Diane, I Love This!


I received the sweetest gift from my dear blog friend, Diane. Diane blogs at Lavender Dreams.  I was so surprised and blessed to receive this beautiful little book that she made!


Diane included a little note about this book.  She even chose one of the cards that I had made a long time ago that she had saved to be the first page of the book.  I am so touched that she saved the card.


I loved each and every page ~ so beautiful and the vellum sheets added such a delicate touch.


Aren't the illustrations perfect?!


Diane even included some pages at the back of the book for writing down thoughts and ideas.

I absolutely love my book, Diane.  Thank you so much.  I am so blessed with your friendship.

    1. It absolutely is, Connie. I don't know how she made it. I'd love to make something similar. Maybe she will post a tutorial.
