Thank you, Pattie!

I received this lovely award this evening from my stampy friend, Pattie GoldmanThanks so much, sweetie!!  You sure know how to make a girl feel special!  I first' met' Pattie back in the spring when I launched The Shabby Tea Room challenge blog.   Pattie started playing along with our weekly challenges and I quickly noticed that she was a very talented paper crafter.  Pattie applied for a Design Team position as a Shabby Girl when we had our next opening and I was delighted to have her join our team of fun and creative girlies!

It has been fun to see Pattie grow and spread her wings creatively!  Pattie does a wonderful job showcasing all her amazing work on her blog -- such a fun place to visit!  Pattie's gorgeous creations have not gone unnoticed as she now holds positions with a handful of Design Teams and has shared with me that she has even bigger and better goals set for herself!  I have no doubt that she will achieve each and every one of them!

It is such a joy and pleasure to share this amazing passion that we all have for paper crafting with such wonderful, kind and caring women ... I am truly blessed to be a part of such a special community of friends :)
