a little Lullaby from Dream Street

I used the new Lullaby collection from Dream Street yesterday. You will just LOVE this line! So many cute patterns in this collection. I can't wait to play with more.

And I've just discovered that my friend, Nancy, has awared me with this award!

This is called The Proximity Award. "These blogs believe and invest in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their awards".

So - now I have to pass on the honors! Hmmm... this is going to be tough. Hard to choose such a limited number. But here goes:

Hilary: Hilary and I met when Sweetwater papers started their scrapbook club. We've stayed friends since then. I wish I could spend a weekend with her in her scrapbook room, but since I can't, her blog is the next best thing. I hope you stop by and visit. It's so inspiring.

Donna: Donna is someone that I was lucky enough to scrap with. I watched her create this mini book and was amazed at all the tiny little details she put into this. I wish she had more pics of it up (hint) so you could see.

Anabelle: I'm always dropping my jaw open when I view her creations. I love her style and attention to beautiful unexpected details. She's also a Memory Makers Master, so check out the MMM blog for even more of her crafty little tips.

Godelieve: I have a confession - when I first started visiting Godelieve's blog - I thought she WAS Mathilda. LOL. I love her artistic stamping creations and great how-to's. Hope you enjoy.

Kristen: I'm always amazed at not only the amount of creations Kris produces, but at how awesome each and every one of them is. Way to go, Kriss. I need to come and scrap with you, too!

Michelle: I've just recently became a stalker..uh, viewer of Michelle's blog. It's full of beautiful creations and also fun little things to make me smile.

Arlette at the Polka Dot Pineapple: I found this blog sometime before the holidays. It's not a papercraft site. I have it listed under my "sewing" favorites, but oh my goodness - the eyecandy is beautiful. Makes me want to sew more. Arlette is in Hawaii so I can just imagine the beautiful scenery for her inspiration.

And the last of eight... which means there are at least 10 more that I'm having to leave out! Yikes.... but okay - Number eight is
Betsy. I love her use of color and her creativity with the cricut and cuttlebug, well - I just love everything she creates.

So - now go and visit these blog and bookmark them and check out their favorites. It's a great way to add to your favorites list or google reader (don't you love google reader!).

And I leave you with one little peek. This isn't a CHA related peek - it's a peek of some cards I created with the Feburary Cupcardstogo kit! Yep - it's almost that time again.

That's all you get for now. Have a great day!

Hilary Kanwischer said...

Well now how sweet of you Melanie! I wish I could spend a weekend cropping with you would be such fun to actually meet you in person since we've been friends for what like almost 5 years??? :) Thanks so much for the award Melanie...oh my, and before I forget, how adorably sweet is that layout? Is that an actual pink frame? That is sooo pretty and what a beautiful keepsake. :)
