Oh, wow, this is gorgeous, Melis!

I know Hannah will treasure this beautiful album. It truly is very special and unique. You now have me craving those cookies--can't wait to see the recipe. I love the positive, uplifting inspiration I get when I go to church. I find it so peaceful and try to give to others although sometimes I fall short. But I keep trying.

What a precious album, Melissa! I just know Hannah will treasure it. You can just see all the love and thoughtfulness that went into it. Thank you for sharing your heart with us today. It is so beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend.


Really lovely. Many of these pages could be lovely cards too.


Oh, what a beautiful treasure... I am sure your new friend will cherish this for years to come, what a lovely way to save her memories!!

If I think of it, I will send you my favourite banana cookie recipe - if I don't, then remind me! They're like little cakes - less dense than banana bread - and I can't resist them!!!


Oh wow Melissa, this is wonderful.Hannah will definately appreciate it.I know i would...


Beautiful Melissa page after page of pure bliss.


pure perfection!! just wonderfl.

Oh Melissa, this album is such a masterpiece.. I can see the love that went into it, and I'm sure Hannah will treasure it always. Although I do not practice any religion, I was raised Catholic and baptized, etc.etc. When my parents divorced, the church told my mother she was no longer welcome as they didn't recognize divorce at the time (don't know if they do now). Anyway, I haven't been to church since then - when I was a kid. I've always thought it would fill a void in my life, and will definitely watch the General Conference online today. Thanks for sharing that with us. *And those scrumptious looking cookies!!!* Hugs


Having been where Hannah is, I know she will love this book. It's a lovely, soft way to treasure her memories. Every time she looks at it she will "return" to a special time.


Could you provide more details on how you constructed the book binding. I know you used a 3 ring binder (Tim Holtz?) but how did you do the cover the back?

You are a beautiful person and inspire me to be a better Christian. Thank you.

This is lovely. So sweet of you to take such care to make it so custom.

Lisa Dolson

Melissa, this is so sweet...precious...kind...heartwarming... Hannah will surely love it as much as the time and love you put in it. I marvel at your talent in putting together something so detailed and extensive while maintaining such cohesiveness. TFS


your loving thoughts and heartfelt feelings pour out of this sweet album Melissa, Hannah will treasure it. Your cookies look yummy ;)

What a beautiful book to keep those precious memories.

Hannah A.

The album is beautiful and I most definitely will treasure it forever. You perfectly captured the love we shared.

I responded to you personally my sweet friend.

I thought Conference was so meaningful...the talks and music filled my living room with such joy. I love when President Monson tells his stories...rolling his eyes!!! Our Prophet does have a sense of humor, doesn't he. Can't wait for the Ensign so I can read it all again...


Acorn may be the initial stairlift manufacturer in the future up with DC powered stairlifts. It features a distinctive modular rail system.
