Pawti Gras (Briefly)

These are tags that I did with kits that I covered in more detail in previous posts on this blog.

Diamond Emerald Eyes

House Panther,Miss Diamond,Mardi Gras

For Miss Diamond's layout, I used the Sign of the Gypsy Queen taggers kit from Baby Cakes Scraps. The green beads are from the Fat Tuesday collaboration from Team Kissed by Pix, and the crystal ball is from the Bourban Street taggers kit from Created by Jill.

I love purple and I really love the BCS kit. Hopefully I'll find some other uses for it in the not to distant future.

Zed Monster

Snowshoe Siamese,Mardi Gras

For Zeddie, I went with the Masquerade kit from Farrah's Creations. These were some of the last tags I did in this T-13 series and if you must know...yes, I was saving, what I considered the best kits for last.

I believe both Masquerade and Sign of the Gypsy Queen are available in full and taggers sizes, so if you want to scrap your Mardi Gras memories, you have the option to do that.

Tristan Tabby Cat Longtail

Tabby Cat,Mardi Gras

For Tris' tag I used the Bourbon Street kit from Created by Jill. There was never any question in my mind as who I was going to tag with it, as it just suited my little snuggle buddy. The jester's hat is from the Fat Tuesday collob from Team Kissed by Pix. He's got the kind of personality that would love funny hats, if he could ever get over his distaste for wearing them.


Domestic Mediumhair,Mardi Gras

Royce is a new guest for our T-13 tagging extravaganzas. I went with the SNS Mardi Gras blog train for the scraps, in part because I really like that feathered mask.


Bi-colored Cat,Mardi Gras

Semi related is the tag for Rosie. I used the Mardi Gras kit from Sassy's Imagination to do the tag. She was one of the designers that participated in the SNS blog train, so some of the scraps are similar. I really like this green background however, and I pleased with the way the piece turned out.

The foilcap alpha is from Snowsmoon Designs.


Tabby Cat,Mardi Gras

I was very unhappy in the end, with this tag. What I SHOULD have done, was paint over the emblems on the dabbloons, and then embossed Skittles onto them. Oh well. Hind sight and all that.

The scraps are from the Fat Tuesday collab from Team Kissed by Pix. The alpha is from MT Lane Designs, who's kit we will explore in a bit more detail in another post, and the tag was an add on to the Oopsie Daisy full size Laisez Le Bon Temps Rouler that I didn't buy.

Brandi Gras

One of the nicer surprises I had was the Mardi Gras Mini-kit from Brandi's Creations, which you can download from her blog. While it's just what is says - a mini-kit - it's a very nice one that comes with five papers, two posers and three masks, two frames, a couple buttons and assorted other items.

It took me some fussing with one of the frames, and I didn't quite get it fused onto the cat bed right, but I just love the way this tag for Allie turned out!

Mardi Gras, Birman

The Alpha is from MT Lane Designs. Notably missing in both Snowy's Mardi Gras kit and Brandi's Mini-kit are tags. In this case, I borrowed one from the Mardi Gras kit by Sassy's Imagination.

Since she gave me a couple of posers - posers being the hardest thing for me where Mardi Gras tags are concerned - I made up a couple of tags with them.

Brandi Gras 1

The "tag" or label came from a CU pack from Heartbeatz Creationz. It's a very basic set of labels in a variety of colors. I wasn't going to snag it, but in the end, I did, just so I would have something for those projects were I was too lazy to do my own. You can find them at the HB Boutique, of course.

The background masks that I applied to the papers on both of these tags are from Wee Scots Lass.

This is a taggers size kit, BTW. Brandi does almost exclusively taggers size, in part because she's using dial up and it takes a long time for her to upload full sized.

Brandi Gras 1

The word art was from a template by Chuliss Designz what Digifree found for me.

This tag uses pretty much as the same elements as in the tag for Allie above. It's really a great little pick up for your tagging pleasure! Don't forget to leave Brandi some love if you download it!

Mardi Gras - U.K. Style

Mardi Gras starts on 12th night, or Feast of Three Kings, on December 6th, and ends on Fat Tuesday, which fell this year on February 24th. The following day, Southern Scrapz released her Mardi Gras kit. For a girl that lives in the south, you think she'd get the dates right at least.


I bought it anyway, as I love anything Mardi Gras. I did however draw the line at Oosie Daisy's Laisez Les Bons Temps Rouler, as it's a full size kit broken down into 10 downloads. While I could script it down and use it for tags, I really balked at the download size.

