 On to my pieces made for the hop.
my sheet is "The Art of Friendship" so I thought what not a better way to use this than to create a friendship book for my dear friend Sherie!
 These are my pages...
a bit of humor added with mini me's and something very fishy going on...heeheee
True friends...
this friendship quote is so true...
and yes,she does sparkle!
Love you Sherie
❤❤❤
another piece I made using the same Friendship sheet-
getting into the holiday spirit!
 and one more


Thanks so much for your visit-hope you have enjoyed your stay and will leave a comment or visit again soon! 
hugs,Jackie

ArtyDiva said...

...Yes, I am truly blessed! This is a beautiful reminder of what Jackie and I share. I have it right in front of me at work, so I can look at it daily. She has touched my heart and life in many special, endless ways. Artistically speaking, she is my true inspiration. Sharing the common bond of creating in all sense of the word. Which means "collecting" treasures too. We are on the same page, which tickles me. I glow when I'm with her, Riley, and my Chumski at my Zen home in New York. Thank you Jackie dahlink, for all you are to me! <3
