Monday, January 30, 2012

Hello everyone!!! 
I had an amazing weekend, I was given the opportunity to go to CHA Winter on Sunday and boy what an experience, I would love to thank Angela Pruitt, co-owner of Basically Bare who invited me to CHA. I got so lucky and I am so grateful! I had the opportunity to check out all the amazing new product and I finally got to meet my all time idol Tim Holtz, wow he is amazing and a true inspiration! I was MELTING when I met him, I was truly out of words, and to top it off I got to meet other scrappy celebrities as well!!! Amy Tan from American Crafts she is a doll, Elizabeth Kartchner from Dear Lizzy by American Crafts she is such a nice and beautiful person as well, and I could not forget Graphic 45 CEO Diane Shultz, she looks amazing in that wonderful outfit and she is the sweetest! Here are a few pictures:

I felt in scrappy heaven, truly I did, and meeting all these wonderful icons in the industry made it even better!! 
Today was the amazing reveal for the Round Robin Challenge over at the forums, such amazing talent the ladies have going on over there, please stop by and check out the complete reveal here FORUMS here is my take on this amazing challenge, kept it simple and cute!

Loved using the twine, and the amazing flowers I handmade them, I really love that I had a hue going, so much fun! 

My talented, lovely and dear friend Tammy awarded me the Liebster Award, she is so sweet and it is truly an honor to receive this award. She is the sweetest so please visit her and leave her some love!

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.

Here are my picks to receive this wonderful award these ladies always inspire me with their blogs in one way or another! Thank You!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have an amazing week!!!

Products Used: Studio Calico Paper, Tim Holtz Stamps, Distress Inks, Twine, Prima Flowers, Handmade Flowers by me, Technique Tuesday Stamp, Zva Pearl Flourish.
