Blog Candy, Lemonade Stand Award and Baking - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Congratulations to the winner of my first blog candy - Melanie S.!

Melanie S. said...
your cards are really cute, thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks, Melanie! I'll be e-mailing you to find out how to get the candy to you. I appreciate the comments that you all left. It's so much fun to share with friends, old and new!

Next - a huge source of inspiration to me is Leslie (aka I do not know of anyone who creates more projects than Leslie! She is a rockin' CTMH sistah and a fellow member of the Legacy Leaders. We get to create with our other Legacy Lovelies a couple of times a year (see you in a couple of weeks, dolls!). Well, Leslie has nominated my blog for its first award! May I say WOOOHOOOO?????!!!!!

Look at this cute little Lemonade Stand. As my Aunt Ada Marie from Wise, Virginia would say...."God love!" Actually, the first word would consist of three syllables, the second of two. You haven't lived till you've heard Ada Marie's drawl.

Anyhoo, Leslie seems to think I give her a little inspiration as well, so she passed along this sweet (pun intended...groan) award to me!!! Thanks, sweetie!

Now I have the honor of passing it along to five of my fave bloggers. Do I have to pick just five? Que bummer. Well, here are my first five:






These lovely ladies are amongst the first to become followers of my young blog! Has it really only been three weeks????? Well, Miss Deb was my initial inspiration to start on this crazy journey. Thanks, Deb!

Here are the rules of the award (To pick up the Lemonade Stand Award):
- Comment on this blog.
- Cut and paste the award logo and use it in your own blog.
- Nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude.
- Link to your nominees within your blog post.
- Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award
- Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation.

Well. Now that I have copied Leslie's instructions, I see that I could nominate 5 to 10 bloggers! Now if I take the time to cut, copy, paste five more, the chocolate chip cookies are guaranteed to burn. Yes, I said chocolate chip cookies. For Saturday's Open House and Open Crop....I promised chocolate! I am baking tonight!!! and tomorrow!!!! Yum!

Artwork coming tomorrow....
