The love supreme

5.7.07

...if Im not around...

its because I'm in TASMANIA!!
Yes...leaving in the morning.... looking forward to it sooo much.... a little worried about the rough weather forecast and the boat trip...but I'm armed with travel sickness meds and spew bags...so we should be right...lol

I am going to take "one billion"photos... and visit my Papa who is 93....and sight see...and eat...and just be merry! (...and I hope Brent and Alex do a super job of house sitting for me...eeek...Im sure they will...lol)
anyway....
It has been a HUGE week for me..... first the Scrapboxx DT news... which Im superduperly excited about (and thanks for all the lovely comments and congrats)...

...then it was my birthday!!
I had a wonderful day.... I felt very spoilt.... very loved...and got lots of emails....texts.... phone calls... cards... and a couple of very special and totally unexpected presents...

like this one....from my dear friend Janelle...

which contained this.... and is so beautiful.... I didn't photograph it too well though...because it also contained a bunch of the most gorgeous ribbons.....

... and then when I was feeling more spoilt than ever.... I got the shock of my life!! The very beautiful...but incredibly sneaky in the nicest possible way Miss Jane arranged a HUGE surprise for me.... you see...at Christmas time.... Janelle made me an absolutely sweetie little patchwork bag...and inside was a chipboard album.... I right away decided I would like it to be a friendship album.... so with Janelle's permission...I created a little felt version for Jane...and mentioned my plans....but life gets busy...and I never did get around to organising my album.... so I hope this explains my absolute shock and joy...when I opened up the package and inside were all these!!

Each and every one is prefect...all totally in the style of the creator...lots of detail.... lots of personality.... I am now so totally motivated to continue with my plan....and I would just love anyone to join in.... I will happily create a page in return... because I want everyone to feel the joy I did when I received it....

So to everyone who took the time to make me a page.........THANKYOU!!...and to Jane...who organised and coordinated the surprise...... THANKYOU SO MUCH...MWAH!!

Well...its late...and I need to be up early ..... I'm going to miss you all something shocking... and Ill have to do an enormous blog round when I get home....

Mwah...Mardi x
