Why thank you lovely readers!
What a lovely happy email I had last week. The lovely Chantalle has passed on the Liebster Award to me, which is a bit spesh... and then another from the (also lovely) Dot! Thanks so much girls... it's nice to know people like my little blog. :)
The Liebster Award is kind of like a pass-it-on blog hopping encouragement thing* to give a shout out to other blogs that you love, and help your readers discover new blogs and new inspiration!
I've chosen all these lovely ladies because they all have a very distinctive scrappy style and a definite personality to their layouts. I love it when you can look at a page not knowing whose it is, but be 99% sure it was created by a particular person because of their strong style. :)
So in no particular order, prepare to discover new awesomeness...
Love this girl - if there was ever anyone who totally embodies 'zest for life' it's Lisa! xo
I met this lovely lady at Lou Nelson's class last year and I love her splattery-painty-mixed media style!
Kim you are the queen of perfect watercolour backgrounds! And your layout photography skills are awesome :)
Love Anne's work and her patience and attention to detail, and all that amazing stitching!!
I pretty much credit Ashli as the one who inspired a turning point in my scrap style. You can pretty much look at any of my blog posts prior to about September 2012 and see the difference. There is pre-September shittiness and then post-September confidence - I finally found my own style and stopped trying to achieve the kind of results other scrappers could get but I could never quite manage. (You know - straight lines - shabby prettiness - sparkly girly blingy stuff - I admire these things but they're just not me!). So thank you Ashli for helping me find my mojo! xo
*The idea is that it's awarded to blogs that have fewer than 200 followers to encourage new visitors. Once you've been nominated, you award it to 5 other bloggers who you appreciate, that have fewer than 200 followers. Leave them a comment on their blogs to let them know that you have given them this award.
**Technically Ashli has more than 200 followers. I don't care, she's on my list anyway because she is amaze-balls.
