My lucky day!

I have become quite a fan of Suzanne Quillen and her DIY Challenge on the Divine Scrapbooking blog. The idea is to take a layout by a celebrated scrapbooker and use the elements to design your own page - but not a direct scraplift. This was her second challenge and I won. What did I win? The knowledge that I can follow direction :) Woohoo. This was very tough, going so completely out of my comfort zone, but I like the results. What do you think?

AND

My fellow blogger, and one who provides me with a great deal of inspiration, Jack over at Slightly Off-Center, has bestowed upon me the "When Life Gives You Lemons" award:

which I gratefully accept!

Rules for the Lemonade Award:
  1. Post the logo on your blog.
  2. Nominate blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.
  3. Link to the nominees within your blog post.
  4. Notify the recipients of the award by commenting on their blog.
  5. Share the love and link back to the person from whom you received your award.
Many blogs come to mind - I just counted and it looks like I have 148 in my reader (*eek* when did that happen?) - and many would qualify to receive this award, I'm all about attitude and gratitude! But I will keep this list a short one:

The Kreative Life with Kyla
Sherry over at It's Just Me ... and my coffee!
Don Mills Diva - Don't know her name, but LOVE her blog - and attitude!

Happy weekend everyone. I'm told good things come in 3's so I'm hoping the third piece of good news today is that Cole's team WINS their first game of the hockey finals. Fingers crossed!

Love your page, Lee! And I'm so glad you posted Suzanne's new blog. I've been a follower of her cooking blog for about a year but had no idea she had this one, too. Thanks!