I did buy Snowraven's Mardi Gras kit, which is full size and scripted it down so I could use it to tag. And (amazingly enough) I finally got the tags done!

The kit features four posers from Black Diamond Fantasy, which are not credited in the kit documentation, but which Snowy wrote about on her blog.

Snowraven's Mardi Gras 1

I was really impressed with the quality of the elements in the kit. There's some very unusual pieces and they are all well done. The posers too are quality pieces, and BDF charges substantially less for their tube sets than some other places out there.

The raven in this tag is from Granny Art.

Snowraven's Mardi Gras 2

I love this bit of Mardi Gras word art that came in the kit. Itsn't it fabulous?

Snowraven's Mardi Gras 3

The word art in this tag came from Tracy Drane. I love the little pom-poms in this piece as well. There are a lot of background, but not as many elments as I would have liked to see. Still the quality makes up for the quanity, as there isn't a bad piece in the lot!

Snowraven's Mardi Gras 4

The masks on the poser in both of the last two tags came - in a much larger size - with the kit. They can be used as stand alone elements and would be great emblishements on a full size layout pages. The "glitter" overlay on this by Nips Creations. I'm more glittery on a dark background and really didn't work with the piece, but I liked it better with, then without so it stayed. You all know how much I like glitter!

I was not entirely pleased with the piece I did for Pawti Gras using this kit however.

Persian Cat,Mardi Gras

Sweet Praline is the cat in question, and as Miss Diamond pointed out in the Pawti Gras presentation, she comes with her own mask and is always ready for Carnival. I had a bit of trouble switching gears off of kit creation back to tagging and this was one of the first of the Pawti Gras tags I did, so i probably could have done a better job.

In the end, the presentation was fun and very colorful and Sweet Praline did like her tag. She's featuring it on her blog today as part of Photo Hunt.

You can buy Snowy's Mardi Gras kit at Magickal Scraps. If you've just got back from New Orleans, or have pictures from previous Carnivals that you need to scrap, you'll certainly want to pick up this kit to do your layouts with. It comes with the add-on included.

If your not yet ready to commit, you can pick up the Sampler and play with a bit before you buy the full sized version.

Stargazing Taggers Freebie

This week's Friday Freebie is a great little space themed taggers kit. I can never seem to find scraps to do tags for the boys, so I short of did this with them in mind. Justin picked the color blue and Owen picked uh...the color blue as well. While primarily aimed at boys, there are some elements that will appeal to the girls as well, so you can keep your little space princess happy.

The papers are 800 x 800 pxl and everything is saved to 300 dpi, so it can be used to printing brag book pages, as well as for tags, and as blog sets.

You get 10 papers, 4 cardboard frames (decorated), 4 paper frames, 4 tags, 3 alien flowers, 6 bottle caps, 4 bows, 4 flowers, 4 knot bows, 4 ribbons, 4 ric-rac, 4 star ties, 4 stickers, 4 washer wraps, 2 alien (1 in a spaceship), 2 planets, 2 dragonflies, 2 centipedes, 1 ray gun, 2 traffic signs, 1 rocket ship, 1 space ship, 1 telescope and 1 Tropicana poser by (c)Perfect Posers.

Please remember that by downloading this kit you agree to my terms of use which state, in part that that that you cannot redistribute, rebroadcast, resale, or claim my graphics as your own. That means placing this kit on 4Shares, RapidShare or any other file sharing site for any reason is a strict NO-NO! That constitutes redistribution.

Annie's Design

Annie from Annie's Design is the showcased designer at Creative Scraps this week - month - whatever. I have several kits by her, one which I still need to so some tags with, but I more recently picked up her Cleopatra kit and her St. Patrick's Day kit from Creative Scraps.

The Cleopatra kit was interesting because I've not seen too many Egyptian themed kits. (I'd like to see more!) I do have a bunch of Egyptian Posers however, and being a cat person well...yes, I've got Bast as well.

Cleopatra 1

Cleo, in this tag is from UF Designs, while Bast is from Granny Art. I would have liked to see a bit more Egyptian themed items in the kit, but I'll take what I've got. The feathered fan - one of Incognito's - comes with the kit.

Cleopatra 2

These big silver charm elements have always vexed me, but I hit on the idea of using it like a frame, and it worked quite well. The poser comes with the kit, but is uncredited.

