Lets Celebrate Women

blogged by me domestic goddess On 5/14/2007 05:00:00 PM
Totally inspired by Ali Edwards and Annie for this post.
Yesterday was Mothers Day for our friends over the Atlantic, and reading lots of blogs and forums, got me thinking about my female friends, those I have and those I have no longer. I have met many wonderful and beautiful women in my 37 years, some I no longer have as much contact or no contact due to my ever moving countries and distance. I have many new friends that I have met through the joys of my hobby scrapbooking and the web. I feel very fortunate to have met so many wonderful women. Lee Woodside did a project for Lime Tart celebrating this very thing and I was very honoured to be part of her book. When I checked out Annie's blog and Pencil Lines there was a layout featuring me, I was completely choked by this. So this has got me thinking creatively about our special friendships with our female friends. This is a layout I showed a sneak peak off the other day, here it is in full. A layout dedicated to my friendship with 2 very special people I met through scrapbooking.

The journaling reads :
True friendship is hard to come by
These two women have become
Scrapping buddies through
the joys of the web, but in the
past 18 months have become
so much more........
Sue and Annie are true friends
Whom I cherish

This week I am going to pour my creative energies into dedicating my scrapbooking to the women in my life.
I would love you all to join me in celebrating and scrapping the women in your life, whether they be real women you have met or women that have inspired you.
I love seeing every ones work so please feel free to leave me a link to your artwork. I am sure I can RAK a box of goodies on Sunday to my favourite layout.
Here's a little video that will inspire you to celebrate REAL women

Lets Celebrate and be Creative

    You or your fellow bloggers may be interested in promoting THE ENGLISH FESTIVALS by Laurence Whistler - it's a beautifully crafted book with tons of unexpected information about all our British celebrations that have survived centuries. A wonderful gift for Mother's Day, Christmas or just a special book to keep around the house.

    Please get back to us.

    Many thanks
