Happy Birthday To The Lovely Dyan Reaveley!

Good morning Everyone!

Join me in wishing the Gorgeous, Talented, Amazing and my Best Friend, Dyan Reaveley a Happy Birthday Today!

Happy Birthday Lady Dy!  YAHOOO!!!!

I met Dyan four or five years ago at CHA.  I was always fascinated by her Whimsical Art and Amazing English Accent.  For some reason I had an Exhibitor Pass to get into CHA while everyone was setting up.  I had passed by the Ranger booth so many times seeing that Red Head at her stand getting ready for the show.  I was, I guess, shy to meet such a superstar... so, I would just pass by and stare..

Finally, about the 8th time I passed by, she looked up at me and said, "Come on Over."  She got the vibe I wanted to meet her...LOL!  I went over and met her and a friendship was struck forever.  Or, at least on my part.  I fell head over heels for this Harrogate Lass.  I'm sure she thought I was just a stalker and I may have been.  I don't know...By the grace of God, we became fast friends.  She has been the trusted and true sounding board and cheerleader that I needed to pursue my career in Paper Crafting.  I will always be grateful to her for that.

I'm just thankful she is in my life and that we invested in red towels and pillow cases...

Here's To You Dyan...May your life be as BIG and CREATIVE as your heart and soul!  I love you!   Happy Birthday Pal!

Thanks for coming by!
