Thankful For Friends continued... and Deck The Halls Sunday

My Pink Saturday post was going to be much longer but due to either our poor internet connection or my old computer I wasn't able to complete the entire post. Hopefully I will not have any problems today. I'm going to link this new post up with Terri's "Deck The Halls Sunday" blog party at Artful Affirmations. Click here to visit Terri.

My PS post is about a dear friend who lives close by and how she helped us recently. I also wanted to share in that post why I am thankful for several sweet friends who live far away as well. I am thankful for the following ladies because they cheer me on and inspire me with their awesome creativity. Below is the result of their latest inspiration.

Cindy Adkins from Whimsical Musings, one very special dear friend, recently shared one of her tutorials (here) on how to make a Victorian Christmas ornament book. She used images for her book from one of June's collections at Dezinaworld for the pages. June is another one of those sweet far away friends. Visit June here.

I borrowed Cindy's idea for the book and then added my own idea of including pages of Christmas Carols. I used the collection set from Dezinaworld called "Christmas Joy" for the image pages. I created the carol pages using a sheet called "Musical 1" from Dezinaworld for the background of the song lyrics. I selected the carols based on what I felt the images were portraying.

I am also thankful for Terri from Art Affirmations. She is a sweet lady who shares so many wonderful video tutorials on projects and techniques. Click on the link at the top of this post to visit Terri.