That's one of the things I'm being a stickler on with my kits, is trying to put the credits in there. Granted, I've taken the lazy route and am just creating a list of designers whose commercial use products I've used, and which may or may not have been used in the kit in question, but the big items, like the posers, I feel should be clearly credited.

I also noticed that most of the TOU for the commercial use products say you must change it in some way, but it seems like Annie just dumps some pieces in without actually changing them.

Cleopatra 3

This last poser is from "We're in God's Hands", (c) WIGH, from PSP Tube Depot. The Egyptian pottery in the piece is from an element pack from Krissy's Scraps.

The masks in the last two tags are from Wee Scots Lass.

The next three tags feature the Amy poser from Lacy Clagg. The scraps are from the St. Patrick's Day Kit from Annie's Design, which seems to have been rushed a bit. There's a .pdf rainbow in the kit that is not on a transparent background (but that's easy to fix) and some .tub word art, which is also easy to change over to .png file if you have PSP. It just struck me as being a little sloppy.

St. Patrick's Day 1

I love the gold coins and I like her choice of colors. I probably should have gone with green and gold. ::sigh::

St. Patrick's Day 2

The hat and the pinata are some clever tube items. Given some of the fun St. Patrick's day stuff I have at home, it never occur ed to me to photograph and tube them. Maybe I'll do something to correct that oversight.

St. Patrick's Day 3

The is the above mentioned .pdf rainbow, removed from its white background. I like the little bear! There's also some nice green beer in the kit, which didn't make it into any of these three tags. Since I have to tag out the cats for St. Patrick's Day, maybe I'll leave that for Sir Tristan.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed these. Speaking of kits, with any luck my latest will be out tomorrow. I just need to do tags and bottle caps and makes some modifications to the posers. :)

Ash Wednesday

When Shelly created the angels for Creationz by Jo's Angelic kit, she also released packs of the "Jo-Jo" angels in Red and Black. The black I tagged using CBJ's Fallen Angel kit, this is the red variation.

All the posers are (c) by Kairinakat Kreations, BTW, just so we're clear on the copyright end of things.

Devilish 1

The scraps for the first two tags are from the "Devilish" taggers kit by Amanda Fontaine. The kit was designed as a fundraiser for the Save the Tazmanian Devil fund. The kit is only available until March 1, 2009, and you can find it at I'm a Little

The pitchforks are from Untamed Angel's Heaven & Hell kit.

Devilish 2

The Tazzie Devil clip art is from Digiweb Studios and is from their Australian Animals Pack 2, which was recently released. I'm tempted to do somethng with the Aussie animals, I'm just not sure what yet. In any case, they complimented the project.

Tainted Love 1

These last two tags use scraps from the "Tainted Love" taggers kit by Tizzy's Angel. Kathy created the kit and is selling it for $1.00 at Digital Chaos in an attempt to raise money to play off the vet bills for her cat Ash, who was horriblibly mauled by a dog early last year.

The Helloween alpha in the first tag is from Designs by Crazy Diamond. There is some freebie word art that goes with the kit that you can also download at DC.

Tainted Love 2

The bloody love charm is not part of the word art. It's included in the main kit. Kathy said this isn't her best effort, but it's substantially better than my best effort, so...

The heart shaped candle is from Osa Honey.

I finished up the T13: Pawti Gras cat project last night, so I can go back to working on my kit. I did find some CU robot posers to include in the kit, which I will (hopefully) have ready to go - if not by Friday - than at least by this weekend sometime.

A little Irish Charm would appear that United Scraps 4 Taggers was the second coming of Taggers Scraps. They've closed their "doors", Bittersweet has removed her blog and according to posts on some of the designers blogs, owes money to quite a few of them.

The digi-scrap world contintues to fascinate me with all the comings and goings.

I'm doing Mardi Gras cats this week for Miss Diamond's T-13 post, but taking just a little break, here's some St. Patrick Day tags using the new "Irish Charm" taggers kit from Krissy's Scraps. This pretty much is a clip art kit and yes, she's using same clip art from Digiweb Studios that everyone else has. The only original point was the inclusion of some green why didn't I think of that. LOL!

The Amy poser in all three tags is from Lacy Clagg. While this is a PTU tube, it was one that we got for free for buying from the LCTS in December.

Irish Charm 1

Irish Charm 2

Irish Charm 3

The Satin Gold alpha is from Free Digital Scrapbooking. You know I had to get one in there with the green beer!

