The Splendid Book for Girls

I received the most splendid package in the mail recently.
A package from one of the sweetest artists, bloggers, people I know;
I was so surprised when I opened the box and found this...
a journal cover she had created.
 
 
She used an old book as the base...
The Splendid Book for Girls.
At first I was reluctant to punch holes into the spine for binding,
but I finally did, as the only thing that felt right was to keep the book whole.
 
 
It truly could not be anymore perfect;
the heart {she was supposed to just be sending me some heart shaped rocks, which are amazing in their own right!},the postcard from Scotland she chose to collage onto it, the colors used, the butterflies and the words.
Oh the words.  The message the chose for me... well...
 
 
But the most wonderful and amazing thing about it is, Monica went out of her way for no reason at all other than the kindness and love in her heart to create this piece of art for me.
Life is such a beautiful place to be.
