Happy Birthday Chrissie

Do you have a friend that no matter how long it's been since you've seen them or how far away you are, you can pick up the conversation as if you just talked yesterday?  That's how I feel about my friend, Chrissie.  We were next door neighbors for 8 wonderful years. We shared all those wonderful BFF times that come only when there is trust, respect and love between two good friends.  Times spent giggling when we got caught in a horrible downpour while training for a mini marathon...picking new puppies, one for each of us...encouraging each other during tough, oh yes, the shopping.  Chrissie is the queen of shopping.  I'm a terrible shopper; but Chrissie...she's the best.  She knows just how long to leave a new dress in the closet before she wears it so that when her husband asks she can say, "I've had this thing forever".

Her birthday is the day after Valentine's Day so when I saw this challenge at Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #44 ( OTWC44) and the Make it Monday Go To Sentiment Challenge on Papertrey Ink, I knew immediately what I wanted to create.

Here's Kim's challenge photo:
