The Cats out of the Bag!!!!!

Birthday Book!!!


So my dear friend Maija turned 50 this month.

I wanted to do something special for her.

I asked a bunch of our friends to make a 8 x 11 journal page. Filled with reasons why they love Maija, and a picture of they had one.

I have been collecting these for months.

Here's the book.

Thanks to all our wonderful friends
who participated in this 
Book of LOVE!!!

There are several girls who didn't meet the deadline.
They will be mailing there pages directly to Maija!!!

Maija can post those as they come in.

Woo Hoo!!!

Love you Maija!!!
