A special gift

One of my favourite parts of hosting scrapbooking events is the wonderful people I get to meet and our Crop and Cruise this February was no exception!!

So one of the ladies on the cruise told me she was going to create something for me, but I had no idea it would be this special!!
She made us this beautiful quilt!! It was so cute because she told me she watched what I wore while on the cruise and then selected fabrics based on the colours from my clothing!!
And to make it even more special, she incorporated numerous photos from our trip onto the other side so that we have the memories to last forever!! And the "tag" she used has an extra neat story... one of the photos miraculously transfered to her photo developing receipt from Walmart and it just so happened to be a picture of me!! So she took that as a sign that it was meant to be part of the quilt!! Isn't that the coolest??!!!
So a HUGE thanks to Val for this labour of love... know that it will be treasured and enjoyed for years to come!!! Blessings to you my friend!!

Wow, what an extra special gift!
Doesn't surprise me though, as you
are an extra special person!
I bet you are enjoying the quilt
on such a cold "Spring"weekend.
Thanks for sharing!
