A Weekend of Firsts and Awards!

This has been a weekend of firsts and milesones.  My first blog hop (that I was a stop in), reaching 125 followers friends, and several blog awards.   Three of the awards, I will address at a later date- but I want to thank Tami at Scrapping Rabbits Creations, Tiffany at Sparkled Memories, Amy at Love to Crop, and Jessica at Chick-n-Scrap for thinking of me!  I really appreciate it!

The award that I want to talk about on this post is from Diana at DL.ART 

The rules of this award are:
1. Post about it on your blog with a link to the sender.
2. Pass it on to  those who visit your blog and leave comments regularly.

I would like to thank these fellow crafters for visiting, commenting and inspiring me! There are so many more- that I had to stop somewhere.  They are in no particular order:

Amber- My 3 E Scrapbooking
Karen- Empty Nest Boutique
Jen- Jen's Craft Corner
Amy- Love To Crop
Tiffany- Sparkled Memories
Carri (abusybee)- Double Click Connections
Jessica- Chick-n-Scrap
Amber- Amber's Crafts and Stuff

Thank you so much Diana
It is very easy to be a regular follower of hers.  Her site is wonderful and she has some amazing projects!  Diana was my very first blog friend, and I will always remember her for that!
Stop by and give her some love!

And if you haven't met any of the other ladies, stop by their blogs and tell them I sent you!

Thanks for stopping by!
