Wahoo!!! I am so very excited to announce that I found out today that I made the Design Team for Creative Scrappers. I don't start officially until September 1st, but I am so totally excited and can't wait to start working with such a talented team of women on such a great board. Thanks so much Kristine!!!

Ok everyone...I am feeling the love today for sure. Deb, a dear friend of mine that I have known from a couple of different message boards, so wonderfully gave me a Wylde Women Award on her blog. Check it out here! The purpose of this award is "to send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy". She had such lovely things to say and I just want to thank her for this sweet, sweet honor. Part of getting this award is that I need to pass this on, so here are the rules:

You can give it to one or one hundred or any number in between - it's up to you. Make sure you link to their site in your post. Link back to Tammy's blog so that she can go to visit all these wonderful women. Remember the Purpose of the Award.

I am giving this award to:

Tam - This woman has been such a wonderful friend to me and also a huge inspiration. Her talent in her art and also her humour and friendship know no bounds. I am always in total awe of all of her artistic work. She truly can lift my spirits under any circumstance. She is one terrific lady!

Martha - Dear, sweet Martha is probaby the most soft-spoken of all my friends. I so enjoy our long conversations and she always has a kind word to say about everything and everyone. She can find the positive in almost any situation and her talents as a scrapper are fantastic!

AngieDe - Angie has to be one of the most kind, thoughtful women I have had the honor of meeting and becoming online friends with. Her thoughtfulness and generosity is never ending. She is truly a genuine person and talented scrapper.

I could go on and on with special women in my life, but I better save some for the ladies I have given the award to.

Deb...thanks again for this wonderful award!!! {{{HUGS}}}

This is the sketch and my layout for the Scrappy Donna Sketch Contest at Creative Scrappers and the same sketch is also being used for the Weekly Sketch Challenge #11. I took tons of pictures of my youngest granddaughter one day and though alot of them are similiar, she has a unique look in each of the 6 I kept, so I have felt the need to scrap them all....LOL! I can't see why anyone would get tired of seeing that sweet little face...but then again...I may be a little bit biased!

It's finally cooling off a bit.......Wahoo! It is only in the low 80's with hardly no humidity and a wonderful breeze and I couldn't be happier. I took a long walk this morning and am hoping to take another this evening. I really need to get back to my walking, but it's just been to darn humid to even breath outside. I picked a whole pail of fresh green beans along with other veggies and the beans will be slow cooking on the stove to have with dinner....YUM! After that I can finally head to my scrap room for the evening and work on a layout I am doing for a contest over at Creative Scrappers. Check the contest and sketch details out here!

This is the layout I did for the weekly challenge last week at Go. Be Creative. Thanks so much for the great challenge Tam....I enjoyed this!

I have been really busy scrap-wise this last week or so and these are some of my faves. The wonderful "Sketchfest" at Creative Scrappers really got my mojo going and with all the wonderful challenges and sketches I completed 13 layouts and a few cards in less than a week....Whew!!! Deb Harter put together some really fun games and I was lucky enough to have won a Cosmo Cricket Paper pack in the Scavenger Hunt. They had alot of daily drawings and gave away alot of really cool prizes. I was so excited to find out I won the last drawing from all the sketch challenges submitted and won a wonderful monthly kit from Freckle Friends. I was thrilled to get so much done and want to thanks Kristine, Deb, Deanne and all the wonderful sketch designers for all their hard work. I think it was huge success.

I hope to add alot more things to my garden over the next few days.....so please check back! Thanks!!!
