Wow, I can't believe I started this blog 1 year ago!! I look back and I cannot believe how much my cards have changed!!! For the better of course! And it's all because of the inspiration I get from all your blogs!!!  I actually started blogging because my wonderful friend Sam over at Sew Many Crafts, so Little Time (who I have known since  high school) started her blog and encouraged me to do the same so Sam and I decided it would be more fun to celebrate together! Now it wouldn't  be a celebration without presents so we have two!! Yep that's right... you have the chance to win two prizes!!! Sam has some candy and so do I!!!
If you don't know, I have won a lot of candy over the past year and a lot of it I just have not had the opportunity to use so I thought rather than let it continue to collect dust, I may as well give it away for someone else to create with!!!

My candy consists of: 
* 4 Sweet Pea Stamps
* A small tidy tray
* A journal stamp
* Martha Stewart Foam Adhesive
* some rhinestones and glitter
* Disney At the Beach Embossing folder and die
I've added some ribbon and magic mesh since I took the photo!!

Head on over to Sam's Blog to see what her candy is!!!

If you would like the chance to win this candy then all you have to do is:
* Become a follower of mine and Sam's Blog (Only enter if you are going to stay a follower)
* enter your name in inlinkz below
* and add a pic to your sidebar

feel free to leave a comment too, always love to hear from you!!

And that's it!!! Candy will close on the 29th September and we will announce the winners on the1st October. If I reach 200 followers I will add another little candy!!
