Turnt up for 10 SOC Blog Hop Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of the Turnt up for 10 SOC Anniversary Blog Hop Celebration!  I am not even sure how I first came across Scraps of Color, but I am so thankful I did!  Oh yes!  I think I was looking for crops in my area because most of my friends don't share my papercrafting fetish lol, and SOC must have come up in my search.  One thing I love about this community is you can really let your hair down and be there for one another, whether it's scrapping together, inspiring one another or holding a virtual hand during tough times.  The group is a resource for paper crafters of color , but welcomes anyone who shares that passion for paper!   

 Here's the line-up below for the Hop, be sure to check out what projects my scrappy sistas have created, some of them have blog candy too!

You are here! Kimberly B: http://mypolkadottedbliss.blogspot.com/

Today's project theme is sistahood, what SOC is all about.  A couple of years ago, I joined the "40 and over club"...


 and decided to scrap a mini scrapbook album about me!  It's a work-in-progress, but I want to share the section on friends...these are some of my closest girlfriends,  ones I know I can count on for anything...



The book is an Amy Tangerine mini...the different shaped and multi-color pages stitched together caught my eclectic eye.  



I got busy adding some of my favorite things.  Unity has great girlfriend stamps, this one is   Vickie, Catherine and Lecia Girls. My friends know chocolate is the way to my heart!


My hubby threw me an awesome "surprise" party that year, with family and friends...love that man!


The best friendships are not perfect...the best friends see you at your worst, don't judge and love you anyway!  These girls have seen me through so much, we have shared a lot of tears and even more laughter and I love them like sisters!
We may not talk everyday but I know they're here for me.  Can't wait to add the rest of my girls!
Thanks for taking a peek!
Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win some Fall scrappy supplies!  Make sure you comment on my post each day of the Hop, I would love for you to follow my blog but is isn't a requirement (I know not everyone is on bloglovin). The lucky winner's name will be chosen out of a hat on Monday, Oct. 13th.
