My scrap friends are so good to me.

Click here to see pictures of Crew with the chicken he got at the baby shower my friends held for me this summer. Those little jeans in the picture above came from my friend in Canada. It's definitely jean's weather here in Michigan right now.
Then...
my dear friend, Jo-Anne, made me tear up over a page she scrapped for me. You can see her beautiful page by clicking here. Our hearts and souls have connected between Michigan and Holland. I only wish we didn't have so many miles keeping us apart in "real life". I would have her over for French Toast and Lemon bars if I could.
I just want to tell my 'scrap friends' how much I love and appreciate them in my life. They are all so genuine and creative and sarcastic and fun and most of all, they love me just the way I am. Now that's the kind of friends that are normally so hard to find, but I guarantee you that by joining in the message boards at SIStv, you will find some friends of your own. I'm so thankful for a place to be able to share ideas, recipes, prayer requests, and so much more.
Today I am thankful for all the friendships I have made as a result of scrapping. If you're among them, consider yourself hugged from me today. xoxo

That scrap page was so beautiful and so right on and so true.

I can't imagine how loved and blessed your children feel because we just read your blog and feel pretty blessed ourselves.

Thanks for all the photos of your boy; he's such a little doll!

What a beautiful scrap page - and although I don't know you, from what you have taught me through your blog, you so deserve your precious little boy and your other children too. What a delightful family!

Every morning I check your blog to see if you have new pictures of your darling baby boy.
Your newest "blessing" is perfect and a wonderful addition to your family.
Keep sending the pictures!
