My very first blog award :)

I am pleased to say that I received my very first blog award. Sica from Scrap Raptor gave me this award (what a sweetie). You may have noticed that I received the award a little while ago, but I took forever to decide on who I should nominate to receive the award. :)

Here are the rules for this award:
1. Put the award on your blog.
2. Include a link to the person who gave you the award.
3. Nominate 7 or more blogs to receive the award.
4. Leave a message on their blogs letting them know they have an award on your blog.

Here are my nominations:
1. Brownie Scraps - the blog is great with daily freebies for really great digital scrapbooking kits. While you are there, you may as well check out the forum too for some fab challenges and to meet some other scrapaholics!

2. DigiFree - I'm sure everyone already uses this blog but, if not, you SHOULD! This blog uses a nifty little search engine to scour through the digital scrapbooking blogs and automatically find all of the freebies for you. Great blog, and quite an impressive (and fairly accurate) application behind the scenes.

3. Favors With Love - If you are looking for a favor for ANY occasion, then this is the site for you! They have some great items in store and plenty of DIY ideas as well. I am particularly fond of the Fish in a Bag Soap, but am yet to attempt it myself. :)

4. LissaE Designz - Lissa is an extremely talented designer who also owns and runs the Haven Designz site and store. Her blog contains heaps of freebies, discounts, tips, previews and sale information. Great blog and Lissa is so generous that she is even giving away the FULL KIT that was used to design her blog as part of a competition on Haven Designz where you get the kit for free then create a layout for the chance of winning a $20 gift certificate to the store! How generous is that!?!?!?!? The contest has been running all month and currently only 6 layouts have been submitted so you are in with a REALLY good chance if you get a layout done! And... it's really easy to create a layout with the kit because the kit is absolutely gorgeous! Click either of the images to go to the contest in the Haven Designz forum (free registration may be required)

5. JennCk - Jenn is an EXTREMELY talented and creative woman and she often creates fabulous freebie quick pages, templates and the occasional mini-kit.

6. Miss Trish's Digi Designs - Trish is another talented and generous designer who has just started thinking about finding a store to sell her creations. In the meantime, however, she has HEAPS of great stuff for free on her blog.

7. FlutterbyeFaery Designs - Evie is another EXTREMELY talented designer who seems to be able to come up with incredible ideas and create magical kits in no time at all! Her blog is full of her gorgeous creations and loads of freebies including templates, quick pages, mini kits, samplers, paper packs and discount codes.
