How about a GIVEAWAY???

****************************************************

CONTEST NOW CLOSED - Winnner to be posted today :o)

****************************************************



I think that a GIVEAWAY is order! Exactly one year ago today, I decided that it would be fun (& necessary) to create a blog...& well, the rest is history! My DH still doesn't quite get the whole concept, & my kids beg me on occasion...MOM, PLEASE DO NOT POST THAT PHOTO...or MOM, TELL ME THAT YOU AREN'T GOING TO TELL THAT STORY!!! he, he, he :0)


I have made some FABULOUS, WONDERFUL, FUN, UBER TALENTED & DELIGHTFUL friends via this blog...I am so glad that I took the plunge a year ago! Thank you so much for all of the "love" you have shown me, for all of the encouragement, and because I do stalk a few of you...thanks for sharing your stories with me! You know who you are! LOVE YOU GIRLIES!!!


That said, I'd love to make some more blogger buddies! & to celebrate my first year as a blogger, here's a little something for one lucky blogger:



Not the greatest photo...but I just couldn't get one that I really liked... :o( Here's a rundown of what's up for grabs:


SEI Scrapbook in a Bag-Aunt Gertie's Sidekicks 8x8 Memory Book Kit
Making Memories Flip Frame Album
3 - Jenni Bowlin mini calendars
4 - Making Memories Vintage Findings tickets

2) Post a link about my 1 year blog anniversary giveaway to your blog. Then leave me a comment with your link. That's another entry!

3) Simply leave me a comment. You guessed it, that's another entry!

4) If someone leaves a comment & tells me that you sent them over & they win the giveaway, well, my blogger buddy, that means I will send you a special "surprise" RAK too! How about that???


So you have up to 4 chances to win some scrappy goodies! I will link this post at the top left of my blog for 10 days...then on August 21st...I will announce the lucky winner!


P.S. I have MORE scrap goodies that I would love to add to this giveaway...so let's get those comments & links & following going...I'd love to add some Cosmo Cricket & Basic Grey!!! :0)
