What an HONOUR! 1st AwArD ever...Passing on the LOVE...

Wow! I can't believe that I've been awarded something from a very sweet + new friend/blogger, Gina 2424 . Please visit her GORGEOUS blog called "Lilly*s of London*ish" ! I love her blog...so informative, so inspirational and her banner is absolutely beautiful!!! The award Gina sent to me is called the Brilliante Weblog Premio Award 2008. Not sure who created it but the Magical and Brilliantly Creative Lisa Kettel awarded it to Gina who has awarded it to me...
Here are the rules for the Brilliante Weblog Premio Award 2008:
1) Put the logo on your blog,
2) Add the link of the person who awarded you,
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs,
4) Add links of those to your blog and
5) Leave a message to the nominees on their blogs.
I've only been a blogger for about 3 weeks...and 7 posts later...I am utterly in shock that there is anyone out there reading my blog (besides my sweet sis, Mary Ann) and even thinking that my lil' blog can be on the lines of "Brillancy"...so I am absolutely thrilled and honoured that sweet Gina even thought of me to send me this award. This is one of the reasons why I even started an on-line journal...to find creative and kindred spirits...to learn and share our passions...to find our loves, to create even more beauty...what a connection this blog world is creating for me...for you. So, THANK YOU Gina for such positive encouragement and wonderful support. This award has given me such rays of hope to continue on with my journey to find my passion and to continue documenting this important time of my life...now I'm off to dust off my lil' black book about my favourite blog discoveries so I could list 7 other sweet blogs and pass on the 'love' to them...and to you... Sweet Dreams...xoxo jo ;)
Here are 7 Brilliant Blogs that I have admired from afar for quite some time now. Each, have given me so much inspiration to dream, to believe and to create...Please visit these Beautiful blogs to enjoy, learn and get inspired!
