Blog Award

I've got my laptop back tonight. Yey, I'm so happy! I didn't realise how much I could miss a piece of metal.
I just need to catch up on emails now, I've read them all but I still need to reply to a dozen or so.

I received this lovely, sweet award today from my very talented buddy Vicky. Please do bob over and take a look at all her gorgeous cards. Vicky creates the most beautiful and stylish cards and I love her work.

Now for the rules bit:
1. I need to thank the person that gave me the award- Thank you Vicky, very much appreciated x
2. Post the award on my blog.
3.Post 3 things I love about myself.
4.Post a picture I love.
5.Pass the award on to 5 other people.

That's the first two done. So 3 things I love about myself?
1. I love my family and my friends, and they are all a part of what makes me ME.
2. I love to make things, which in turn led me to start my blog (eventually) which opened up a whole new world to me, added lots of new friends and new opportunities.
3. I love my strength!  I've never thought of myself as being a strong person, but I have learned that at the times in my life when I have needed to be strong (or brave?) I have reserves I never realised I possessed

The photograph is when Hal took his black belt at Ju-Juitsu.

Now the very hard bit of listing 5 people to give it to, I know so many sweet ladies!

Thank you again Vicky X
Right, I'm off to bed.
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx
