It's a Collaborative Effort...UPDATED WITH TEMPLATE...

As many of you know, I was welcomed to the Heartfelt Creations design team a few months ago and I have been so overwhelmed with the generosity, the care and the supportive relationships I have built with them.  Linda and Emma Lou are two of the most caring and inspirational people who truly know what it means to Serve the Lord.  Their commitment to Him and his Works has really touched me. 

A little over two months ago, I proposed a little project to be given to the Heartfelt Creations Family as a gesture of Love and Gratitude.  After much chatter online, many of the design team members agreed on a theme "Christmas" and the first Collaborative Book idea was launched.  I created a sketch for everyone to follow as a basis, and was to be the publisher...

Yes, I am the lucky recipient to be the first to touch (and even enjoy a sweet smell from one) and interact with each and every page.  I am the lucky one to compile and bind all the pages into a perfect little book...SO LUCKY!!! 

So to close this post, I'm including photos of all pages and the completed book, as well as a full video of the amazing creation.  

This book has been created with LOVE and GRATITUDE for all the gifts God brings into our lives!!!  Hope you enjoy!
