Hello, everyone!!!  Happy Wednesday to you all!  And, hello to several more new blogging family-friends!!!  So happy to have you and, if I can find you, I'll be around to visit with you soon!

I got to spend much of the Sunday and the holiday visiting with most of you, and admiring all the beautiful projects you worked on.  I don't think I need to say I was impressed because I always am!!!  You never disappointment me!!!

Unfortunately, I've been tremendously busy yesterday and today, so I've no projects of my own to post! However, I do have a couple of things to share.  First, I received another Butterfly Award from my friend, Bunny Freak.  Thank you so much!!!  Because I've received and passed on this award several times, at this time I'd like to just show Bunny Freak my appreciation for this beautiful award by adding her name to it on my sidebar:
Second, and a total surprise as I'd forgotten this!  I received my "Pay It Forward" gift from Yolie:

Isn't the layout page and the cards she made just beautiful!!!  Thank you so much, Yolie!!!  I love it!!!

To all of you, please visit, these, my wonderful friends by just clicking on their names.  If you haven't visited with them before, you'll find their blogs full of inspiration and talent!

Okay, so the moment as come to announce the winner for my stickers RAK:

Random.org selected #12:  Mary of For The Love Of Art!!!  Congratulations, Mary!!!  Enjoy!!!  You will have until Monday, September 12, by 5 p.m. to claim your stickers!

Last I have to announce, unregrettably and I'm so sorry, KayB did not claim her Paper Stack offered as my blog candy for McVic's Birthday Blog Hop.  Therefore, tomorrow I will raffle it off again.  Please come by once I post to leave a comment to be eligible to win on the post announcing the Paper Stack RAK.  Again, this RAK is open to anyone who leaves a comment.

Thank you so very much for stopping by!!!  I hope to have a project to share with you tomorrow but, as I still have some things to take care of, I can't make a promise; however, I will be here to post the RAK before 5 p.m..  Unfortunately, I can't give a specific time as I'll be on the run so to speak.   I should be back posting and visiting by the early weekend!   So, I'm looking forward to having fun with you then!!!

Hugs, love, and...

I'll be seeing you!

Audrey, you are just too sweet.. I am sad that you are so busy that you don't have time to take a few minutes for yourself to play.. :-( I am keeping you in my prayers.. and what a lovely layout from Yolie. AND I am not surprised that you have received this beautiful award so many times, there aren't too many people around like you.... you are one of a kind...

I wondered if you got my e-mail? I don't know if it goes thru when I reply to your post on my blog, blogger notifies me via e-mail and when I click reply I'm not sure if it goes thru or not. Let me know will you. Shari (cricutrookie)
