*she believed in me and I believe in her* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

hi all...


I wanted to share our latest challenge for These are a Few of My Favorite Things!!  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  This time we want to know YOUR FAVE scrap manufacturer!!!!!!!!!!!!! And mine is Nikki Sivils!!!! I 'met' Nikki online a few years ago, when she was just starting her vision of her own company! :):):):):):):):):) And I took the plunge and applied for her brand new DT...and I was honored when she chose me!!! And my title says it all..."She believed in me, and I BELIEVE in her!" :):):):):):):) I was lucky enough to meet her at CHA in January when I went to work with her in her booth...and she truly is as sweet as she is online! And BONUS...she loves Sandra Bullock! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)









And speaking of Nikki Sivils...have you seen the LATEST blinkie up in the upper left hand corner of my blog??? That's right... click on that baby... and it will take you to the page on Nikki's site where you can grab one too!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! (There are different ones to choose too...scroll to the bottom of the page it links you to and you will see the different ones you can use!) :):):):):):):) And if you are a blogger girl like me and need help posting it on your blog... just send me an email {bmwgirl@cox.net} and I will be happy to help you out! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) You will REALLY want to add it to your blog too... cuz YOU never know who might be looking for it! *wink* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here are some photos from my BFF, friends and family that were over for dinner last night :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Dani, Me and Nikki (Not the Nikki from above! LOL!) :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Brookie and Amanda! :):):):):):):):):):):):)



Brookie, Amanda and Me singing the Theme Song from "VicTORIous" as seen on You Tube! LOL! :):):):):):):) (YES! I do know all the lyrics...and the ones to ICarly, Big Time Rush, Hannah Montana...can you tell who rules the TV in our house??? LOL!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. Niki is always so kind on line. I wish her all the best for many many years of success. DO you know if Archivers will start to carry her line? I know I can buy things online but they are nothing that compares to going to the store to see all the bold color b4 you makes your choices.
