I am so thankful that you asked me to be a part of this fantastic team - you are an amazing person with so much passion for scrapping and for inspiring others. It is such a joy to be part of this.

I feel so blessed to be part of this funny, creative, and caring group of women you selected for the team. Each one is so different and so special, and it is always so fascinating to see how we respond to the challenges. It warms my heart how supportive and nurturing each one is.

I am so grateful for all the wonderfully talented and enthusiastic participants who join us every few weeks in these challenges. This blog would not really come to life without you - it would be like a pear tree with some leaves and buds; your creations are the beautiful blossoms and fruits.

Thank you to all and have a wonderful Thanksgiving, whether it is a holiday in your home or not.

Just wanted to take the time to thank for always being so kind and loving towards all. You have the best outlook on life and I know even with daily challenges that you still find the good in people and life. You are such a blessing and thought I would take the time to let you know how much good you are doing in this world and in your life and those you surround yourself with both here in and person. Your family, friends and scrapping companions are so blessed to have you and I am so glad our paths crossed last year thanks to SIStv!!!

Have a joyous filled holiday season,
