AWARD SHOUT OUT!

I have a new bloggy friend, Rebekah @ Life with Kaishon. I was immediately drawn to her blog because it's so pretty, but more importantly, you can tell she adores her family, and loves the Lord! I was reading her latest post, and I was pleasantly surprised when she passed an award on to me. I really liked her intent behind the award. She says to step out of our comfort box and make new bloggy friends! So, that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to pass this out to my newest blog pals, and I want you to tag some of your new friends!

I pass this award to my new bloggers in crime. And please, please forgive me if I left anyone out!!!!

Also, I'm so excited, I did my own button with link box, and it came out pretty good! It was easier than I thought, thanks to the instructions from LoopsDesigns! I already had an idea how to make it because I tried it a few months ago, so thank goodness it wasn't as confusing! If you're interested in making your own I suggest her site!!

I also tweaked my layout. I love having a wider space for my main post and sidebars. Of course, my header doesn't stretch out, but that's okay. I like how I can see more of the fushcia background. Also, this allows me to post bigger pictures! Now all I need is a better camera! LOL

I am too flattered that you passed this award onto me! I love your spirit! Thanks for the button info. I've gotta go check that out since I'm an amateur and made my own makeshift buttons and headers.

KGW said...

BTW.....I am going to borrow your My Award slideshow idea that you have in your sidebar (giving you credit for it of course). Great idea!

Susie said...

Congratulations on your award! I love the slideshow! I think it makes it so much easier to display them all when you get a lot.

I really like what you did with your page! It looks great. I wish I had more time to get on here and mess around and learn more about html. I am clueless about it, so my blog is super simple, LOL.

Have a great weekend, Alicia!

Thank you again Alicia!!! I even went over to LoopDesigns and said thank you too! :o)

PS. I'm not so sure how I feel about your wider design - I cannot see the cute polka dots at all anymore!
