*C*E*L*E*B*R*A*T*E*

Did you all see this? I can't believe I have been able to hold that exciting news in all weekend. I can't wait to get to work with all of the fabulous new American Crafts goodies! And, what an insanely talented bunch of ladies! Congrats to you all! I'm so honored to be a part of this team!

And, to help me celebrate... I'm sharing the love with all of you. I have a RAK filled with a rainbow*licious assortment of Chatterbox's artsy.licious goodies! I was saving this until a little later in my month-long blogiversary celebration. But, in light of this exciting news... I couldn't save it any longer! There will be at least one more giveaway this month too. *wink* *wink*

You will receive one of *almost* ever sheet of their gorgeous papers (there were a couple of designs that I don't have extras of).



You'll also receive one of each color of their lace paper designs.



In addition, I will include...

a kohl velvet mini-album,



alabaster frames,



bloom Splendid Ribbons,



chocolate tags,



peacock Fine Pressed chipboard letters,



ruby Fabulous Brads,



and willow Splendid Treasures.



All you have to do... leave a comment here. A link to your fave Etsy shop, some visual inspiration, just a friendly "hello"... whatever you like. You have until 11:59 pm PST on Sunday, August 9th.

We are leaving tomorrow for a 5 day trip to Illinois to celebrate my great aunt's and great uncle's 50th wedding anniversary (not to worry... blog posts are already scheduled for my daily blogiversary party). Once we get home, I will select a random winner from the comments to receive this rainbow assortment of goodies, and announce it here on Monday.

Thanks for helping me celebrate this exciting news!
