Sunshine…..!!!!! ----- YELLOW BLOG HOP

WELCOME to a blog hop!

I thought I would start this post with a little story behind the creation of this layout…

..As some of you know, I recently underwent neurosurgery twice in the past 3 months, and whilst I was in hospital and recovering at home, unbeknowns to me, the lovely and caring scrapbooking community that I have befriended both online and IRL, came together.

They put their love, thoughts and prayers together in the form of “A Box of Sunshine”…where the girls sent Kayla bits of scrapping, handmade items, ‘smellies’, jewellery and several cards, not to mention the huge amount collected for vouchers for me to spend at various stores around Australia.

So this post is not only a blog hop, but also a HUGE thank you to everyone involved in my ‘Box of Sunshine’…and here is a layout I created with several of the items I received

Here are a couple of photos of the day I received the package
