Making me smile this week

Three wonderful, scrappy friends have brought huge smiles to my face this week. All three times were unexpected and all the more lovely for that.

I want to take the chance here to say THANK YOU to all of them - each of you made my day!

First off, I received this

in the mail from Deb! I had ogled coveted admired it on her blog (here) last week and was just in love with it. It was inspired by the Elvis song Blue Christmas (one of my Christmas faves) and features sparkle and snowflakes - what could be better? When I realised what was in the envelope, a huge grin appeared and it totally made my day. Deb - thanks for being such a sweetie and for thinking of me. I am still thrilled - the card is here next to my computer and I keep looking at it. It's gorgeous.

Recently, I received blog contact from one of my LOAD friends, Danielle and her blog (here) was duly put onto my "follow" list. You have to check out her blog - she has loads of scrapping and creative goodness on there and is currently posting some simple tutorials for very sweet projects. She was celebrating her 100th post - CONGRATS Danielle! - and had a giveaway. And I won! I was so pleased and can't wait to see my prize in the mail - MemoryWorks Simple Stories Life Documented Scrapbook Kit. A compact kit to document a whole year of memories! How cool is that?!? 

Thanks so much to Danielle (and to MemoryWorks) for such a lovely giveaway

Today, there was just one card in my mailbox - all the way from sunny California! Another LOADster but originally, we "met" through the 12 on 12 challenge and Cathy is also very active in BPC classes, so we often find ourselves on the same course. I love her scrapbook style - she has such a wonderful eye for product combinations and her layouts are always so lovely to look at and her subjects are so interesting too. We are both participating in a Christmas card swap as part of the Nic H class "Colour! or is it Color?" and she sent me a card too! Thanks Cathy if you are reading this! I absolutely adore my card. So pretty and using BG - how could I resist?

I feel very grateful for the friends I have made over the last couple of years through scrapbooking. They really keep me going when I am feeling a bit down. And they never fail to bring on a smile. 

Thanks girls!


  1. Yeah, Congrats Lisa! I have been eyeballing ScrapWorks products lately. I'm sure you will love it! Can't wait to see what you create!

  2. Scrappy friends are the best! :)

  3. Look at all that scrappy goodness! Those cards are absolutely lovely and I mailed the kit on Monday so you should receive it very soon. Congratulations on all your unexpected smiles :)

  4. I received your card on Friday. I love it! And thank you for the tag wrapped in pretty bakers twine and the glittered snowflake. Certainly put a smile on my face.It's just beginning to look like Christmas at our house. We picked up a tree today so the livingroom smells wonderful. I was ill for 2 weeks and am finally starting to feel like a human again. I love the holiday feel your blog has. Mine is poorly neglected. Not my forte.Have a very merry Christmas and see you at 211.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
