Great Friends Think Alike!!!

From the time Teresa moved to Crescent City in the fifth grade until high school graduation, we were practically inseparable!  We lived only blocks apart and did just about everything together!  As we grew older, college, family moves, marriages, children, etc. kept us from keeping in touch as we would have liked.  But through the miracles of Facebook and a class reunion last August, we reconnected and found that that bond we had forged all those years ago was still strong!!  We even found out that we were both scrapbookers!

Teresa and her hubby came through Palatka in May, a few days before my birthday for a wonderful, but all too brief visit on their way to a cruise vacay.  I had made a layout for her -- entitled Besties!
Supplies from Flamingo Scraps -- Lily Bee This and That collection paper and stickers; American Crafts Thickers; Tim Holtz Distress Ink;  Other Supplies -- vintage book pages, wooden button, embroidery floss, Sizzix die.
Inspired by a Becky Fleck Page Map sketch, the layout had pictures of us together at our High School Graduation and at Homecoming our senior year, along with a picture of us taken in the Flamingo Scraps storeroom last August!

Lo and Behold!!!  Teresa handed me a birthday gift and said, "you are not going to believe this!"  I opened it and tears came to my eyes!!!!

There we were -- the same picture from August and a picture of us when we were cheerleaders together our senior year!!!  She had even used some supplies she had gotten at Flamingo Scraps!!!!!

The This and That sticker on my layout reads "good friends are like stars, you don't always see them, but you know they're always there."  The journaling on Teresa's LO reads "a touchstone for my soul, a bridge across time, beautiful friend of my heart, I'm so grateful for you, days fly, months become years, and through them all, your friendship is with me."

I am blessed!!!
