I hope I didn't bore you. But since we are celebrating Ruby's journey, I thought I should walk down memory lane as well and share it with you.
I met Ruby via Instagram and I am super glad I did. She is oh-so-lovely and I can be myself with her, not worrying about what she might think of me♥
Congrats RUBY! I wish you lots of success!

Next stop on the hop is Tracie Pond

Thank you for sharing all of your work... beautiful

Karen @ Misplaced Mojo said...

Beautiful collection of work, and a beautiful comment about Ruby too. We all need friends that we can be ourselves around. In fact, we all need to learn to be ourselves all of the time and stop worrying about what others think, but that is easier said than done! I have figured out that its gets easier to do as you get older. I'm almost 50 and I care far less than I did at 25! By 75, I won't care at all!!! LOL

Kathy Ferguson said...

Thanks for the walk down memory lane. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your beautiful card designs but loved the scrapbook layouts. You don't see many of these posted. I think all of your designs are amazing and you should be proud. Thanks for sharing your time and talent with us.
