BEAUTY wall hanging piece for Angieb43's swap on youtuve

Hi Ladies,
I just wanted to share with you my BEAUTY piece for Angieb43's wall hanging swap over on youtube and her blog @ Angie's Blog. The challange was a 6x6 chipboard piece decorated using G45 papers, the theme is "What Beauty means to us", and it had to have a photo mat on it. Beauty to me means "Vintage". Vintage is something that is cherished, never goes out of style, and can mean something different to the eye of the beholder. I hope you all enjoy and be sure to check out Angie's blog and youtube channel Angie's YOUTUBE channel.

Here's the link to my video:

An award and paying it forward and 8 things you didn't know about me:

AN AWARD & PAYING IT FORWARD

Hi ladies, I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and Happy New Year. 2011 is going fantastic so far for our family. God is really blessing us and giving us a lot of provision. I'm so excited for what 2011 holds for my family, Creataive Endings, and my friends. I must send out a HUGE thank you and BIG HUGS to Sonia,  The Archiving Angel, for awarding me the fabulous "stylish blog award".

I really find a lot of inpiration in Sonia's blog and I hope you all will check it out. You will enjoy her style, family, scrappy happy creations just like I do.
When you are awarded this blogger award you get to share with your followers 8 things about yourself that they probably don't know. So here it goes:

1. God has called my husband and I to adopt a child.
2. I am amazed at the love that our Heavenly father holds for his children. I have been a Christian for 21 years.
3. My dream is to visit Ireland and Australia and share the word of God.
4. During 2011 I hope to hold a few Crafty Creations classes in my area.
5. I can't fall asleep unless I have my "silky". (A scrap of fabric that is red and silky)
6. I've been to 8 different states and moved 9 times in 7 years.
7. When I sit down to scrap, I always have to have an orange gatorade with me.
8. The longest time I've scrapped at my desk in one day is 9 1/2 hours.

I am going to pay it forward and offer this amazing blogger award to a few ladies that I think are just amazing. These ladies work so hard on their blogs and they are all filled wtih joy, love, inspriation and FUN. Please check them out!!!

Julie (Jules) from The Jule Box
Melanie from Scrappy Mel

Lauren from Lauren's Creative

These ladies are such amazing crafty ladies, mom's, wifes, and some of my sweet friends that I couldn't imagine my creativity to be at it's best without their blogs, friendships and sweet virtual hugs!!!

Have a GREAT Sunday ladies and many many blessings and BIG HUGS!
