Wow, I lose internet access for several days and look what happens while I'm off-line...Kerry of nominated me for the Kreative Blogger Award. Now how cool is that? Especially since I am quite the newbie blogger. THANKS KERRY!
Now there seems to be several expectations placed on this award, those being:
* Thank the sender for nominating you.
* Include a link to the person's blog who nominated you.
* Copy the logo onto your blog.
* List 7 interesting facts about yourself.
* Nominate 7 more Kreativ Bloggers
* List links on your website
* Leave a message on their blogs letting them know they've been nominated.

Who am I really? Have I done something interesting you might not already know about? Hmmm, let's see. Did you know...

1. My first paying job was scooping ice cream and designing party cakes for Baskin & Robbins Ice Cream parlor. I made a whopping $1.65/hour.

2. I parachuted out of a plane when I was just 18 years old. I came home for the weekend and did it without telling my parents til afterwards, because I didn't think they'd let me.

3. I was robbed at gunpoint TWICE when I worked as a cashier at Safeway when I was a college student.

4. I went to Egypt and climbed to the top of the pyramids when I was 20 years old.

5. I told my husband when I met him that if we chose to have children I'd have twins. Six years later we had twin boys born during a blue moon with snow falling.

6. In 35 years I've only owned 3 cars: a Ford Pinto (13 years), a Honda Civic (13 years) and now a Mazda MPV van (9 years and counting).

7. I once went to Bali for 21 days to assist with a seminar on only 4 days notice and I had to secure a passport in that time. I didn't even realize they spoke a different language until I did a crash course in Indonesian on the plane.

Enough tidbits about me, now for the fun part--nominating other bloggers! If I pick someone who has already been nominated please feel free not to repeat the steps. Blogging should be fun not a chore. I enthusiastically nominate:

1. Her Photoshop skills just leave me with my mouth open, and she is so helpful and fun.

2. Who can't help but be drawn to someone who adopts 4 kids at once and still manages to keep her sense of humor and finds time to scrap?

3. Kat is an avid scrapper and currently preparing her Christmas album which I'm just not organized enough to do yet, so I'm in awe of her.

4. Jane likes color on her layouts and is great about scrapping pages I never think to do like beautiful fall days.

5. Deanna is grandmother to 14! Her daily LO's document her grandkids days and you'll usually find a bird on her page---her signature mark.

6. Janelle along with Kerry just joined the new Creative Team at Two Peas in a Bucket Check out her awesome layouts in the digital gallery.

7. Jennifer Martakis, another main player at Two Peas in a Bucket, is flooding the market with great new templates and digi-scrap kits. This is one very creative and busy lady.

Now I'm off to let them know. Happy blogging everyone.
