Natural Beauty

I made this layout for a friend I found through this wonderful hobby. I made it using the December kit of Badgirls.



Journaling hidden under photo:
It is amazing how this craft and the internet can bring together two people who live in different corners of the world.


It is amazing to know that true friendship can be found in places you would never think of.

It is amazing how one simple act of kindness from a person could bring courage and inspiration to another.

Alicia you have been an amazing miracle in my life. You gave me a gift of an "angel charm" and at the same time have given me the gift of courage and acceptance. You have been a friend even though we have not yet touched each other's hand. You have lifted me up and encouraged me at times of doubt even though I have not proven myself to you yet. For all these things I am grateful... grateful to have known you ... grateful to have the privelege to call you my friend.

You are a natural beauty... an angel on earth.

Your layout is lovely. More beautiful though, is the sentiments that accompany it. How very sweet of you to put your thoughts together for a special person. I have been thinking wonderful thoughts about a friend who is very far away this evening too, and then stumbled upon your site. Serendipity? Your kindness shines through your layout and words.

Iris you LO is beautiful! And you are accurate in your journaling, I had the pleasure of meeting Alicia this summer and she is a gem! (or being from the south, maybe I should say a peach:) I am glad you are able to be friends, she is a special person to so many of us.
