Making new friends has been one of the most amazing gifts that blogging has given me. Truly.
The encouragement, commonality, inspiration and warmth that I have found out in Blogland has been more than I could have wished for.
I have also loved getting to be a part of the journeys of these new friends. Traveling the roads of marriage, parenthood, homemaking and calling (just to name a few!) together.
Courtney Walsh is one such amazing, creative, intelligent, and encouraging friend.
And I have been honored to be in on her her journey of publishing. It has been so great to have a pal going through (though a little further ahead) some of the same emotions and questions that my publishing journey has had.
I am so excited to celebrate Courtney's latest work of creative exuberance and talent (and I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy!)

This is Courtney's book and it combines so many of her favorite things...friendship, the beach, scrap-booking.
As she says "The story of Sweethaven centers around a faded scrapbook...one that's full of secrets and stories of years gone by..."
To celebrate her wonderful new accomplishment Courtney is celebrating with a scrapbooking themed giveaway.
You would not believe ALL the goodies she is giving away to celebrate this major accomplishment!
(Can you tell that I am so proud of my girl I could just bust??!!)
To join in the launch party and see for yourself all that she is giving away you will have to go and visit her blog yourself.
And remember to wish her the best of luck!
