Surprise, surprise!!

A little while ago we, the Alliance girls, decided that our "founder" and good friend Anita needed and deserved a lift up! She's not having such a great time since her sister Joanne past away last december so she sure could use some cheering up!
Yesterday morning we (Bonnette, Corinne, Danielle, Flo, Jo-Anne and me) showed up on her doorstep. She had no idea we were coming but her hubby was our partner in crime :) We brought everything we needed for a wonderful day: food, delicious carrot cake (thanks Rutger!) drinks, candy, flowers, presents and scrapbooking supplies... And a wonderful day it was! Anita was in shock the first few minutes, I think she didn't really realise what was happening, couldn't believe what was happening, but after a while you could tell that she was truly enjoying everything! We all had such a great day and I'm already looking forward to the next time we'll meet!

Today I felt sooo creative, don't know why... maybe it was the inspiring day with those girls that are all so talented, the talks we had, the laughs... or maybe it's those beautiful kits I received this weekend to work with... Whatever it was it was good, because I finished 4 of the 6 projects I have to untill the end of the week! WOW, that feels good!
Hope you all have a great week ahead!
Birgit

Dear Birgit,

After a long absentism from the wide expanse of the net, I'm back to at least catch up on the blogs I love.

I think it's a really beautiful thing you guys did for Anita; a sign of true friendship. I hope you will create one of your fabulous layouts with the picture(s) taken.

Have a good week.

Sophie
