My Childhood Friend...

 My childhood friend contacted me through Facebookand our friendship picked up right where we left off. We had so much in common as kids, it is the same now. Both of us avid crafters, I knew I wanted to make her something special for her birthday this year.

 Thinking that she might like some Mary Engelbreit inspiration in her craft room I put together this little book on a ring for her. I used some Mary Engelbreit graphics and some quotes that had been featured in her magazine, Home Companion, printed them up and attached them to some chipboard coasters I had.
I layered up some paper, added some buttons and ribbon to finish it off. I then punched a hole through each coaster and threaded them on an extra large key ring. Tied ribbon on the key ring and it is all ready to go on a hook! I personalized it by adding my favorite childhood nickname for her on the back.
  I am so happy to be in touch again and sharing our crafting adventures, friendship and birthdays!!
