Special Project

I am one of those people who don't take friendships lightly. I have a core group of friends that mean the world to me. Each of them, in their own special way, have helped me become the person I am today. I've been with all of them for years, some since kindergarten! I been with them to see their family's grow and change and am impressed with all their success's in so many different ways.

A couple of weekends ago, I was blessed enough to be here when my beautiful Goddaughter made her first communion. It was alot of work leading up to the actual event and party, however it was SO worth it! These are memories I will hold dear to my heart until the day I pass.

During the party, We had a wonderful opportunity to take a group shot of my close girlfriends. Well I bought a shadow box and used all my lovley scrapbooking supplies and dressed it up to make it extra special. It took a couple of days to complete from start to finish but it was well worth it! It now has a spot of honor on my cupboard in my living room so I can look at it everyday!

Here's a pic:

I am on the left, then it's dear Debbie, then marvelous Missy, Lovely Liz, and finally magnificent Melanie! These woman mean the world to me! They allow me to be myself and they still love me anyways! I don't know what I ever did to deserve them. They are my touchstone!

I have a small wood plaque that I am going to make my next project, but am looking for some ideas. I have scrapbooking supplies out the ying/yang but am at a creative block. Any one have any ideas? My house has a cottage feel to it...any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Here is a pic of it:

Well, that is all from me tonight. I hope all is well with everyone out there in cyber-space and look forward to all your ideas!
