A little bit of Awesome

Hi I’m checking in to share with you a little bit of awesome:


First, I was nominated for a Liebster Blog Award by the very talented Mayuri of the blog Candles In The Garden.  Thank you so very much Mayuri!  The Liebster Blog Award rules vary but are usually given to favorite blogs or bloggers with 200 followers or less.  In turn, I can give this award to five other bloggers who inspire me.  There are so many who inspire me, but for now, I will focus on a few.  They are:

So to all of you — you truly rock 🙂

I created a fun birthday card featured in the October edition of Life. Paper. Scrapbook. Here is a direct link to the October Issue.

This is the card I created:


The sentiment is a verse from one of my favorite songs, Overjoyed by Stevie Wonder.  When I hear that song, I “see” ocean, blue skies and clouds.

Watching too much Home and Garden TV (HGTV) helped with coordinating the different patterned papers.  The interior designer usually advises the client to pick an inspiration piece and design around it. Following that advice, I used the light blue patterned paper to pick patterned papers for the frame and the cloud.  I love love the anchor pattern, from Glitz’s Uncharted Waters line.

So, there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by!! xo- Tyra
