My Blog-a-Versary! Who Wants Candy?

Good Morning!

Do you know that my blog-a-versary is only 19 days away?  I can't believe it has been a whole year!  I remember having a discussion with Sherrie at Sherrie Scraps With Passion and telling her that "I didn't think my work was good enough for a blog and I was afraid no one would follow me."  Sherrie was so sweet and she really encouraged me to start my own blog.  Wow!  Not only are all of you following me, I am on two Design Teams!  Delightful Challenges and Pixie Dust Paperie.  I have taken three Copic Marker classes and received my Standard Copic Certification.  I have been a guest designer on 3 Girl Jam and Fresh Brewed Designs and when I asked you gals to send me cards for the Relay for Life fundraiser, you really stepped up and came through for me!  I have made some really good friends this year.  I don't want to name you all because I am afraid I will leave someone out.  I just want you all to know how much it has meant to me to get to know you, your families and to see what fantastic artist you are!  I have learned so much!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  So here we go - CANDY - I was in a scrapbook store shopping, I saw these two magazines and I decided that they would be my giveaway.  I have had so many discussions about organizing scrapbook rooms, I thought these would be really fun to give away.


One is called Creative Spaces and it shows all these really cool scrapbook rooms, the other is called Practical Solutions and it has some really neat ideas for turning items around the house into scrapbook storage, it also has a section on card ideas.  Want them?  Here is how to enter this contest.

1.  You must be a follower of this blog
2.  Place this candy on the sidebar of your blog
3.  I will draw a winner on Friday, June 29th

Good Luck!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs,
