I'm not a big blog awards person myself, but I have to say this is one of my favorites. Rules: Post three things you love about your BFF/BFF Blog and send it to them.  Only aloud to give out one award at a time. My BFF is Jen from Thoughts of a Working Mom . Three things about Jen that I love... 1) She accepts me for well me.  There is no sense of pretence with her.  I can be me withough judgement. 2) She is my comic relief.  I can always count on a smile around her.  And it is awesome to just look at her know we are thinking the same things aka our "secret " language. 3) She is my biggest support, being with me 100%of the way, no matter if it is with family, churhc, work, scrap booking or my weightloss.  She is my biggest cheerleader! Love ya girlie! So stop by and say hi to my BFF !

CSDivas' New Design Team

CSDivas are pleased to announce our new Design Team Divas!  Three were chosen and they are just wonderful ladies and scrappers! STEPHANIE Scrapbooking is my passion and I'm blessed with the time, money, space and an understanding husband to be able to create my heart out. My pages tell the story of my family - what we are doing today; what my life is like, what my kids are doing and saying. It's a record of our life and love for my kids and their kids to look back upon and remember. Along with that, it's my creative outlet. I don't sew or garden or write poetry. I scrapbook because I find joy in coordinating papers and colors, ribbons and buttons, embellishments and techniques to coalesce into my own work of art. I'm always learning, always striving to be better because this is something I truly love. If I can inspire someone or teach someone along the way, well that gives me another reason to do what I do. I can't wait to meet you all and get to know you bett
