Halfway There 52 Weeks of Me Challenge- BIG Giveaway Event!

*GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED*

(Please See the Winner's Post on Friday July 8th, 20011)

Hi There!  Thanks for stopping by for my
VERY FIRST Giveaway....I am so excited!

Andrea of The May Twins along with Dollimama and Twins, Trials & Triumphs are throwing a HUGE Link Up Giveaway Event in recognition of their 52 Weeks of ME!
Photobucket

For my ME time, I love...love...love to Scrapbook.  I started over 10 years ago and complete 3-4 books every year.  Now that Ave & Bryce have come into my life, ALL my scrapbooking time is spent on their books.  My mom was never much of a "memory-keeper" so, I have made it my number one mission to make sure my children have photo books and stories they can read for the rest of their lives.  To be completely honest...it's more for me than them, at least for now!  I can be found many times throughout the week, sitting on the couch sipping a glass of wine & enjoying all my lovely scrapbooks!

So in light of my favorite ME TIME, I have decided to Giveaway a Starter Scrapbook Kit!  (All you need is a book, some glue and your favorite pictures!)

To enter, just leave me a comment on what your favorite thing to do for "YOU" is!  Bam...that's ONE entry for you to win!! 

For a second chance to win...Just "Follow Me!" and then leave a second comment and BAM...BAM.. that's TWO entries for YOU!!

Want a THIRD Chance to win...ok then!  Suggest my giveaway to a fellow blogger...come on back and leave me ANOTHER comment and BAM...BAM...BAM...that's THREE entries for YOU!!

A winner will be drawn at random on July 8th.  (I will mail out the prize to anyone, anywhere!  Us Canadians are often excluded from GREAT Giveaways so I just can't do it to my international blogger buds!)


Included in the kit is:  Close to My Heart Level 1 & Level 2 Elegant Bouquet Paper (18 sheets of printed paper, 12 sheets of colored cardstock, 2 sheets of stickers), 4 Close to My Heart Ribbon Rounds, 4 small acrylic "Hello Friends" stamps & block, 1 small black stamp pad, 60 Making Memories flower embellishments, 3 packages of "BLING", 1 package of "puff" stickers and 1 package of Close to My Heart "Love" rub-ons. (Value: Over $50.00)

  1. Ooh, what a great giveaway! I love to scrapbook, although sadly I don't do it very often. Do you have a space you can dedicate to it? I have to spread out on the kitchen table...but that means that I have to put it all up before the girlies wake up. It's definitely a production...but it's an awesome "escape" when I do get into it.

    My favorite thing to do (within reason!) is to steal away for a few minutes to a cafe or coffee shop by myself for a cup of coffee (and a cookie!) with a good book or a juicy magazine. It feels like such an indulgence...and reminds me of who "me" is. :)

    Bam! one down :)
