Liebster blog award



I found out this morning that I have received a blog award from a fellow blogger! How cool! A very sweet and uber talented lady by the name of Tammy gave this to me. You must check out her blog...Tammy has mad talent!!!! Click on her name and it will take you to her wonderful blog.

About the award: “Liebster” is a German word meaning dearest, beloved or favorite, and the Liebster Award is sort of a chain letter among bloggers that’s intended to showcase exceptional up-and-coming blogs (typically, those with 200 or fewer followers). There’s no evaluation committee or formal award process for the Liebster, but in a way it’s even nicer – it’s recognition that a peer has noticed and appreciated your hard work.

Here are the rules:• Choose 5 up and coming blogs of fewer than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.
• Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
• Post the award on your blog. Link back to the blogs you have given the Liebster to so everyone else can pay them a visit.

Now for my choices for the blogs that I can pass this torch on to.. There are many and I mean many talented artist out there. They provide inspiration to each of us, with the tuts and art work they have done. One of the highest compliments one can give, is to become a follow of their blog.

Here are my choices:

Jane - she so uber talented...a star in her own right!
Virginia - not only is she super talented but super sweet too
Lisa - This lady is very talented but is her life and how she lives it is also inspiring.

so thats who I pick! I wonder who they will!

Have a wonderful day

I love to work with chipboard! you can do so much with it...ink it, stamp it, spray it, crackle it, paint it, bling it and so much more....you can even leave it naked and it looks fabulous.


For my first project I used Riddersholm papers, Bello Pastello Collection No64, Bello Pastello Collection No69, Bello Pastello Collection No77 and of course some awesome chipboard....Flourish 1 ( 3 on board) : by Imaginarium

My second project is a Fabulous little chipboard album from Melissa Francis! I also used some wonderful papers from Fabscraps, and Riddersholm and Pink Paislee's Anthology Flair rosettes. Some alphas, embellishments and lace from stash

I decided to use the album as a memory keeper from 2011....I used my favorite photo from each month or a photo that affected me somehow (see March)
