It's My Brit Awards!!

I hope that you had a great weekend and that the week has started well for you all. I also hope you are feeling strong...this is a LARGE post!! Bear with me and I promise that there is a goodie at the end of it all, lol!!

I have been slow in dealing with the awards that some lovely people have given me, for this I,,,,,I decided to take a leaf out of my good friend Chris's book and have an award ceremony!!! As I'm in UK..I thought I'd have my own Brit I hope you all have on your best frocks and tiara's!!! This is a posh event, there is even a red settle down and get ready to clap all the great people who are getting their "Brit Awards" today!! Now no cat calling, only nice applause please!

As for me, I have on my pearls and diamonds, a haute couture dress and I'm looking oh so grand...I wish!!

The first up is Polly from Angels in My Garden. Polly has a wonderful blog with some really thought inspiring favourite is still the one about her Mama's Dishes..take a look, I'm sure you'll agree. Thank you Polly for doing me the honour of passing this award to me.


The award is presented to bloggers who display consistency in any one or a combination:

1.The blogger manifests exemplary attitude, respecting the nuances that pervades amongst different cultures and beliefs.

2.The blog contents inspire; strives to encourage and offers solutions.

3.There is a clear purpose at the blog; one that fosters a better understanding on Social, Political, Economics, the Arts, Culture and Sciences and Beliefs.

4.The blog is refreshing and creative.

5.The blogger promotes friendship and positive thinking.

The blogger who receives this award will need to perform the following steps:

1.Create a post with a mention and a link to the person who presented the Noblesse Oblige Award.

2.The award conditions must be displayed at the post.

3.Write a short article about what the blog has thus far achieved - preferably citing one or more older posts to support.

4.The blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the award conditions.

5.The blogger must display the award at any location on the blog.

Ok, so now I have to say what my blog has thus far achieved, a difficult one!

I originally started Cen's Loft as a place for scrapbookers and crafters to visit and hopefully get to know me just a little. I hope it has become somewhere that readers feel they are friends, as I have made so many new ones through this wonderful little dot in cyberspace. It has given me a place to share some of my work and put something back into the online community that has given me such pleasure. I love it...and I hope that at least some others do too!!! Lol!!  As far as having achieved anything, I think that's for others to decided if it has done that.

I pass this award to....drum roll please (this is the Brits!!):

Grandmother's Pattern Book, this is a fantastic blog with patterns for knitting from a bye-gone era. It is wonderful!!

The next award I received from the wonderful Chris at Bling-kin-eck...that girl has crafting to die for on her blog!!! Plus this week she has a gorgeous freebie mini kit, Angelic, red and white!! So don't miss it!! Have a look.



Thank you Chris for this wonderful award and for being such a great friend !! Now for the award! It's the Arte y Pico Award...isn't it grand!!

I pass this award to:

Candy at Mermaids Haven, she is one talented lady and I think she is a super star!! Drop by and leave her some love.

Now the next one brings a tear to my I'm not over icing it cause it's the Brits!!! It does really bring a tear to my eye...that wonderful young lady Kat, TragedyScrappinAnne passed my this and she has a soft spot in my it means a lot to me that she thought to pass it my way. Thank you Kat!! Kat's blog is just bulging with brilliant layouts....and some gorgeous freebies too!! So drop by and have a look.



I pass this one to:

Kim from Kim's Scrappin'. Kim is such a lovely lady, with a huge heart, she is special. Her work is lovely and she is so generous in sharing it.

And last...but not least...I have been given the next award by two beautiful people.

The first is the lovely Su, Scrappy Schnooks (her quick pages are legend!) and the second is Christy of At the Creek (her blog keeps me reading for hours, the variety is amazing!).

Thank you ladies for both thinking of me!!


The "rules" of this award are that I must:-
1. Put the logo on your blog or post. (Right click on the logo and save to your own computer.)
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post with the person from whom you received your award.

Now this one needs 10 blogs but I don't think I'll make that many!!!!!

Here goes!! I didn't make it to 10..but some of the people I checked already had the award.

So, it's time to put the red carpet away and wave goodbye to the glitz (big sigh). I did promise you a little goodie and as I always try to keep my it is.

A Little Love - from me to you. I didn't want to do the traditional all pink Valentines kit but something with a more varied use that can be used throughout the year perhaps. This is what I came up with, hopefully a set that some of you can use.


You can download the A Little Love Papers here

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the Elements

Thank you all for your patience in staying with me through this mammoth post!!

Take care and see you tomorrow!!
