An Album for a friend.

What do you do when a friend gets more bad news??? How do you actually make them feel better? We all say the same ole "If you need me, just call, if you want some time out, give me a ring and we'll meet for a coffee or come over", but who ever really takes you up on those offers? Even though you totally 100% mean it and it comes from the bottom of your heart.

Well I have a friend who is doing it rather rough of late. Her partner lost his mother late last year, only to then rush her own mother to hospital on Christmas day, with brain surgery two days later with a brain tumour. On FridayI learnt that the prognosis has not been good, and my heart goes out to my friend, not sure how I can really help except the same ole if you need me I am always there. So I started to rack my brain for that little bit extra. My friend dabbles in cards but thats where it ends. So I thought what if I make her an album, that she can put her fav pics of her mum in and journal about those pics. A keepsake, a momento, that she can have forever. So this has been my mission over ther weekend, and to also make a matching card of course. All the products are from Kaisercraft, the album, the papers, the bling, the stamps, except the ribbons. My LSS supplies all of Kaisers stuff and these papers so have to be my fav papers at the moment, I loved working with them and I just love the finished product. I can't wait to give it to her on Thursday when I go into work....

Here is my gift and card....

My special album


My "someone special" card.
I put my heart and soul into making this album so that my friend has a beautiful momento to keep of her mother forever. I just absolutely love how the album and card has turned out and I am very proud of it, as I am sure my friend will be... Today has been a great day!

Love Lisxx
