Begins Monday March 1st@ 10AM !

So now it is my turn to pass on the Sunshine Award to 6 scrappy people. I am going to break ranks and pick one person- who is a scrapper- but her [non scrapping] blog is so inspirational and amazing, that I have to include it.
So to start off, I want to send one to Leighann at Living With Three Hobbits and A Giant. This is the blog I was mentioning. Leighann has always intimidated me. From the first time I met her to pretty much every time I see her. She is the mom I want to be. She has so much faith that she has made me question my lack of faith and made me reevaluate my views on religion and its place in my life. If you haven't read this blog and the story of their miracle son Ryan, please do so now. I promise you that you won't be disappointed. But I can't promise you won't cry
Now on to some scrappy Sunshine Award recipients
- I have "known" Megan for a few years now. She was on the very first scrapbooking board I ever joined. At that board I participated in a baggie swap and Megan sent me some high quality paper- Basic Grey- I think and it changed my life. She is by far one of my scrappy idols and I LOVE her work.
- If you haven't seen Keely Yowler's work then you really should check it out. She is amazing. Truly, I love looking at her work, it is so inspirational.
- Next is Kim Holmes, from Dixie Pieces. Her blog is so fun and her work is amazing.
- Mia is a new scrapper. She posted at the Every Day Scrapper she has only been scrapbooking for a year. Which totally blows my mind. Her work is so great and she is such a sweet person. One of those people you can just tell you would have fun with.
- Lastly, is Tammy. Another scrapper from Dixie Pieces. She is so nice and her work is stunning. The things she can do with flowers and glitz totally blows my mind.
So there you have it. I hope I have introduced you to some new blogs.

Now the bag was actually a pinkish red. I added some blue paint and it turned it a fun shade of blue/lavender. But some of red still shows up. The chipboard flower is Basic Grey. Simple layout yes, but I like it.
The journaling is tucked away but reads "when I look at this picture all I can think is how young we look. We really weren't that young. But we weren't married and had no kinds. Life was so different. But I wouldn't trade that for now."

Ok this this one is from scrapbook challenges- sketch 186. I am also going to use it for 52 x 52 challenge - to use polka dots, ribbon and written journaling. I am not really happy with it, but . . . it is done. It just didn't come together the way I wanted it to. Oh well.
PS- don't forget the EDS blog hop, ends tomorrow night.

Ok, first of all, this is from a sketch and for a challenge at the Scrap-Room. The PP and cardstock came from their monthly kit. The hearts, ribbon and big doily heart came from a game at Dixie Pieces. It was a round of winner takes all, and I won. Lastly, I am going to use this for the Candy Shoppe Designs recipe challenge; the challenge called for
-picture(s) of your loved one
-any type of doily - even the paper kind
-flowers *to taste
-the colors pink & red *even a pinch will do!
PS- don't forget the EDS Blog Hop, it is still going on.
The second is from "True's Gift's From the Heart" It is a pretty amazing spread- here is what you could win. Your chance to win ends on the 28th.
So make sure you check them both out.
Here is one of them, for Sassy Lil Sketches. I was so happy when I saw this sketch, because I had these two photos that I needed a sketch for.
PS - don't forget the EDS blog hop

But before I show you the cards, I wanted to remind everyone that there are stops before me, so if you are one of my followers, or you just happened upon my page, please go back to the beginning and play along. All the fun started at ScrapTiffany.
I made four cards all the same papers from KI Memories. I stamped them using stamps from Recollections and inked them with various markers from Close to My Heart and Slick Writers. The first two are from Sketches at My Sketch World, the third is from Page Maps, the fourth is my own creation.
Lastly, I want to thank so much for joining the hop and visiting my page. Please feel free to look at my other work and become a follower or even leave a comment or two.
Your next stop in the hop is with Carla. Have fun and I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

This one is Sketch 184. I really love how this one turned out. The papers are Sandy Lion. I backed the Queen & Co with cheap black paper. The alphas are Thickers. Bling is Zva. `
Ok I have to be honest. When I first saw this Sketch, 185, I wasn't a fan. I am not one for papers like this, but I do have to say that I LOVE how it turned out. PP is Basic Grey. I used a Close to My Heart to stamp and emboss the journal tag. Alphas are Thickers.

Anyway, I used the sketch #35 from Twisted Sketches for it, aptly enough the "twist" was to use animals.
PP are Websters pages. Journal spots are Jilli Bean Soup. Alphas are Paper Studio.
