Scrap for Help and an Award

Hi everyone :)
Life has been going so fast lately, so much to do and so much plan for, not enough hours in the day to get all I want done but I have been sneakily enjoying creating this week :))) Don't you love those weeks!

Now on to a scrappy share.....

This month at Scrap For Help the challenge is to use CARDBOARD. All rules and details can be found on the blog.

Here is my example.

Your new bike.....

Loads of Prima on this layout....

Now you probably have all heard of the "Liebster Blog" Award....Well over the last couple of weeks I have been lucky enough to receive two awards from a couple of my favourite scrappers!

Thank you so much ladies, you have made my day!

The idea behind the award is to spread the love, interest and knowledge from one small blog ( under 200 followers ) to other small blogs.
To accept the award you must;

1. Link back to the person who gave it to you & thank them.
 2.Post the award to your blog.
3. Give the award to 5 people ( blogs less than 200 followers ) that you enjoy visiting and who inspire you.
 4. Leave a comment for these people to let them know how much you appreciate them.

So because I have 2 awards, I am going to give pass this out to 10 lucky ladies who I think are truely deserving of this award.  They all inspire me in so many different ways.  If you get a chance, please go and visit them :))

So in no particular order here are some of the ladies I love to visit....

And just to finish this off....Riley turned 5 last Friday and here are a couple cute photos of my little boy!

Love this boy so much :))) xxx

And the rocket cake I made...

Have a beautiful weekend :)))
