A Very Special Birthday

Well I can now let the cat out the bag. A few weeks ago the entire CT team decided to do a bit of a colab kit for your birthday. We knew we had to jump in early and get it done before your birthday week started, so we've been sitting on the top secret files for a while now. We had this idea and Kristine was kind enough to giv us a colour swatch and from then on the goodies just started to flow.
We called this kit Gratitude. It's to firstly wish you a very happy birthday, but also to thank you for
1. Being the wonderful person that you are.
2. For bringing laughter into our lives.
3. For your generosity.
4. For inspiring us with your beautiful kits.
5. For sharing your knowledge.
6. For being a mentor.
7. For your sensitivity

BUT MOST OF ALL WE WANTED TO MAKE YOU CRY!!!! LOL. Kimmy, have a wonderful birthday. You are so special in so many ways and this is our way of showing you what you mean to each and every one of us.

We were each only going to do a few elements and papers, but with this being a special kit for a very special person it sort of got out of hand and on top of all 4 shared's NSD woes we are adding this humungous kit with all sorts of beautiful goodies from flowers, frames, ribbons, papers, bragbook pages and several sets of alphas.

To my fellow CT members, thanks ladies, you all RAWK big time. A special thanks to Beth for the beautiful bragbook pages and to Silvia for the previews. She took the one job we all probably hate the most and created works of art out of the previews.

We also have some LO's of the team and yes, that is Jazzy sitting on a statue's lap LOL. We're definitely a BAD INFLUENCE on her. I think the girls were quite worried with what I was going to come up with as I asked them if they wanted to be on the "good" girl page or on the "bad" girl page LOL. Kim, we love you so much and it's such an honour and privelege being on your team.

So without much further ado, here's the links to my kit and I'm also hosting Kimberley Rae's bit until I can influence her into getting her own blog up!!! Get to it Kimberley, I got hold of Jazzy's wet noodle and I'm high on power. LOL

You can find the rest of the kit by visiting these blogs

Kim!!!! Many mwahs and squishing hugs. I wish you a very special day.

Ok GF- not only did I have to do my make up TWICE this morning before I could leave- but it's now GONE AGAIN! I have never had such an emotional rollercoaster ride as I did today- you guys are MORE than AWESOME and the Thank you written down seems so little for what you have made me feel today!
I love you guys and I can't thank you enough for this!
