THE LOVE HYMNAL

  

 When I received my dear sweet friend Lisa's journal in the mail, there was no question in my mind what I was going to create on her pages. It would be Turquoise (the color she chose for each artist to work in), and it had to be something Frida or Mary. I went with Mary. 

                               "It all begins with "Your Story"

 I know how Lisa likes doors and windows and pathways, so I began her journal journey pages with a door......


                          A scared space is important







 I love adding dangling things......

                              Mornings with Mary 
                             "It's Okay not to be Ok"

       So blessed for all those that re-kindle my inner spirit ~*

I added a pocket for the two tags I made. I only intended on making one, but I found this  old paper fan I had in my stash after I made the first tag and I just had to go with it.


    I made this tag from a vintage primary reading card, the back side is the last picture shown.

                                       
"It is BLUE, It is TURQUOISE, It is INSPIRING, It is INFECTIOUS, 
IT IS PRITI" 
(For Lisa Priti)

    All ready to mail to Stephanie with brass prayer bells on !

  6. Hi Kim♥
    I was peeking through my fingers at these
    pages you made just for me...
    I wanted to take them in slowly
    and then I looked with both eyes...
    and in a few months they will be MINE all mine!
    I can't tell you how much I love them
    already...just imagine the biggest joy
    and times it by a quillion.
    ♥♥♥
