Surprise, Surprise, Surprise For My Friends


Ok, so here is the surprise. The first pic is an art journal page I did on the 4th of July in 2006. I had seen on a blog somewhere that the person had made grids and journaled in each square. So I copied that idea and made the first page.
Then last week I met my new art journal friend, Cheryl that I told you about in an earlier post, and when she looked through my journal and turned to that spread, she got very excited and really liked it, sooooo, I decided to recreate journaling in grids again and created one page of the spread and dedicated it to Cheryl and the other page I dedicated to my art friend Lotus. So Suprise, ladies!!!!!!
I certainly hope you like your pages. They are just a thank you for being there and helping me along the way. I know, Cheryl, I just met you, but I know you will inspire me in the future.
I didn't want to make the same size grids this time, so I switched them up to different sizes. I had a ton of fun making these, and it only took me Saturday, Sunday and tonight to finish them. WOW!!
So in the great words of Gomer Pyle, "Surprise, Suprise, Surprise!!! Hee Hee!!

Sharon, I am stunned and honored you would devote a whole page to me. It's beautiful. I can hardly wait to see it in person. And I love the grid too. What fun!
