Friendships have a Way of Growing Without Us Knowing

Friendship has a way of growing without us knowing but when it happens it's like a rose. It starts to grow slowly then blooms into a wonderful thing.
I happened upon Jan's blog one night, linked her's to mine, and then in my total surprise was given by her a bind-it all. I haven't had the chance to create with it due to my circumstances here, but I have so many intentions of making family members Christmas gifts.
Then again to my total disbelief Jan awarded me "The Circle of Friendship Award." Thanks Jan for thinking of me as a friend, it's made my heart smile tonight.
Here's a link to Jan's blog if you are wanting to see some fasinating creations, each time I visit I am so inspired!

Here are the rules for this award: To pick up the Circle of Friends Blog Award cut and paste the award logo and use it on your own blog. Nominate 5 other bloggers you feel have become part of your circle of friends. Link to your nominees within your blog post. Include these instructions on how to pick up the award in your blog post. Link back to the person who gave you the award in your blog post, to show your appreciation. Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.

In an appreiciation of five friends who have been there for me the last bit when things just seem to never end in anything but turmoil I'm awarding this award to: ScrappeeDiane, prettypilot2002, amy, leslie, and Mindy. These people probably don't realize how they have touched my life, but since my husbands car accident this year, they've been about when things have been rough, they've shared a comment about something, or they've crafted the most amazing layouts and creations that put a smile on my face when I have blog hopped. Thanks ladies for being there and being a true friend.
