2-Year Blogiversary Celebration - I have Candy!


Hello, everyone!  I have my 2-year Blogiversary coming up on June 21, and I thought it would be fun to celebrate! Woohoo! I can't believe I've been blogging for almost two years! You know it wouldn't be a celebration without prizes! I have two wonderful - and very generous - sponsors, plus a prize that I'm sponsoring. Here's the card I made with items from my two lovely sponsors; you can read all the details about my card here.

Check out the fabulous prizes that are up for grabs in my candy giveaway:

I am a proud mom of 2 amazing boys. I am in love with motherhood and love life to the fullest (although you know we all have our days, wink wink) I started out as an avid scrapper (not the fightin’ kind) which led to making cards, then I found my true passion “Creating Digital Images”. I have been sketching people throughout my life yet could never draw an animal; for example, a bear would end up looking like a mouse.   In 2009 I took a Graphic/Web Development course that enabled me to hone in on my creativity so today a bear looks somewhat like a bear, lol. I enjoy making websites with Dreamweaver CS4 and learning more each day about HTML and CSS. We all have our favourites  to work with when we get the “Creative Bug”, mine is without a doubt working with stamps. My favourite tool would have to be the scoreboard which I use to make envelopes, boxes and creative designs on the edges of my cards. I am a working mom, a social butterfly  (I am told) and love to sing, play guitar and compose music but most of all I am a loyal friend, a little eccentric at times, sincere, honest and love love love to have fun!! There is always  laughter in my home, I believe life is what you make it for it is in the way we perceive every little thing.

Unfortunately, as I am busy doing other things, my blog is currently inactive.  Additionally, I am unable to keep up the costs for the cart associated with the store.  HOWEVER, my partner in crime, Lisa D., is still actively promoting Creative Bug Digital SnapShots through challenge sponsorships and blog milestone celebrations so you'll still be able to find my digis out there in cardland.  To check out my digis head to:  To contact Lisa for sponsorship opportunities, email her at: cbd_sponsorship {at} outlook {dot} com.  

The prize is 5 images from Creative Bug Digitals.

Are you interested in digital sentiments, papers and other embellishments?  How about a badge made especially for your blog?  If these are items you are interested in, you are going to want to check out Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.  My name is Lisa and with over 175+ posts of  freebies to choose from, and new ones added often, I just might have what you are looking for.  Along with the freebies I offer, I also create blog badges and am in the process of putting some kits together.  Additionally, I'm so excited to now be sponsoring giveaways and challenges at other blogs.  

So, if you have the time, come and take a look.  There is always inspiration to be found among my many different features.   I'd love for you to pop by and visit me.  I hope you have a blast!

The prize is this gorgeous Flower Power Kit from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles, and there are are 4 different prizes up for grabs:

*one person wins full kit
*one person wins patterned and textured papers
*one person wins all three elements sets (brads, frames, stickers)
*one person wins the word art kit 

The third giveaway is sponsored by me! I won a $10 gift voucher from Yours or Mine Paper Crafts and I would like to pass it along to one of my lucky followers. Please note: This prize might be better suited for someone residing in the U.S. as the shipping costs can be a bit high if ordering from outside the U.S.

How to Enter:
  1. Be or become a follower of my blog with Google Friend Connect (your little photo must appear under Followers).
  2. Post a photo of my candy badge (shown below) on your blog and link back to this candy post.
  3. Leave a comment below and include a link to your blog.  Please state whether you live in the U.S. so I will know you want to be included in the drawing of the third prize. If you live outside the U.S. but would still like to win the third prize, please indicate in your comment.
  4. Deadline to enter is Saturday, June 20.  Candy to be awarded June 21.
