My dear friend, Diane, lost her battle with cancer this year. She was such a sweet woman and she fought a good fight. She is dearly missed by her family and friends. Diane loved paper crafts. Well, actually, I think she really loved acquiring paper crafting items (I think she had one of everything) and organizing it all. She was constantly looking for new ways to organize all her great crafty finds. She had all her goodies cataloged and organized. Not an easy thing to do, as any scrapbooker will tell you.
This desk organizer was hers. It was plain white when I got it. I knew I wanted to alter it in some way. I thought hard over what papers to pick and what colors to go with. Finally, I decided to go with this lovely paper pack from Basic Grey. Diane's favorite color was purple. I knew I wanted to do something to remember her by... and the purple floral paper pack was perfect. (say that 3x fast. hehehe) I love how it turned out, and I'm sure Diane would approve.
