Since the theme for the weekend nis friends, I've deciced to share a layout I did for one of my BFF's. Holly and I were roommates in college, and friends for years afterward. One of my fondest memories of her, and college, was reading the Lord of the Rings trilogogy outloud to each other. We didn't have television in our dorm room, and this was grand entertainment!



I am so glad that you hopped my way! The next stop on this blog hop is: Patty

Hi Ann! I've "talked" to you several times but I'm so glad to put a face to the name and your blog is absolutely delightful! Love this layout... especially the really neat letters and lace... special touches that really make a page. Loved your memories of your college days too! When I went to college (eons ago) my roomie was my hubby and I'm still lovin my college roomate 38+ years later! :) Anyway... thanks so much for putting this all together! It was an enormous project I'm sure, but God will richly bless through it! May you be blessed for all the efforts you put into it! Thanks for shining the light!

Ann, what an amazing hop and your own project is wonderful. Took me back to my own college days! Hadn't thought of my roomie for awhile. Loved the vintage look of it.

Can't tell you what a joy it was to be a part of the blog hop and to get to meet so many sisters in faith while enjoying wonderful works of art. Thank you for putting it together. Can't imagine how much work and coordination it took, right down to the last moment, do doubt! It was wonderful!! From my vantage point, there wasn't a hitch! Thanks again...I hope you'll do it again!
