A new award and blog candy!

Happy 4th of July everyone!! I am really hoping to get a little scrapping done today between company and parties, but in the mean time, I wanted to share these two things!

DEBBIE HAS CANDY!!  That's right!! The generous and fabulous Debbie is offering some wonderful candy to celebrate the 4th! All you have to do is become a follower of her blog and leave a comment!!  You can get there by clicking HERE!!! But hurry..... you only have a couple of days to be entered into the drawing!!!

And.... I am soooo lucky to have met so many wonderful people through my blogging! Everyone is so kind and supportive and I learn so much from each and every one of you every day!! I have been lucky enough to receive this fabulous award from TWO of my friends!!! Now that really makes me feel loved!!!! Let me teel you about them.....

First, my lovely bloggy friend Judy has been so kind to pass this lovely blogger award on to me!! If you have not had a chance to meet Judy yet, you need to go visit her and check out her blog! She is sooooo sweet and makes some of the best projects I have seen! AND she always shares her files and tips so that we can make the projects ourselves!! Not to mention she always gives things away!! Please go visit her and share some blog love with her!! You can get there by clicking HERE!!!  (She also has some great music on her blog!!)

AND I also received this award from my sweet, sweet friend Denise!!  Denise has an amazing amount of talent and is always so kind to visit my blog and share some nice words about my creations!! Her LOs and cards are so creative and fun!! I learn so much from her!! And right now.... Denise is giving away some blog candy!! Please stop by and visit her, follow her and leave her some kind comments!! You can get there by clicking HERE!!

So... here are the rules:
This award comes with a set of rules...

1) Thank the person who gave it to you 2) Tell seven things about yourself 3) Pass the award on to five bloggers whom you think are fantastic...
So.... 7 things about me....
1. I am a major beach bum!! Give me a beach and a good book and I am happy!!
2. I LOVE chocolate!! It is my favorite treat!!! Can't get enough of it!!
3. I love spending time with my amazing family!! I am so blessed to have 4 healthy children, a husband who adores me, and parents that are still very active in my life!! Not to mention my sisters who are my best friends!!
4. I like to mow my lawn! I know... sounds crazy!! But think about it... when I am on my mower, the kids can't ask me for anything, and I don't answer phone calls!! Pretty peaceful!!
5. I really, really hate the sight of blood! My son recently cut his hand at work and wanted to know if I wanted to see his cut.... NO!! I am such a baby!!
6. My friends call me Martha Stewart... I love to entertain and everything has to be in matching serving dishes that coordinate with the theme... and I love to decorate for parties!!
7. I am a bit of a dare devil... love to do things like zip lining and exploring!! A little adventure is always good!!
Now I would love to pass this on! I know the award says to pass it to 5 people but since I received it twice, I am going to pass it on to 10 people!!! I could easily give this to so many more people because I have made so many wonderful friends, but I am going to stick to 10... in no particular order!!
1. Leah - Beeing Creative and Feeling Cherry
2. Diana - All the Days of Our Lives
3. Pat - A Scrappin Nana
4. Joni - Love Life
5. Susan - Paper Daisy Dreams
6. Debbie - Love Life's Little Pleasures
7. Jocelyn - Simply Me
8. Aaron - Scrappin Lils Creative Side
9. Jane - Scossie Jane
10. Sheila - She's a Sassy Lady
Please stop by these ladies blogs and share some blog love with them!! They are all so wonderful and sweet!! And thank you ladies for always being so kind and supportive!! I love all the super sweet comments you leave me each day!!
Have a safe and happy 4th of July!!
