Some Of My Favorite Creations To Date

Saturday, March 28, 2009


~~~~~~ Attention....The blog candy give away is now closed. The winner was Jacilynn~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello All!
I finally think I have got my blog looking pretty good so I want to show it off! LOL!
I am giving away some pretty awesome blog candy ...if I say so myself! I went shopping and found this really cute 12" by 12" glitter paper stack by "The Paper Studio" and some bling that I thought matched it perfectly. There are 2 packages of "K&CoMPANY" glittered and popped butterflies, a package of half pearls and gemstones both by "The Paper Studio" and 2 rolls of satin ribbon from "The Robert Stanley Collection." I think you have just about everything you need here to make some awesome cards or scrapbook pages! You can click on the pictures for a better look.
The catch you ask? You have to do a little work.

1) Become a follower of my blog...if you aren't already.
2) Mention my blog candy on your blog either in your sidebar or in a post, and add a link back to my page. If you would like my blog button for your page, email me and I will gladly send you the HTML code!
3) Come back here and comment under this post so I can go check out your blog to see your posting.
That is it. Easy as one, two, three!
I will have an online random picker draw names on Easter morning @ 8am Central time.
I will post the winner on my blog and notify by email or on your blog.

Thanks for helping me spread the word about my blog and good luck to you all!

I also love all kinds of crafts, but mainly do needlework, porcelain, crocheting, embroirdery, decoupage...

Would love to be part of this candy.

Your "work" area is SPOTLESS!!! I also love sunflowers...

Thank you.
