I was absolutely stunned and speechless (yes, unusual for me!) to have received this very special award from Barb at 'Made for Keeps'
How sweet is that! I have only been blogging for a very short while, but all the people I meet and chat with are so lovely and always willing to help or give good advice!
I could not believe someone would think of me for this award and I am so grateful she has given this to me.
Barb has a real eye for bringing a design together and her blog is full of love and inspiration. So pop over and have a look, you won't be disappointed.

I have really felt the love and inspiration shared by fellow crafters on blogging and I am so glad I 'stumbled' upon this very unique set of friends.

Part of receiving this award is the pleasure of passing it on to fellow crafters that enjoy sharing their creations and their love and passion for crafting. So I am passing this award on to the following 5 people with a huge thanks and lots of love !

1. Bev - All the things I love
2. Rach - Papercraftsbyrach
3. Amanda - Sticklepink
4. Katharina Frei - Creative Ideas
5. Jacqi - Cats Whiskers
5. Debby - Scrapjourney

What an apt award to be giving and receiving around Valentines day ! .....spreading the love of our craft with others!

p.s. I know I can't count, but I wanted these 5 + 1 so i thought if I added 5 twice you would not notice ! lol