While I generally hang on to PTU kits, some of FTU Mardi Gras ones going to be deleted from my drive very shortly. Their not worth the disk space their taking up. And despite the number of St. Patrick's Day kits I've amassed, I'm still snagging them. But then, I always was a sucker for both Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day.

Down on Bourbon Street

Mardi Gras is tomorrow - or technically, it ends tomorrow after beginning on 12th night.

Carnival is an important celebration in most of Europe, except in Ireland and the United Kingdom where the festival is called "shrovetide" ending on Shrove Tuesday, and pancakes are the tradition.

Jay, from Heartbeatz Creationz is from the UK, so needless to say, she doesn't have a Mardi Gras kit out, but I felt her Grunge Love kit would actually do well as a Mardi Gras kit and I wasn't mistaken. The colors are largely right, you just need to add in some green and gold.

Party Time 1

I recolored some of the elements to give us the green and added gold glitter to the rub on for the gold, so about the only thing added was the name and the word art. The Scripted Jewels alpha is a freebie from Bizee 1 Digi-Arts.

The Illustrated Lady is from Perfect Posers. She's one of the posers that Photobucket had problems with, so I've moved her over to my private server. I also set my account to private, as I think someone has been going through and reporting images they don't like. I don't think that Photobucket has the time to go through each album one by one to see that they comply to their TOS.

Party Time 2

Needless to say, Mardi Gras is a bit more fun than Pancake Tuesday. The "mask" element was a CU freebie from Kissed by Pix, recolored gold. The word art template was also a freebie. Part of the problem with stashing things on my private server is I don't get to tag or leave notes, so I don't know off hand who I got it from, only that I got it off Digi-free.

Bourbon Street

Also available at Heartbeatz Creationz is the Bourbon Street kit from Created by Jill. I had a lot of fun with this kit, which really does capture the spirit of the New Orleans' Mardi Gras celebrations. The Black Butterfly Fae poser that I used in all three tags is (c) by Lacy Clagg.

Bourbon Street

If there's a disappointing aspect to this kit, it's the rather plain masks. Mardi Gras has a rich tradition of masquerade, which does not come through with mask elements - as they are - in the kit. However, there are feathers and other elements in the kit that you can use to spruce them up, as I did with this mask.

Bourbon Street

I used one of Cameron's layer masks to achieve the torn paper effect on this tag. I rather liked what Jill did with her Voodoo Dolls, which are also available separately for Commercial use.

Spaced Out

Spaceship Parking

Ginger wanted to make sure I was working on a new kit - and I am. This started out as being "only a few flairs" but the papers turned out so well That I expanded the scope of the project. I bet she's knows some kids that would really dig this kit. :)

The spaceship in this tag is from Gail at Aussie Scrap Design and is not going to be included in the kit (although I suppose I could ask her permission). It will be still be quite fun in any case.

I had hoped to have it done by Friday, but Photobucket decided to delete some of my images as offensive - hah - and so I'm going to have to find and restore them. I'll stash them on my private website space, where no one can complain. I also need to do my Mardi Gras T-13 this week for Miss Diamond's blog, so...

It wouldn't surprise me to find out that the Christain Co-olition and reported my blog as offensive either. But that's okay, I will then join the ranks of Chaos Priestess and Gothic Inspirations as having drawn the ire of the "born agains". LOL!

My Dark Secret

You'd think after creating a whole St. Patrick's Day kit I'd have had enough, but no... I still wanted to do St. Patrick's Day tags.

I made myself stop however, and turned my attention to the new "My Dark Secret" mega-taggers kit from Scraps by j0esWife. When "Possum Kingdom" by the Toadies, first came out, I was working radio as a D.J. for WOZN down in the Florida Keys. Like everyone else, I thought was a Vampire song and I still think it has very vampiric overtones.

Lisa Umbarger, bassist for the band said, "They're just these silly stories he's (guitarist Todd Lewis) heard his family tell. Like 'Tyler' and 'Possum Kingdom' are just like stories...In Texas, there's just this big storytelling thing - whenever your family gets together, they sit and talk and tell all these stories. 'Possum Kingdom' is a ghost story."

Lewis said jokingly "Possum Kingdom is a lake. One of the ten best fishin' spots in the U.S. Is it about a ghost or vampire at the lake? I don't know."

