I've been tagged!

I was just tagged by my good friends Tricia and Cheri over at the Shack. This is one I haven't seen before. It's called the middle-name game and here are the rules:

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)

So - here are my answers:

My middle name is MELINDA

M- makes the beds every morning without fail (before I leave for work)
E- early riser (no later than 5 AM)
L- love Italian food
I- I love coffee.....but only really Starbucks.
N- neat freak
D- doughnut lover
A- always thinking about scrappy ideas

Have fun with this! I'm looking forward to reading everyone's answers! And of course I get to tag 7 I tag Kim, Erin, NancyG, Marcene, Tracey, Michelle, and Kelly.

1. This just all came together perfectly and it has lots of my favorite color orange.

2 One of my all time favorite lines of Cosmo Cricket and I love how the filmstrip turned out.

3. This was such a fun challenge to use the cliche "Go out on a limb"...and I love those handstitched swirls and the owl.

4. This just may be my favorite series of photos we've ever taken...nuff said.

5. This was such a fun project using one of my favorite lines of Sassafras Lass.

6. This one brought it all home to me about why I scrapbook...I love the fact that I was able to actually incorporate my grandfather's music with his handwriting.

7. This was just a fun one to do using only cardstock.

8. I love the distressed, vintage feel to this the photo..and one of my favorite titles.

9. I really, really worked hard on this one!
