Happy Friends

I have joined in with the fabulous January challenge at Orange Paperie & Co for the first time...
the challenge is about FRIENDS
So I scrapped my page about meeting my amazingly Shazza through a blog, & then meeting in real life...& we are great friends!
I loved using this Pink Paislee pp, stamping & gathering a bunch of pretty flowers together as well.
