Birthday/Blogaversary Candy

Pretty amazing that it's been almost a year since I started blogging, and just over a year since I signed up with CTMH. It's been a WONDERFUL year. I've gotten to meet so many great people, customers as well as blogging friends. What a fantastic community this is!

On a personal note, I've been challenged creatively, I'm learning new things, have discovered a love for cardmaking and paper piecing, and am staying on track (meaning that I'm regularly working on it, not that I'm up-to-date) with my scrapbooking. All wonderful things.

I've also been the fortunate and grateful recipient of all sorts of great products and giveaways, and now I want to host one of my own.

So, to celebrate my birthday, my blog's birthday (June 18), and the fact that I'm creeping up on 100 followers, I wanted to offer up this little prize which includes all sorts of goodies from some of my favorite companies and even some retired items I've been hoarding.



The prize includes:

DCWV Tres Chic stack
Smooch Spritz Green Olive and Pralines & Cream pack
Stampin Up The World Over stamp set
Cuttlebug Embossed Tags cut & emboss folder
Cuttlebug Vintage Collate cut & emboss folder
Cuttlebug B replacement cutting pads
Pink Paislee Soiree rhinestone chains
Little Yellow Bicycle Hello Summer 10 Things Pocket
Little Yellow Bicycle Hello Summer Chipboard Slider
Bella Blvd Blooms a Bella
Bella Blvd Super Stud Clear Stamps
American Crafts Let it Snow stamps
Provocraft Madeline Alphaletterz
Two Creative Memories Black Photo Sharing Cards
Creative Memories Tuscany Storybox
Hydrangea Hippo black yarn trim
CTMH - Petite Perks stamp set
CTMH - Paper Garden My Stickease Assortment
CTMH - Color Ready Kraft Borders
$10 CTMH credit

Lots of crafty goodness, and who knows, there might be a few surprises in the box too.

All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment on this post. If you're a follower or a customer, please leave a second comment.

I'll draw a name using Random on June 18th and announce it on the blog on the 19th.

Thanks so much for being here and for being such an encouragement to me!
