My First Awards!

I am so excited!  I have received some awards and I hope I am posting them right.  If I did something wrong, or weird, please let me know:)

The first one is The Irresistibly Sweet Award and it was from two wonderful ladies Cindy from cardcrazeeme53 and Amber from my3escrapbooking.  They are both incredibly talented and I am so honored that they choose to pass their awards on to me!  They have helped me so much with their inspirational comments and technical help. I'm new to blogging and need all the help I can get! LOL!

The rules for the award are the following:
1.) Send a thank you to the person who nominated you and include their link.
2.) To accept this award, answer 7 random facts about yourself.
3.) Pass the award to at least 8 other blog buddies.

The next three awards came from the very talented Amber at my3escrapbooking.  Please stop by and check out her blog!

Here are the rules for the BFB Award:
1.  Post about this award on my blog and link to the person that gave it to me
2.  Pass along to those that visit and leave comments on your blog regularly

Here are the rules for the A Thing of Beauty Award
1. I must share 5 things about myself ( 1 of the listed items must be something about crafting)
2.  Pass the award to 5 other blogs.

The "rules" of this award:
1. Thank the person who sent it to you 
2. Tell 7 things about yourself
3. Send this to 5 fellow versatile bloggers

7 Random facts:

1. Penguins are my favorite animal!  They are so cute, smart and interesting.

2. I have been teaching second grade for four years now.

3. I'm the first college grad in my family. Go Sundevils!

4. I built up about 85% of my Cricut collection at the Michaels $10 cartridge sale and ebay, and I found my Gypsy at Michaels for $50.  I'm proud of this because I never have any awesome finds like these. 

5. I love craft store coupons! If there is a sale, I will be there!

6. I have lots of pattern paper, but I think it's so pretty that I'm scared to use it.  Something that has got to change...

7. I often don't feel like my cards are any good, so it's been so great for me to get positive feedback from blogging friends:)

I am passing these awards onto several people, some of you already have some of these, so please accept  the double nominations ;)

1. Cindy from cardcrazeeme53 
2. Vivi from vivienpapel 
3. Cely from hawaiipaperparty
4. Doris from mybugandmecreate
5. Maria of mariasmerrymakings
6. Cyndy of arcyscraps

Please visit everyone here and take a look at their work.  You will be glad you did :)
