So I am obviously a big dork when it comes to this blogging stuff! Denice was awarded with this blog award, and she then had to nominate others for it. I was one of them, although I suspect it's more because I sent her Chocolatini than it was because of my actual blog. :)

Because I'm a complete dork, I had NO idea that I was actually supposed to put this award on *my* blog and then nominate others. The big test was figuring out how to actually put this award-thing on my blog. Clearly I overcame that obstacle, so now to the rest of it. I have to list six things I value, six things I don't value, and then nominate 6 other bloggers for this award.

Seriously, this is WAY too much pressure on a Monday morning!

Things I value:
1. My family!
2. My friends!
3. My health!
4. My heart, both physically and emotionally. It's never let me down!
5. My faith!
6. Time... there's just never enough!

Things I do not value:
1. Snobbishness
2. Excuses
3. Irresponsible parenting
4. Superiority
5. Mushrooms
6. Rudeness

My six receivers are:
1. Anne
2. Aaron
3. Lisa (who doesn't have to respond because she just received an award!)
4. Lynn? (I'm assuming this is her name!)
5. Kathi (again, she was just nominated, but her work is SO INSPIRING!!!)
6. Alicia

It was hard to choose just six, because there are SO MANY out there that simply inspire me!!! And yes, I may be "cheating" because I'm choosing two blogs that have recently been nominated, but honestly, go look at them. You WILL be inspired! These ladies are BEYOND creative!

I'm off to each site to let them know they were nominated!!!

Another Blue's Clues/First Birthday Layout

Kacy will soon be four, and here I am, working on her FIRST birthday. We did take a LOT of pictures, but still.... I finally have the main ones scrapped. The others are more action shots of family and friends. I WILL get them done, but I'm happy with what I've completed!

The page on the left was done two months ago, but I finished the one on the right yesterday at the all-day crop. I always do a 2-page layout, and I can't believe it too this long to finish the other half! But finished it is! :)

A quick card...

As you know, I send out cards to my top ten team members who had the highest sales. Here is the card I mailed out for September sales...

I just LOVE this CTMH stamp set! I also used a saying from the September Word Puzzle set.

Baptism Layouts!

We had our monthly all-day crop yesterday, and I was SO excited to go!!! I haven't been creative at all this month. I did my polka dot layout and a card since my last all-day crop.

In my defense, I was on vacation for a week, and I was also sick for this past week. But that's no excuse, and I know it. I don't know what it was, but I hope it's over!

It is a shame that I don't actually get more finished at these all-day crops, but something is better than nothing, right? :)

I did a few things yesterday. Kacy was baptized almost two years ago, and those layouts are finally complete...

While I was at it, I also did a layout for my niece's baptism...
