Best Gift Ever!!!

Once upon a time, there was a spoiled girl. 

Her mama loved her so much and wanted to give her a special birthday gift.

Somehow mama contacted the girl's art friends secretly and asked them to help her with a surprise.

She requested that they make a book full of their art. In celebration of the girl's 40th birthday in October. 

Well, her friends, being that they were wonderful friends, set right to work creating stunning creations to wow and wooza the girl!

All the girl's talented friends did their best work.

The book took quite a bit of time to create so the friends sent the book back to mama towards the end of the year.

On Christmas eve mama surprised the unsuspecting girl with a beautiful box.

Inside was this masterpiece created by the loving artistic friends.

The girl just about cried looking at all the pages.  

 Okay, so she cried just a bit but don't tell anyone. It will be our secret.

The book now holds a special place, right on the girl's art desk in her art studio. 

She grabs it often to thumb through for a smile and inspiration.

Now don't you think this girl is the luckiest girl on the planet? She has such a special mama and wonderful friends.

Artists who participated in the surprise:
Kersten - Altered Gypsy

Happy week everyone. May your days be filled with art!
