I've been missing in action! Wanna know why, huh, huh, do ya? :-D I just got home from a week long vacay with my girlies! We went to St. Augustine and then on to Orlando to spend a few days with my BFF Karen, who pampered me royally. My girls and I made some forever memories. :-)

While I was gone, lots happened! Not the least of which is I was awarded a cool blog award by my friend Lolis.

Thank you Lolis, you're so sweet! :-) Now I get to pay it forward, but to only 5 people. How to choose! Well, you know, if you're reading this, then you're IT! :-D Because ALL of my scrappy friends inspire me. So thank you!

Let's see, what else... OH! Paper Whores will host it's first challenge starting July 1st! I'm pretty sure that y'all will like it, so come on over and join in on the fun! :-D

All too soon, it'll be July, and you know what that means... a new calendar page! I used a scraplift challenge from Paper Secrets, but even they haven't seen my creation yet, because you know, it's not July yet! :-D

It is my turn to host the new Creative Cookbooking challenge. Being as how it is officially summer, I thought it would be fun to do a challenge using a recipe that is used primarily used during summer time. In our house, that means Fried Green Tomatoes! YUMMO!!!

All of the new week 3 challenges are up at Ch{all}enge Masters, so be sure to check out those creative divas!

Okay, I think that's all for today. Wishing you all a very scrappy week! Thanks for stopping by! And I want to see your blog awards on those blogs! :-)
