More mini notepads

Good morning!  Are you ready for today?  I think I am.  I had a busy night last night, putting a fresh coat of paint on our wicker furniture.  We (accidentally) left it out on the front porch all winter long and it really took a beating.  So, it was really due for some touch ups.  I have a few things to share with you today. 

First up the mini notebook I made for Abie.  I showed you Landry's last week HERE

More Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe goodies on this one and a piece of cork stamped with my Paper Source stamp, that I LOVE and a lovely glittered clothes pin :) 

Up next, a couple of awards.  Last week I entered THIS card over at THE PLAY DATE CAFE for their weekly color challenge and I was chosen as one of the "Cream in their Coffee"!!!!

Last up, I received this award from PRISCILLA!  Not only is she a papercrafter but she is an AMAZING baker too!  Thanks so much for the award Priscilla!  Now with this award, I have to tell 7 things about myself and pass this on to 15 bloggers :)

So here's seven things about me:

1)  I have one sister and she is five years older than me.
2)  I would rather NOT see a movie at the theater.  (unless it's Bridesmaids with you mom)
3)  I love anything my husband smokes in the smoker.
4)  Sometimes I'll sweep the dust from the wood floor onto the carpet and then vacuum it up so I don't    have to get out the dust pan.  Yes, I'm that lazy at times.
5)  For being a positive person, I worry about everything.
6)  I make a menu out every week for our dinners, based on what's on sale at the grocery store. 
7)  I'm a sucker for Christmas movies.  Even the really bad ones on Lifetime and Hallmark Movie Channel. 

Okay, there are SO many awesome blogs out there that I love I'm going to say... grab this award and pass it on friends!  Spread the wealth!  I'm passing this on to everyone :)

That's it for me this lovely Tuesday.  I'll see you all tomorrow!  Thanks for coming by today!
