Hello everyone!!  Did you know that I just had my 300th post on my blog??  How crazy is that??  Little did I know a little over two years ago that I would have over 300 posts on my has been so much fun sharing with you and joining in on challenges.  Thanks to everyone that visits and leaves me some love.  Here is to another 300 posts......  =)

Sneak Peeks
I have a few sneak peeks of the projects I have been working on with the Apron Strings Designs Smaller Than A Bread Box kit.  All of the papers in this kit were fabulous and I loved working with all of them....they are from Pink Paisley, Fancy Pants, and Graphic 45.  I hope to share the rest of it with you in the next week.

Blog Award

I received a new blog award from Liz at Liz's Paper Loft.  Thanks so much Liz for nominating me for this lovely award, she has been a regular visitor to my blog and always leaves such nice comments.  Liz has some fabulous card and layout should hop on over to her blog and check it out.

I would like to pass this blog award on to the following 5 people for their fabulous blogs that always inspire me........ (there are so many more out there that I love to visit, but it could take me all day to post them)......

Tomi at just what i {squeeze} in- always has something trendy going on...

Tonya at The Cozy House Crafter - check out her fun handmade items....
Brooke at {Designs by Brooke} - she has such a beautiful style.....
Kathryn at The Kitchen Table Crafter - such a fresh style and lovely attention to detail.....

I hope you visit each of their blogs and give them a little love.

Comment Moderation
Unfortunately due to spam being posted on my comments, I have had to start comment moderation.  I don't like it when people think that my blog is a springboard for their personal gain.  I am sorry if this is inconvenient for anyone, but I don't want my blog to be clogged up with ads and inappropriate links.

Summer Giveaway
I still have my Summer Giveaway going on and there is just a little over a week to get your chances in to win one of the Cricut carts I am giving away.

Tutorials and Sketches
I am thinking about starting to post some tutorials and sharing some more of my sketches....would any of you be interested in these??
