Thanx Kim...What a wonderful thing to wake up to....

Kim passed me this wonderful award that really touched my heart....I have made so many friends through scrapping and blogging....The reason for this award speaks to my heart and I am so blessed to have Kim share it with me.

This award is given to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These bloggers are not interested in increasing their own status, but rather aim to find friends and be friends. The hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are born!

Now I have the pleasure of passing to 5 others....

To all of you...you have touched me....I appreciate you....you all scrap so much for the love inside and it is clear you want generations to know and love your family the way you do....you have all been a blessing....

Brenda...I remember how encouraging and wonderfully supportive you were to me from my very first post on the cricut mb....if it were not for your encouragement I may not have even begun to blog...you truly scrap from the heart....

Sandi....I feel like I know you...you too have given me so much encouragement right from the start...your heart is so big I can just feel the love overflowing from it...I think we are distant relatives....LOL...your layouts always have a family theme and I love to see the photos you share along with your talent...they give me a true since of family and bring a smile to my face...or maybe even a tear to my eye...

Nanne....Your work inspired me right from the start...I always loved and still love looking for your latest creation...you scrap for your family and the love for them is so clear in each layout....we shared an email that talked about the very thing this award is about...the connections we've made and how we scrap for our families and not recognition....your humor is always present and brings warmth and love to all....I would like to say you are my twin...but alas you are way too young...LOL....

Leah...you feel like my little sis....so full of love for your babies and always such a fun attitude...you too scrap for the love of your family and truly work on being a real blogging friend...you add such personal touches to your comments...usually surrounding the love of your family....I love to read about you antics as it reminds me so much of the days when my babies were young...thanx for that.....

Diane....you always scrap such wonderful events....travels and moments....you have built me up from the start....always telling me how wonderful I am....thanx for that...we all need a Benjamin and you truly have the heart of one...you scrap your family with the art of true love....

I have to say this is one of my fav awards....it is so true that I'm blessed to have made these wonderful connections...thanx for appreciating me and encouraging me....wish I could pass to more....these five have been so special because they have been a part of my scrapping from the beginning...but each of you mean so much to me....the comments and love you give are truly appreciated....I love all of you out there in blog land and appreciate your friendship and support more than words could ever say...thanx to each of you for that.


  1. Ok..now maybe I read this too early in the morning after another night of no sleep..or maybe your just too good with words but...THE TEARS! Dang it woman! You've got me crying! What a beautiful award and the heart to most of us are our friends and our family...thank you for thinking of me and your kind words! I am so full of youngsters in the house that I am sure it does remind you all of years past...I am not ready to be in your boat though (sooo not ready to have teens! yikes!)
    This was a wonderful blessing this morning and right start to my weekend.
    I always say that your LO's are like treasures...but I think the real treasure is just you....

  2. Sandy, I always say...what goes around, comes around. ...and you prove it. You have made soooo many nice friendships because you exert kindness, compassion and you are soooooooooo generous in sharing your talents, so it is just natural that everyone would want to do the same for you.
    I am sure these 5 ladies will agree with me...
    ...that you are AMAZING!!
