A Birthday Surprise!

I am SO excited that today is finally here. I started working on this project almost 2 months ago. Shortly after I started my blog I got a message from someone named Melanie, who just happens to also be friends with my friend Delia. She told me of a plot to surprise Delia for her 40th birthday (which happens to be tomorrow). She asked me to make a 2 page 12x12 layout as part of the surprise. Delia is the best scrapper that I personally know and let me tell you, I was NERVOUS! I spent many nights laying in bed trying to think of themes/layouts/colors/etc...
When I finally decided on layout and colors I nervously started getting my stuff together.
As my ideas started to flow, I got pretty excited about these pages. I searched this entire town on multiple occasions looking for exactly the perfect pieces and I think in the end it turned out terrific. Those of you who know me well, know that I seldom think anything I make is terrific but I LOVED these pages when they were done. I honestly think they are the best pages I have ever scrapped...EVER. I am so thrilled that they turned out so well, especially since they were going to such a special person. To go along with this surprise I so wanted to make the drive to New York for her surprise party (which is scheduled to start in less than 10 minutes from now), but Tom was too nervous about me making a 15 hour drive by myself (I think he was really just nervous about fending for himself with the kids for a few days). As a consolation I will hopefully be getting a call from Melanie (from the party scene) so I at least get to wish Delia a Happy Birthday from Wisconsin.

So without further ado...

Here is a close-up of the flowers I added.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY DELIA!!!!!!
