Exciting news!!!

Well ladies, I got the most awesome early birthday presents!! I'm dying to share my exciting news with you, so here goes:

Creative team member
First of all: I've been chosen for the creative team of Song Bird Scraps!!! Yeah me!!!
This brand new challenge blog will upload new challenges on the 1st and 15th of every month, providing 2 sets of song lyrics to inspire you to make a beautiful LO... the best LO from the month wins a delicious pack of goodies!!!!!! I'm counting on all my friends here to join in the fun and make this new blog a huge success!

And now that I've had some time to think about this and let it sink in ... is it normal that I'm starting to feel a bit nervous LOL???? I'm still such a newbie at this, I've never been on a creative team before, I so hope I'll live up to their expectations ... I do not intend to let them down!!

I would also like to congratulate fellow Songbirds Kristi Brandis, Chiquita James, Shelly Williams and Jane Smith. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Fabulous blog award

I've been rewarded this fabulous blog award by not one but two of my sweet blogging friends Delaina and Jacque! Thanks girls, you are the sweetest! I've only been blogging a short time, so to be given this award is doing wonders for my self-confidence ... It's such a nice feeling to be appreciated and to know that some people are actually interested in something I have to say LOL.

Now I'm supposed to list 5 of my addictions (besides scrapping of course) and then hand out this award to 5 others whose blog I think is fab, so here goes:

My 5 addictions:
1. Cigarettes (way to many)
2. Eating (when I'm not eating, I'm thinking about eating ... sad I know)
3. Visiting scrapbooking blogs (I can spend hours browsing)
4. Bubbles (pc-game, again, hours go by so fast once I start playing that game)
5. ?

I couldn't think of a fifth one, but with 4 addictions like that, who needs a fifth, right??

And these are the 5 ladies I'd like to give this award to (choosing just 5 has been killing me, there are so many awesome blogs going around ...)

1. Mandy - A teacup of Scrapisms
2. Sasha Farina - Collection of Moments
3. Kell Lusted - Kells Tumbleweed
4. April - Scrapper Forever!
5. Lynn - Pretty Paper Swirls

When you see this award, please pass it on to 5 more and list your 5 addictions.

Be sure to check out Delaina's and Jacque's blog as well ... thanks again for giving me this award!

Well, that's it for now ... after having been sick in bed for four days, I have so much house work to catch up on ... better get started!
