Blog Award

I must start out saying that I LOVE the group of friends that I've made in the paper art community! Truly this group is so giving, inspiring and selfless! I love each of them!!!

Tonight I recieved a Circle of Friends blog award from one of my top favorite people, Sammye Jo! I love this girl! Sammye is true GRITS (Girl Raised in The South)!!! She oozes with southern hospitality! She inspires me! She is SUPER sweet and my list could go on and on and on about her, but I will leave out the mushy stuff! Ha!

Ta daaa.... Heres the award

So the 5 people I've become most close to are:

1. Claudia (DCRU)

2. Karen (Karens Kreations)

3. Penny (Penni Annies)

4. Angie ( Handmade by Lilacanglia)

Ok.... I KNOW I should have 5 different people on here, but I just don't have it in me to not give this award back to the person who sent it... I'm wrong I'm sure, but I MUST give one to Sammye! I'm sorry for not playing fair. *sniff sniff*

5. Sammye Jo ( 62 Cards)

Pay it Forward

Tonight I came across this great great idea on Sammye Jo's blog 62 Cards Crafty Chit Chat and Giveaways.

I'm joining in and hope you will too!

The subject of "pay it forward" has come up quite frequently lately. I love the whole idea of paying it forward and usually the stories I hear are inspiring and uplifting. Then, this past week, I came across Regina's blog, Scrap Creations who had a post about "paying it forward." Regina has a wonderful idea to incorporate paying it forward, crafting, sharing and inspiring. Here are the details...The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me, especially for you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make but I hope you will.2- What I create will be just for you.3-They say I have a year to get it to you. But I promise it will NOT take that long.4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It’s a surprise to both of us at this point.The catch? You must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.So the first five people who post, and are willing to pass it along, will get a handmade gift in the mail from me. When you get it, make sure you post a pic on your blog!I hope you'll play along and pay it forward with me!
