One Year Blogaversary - Birthday - Giveaway

 **********This post will stay at the top till August 9th*********
Please scroll down to see my latest creations

Well July 31st today celebrates my one year Blog anniversary.  I can't believe it has been a year already.   I remember I was petrified when I first started my blog and was worried my creations did not warrant a blog.   I had so many people help me set it up and push me into starting a blog.  I want to thank all of them Melissa, Sheri, Bobby and many on the Cricut message board for encouraging me and giving me tips on how to get it set up.   Now that I have the hang of it I love having a blog and all the new wonderful extreme;y talented blog friends that I have met.  Over the past year I have been inspired, learned many new things and continue to be encouraged by my friends and followers.
It will also be my birthday August 9th so this will run from today through August 9th and will stay at the top of my blog till then.

So here is my little giveaway, I know it is not as much as some are but I know there are some fun things in there that you will enjoy.   Who knows I may add a few moe things before the deadline.
There is 12 Promarkers, ribbon, stickers, a little jar of bows and some other
odds and ends.

So here is what you need to do to enter:

 1.  Leave a comment on this post and let me know what you like about my blog or of there is anything I can do to improve it.  I will use to pick a winner from the comments.

2.   I would love for your to become a follower, but not a requirement.  I would like for you to become a follower because you like what you see on my blog.

3.  I would really like it if you put this on the sidebar of your blog, not required but I would love to get the exposure to my blog. :)  Or send over people to check it out.

I think I will just to throw something else into the box:) 

That is it, have fun and while you are here I would love for you to take a look around and come back maybe visit me again.

You consider this just a "small giveaway"?? I'd hate to see what you consider a "big" giveaway! LOL

My fav. project of yours has to be your "Circle" card. I have noooooo idea how you did those circles but I'm going to challenge myself to try it out. If you hear some screams, that'll be me! LOL
