My very first blog award!

I'm so excited to receive my very first blog award!  Stacy at Stacy's Stampin' Spot gave me the Leibster Blog Award.  I was little curious to know what it is and where it came from.  I found out that it started out in Germany (who knew, LOL); according to Google Translate it means "favorite or beloved;" and it is not limited to crafting/papercrafting/rubber stamping, it is for any subject. 
The purpose of the award is to bring attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers, and they then pay it forward by passing the award on to 5 other small blogs.

Here are the Rules of the Liebster Award:
1.  Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them. Thank you Stacy!
2.  Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.
3.  Post the award on your blog.
4.  Bask in the love from the supportive people out there in Blog Land!
5.  Finally and the best rule of all ........... have fun and spread the love!
Here are the five blogs that I have chosen. Click on over to their sites, look around and don't forget to become a Follower.  There are so many great blogs out there, it really was hard to choose.
