Blog Award

I am so very late at picking up this award but I wanted to thank my two friends, Wanda at My Happy Place and Nanne at Nanne's Creations for thinking of me to give this award to.
I cannot begin to explain the blessings that have come to me since I have found this wonderful world of papercrafts.
I have a joy in my everyday life that belongs just to me and friends to share that incredible is that!

As much as I love creating I could not imagine my life without my friends that I now chat with everyday.

Thank you friends for sharing your time with me, by sharing your time, you are sharing a piece of yourself. Many blessings to you all.

Now the fun part of this aware is to mention 10 things that "knock your socks off"!

Here I go...(and in no particular order)

1. The morning my phone rang and I was told that the birth mother was in labor..hours later I was holding my son Scotti. And the following years the births of my "surprise" Jordyn and my angel Cody. Dang it...still makes me cry thinking of those moments!

2. The Lord for who has given me all I've ever dreamed!

3. My family, my fun parents and beautiful sisters and my niece Maddie

4. My husband, for if it was not for his persistance in life we would not even be together.

5. Creating. Now that I stay home with the kids that usually means something with paper. Before that I did makeup and loved it. I do miss it very much but am happy with whatever I can do creatively.

6. The outdoors. Being in nature is a part of the very core of who I am. When I was a little girl I spent most days outside. Fresh air seems to lift my spirit and nature revitalizes my soul (wow, that sounded super cheesy! LOL!)

7. The computer. For without it I'd have no friends and be bored silly!

8. Reading. I did love to read, usually romance fiction but these days I have been so busy its been awhile since I picked up a book.

9. Movies. I love staying in and watching something low key. (Since I have had children I can not seem to watch anything to intense, LOL, I need to watch something light and fluffy! LOL!)

10. My camper. We bought a large travel trailer (Keystone Copper Canyon) a couple years ago and I still get so excited anytime we go anywhere! Even if its just an overnight to Half Moon Bay. I hope to give just a piece of the fun I had when I was a child to my children.

Now I am supposed to send this back off to 3 more friends....

1. My friend Jennifer, who I chat with almost daily over on the cricut mb! She is a great friend and an absolute amazing papercrafter!

2. Stine, a friend I met through the Pregnancy Chat thread on the mb. We now both have wonderful baby boy's to enjoy (and scrapbook!)

3. Barb, we are still getting to know eachother by way of our blogs but I wanted to give this to you because you always give me your time by coming by and leaving comments. I think that is a wonderful way of showing that you thank you for your support and I look forward to getting to know you better!

OMG! I am soooo totally flattered that you thought of me today!! I have had so much fun getting to know you through our blogs... I just felt an immediate connection to you when I first saw your blog... You are so amazing with so many talents and a great sense of humor! I love reading the comments you leave me, as well as others, because they are so full of personality! You (and your design team at SOUS) are the reason I started a blog myself. You all were having so much fun creating and sharing and commenting... I wanted to join the fun and I am so grateful that I did. My husband is working in Texas right now and I am stuck in Indiana for a few more months. My scrapbooking time, after the kids are in bed, is what keeps me sane... it is also what is keeping me from getting my house work done! LOL!!! Leah - thank you so much for thinking of me!
