Blog Award Ceremony!

I have been given a few really fun blog awards lately by my sweet scrapping friends, so it is finally time for me pay it forward to some other deserving bloggers! To those of you who gave me the blog awards in the first place, THANK YOU SO MUCH! You made my day, and I am so flattered!! I wish I could give you the same award right back :). But it is only fair to pick some new award recipients, so here we go :)!

I Love Your Blog Award

Super talented hybrid scrapper Michelle Filo nominated me for this one:

Here are the rules:
1. If you’ve been tagged, you can put the logo on your blog.
2. Link the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you’ve nominated.

And here are the blogs I picked for this award:

Rachel Ashwell (Shabby Chic) – She is brand new to blogging, but her first two posts are overflowing with shabby loveliness, which is no surprise to me, since I have been a huge fan of hers for the past 10 years at least!

Tara Frey – Beautiful photos, beautiful thoughts, beautiful everything, actually!

Heather Bullard (Present Past Collection) – Ah what a romantic life she leads, and she is very good at letting others in on it through her gorgeous photography.

Amy (Inspire Company) – If you want a major dose of happiness, creativity and of course, inspiration, look here!

Emily Powers: Wow, this is one inspiring chick: she has such a passion for God and for her art. And her love for others and for life is contagious!

Brenda Walton – Even though she doesn’t blog very often, it is totally worthwhile to bookmark this one. I LOVE LOVE LOVE her journals!!!

Allison – Her stampin’ blog is full to the brim with resources. Challenges, sketches, tons of links!!

Arte y Pico Award

The Digi Scrapping Queen herself (Kate Hadfield) nominated me for this one. To quote Katie:

Arte y Pico is a Spanish language blog (HERE is a (sometimes unintentionally entertaining!) English translation) that celebrates design and creativity in the blogging world. . .

. . .Here are the rules:
1.  Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material, and overall contribution to the blogger community, regardless of the language.
2.  Post the name of the author and a link to his or her blog so everyone can view it.
3.  Each award-winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award.
4.  The award-winner and the presenter should post the link of the “Arte y Pico” blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5.  Please post these rules!

And here are my picks for this award:


Donna Gotlib (Cookie Sunshine)
– I totally LOVE her art!! And she’s such a sweet, sweet person too :)!

Melissa Phillips (LilyBean’s Paperie) – Her work is so unbelievably pretty, everything she does is just perfection!

Cindy Gilchrist – She makes the most fabulous hybrid projects – in fact, why haven’t I featured her here yet? Note to self: feature Cindy ASAP!

Julia Stainton – Sigh. Why can’t I make cards like hers? I am always amazed at what she can do with her stamps and scrapping supplies. Hmm, I need to feature her too!

Authentic Artistry – I’m a regular visitor to this blog at Christina Renee’s site, there’s always something here to help me “think outside the box” and I love her unique style!

Brilliante Weblog Award

This one was awarded to me by two great scrappers: Lynn and Karen!

The rules for this award:
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you’ve nominated.

And here are the blogs I have awarded:

Kathie – This lady is so dear to me, she’s a friend who has known me since the day I was born, and she also happens to be a phenomenal writer with an amazing blog about birds and nature!

JanMary – I’m so lucky to have met Janmary through Weeds and Wildflowers – she has a wonderful personality which is reflected in her blog, go check it out!

Julie Ann Shahin – There’s always something going on at her blog, and she always knows what’s going on in the world of scrapbooking, plus she has a super fun personality :)!

Emily Giovanni – Not only is she an awesome crafter, but she is mom to three boys, so there is plenty of excitement to read about at her stampin’ blog.

Shuterfly Digi Scrap Blog – How can you go wrong when you combine my favorite photo book company with all the coolest digital designers, plus lots of inspiration and digital scrapbooking freebies?

Angie (Scrapscene) – THE place to find out scrapbooking info and ideas :)!

Phew, what a list –  I hope you check out these blogs, I know you’ll find them so inspiring!! Have a great week :)!