"It's not about vampires," Umbarger insists. "Even though we have a big underground vampire following in Florida. They come with their teeth and everything. I'm not lying about that, that's a real story. They'll show up and you'll be talking to someone, and they'll smile and it's like, 'Jesus Christ! You've got fangs!' And they're like, 'Yeah. It's a vampire thing.' So we have this big vampire underground following, and 'Possum Kingdom' has kind of stirred it up."

"It's just a story I heard long ago; it's just a really cool, eerie lake, and some stuff I heard and some stuff I just make up. I tend to do that," Lewis explains about the watering hole where his family used to hang out and barbecue. "They dammed up this big river up there, and it's got all these spooky names like Hell's Gate. It's really cool."

As you can tell, I'm not the only one who thought it had vampiric overtones and well, Tanya agrees with me.

The mega-kit comes with four of Untamed Angel's Goth Posers and aside from over 50 papers and a ton of element, also has a Twilight-themed add on included.

But let's do the Goth first...

My Dark Secret

all of the mask are from Wee Scots Lass. I forgot that Tanya does large papers - 1000 px by 1000 px, and so I forgot to resize this before I applied it to my canvas. So it's a bit overlarge, but it ended up looking good, in a odd sort of way. There's also a bunch of frames to choose from...I'm sure you can find something you'll like.

I had been playing with that butterfly for inclusion into my kit and didn't like the way it turned out. It appears that Tanya got the same results, so perhaps I shouldn't feel so bad. I'm going to try a different attack plan the next time I attempt to use that butterfly.

My Dark Secret

This time I resized the background before I started working. The Silver Twilight Alpha is from Amber Gray Designs. After fighting with adding my name to a tag last night using alpha, I got smart and did the name in a separate canvas, merged it down and then added it to the piece, so it would lined up correctly.

I do so love the hair on this girl, if I saw anyone in real life with hair like this, I'd doubt that the hair was real.

My Dark Secret

I do so like the way this one turned out, and might use it as my sig for a while on Jay's forum. The chains are from Bluedream Designs and the heartlock and key are from the Maltese Scrapper. Bonnie doesn't put terms on her stuff, so I need to find out if I can re-use that piece - which she by request - in a kit sometime.

I'd not planned on doing a goth kit, but I just might, as I have enough ideas about where I'd want to go with it.

My Dark Secret

The Twilight add on includes a coffin, some word art flairs that are vaguely Twilight and some word art heart charms. It's not a strong Twilight statement but it's there for the fans of the series.

The "Twilightish" poser is from Bit'N'Bobs. I have no idea if Julie plans on a Bella poser or not. She does say it's her attempt at an Edward, and she's not sure how successful she was.

The rose silhouette did not come glittered. I added the glitter myself. Ditto for the next tag which is sort of strange departure from the kit as a whole.

My Dark Secret

So, say your tagging along in your little heart of darkness and suddenly your daughter walks into the room and demands a pony.

No problem. The add on includes this cute little doll and several of the "My Little Pony" graphics so you can keep her happy. Gothic kids tags, what an idea!

(In retrospect, "My Little Pony" would not be hard to do, I'd just be concerned about copyright issues with Hasbro.)

Irish Eyes - Tagger Size

Friday Freebie!!! How unoriginal is that? Hopefully this kit is a little bit more original. I did use some of the Heavenly Taggerz clip art which quite a few designers used, but I tried to use it in more original ways and make it a bit more fun.

Much thanks to UFDesigns for granting me the right to include one of their posers in the kit.

Well, I am putting the finishing touches on my "Irish Eyes" kit and should have it for you tomorrow. I just want to add some clips and some bottle caps. Everything else is finished. There are 15 papers and over 30 elements, including a poser.

In the meantime, Creationz by Jo released a very lovely Irish themed kit called Eire, which I took one look at and absolutely had to have. My computer is getting into a space crunch, so I really need to start being a tad bit more selective about what I'm buying. Either that or add on the old hard drive, which I might try doing this weekend.

The posers in these tags are from Perfect Posers and are the Fairy Pack 2. I only got them because - well- the outfits are perfect for St. Patrick's Day. They are not in the Paradise4Scrappers store, you have to get them at Aussie Scrap (and $6.50 for four is extremely overpriced to my mind for posers. However...)


I love the clover sprig as well as some of the elements in this pack. I've not seen them in any of the stores, but they're fabulous. The colors are really nice as well. Monday or Tuesday I decided I hated the pallet I was working with, but that's probably going to the normal - you get sick of using the same five colors over and over.


