1 year Blog Anniversary, CANDY, and small prize winner!

It's hard to believe, but Sunday, Feb. 27th was my official 1-year Blog Anniversary! I never thought I would ever do the blog thing, but to have kept at it for a year....well, for me that's amazing. I'm not usually the most tech savvy individual, and I never thought I would figure out this whole blog thing. There is still a lot I need to learn, but I'm finding things get easier the more I get on here.

So, of course, to celebrate my accomplishment, I'm offering up some blog candy! The rules are simple:

1. Become a follower of my blog.
2. Leave me one comment on this post (only one comment per person please). If you want me to contact you directly then leave me your email addy too.

I would definitely appreciate it if you would advertise this candy on your own blog to spread the word, but it's not necessary to win. Here's a picture of my blog candy:

I don't want to keep it up too long because I have a bad memory and will forget about it, LOL! So I'll take comments until Friday, March 11th 11:59 PM CST and announce the winner by Monday, March 14th.

These are the items shown in the picture:
Magnolia Stamp: Tilda with Newly Hatched Chick
2 Cuttlebug Embossing Folders: D'vine Swirl and Swiss Dots
4 Packaged Flowers from Recollections Boutique Fleur Line
1 Jar of Recollection Flowers
Package of Pink Buttons
Circle Rhinestones/Pink Butterfly Rhinestones/Clear Butterfly Rhinestones
EK Success Punches: Heart & Star/Butterfly & Circle/Tree & Snowflake
CTMH Clear Shapes
CTMH January Stamp of the Month "Find Your Style"
Paper Studio Flocked Brads
Martha Stewart Double Edge Punch-Monarch Butterflies

Prior to advertising this blog candy, I had 59 followers! I wanted to do a special drawing for a $15 gift certificate to CropStop to reward one of you who was already a follower. So, I put your names in a hat, and had my son draw a name.

The winner of the $15 Gift Certificate to CropStop is...........................CRICKET!

I will send Cricket an email, but if you know her you may want to let her know she won my small drawing.

Thank you all again so much for your awesome support! I really appreciate each and every one of you!

Hugs,
Rosemary :)
