I LOVE blogs. They're kind of like soap operas. You can get so caught up in the day to day drama....or in the case of scrapbooking....the day to day eye candy, and I LOVE eye candy.

A few weeks ago, a special friend of mine scrapped her little Cosmo Cricket heart out, hoping to be picked for one of their design teams. Every day she'd post a layout or other craft that she'd created with the CC line on her blog and in online galleries. The powers that be at Cosmo would then review each persons work in these galleries and blogs. Great advertising gimmick for Cosmo, doncha think? I won't go there right now, but using people for free advertising kind of pisses me off.

And that makes what Tracey did during her Cosmo Cricket week all the more awesome. She posted the following....

"One more thing for today... in the past few days I found another designer that is going for a spot on this awesome team. Her name is Lynn and if you love scrapbooking, paper crafting, and/or Cosmo Cricket, you have got to check out her blog. Yes, technically she is "the competition." She is also very talented and a kick in the pants... go... enjoy her site, too!!!"

..and then she linked to Lynn's blog. Cool, huh? I'm telling ya, good scrappers are good people. They love receiving praise, but I think they love giving it even more. So go check out Lynn's blog. It's a winner.
