I was asked to take part in creating a scrapbook page relating to friendships in honor of the adorable Courtney Walsh's book that was just published... A Sweethaven Summer! YES, Courtney is the author. Super cool yeah? Here's the cover:
A faded scrapbook reveals secrets that reconnect old friends in a place called Sweethaven.
Campbell Carter has come to Sweethaven in search of answers about her mother's history. Just before losing a battle with cancer, Suzanne Carter sent letters to childhood friends from her hometown of Sweethaven, Michigan. Suzanne's three friends — Lila, Jane, and Meghan — haven't spoken in years, yet each has pieces of a scrapbook they made together as girls. Suzanne's letters have lured them all back to the idyllic lakeside town, where they meet Campbell and begin to remember what was so special about their long Sweethaven summers. As the scrapbook reveals secrets from the past, old wounds are mended, lives are changed, and friendships are restored — just as Suzanne intended.
Here's the scrapbook page I created relating to friendships and Courtney's book. It's a photo of Leslie Ashe and I that we took when I went to visit her in Texas last month. We've known each other for 6 years and had met through scrapbooking. :) We've had our stalls in communication, but we always come back to our friendship. I hadn't seen her in years when I had gone to Texas, but the second I saw her it was like we just saw each other the day before. So crazy and friendships like that are far and few between! ESPECIALLY in female friendships. I'm happy and so lucky to have her and she's there for me whenever I need her! I just wish we lived closer than a plane ride away.
