A Special Thank You Gift!

THANK YOU gifts are the focus for this month's blog hop!  This being the first Monday of the month, 30 professional designers (members of CHA Craft & Hobby Association)  have banded together to provide you with some fabulous Thank You gift ideas!  Don't forget to look at others by clicking on the "hop forward" button on the Designer Craft Connection icon to the right of my blog.
 
Forgive my non posting as of late!  We (girlfriend: Debbie Clark, brother: Ugly -Dan Barrett and of course my husband Van, travel over 4000 miles to the green isles:  Ireland.  Landing in Dublin, having some wonderful friends: James Lynch & Angela Chaney greet us at the airport with a huge bouquet of flowers for Deb & I......what a wonderful start to a beautiful vacation.
 
How do you say Thank You to my friends for taking precious time from their daily lives to show us all true Irish hospitality?  I created a special book in which I tucked in snippets of our time together as well as some pictures of their past.  Since Angela hasn't seen the book yet (I had forgotten to pack it when I left home-----thus I was able to really finish it!) I don't want to give too much away.  Here are just a few pages out of this little book full of tuck ins & pull outs.  A simple thank you wasn't enough, so here's a thank you gift straight from the heart. The ribbons haven't been added to the book rings yet.
 
A thankful heart:  James Lynch, The Chaney's--Angela, David, Amy, Damien & Connor,  Alan H., Catherine Duffey, Susan Rafter, and Cathy & Isabella Barron.  Love you all!
