This collage was made with much love to inspire my wonderful daughter in law Lori, who is stuggling with her weight. She has recently started a new blog ** He Gives Beauty For Ashes ** to help her with this struggle. Please stop by and give her a word of encouragement.

This is an 8 x 10 chipboard background with ephemera paper embellished with a butterfly images, glitter, buttons and a face cab by Lin's Art and Clay Creations.



I am truly touched and humbled to receive this award and I really don't know what to say. At the heart of blogging we each reach out in our unique way to share a message, encourage others, and try to spread a little sunshine, but often we are the ones relishing the much needed friendships that transpire, and it is heavenly to experience the joy of so much unconditional caring that goes on here.
Joni, I thank you for this gift.

...and now I get the privilege of passing it on to Seven Brilliant Bloggers who have repeatedly blessed me with their words and encouragement. ~ Please accept this award from my heart to yours ~

You will never know how blessed I truly am to have a friend and Mother in Law like you. You have always been so supportive and caring. You make my life better and happier each day. Thank you so much, I am going to hang this right in my room where I dress each day so I can start out my day with inspiration.

I love you so much,

Thank you

Your loving daughter,
