Leibster Award

I was thrilled to receive this lovely award from the beautiful Melissa at

About the award:  This award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion.
Once you have been nominated,  you award it to blogs that you like that have fewer than 200 followers to encourage new visitors to visit these new blogs.

Rules for Acceptance:
thank the person who gave you the award and link it back to their blog.  Post the award onto your blog.  Give the award to 5 bloggers who you appreciate that have fewer than 200 followers.  Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award.

So, here is my pay it forward time and here are the 5 bloggers whom I have given the award to:

Lizzy C at
This lady is so incredibly talented that she only just makes the criteria for a new blog with the 200 followers just over the hill for her.  I hope this award takes her over the mark.  If you have never seen her work - do yourself a favour and follow this link and Lizzy's blog.

Michelle Wallace at

Michelle fits more into a day than I could dream of and still has time to scrap.  She is on design team for both Helmar products AND Mad About Scrapping.  check out her blog for some wonderful inspiration.

Leah A at
This lady scraps more in a month than I'd scrap in 6 months!  Her layouts always feature something different and she is a fabulous source of inspiration.  She also designs for a number of online sites.

Heather McMahon at
I've been lucky enough to know Heather for many years from a life prior to scrapbooking and am thrilled that her talent has this year been recognised with a Scrapbooking Masters!  Her blog is still relatively new though so go and check out her incredible talent.

and lastly
Scarlett at
I recently discovered Scarlett's blog after following a link from the Scrap FX site.  She is an amazing mixed media artist.  So, if you are a little like me and would like to know more about the whole mixed media scene or you are already into it and want some inspiration from a very talented artist - follow Scarlett's link.

Here is the award that Melissa gave me.

I hope things are well with you!!

  2. Thanks so much for the award Jo! I'm thrilled that you thought of me! And yes we should be able to catch up soon as I just booked my tickets for the Brisbane expo today! Am unsure exactly what my movements will be. Will get in touch closer to the date. I hope you aren't going away the or anything!
