Award, DT call & a Digi- Page!

I am soooooooooooooo , sooooooooo bad. I got an awesome award from a sweet, sweet blogger bud a while back and never got to posting it.
What better time than now, hey?
 Spread some seasonal joy!! Woo hoo!
This is from Stacie from All things Crafty
Thanks girl, I LOVE IT! 


Now for some rulz!! I HATE rulz, but they are what they are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award DONE
2. Share 8 things about yourself  BELOW
3. Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that you have recently discovered BELOW
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award IF I REMEMBER

8 things about me:
1. I speak my mind. Have you ever watched Private Practice where they tell the 'brain surgeon girl'  to "filter her thoughts before she speaks"....well that's what I need to do sometimes.
2. (i'm sure I've said this before, but) I only have a handful of close friends (I prefer quality to quantity)
3. My BFF is the Prairie Fairy
4. I have a great husband, who tolerates every aspect of me, & don't acknowledge him enough!
5. I am currently working on teaching myself to color with distress inks  (oooooooooooo I know)
6. I live by "Everything happens for a reason". (good or bad)
7. I am a happy drunk (whenever I find the time to pound a few back)
8. My children are my EVERYTHING; even when they drive me crazy!

8 bloggers:

*******************************************
Now for the DT call:
It is happening over at Bizzy Becs.
She is looking for 2 more Blue Butterfly Designers.
Hop on over there to get all the details & get your linky in for the application process!

*********************************
and finally....................

A Digi-Scrapbook page to share!

I have had the Creative Memories Digital Scrapbooking- Storybook Creator 3.0 installed on my computer for some time, but always seem to forget about it, so when the Prairie Fairy said she wanted to start showcasing her PNG files onto Digital Scrapbook pages, at first I was a little stunned (again, because I completely forgot I had the program-LOL), then realized I could starts showcasing this for her!

If anyone else does digital/traditional scrapbooking & knows some good challenges for me to enter into, let me know! I hope to start doing more of these in the new year.

I used a photo of my son & daughter sledding down the hill in our backyard....taken this winter. Yup, we had enough snow (3 weeks ago) to make a hill for them. And it continues to snow today !

I used a base paper from the Primary Christmas Digital Additions paper pack & put a Winter Solstice Digital overlay overtop. I used snowflakes & the sentiment from the Candy Cane Digital Kit.
I then added the image The Boys 'r' Sledding from Prairie Fairy Designs .



I am entering my scrapbook page into the following challenges:
Wee Memories- colors of the season
All Sorts- Free & Easy- anything goes
Sew Many Challenges- winter project
Pollycraft Mondays- snowy scene
TPE- winter wonderland
Karber Weekly- anything goes
ColorQ- ruby red, kiwi kiss, bermuda baby, chocolate chip & white



((I'll be back at a later date with a coloring explanation of the digi image in photoshop, for those of you who are interested! ))

PS- I have a mini blog candy at the top of my blog until Dec 31.