I was going to use the Celtic kit I have from Kissed by Cari for a blog layout, but I may rethink that position. Then again, I need to do a layout for Miss Diamond too, although I was thinking of using my own kit for that. The one thing I didn't like it the horseshoe is upside down....all the luck will run out!


I like the harp. I have a lot of glitter in my kit, but not so much with the jewels. Still, it should be blingy enough to satisfy. The arch in Jo's kit is also nice. I have nothing like that but ahhh...she does not have Squirrel O'Malley!


I believe all the masks I used on these tags were from Wee Scots Lass. Jo has no tags in the kit, which left me at a slight loss. Anyway, it's a beautiful enough kit if you Irish or you love things Irish to make it worth the purchase price. It's a little on the small side, but the quality of the elements make up for it.

You can find the Eire kit in all of Jo's stores.

Kate, the Urban Mermaid, gave me the the amazing artist award. If you really want to see some amazing art, check out Kate's blog because all her kits qualify as art!

Amazing Artist Award

I'm not sure - exactly what the rules fro this are, except you are supposed to pass it on to five other blogs.

So five blogs (besides UMD) that I think deserve an Amazing Artist award are:

Lynne at Baby Cakes Scraps. I'd love to know how to blend backgrounds the way she does;
Helly at Designs by Helly. All of her stuff is just incredible;
Yarrow at Fall3n Angel. I have all her kits and I love them one and all;
Farrah at Farrah's Creations, who does some truly amazing work, and
Jo at Creationz by Jo (of course) because I love all the stuff she does as well.

Thank you ladies for some really wonderful kits!

I think that catches me up on awards now. Another things I've been really bad about is blinkies, but I made a stab at updating them yesterday. If I don't have your blinkie up, and I should, please hit me over the head with a piece of wood and let me know. Somethings, a good swift kick in the back end is the only thing that gets me motivated!

A plague of angels and awards

I keep getting notices that people have subscribe to my Photobucket albums. I guess it's nice to know that my artwork it appreciated. The only problem is, all of them have private albums and you know...I'm a bit curious as to who all these people are and what they like.

In any case...

I got the Angelic kit from Creationz by Jo when it first came out and I just haven't had the chance to play with it until this last weekend. I was very pleased with it, and would like to do several more tags, sometime when I get a few free moments.

The first tag uses one of three specially commissioned posers that came with the kit, which were done by Kairinakat Kreations. She did a gorgeous job with them!

Angelic 1

This is one of the reasons I want to go back and play with the kit some more, so I can use the other two. But for the remaining tags in this set, I went with some new posers I obtained from RJ at Poser Emporium.

Angelic 2

I had found Poser Emporium via Lassie's Designs - she had some posers from Medi on her Advent Calender page and the copyright with them lead me to Poser Emporium and RJ's work. You can also find Medi's work at the PSP Tube Depot along with some of Lassie's Designs.

Angelic 3

I snagged all the tubes that were stashed in the archive folder, so you'll be seeing more of RJ's work in the (hopefully near) future.

This was also another set of tags in which I played around with adding the Digicats watermark to tags or in this case - journaling labels that were included with the kit. The silver alpha that I used in this tag and in the tag above is courtesy of Crazed's Creations.

I love that cloud, BTW, it's just beautiful!

Angelic 4

I could of have stayed with this one a lot longer. (The "white Christmas" alpha on the tag is from Delicious Scraps.)

Strangely, creating kits is almost as addicting as tagging and I'm already planning a new kit to follow after I finish up the St. Patty's Day one. And not the easter one either!

Stay tuned, lots more coming up...

Awards and lots of 'em! Sarah at CWD Scraps as given me the "Olha que blog Maneiro!" award which I think translates over to "This blog is cool" or something like that.

Ginger at Ginger's House :) & Bonnie at the Maltese Scrapper (who might have them already),
Nett's Mess on the net a.k.a. Disasterpiece Studio (whose blog is a real hoot!),
Deb at Deb's Designs, whose got some very nice commercial use templates I've been enjoying,
Shelly at KairinaKat Kreations, who sucks at updating her blog,
Melisa at Melisa's Scraps, who's got some really great kits,
and Missy at Scraps with Attitude, because I really love all the stuff she comes up with.

Please enjoy your plague of awards!

* Again, almost everyone has these, so I'm changing the rules. Heh!
