Birthday Fun Journal

My sister, Ginny, had a birthday this week.   In our family, we get and give presents when we find them, even if it's not a birthday.  Through the year I collect presents to give, but when the day finally arrives, I can't find where I've stored them.....(much like my craft supplies, hmmm).   So, the night before our birthday breakfast, I was forced to come up with a last minute gift, until the time I clean something out and find the "real" birthday present.   I finished this little journal well before midnight.   The color is actually a very nice yellow....this doesn't show as well, for some reason.....maybe the room lighting.
And I found some cute stickers to add to the signature covers.
And the last page:
Inside the front page I added this, because Ginny is the one I turn to when I need a listening ear, and a completely supportive comment, and always the perfectly right thing I want to hear, as well as what I need to hear.   She's the best.
Happy First Birthday Present of the year, Ginny.   May you have many, many more, with love.

Did you write "She Who I Lean On"? It's really nice. Also, the journal is a real treasure.
