I found this paper in my stash, Basic Grey's Olivia collection. I guess I cheated a little bit since there are a couple of shades of the green and pink, but it was so pretty I couldn't resist! The butterfly is from a Unity Kit of the Month and the sentiment was made with Maya Road's Noah Alphabet stamps.
Please head over to the ColourQ blog and check out the wonderful cards and layouts the design team has created for your inspiration, and join in on the fun and fabulous colours this week.
I have something else to share. I was given the Cherry on Top blog award from a lady who really needs no introduction she is THAT fabulous, Emily Leiphart from Art From The Heart.
She is a wonderfully sweet, and kind woman who is extremely talented, and creates the most fabulous CAS cards. She also works magic with Unity Stamps and just finished up a week of being Unity's Growing in Unity girl. I have been lucky enough to get to know her a little better over the last month or so and am very grateful to have done so.
(Sorry I'm a little late with this Emily!) Thank you so very much!
So to follow up on the requirements:
1. Thank the person who gave it to you. - check!
2. Post this award on your blog. - check!
3. List 3 things that you love about yourself.
a. I am passionate about the people and things I love.
b. I am a bit of a closet adrenaline junkie!
c. I am genuine a person.
4. Post a picture that you love.
This is a picture of me and my mom that I have in my craft room. It was given to me by my aunt who flew in from Ontario to come to my bridal shower and surprise me. It's a favourite, because my mom was not one to be photographed and to have one of us together, (as I suffer from the same problem!) is priceless. It is from her 50th Birthday, 7 years before she passed away.
5. tag 5 people to recieve this award.
Thank you again Emily!
My final bit of fun to share is that.............today is officially my Blogaversary! (that is such a funny word!!) If you are at all curious here is my first post!
It was year ago today that this adventure started, and I have one person to thank for that, Jen from Jen's Ink Spot. Check out her blog if you haven't already. She is a PTI master, makes the most adorable rings from buttons and is on the design team for the twinery.
Sometimes, you know you just need a little push. I remember getting a very sweet comment from her on my Flickr account, wondering if I had a blog and if not, I should start one. I had been thinking about it but a) didn't really know how and b) would anyone want to follow it! Then I decided I really didn't care if anyone followed it would just be a fun place to catalogue my creative expressions. It has turned into so much more than that. So, thank you Jen, and thank you everyone who has stopped by and followed my little blog over the past year.
As a special thank you I am giving away a $10 Gift Certificate to Papertrey Ink to one lucky follower. Just leave a comment by midnight MST, Friday, April 1st and I will pick a winner on Saturday.
Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart. I have learned so much from all of you. Have a great day!
