Surprise!!


I was recently surprised with a "care package" in the mail from my oldest son. I had fun creating a journal page to help remember this wonderful surprise. The page includes a 'surprise' in that the box top opens to reveal a fold-out mini-note representation of a handwritten note that was inside the boxI transcribed part of my son's handwritten note onto the mini-note and attached it as a foldout under the top of the box. Tracing paper was used for the mini-note to avoid too much bulk.

What a treat!!!!!

What a wonderful, artistically beautiful way to preserve a special gift and a special moment.

You're blessed with such a thoughtful son.... and he's blessed with such a thoughtful (and talented) Mom.
