!  It is soooo gorgeous!  I love it!  I love handmade things so much.  I have reached the age in life where if I want something, I can pretty much buy it for myself, so when I receive something handmade, it means so much to me.  I have always wanted someone to make me a nautical quilt.  I have hinted and hinted to all my friends that can quilt..sigh...still don't have one...but hey, I turn 55 in September...who knows...anyway back to this album.  My husband & I will celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary on September 24th.  We are going to go somewhere special.  I think I will save this album for that trip.

Look, the back has a place where you can write notes!!!!  Isn't that adorable!  Thank you, thank you, thank you Rhonda!  I love it so much!

Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate all of your comments!
