Gina's Tea Tapes - Happy Birthday Gina!

If you RIGHT CLICK on the download link, and choose the option "Open in New Window" you won't be taken away from my blog entry, rather you will be able to download the element and still read today's entry.

Today's tapes are created to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a very dear friend of mine, Gina. Gina and I met online, thru some scrapping sites and we've walked the journey of our lives together for the past couple of years. A highlight in my life was meeting you in person, Gina - you're amazing and I welcome the opportunity to honour you today. May God bless this day for you!

Gina - I thought of making some geocaching tapes... but thats as far as I got with that... there is virtually NO images associated with it... so I defaulted to your passion, tea.

Won't you all leave some love for this special friend of mine to make her day sparkle, please? You can find Gina's blog HERE - her blog is a great read, besides.
