the story behind 'friendship blanket'

Our twin friends (and also masters of ceremony at our wedding) arranged something very special to give to us on our weddingday... Before the wedding they asked our family and friends to send in a 8x8 piece of fabric that symbolises their specific relationship with us. They stitched them all to a large blanket. Along with it they made a book and on each page there was a tiny piece of fabric with a story or a sweet message for that familymember or friend. It contains the sweetest, the funniest and most heartwarming wishes and story's that will never be forgotten. It is without a doubt the most beautiful gift anybody could have given us! At the time suddenly there was the sound of the piano playing and two other friends started singing a song they had written themselves about us and the blanket, it still gives me goosebumps, so beautiful. So when Jo-Anne's fabric dare came along it was the perfect chance to scrap about this! The 30x30 background is a piece of soft suede and the chipboard letters are from Provocraft and have a velvetty kind of layer on them. Others are random pieces of fabric and the chipboard is Fancy Pants. The ribbons are by Making Memories. Thanks for reading and don't miss the next Dutch Dare on wednesday sep 12th! Oh and... it's Danielle's birthday today, would be fun if you go over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday... luv, Mandy
