A Friendship award...

...from a very lovely lady - Paula

I have never met Paula except here in cyberspace but she has shared her crafting skills and details of her family life with me. We 'chat' often via the UKS forum where we first met. She makes lovely comments about my crafting efforts and has now honoured me by giving me this award. I feel proud to call her my friend.



"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I visit a lot of lovely blogs but these are the eight I have chosen to share my friendship award with...

Annette is probably the reason I love mini-books so much. Hers are always delightful pieces that I would love to be able to replicate. She always has time to help her fellow crafters and is quick to share ideas and tips.

Ruthy was kind enough to give me my very first award back in July. She has shared some beautiful pieces of work on her blog.

Eleni is another lady I have never had the pleasure of meeting in real life as she lives in Athens but along with her beautiful craft work she has also let me have an insight into her way of life - I'm thinking of her a lot these days because of the media coverage of the terrible riots/protests that are happening so close to where she is - take care Eleni.

Caroline is one of only a few bloggers that I know in real life. Her crafting is wonderful and she has become a fellow mini-book adict LOL

Sarah shares some lovely ideas on her blog and she has been kind enough to drop by my blog and leave some super comments. I wish her continuing good luck in her participation in the Scrapbooking Apprentice.

Missy is another lady I have only had the pleasure of 'meeting' here in cyberspace but I love her work and she has been an inspiration - I love flicking through craft mags and finding Missy's work.

Dan is a very generous crafter who shares a new template everyweek with his fellow UKscrappers. I first met Dan when he became a Drama Queen for the Oscars cybercrop earlier this year LOL. Dan is a fabulous stamper and I have learnt so much from the videos that he has posted on his blog - he is the reason I now try more stamping techniques - Thank you Dan.

Cal was so helpful during my very first cybercrop. I really wondered what I had let myself in for but she was always around with her cyber-bacon butties and helpful comments and tips. Without her I would never have learnt about baffies LOL

So there you are, my eight nominated award receivers...............
