An Owl in the house, an award and some news!

Wow, I didn't blog all weekend thinking I didn't have anything to blog about....I think I was a little wrong!  I kept having to alter my post title to figure out what I wanted to blog about!!!

First my "Full of Possibility" layout that I did for the Little Yellow Bicycle sketch challenge is one of the three finalist!!!  So, if you feel like voting here is a direct link to the blog post  VOTING for the layout that you love, I don't care if it's me!  And when you are over there, check out the honorable mention....she is adorable and quite a good little scrapper in the making!!!!

Here's a wall hanging I did with Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Owl mini album chipboard.  I always have to remind myself that you CAN break up a mini album into pieces and make smaller, altered items!!!
Supplies:  Owl Shape-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker; Pattern Paper-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker (We Are Family collection); Buttons-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Cute as a Button buttons; 
Ribbon-Offray; Pearls-Recollecitons; Adhesive-Fabri-tac 
and Scrapbook Adhesives;Ink-Cat's Eye; hemp cording for hanger 

And I got my very first blog award from another blogger, Emily Leiphart.  She is one AMAZINGLY talented lady and blogger, so I am very honored that she gave this to me!!! She gave this to me in March, and I am just getting around to getting it up.  I met her thru Unity and she is also on the Twinery design team with me!  
I am supposed to tell you eight things about myself....mmm....ok!
1. KLUTZY                                                 
2. Was not into art at all as a child
3. I have no idea what my real hair color is at this point
4. Love to nap, anytime, anywhere!
5. I can talk your ear off on the phone!
6.  Blind as a bat without my contacts or glasses
7.  Scream like a school girl around snakes and mice.
8.  When driving around for work, sing Glee songs at the top of my lungs!

Now I am to pass it on to eight bloggers...ekk...!!!
