I Got An Award!

The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note.

Thank you to Marji at

 who honored me with this award!  I am please to pass along 5 fantastic women who inspire me!

Here are the rules:
1- Choose FIVE up and coming blogs to award the Liebster to. Blogs must have less than 200 followers.
2- Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3- Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.
Here are my choices for the Liebster Blog Award.


Please stop by these amazing blogs, become a follower and see what they can do to inspire you too!

Erica's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

It's the first weekend of the month and that can only mean one thing....
it's time for the 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop!

If you've landed here then you've arrived from the very talented Tracy at

If you came from somewhere, please head on back to the start to see all the wonderful creations from my friends!

This month I'm using New Arrival, A Child's Year & Cuttin' Up!
My little sister is pregnant and she is having a boy.
For Christmas I made her and her husband a 6 x 6 scrapbook for their new little boy.
Next, I made a 12 x 12 scrapbook for a friend. Her husband came to me (he's also a friend!) and asked me to re-do her baby book. It was a mess! The pages were literally disintegrating around the pictures. I took it all apart, and the pictures were still in pretty good shape. Here are a few pages from the scrapbook, first I used Cuttin' Up! and A Child's Year.
Next, I used Gypsy Wanderings for a few pages.
The scrapbook was 38 pages by the time I got done!
Stay tuned for more pages in future postings!

Remember, you need to visit every blog and leave a comment or "love" as we like to call it, on each persons blog to be eligiable for Erica's blog candy!  She randomly chooses comments from our blogs! 

Here's the whole line up just in case you got lost!
