Happy Blogiversary (and a RAK)! ***updated w/RAK pics**

My creation
1. Colorful Rainbow Balloons 114/365, 2. Happy 365, 3. Confetti, 4. 42-16986790
So, I've been hanging around these parts for a year now. That's a little hard for me to believe, but it must be so because the first post was made here on August 4th, 2007. Actually, it seems like it has been quite a bit longer. I have really enjoyed having this as a creative outlet, and I love all of the wonderful people I have met along the way. So, in honor of my fabulous blog readers, and the fact that it has been one year so far on this creative journey, I am going to be giving away a generous RAK.

Here's the deal...I can't show you a picture of the goods. Not just yet. That's because I am giving away one of the brand new add-on kits from Label Tulip's August collections. I promise that it won't disappoint...lots of brand new CHA goodies. PLUS, I am going to throw in a few little extras. After all, I can't give away a bunch of scrapbooking product without, say, a mini-book to put it all in. In the meantime, I have already ordered the add-on kit from LT with the rest of MY goods to play with. That means, that I will have it in my hot little hands (along with some other fun things) ready to mail out to you on the day that the kits go live for August (the 15th). The sneak peeks go up tomorrow, so you'll have a little hint as to what yumminess is in store for you. So, while I'm shopping around for some fun little extras, just leave me a comment. I'll leave the contest open until August 12th at 11:59 pm EST. I'll draw a winner on the 13th, and post the lucky name back up here that day. That way, if you are already a subscriber to LT and you win, you will know ahead of time so that you don't order the add-on.

***UPDATE***
Here are the items that I have added to the kit. I assure that they will match perfectly with all of the LT goodies. Don't forget to check back tomorrow (Aug 5th) for a sneak of the kit.

October Afternoon Chipboard Album

Doodlebug Sugar Coating in Limeade

Doodlebug Loopy Lou Adhesive Letters (to put that pretty glitter on)

And, some of the YUMMY Chatterbox Artsylicous Splendid Treasures in Ruby

Oh, and how about I make some more of these flowers to send to you that match the kit? I needed an excuse to make some more of them. *wink*

Simple as that...leave a comment here...you have through August 12th...I'll pick a winner on the 13th. Happy blogiversary to me, happy blogiversary to me...
