My First Blog Award!

Ashley from Made Especially For You was sweet enough to give me The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award.  It's kind of exciting because I've had my blog for a very short time and this is my first blog award.  Thanks Ashley!  I'm now supposed to pass it on to seven other bloggers and tell you seven things about myself.  I am new to blogging so I wanted to give the award to some other new bloggers whose blogs I've noticed are so "sweet".  And a couple of them aren't new I just really love their blogs and the creations they make.  :) 

Seven Things About Me:

  1. I've been happily married for 20 years in November.
  2. I have an 18-year-old daughter who is starting college (which is thankfully only 45 minutes away) in the fall as a dance major.  
  3. I have a 14-year-old daughter who is starting high school in the fall.  We LOVE to craft together.  
  4. I have an 8-year-old son who makes fun of me every chance he gets for crying during Toy Story 3.
  5. I have an English Bulldog named Toby who thinks nobody should sit on the couch besides him.
  6. My favorite shows are Survivor, Big Brother, and Young and the Restless.
  7. My favorite football team is the Washington Redskins.
Here are the seven wonderful bloggers I have chosen for this award in no particular order:

Linda- Crafting With Nana 
Amber- My 3 E Scrapbooking
Leanne- Sweet Little Scraps
Maribel- I Love Scrapping
Adrian- By Adrian 4 U
Jenni- My Lollipop Garden
Cyndy- Arcy Scraps

Please check out these blogs, they all make fabulous cards and layouts!  :)
