Blog Award! [insert beauty queen wave & shocked face here] :)

Angie over at Creative Inkspirations has given me a blog award! She said that I was "something else" and that checking my blog was "an adventure" due to my humor... :) How sweet is that?! Thanks, Angie!!

So now, I have to pick five blogs that inspire me! There are SO MANY talented people out there that I just couldn't narrow it down, so I am going to close my eyes and point to five of my favorite online bookmarks (is that bad?!).


[closing eyes and pointing...]

The first is Kim. I love her style... clean, layered, and detailed; plus, she also posts some awesome recipes that I would like to eventually try (you know, if I actually COOKED)!
Next, Sarah: Sarah is a 'Jill-of-all-trades'!! Her craftiness is not just bound to paper, and the linky is for her all-crafts blog... great stuff from paper to felting to quilting... fun stuff!
Joan is a total crack-up! Even if she didn't have all of her lovely creations on her blog, I would visit anyway just for a good dose of laughing out loud (her 'Dear Paperlicious' posts and dialogues with Mr. DP, alone are worth the trip!!).
Aija's work is simply amazing! She is from Finland and her blog posts are also in English. Her watercoloring is just fantastic... I can't even describe it! She has a very 'scrappy' style with a lot of embellishing.
Mel has the BEST tutorials! She also has awesome link lists to everything imaginable! Her work is awesome and she branches out to all kinds of papercrafting projects... really beautiful stuff.

Thanks for all of the inspiration, ladies! Thank you for making the world a prettier place!
