for Randi...

Today is a day to honor a very special person, one of the breadsticks in the Our Daily Bread Designs basket, Randi.  To celebrate ODBDs is having a special blog hop in her honor.  Today is Randi's 60th birthday and as she struggles yet again with another bout of cancer we all want to let her know how special she is to us and how very much we love her.  I have been blessed to meet Randi in person at a couple of Our Daily Bread Designs shows and am honored to call her friend.  Much can be learned from watching how Randi lives her life and faces her battles with cancer head on while clinging tightly to the Lord.

If you arrive here from Dawn's blog then you are in the right place.  If not you may want to hop over to the ODBD's blog to start at the beginning of the hop.  Also if there is a link broken or you get lost all the links are there for you.  Kelley is giving away some fabulous prizes (all the details are on the ODBD blog) and all you have to do is leave a comment on each member of the design teams blog and wish Randi a happy birthday on the ODBD blog.

now hop on over and visit 
and see what loveliness she has in store for you!
What I used:

SU crumb cake, whisper white, basic black
