We got back to Kansas City from two days in St Louis  Tuesday afternoon and there was a big box I could see on the front porch.     It was a delivery from a few hours earlier from Pro Flowers.
What a surprise when I opened it to see 2 dozen roses from my best friend all the way from NY.
Also her cousin that I have been visiting now for several years.   Deb comes into St. Louis from NYC a couple of times a year to her cousins home and I meet them there for some girl time, along with other friends we have added over the years.     The reason for the flowers is I'm the first of the group to reach the grand old age of Medicare and 65 (which we all joke about)  and I also had cataract surgery two days after my birthday on the 6th.   So to throw me off and totally surprise me they waited a week to send these to me.    Looks like next planned trip hopefully in May I'll be treating them to dinner for this awesome surprise.     Neither of them scrapbook but I'm slowly trying to work them into it.   We did make some cards last trip.   So I'll take this layout with me next time to see if I can get them addicted to the hobby too.

For this layout I used the sketch from April 1st from  "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"    It worked out great to be able to include the card that was with the flowers.

I also did the challenge at "THE SCRAPROOM"   to use at least 3 piece of wood on your project and I used 5.
