Blog Award!

Good evening everyone!  I am now officially married!!  We had a beautiful, small ceremony on a beach in Turks and Caicos.  It was everything we wanted and more and we're so happy that we were able to celebrate with family and some close friends.

When I returned home from my trip and got back into 'blog world' I saw that I was given the Liebster Award from Haven over at Haven's Haven.  What a nice surprise - thank you so much!!

For those that don't know, 'Liebster' is a German word meaning dearest, beloved or favorite and the Liebster Award is sort of a chain letter among bloggers that's intended to showcase exceptional up-and-coming blogs (typically those with 200 or fewer followers).  There's no evaluation committee or formal award process for the Liebster, but in a way it's even nicer - it's recognition that a peer has noticed and appreciated your hard work.
Here are the rules:

1.  Choose 5 up-and-coming blogs with fewer than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.
2.  Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3.  Post the award on your blog.
4.  Link back to the blogs you have given the Liebster to so everyone else can pay them a visit.

So, here are the 5 bloggers I'd like to pass this award on to:

Alissa at Rocky Mountain Paper Crafts
Audrey at Audrey's Cards by Design
Dawn at Deegee Scraps
Megan at Saxey Designs
Melissa at Scrappy MAC Designs

Thanks again Haven!!
