My First Pocket Pal Letter

Hello, everyone!!! I hope that your week is going well and that soon you will be enjoying a marvelous weekend!! We have had rain all week so sunshine would be a real treat!!

I guess with this posting I will have joined the latest craze in the papercrafting world---Pocket Pal Letters!!! It seems that they are EVERYWHERE!!! So here is my very first Pocket Pal Letter....

This is the front of my letter made to reciprocate a letter I received from Traci Savely...and admittedly I didn't know where to begin...hahaha  I have used papers from the Tilda Country Escape Paper Pad and used an 18 pocket page...9 on the front and 9 on the back. Each of the pockets has a small gift for the recipient. There are many instructions and examples over on You Tube for this phenomenon!! You can see on the spine, I have also used a resin flower, tiny bottles filled with fairy dust, and a pink bead charm. And here is the backside....

You can see that I have placed some tiny pearl embellies in the two diagonal pockets but the other pockets will remain a surprise until the recipient receives the letter.

Thank you so much for coming by and I hope to see you again real soon!! Until the next time, I send big hugs!!

Winner and Update!!

Happy Day to everyone!!! I can't believe that I haven't posted in one entire month and, believe me, it was not by choice. I have been totally out of commission!! I have had some pinched nerves in my left shoulder stemming from the neck vertebrae and have been unable to even use the computer. I have been going to physical therapy 3 times a week for the past several weeks and today is the first time I have really noticed a difference---anything but surgery!!!! But anyway, I have decided the Golden Years are not so golden after all!!! But it is nice to be back and to finally try to catch up!!
