Need Your Opinion and I got the Cherry On Top Award!!

Hi everyone!  I noticed that The Cutest Little Blog On The Block is going to delete some backgrounds.  They do have a way I can change it and save it but my question is.....should I be done with the cherries??  I am really wanting to change my blog background and header but I want to know what you all think?  I really value your opinions...Here is a picture of a header I was thinking about using:
Is it too much???  Should I keep the cherries, use this, or go with something else totally different.  Thank you for taking the time to share your opinions.  Now on to the award!! :)

I want to thank my friend Audrey for giving me this award!  She is a great blogging friend and I love her!  Just click on her name to see her blog and all of her creative projects!!
The rules in accepting this award are:

1.  you must thank the person who passed it on to you,
2. copy award to your blog.
3.  list three (3) things you love about yourself,
4.  post a picture that you love on your blog, and
5.  pass award on to five (5) others

Okay so I did the first 2 3 things I love about myself are:
1.  I picked a great husband who supports my crafting habit!
2.  I have never met a dog that I didn't instantly love.
3.  I love being with my family more than anything else.
Now, the picture thing was hard because there are tons of pictures that I love. So I have to post 3.  The first one is funny to my husband and I because he goes to bed really early (because he gets up REALLY early) and I am always trying to keep him up to talk to me! 
The second picture is of my brother and I.  He is a lot taller than I am (well who isnt? ha!) but he is always taking "Long Arm" pictures of us.  This is one of my favorites!

And the last picture is from when the Australia wild fires were going on.  I got this picture in an email and it is just a cool picture!  So Sweet!

And now here is the hard part:  Trying to pick ONLY 5 people to give this award to!  I love all of the blogs that I follow so it was hard to pick.  Here they are, please have a look! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I got the new owl punch from Stampin Up so I will show some projects with that!!  It is my new favorite tool!


  1. I really like your cherry page but that page with the owl is preeetty cute! I think that whatever you change it too it will look beautiful. I had to change mine too because of the same problem.

  2. Wendy - I loved seeing that you have never met a dog that you did not instantly love. That made me SMILE! I am also a big dog person and feel the same way. And I LOVE the koala picture! :-) I love the owl and little birdy header - I think it will be cute!

  3. My blog has a note on it too that the header will disappear...i tried to click on it about a thousand times and I keep getting an error...I am frustrated because I want to keep my same design...anyway I really like your cherries and I think it sets you apart...

  4. What a fun award! Thank you for passing it onto me!! I love the photo of you and your hubby... so sweet! SO I love the cherries.. but owls are totally cool right now! LOL Mine is just plain white!

  5. Ahhh, I love your cherries blog!!! The owl one is really cute, but I don't think it's cuter than this one. However, if you just have to chance it, I'll probably get used to whichever one you decide -- you have good taste!!!!

    Hey, I'm a doggie lover too!!! Have you seen my little Buster yet?!!! My hubby pretty much says the same thing about me because I think they sense you don't fear them, so I get along with most of them; even when they're suppose to be "not so nice". Just goes to show what some people know!

  6. I had the same dilemma with my background. I finally had the blog how I wanted it and then they said I had to up and change it. LOL! Love the cherries, but an owl would be cute. See, I am indesisive!!! Good luck with that one. And you dear heart for the award. I am not at my home computer so I can't post the award yet, but I will! I am so touched that you thought of me. Thank you. P.S> Those are all super cute pics!

  7. Thanks for my first blog award!! I'm very flattered :)
