woohoo- how about a little giveaway?

It's kinda funny that I'm doing this post considering that my friend, Leah Killian will soon have her millionth visitor to HER blog and I am excited about having 20,000 at mine. Yeah, I have some catching up to do but for me to have that many visitors on my little blog is a pretty cool thing to me.

So, how about a giveaway!!!

I haven't done one in a while so to thank my sweet, loyal readers I'll put something together.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me what is making you happy today and what colors you love to scrapbook with lately. If you don't scrap, just tell me what colors you like the best.

How's that?

I'll leave this open until Friday night midnight EST and then I'll randomly choose a winner for some fun scrappy things.

Have a great day!!!

p.s. the Jillibean Soup deadline was last night...now the waiting begins. You know, I would LOVE to be on THAT team, not just any team, but don't want to get my hopes up. I was excited this morning, though, to see that they're checking out our work now and the wonderful Jill left me a comment. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!! And, good luck to those of you who are trying for the team, too.

Good luck with Jillibean Soup, they have awesome papers... right now I am so drawn to anything bright, because I am sick of cold, rainy and dreary.... but am really loving a red and turquoise match.

I am working on a long term project scraping all the quilts my sister has made (over 100), so I am working with all colors and patterns of paper. It is amazing how well I can match her quilt photos and fabric swatches to beautiful paper.

Right now I am feeling anxiously happy nausious...is that possible? and I finished the 9 pages that I needed to do for the photo tri-fold thing I was telling you about. I used some pink, brown and white on some and various other color patterns that turned out really cute. I will takes some pics and put them on my blog shortly.

Congratulations Becky, 20 000 is worthy of a celebration. Your blog has inspired me creatively and also personally. You are so transparent through your blog entries about the ups & downs of family and parenting, as well as those of your creative world. Thank you. Today I am happy about my 3rd photography class tonight. We had a project to do and although I'm nervous to share my work I'm excited about the feedback I'll get that will make me a better photographer :) Scrapping colours (yes that's the Canadian spelling, lol) that are receiving a lot of play lately are green, brown, and yellow. Thanks for the chance to win!

I have a feeling you don't need luck...you're just so talented! Sending good vibes your way anyway. ;)
As to what makes me happy...my kids are on spring break and we're at the ice skating rink. I'm happily sipping hot cocoa and playing in my iPhone while they're having fun. Just content that they like simple pleasures like me.
And scrappy colors? Right now it has to be RED.

Gina said...

Happy right now...meditation on the wonderful truth of the cross that was part of my bible study this morning.

Scrappy colors? ummm...kraft! Now if I could just find some...lol! ;)

Oooooh, I just LOOOOVE your give aways! My daughter, Erica, is my happy thawt. She lost 3 teeth and 5 days (great scrappin' pix) and just reached her goal of free camp by selling 600+ girl scout cookies (twice as much as last year). And my favorite color is green...I'm getting ready to scrap with the Nook Feb Kit (BG Origins).

Zarah said...

CONGRATS!! :D

What makes me happy is (among other things) the fact that yesterday's meeting went well. I've got some hopes pinned on that one. Fingers crossed.

Lately, I'm VERY into beige again. Beige, brown and cream... Craft, white and... all those nuances. :)

Bettina said...

And you did it.... My kids are making me happy today and everyday, trying to enjoy every moment with them, cause you never now what could happen to you, life isnt always fear, so make the most of everyday and have fun while doing it. my favourite colours right now i think is pink, turkoise maybe because im scrapping alot of my daughter and alering things to her.Thanks!!!

Jamie Cotter said...

I would love to win some scrappy things! Rachel is making me happy today because she's been so cuddly and sometimes it's nice to just cuddle. It makes staying at home so worth it! Plus the sun has made another appearance today, which also makes me happy because I can spend some time outdoors with the kiddos this afternoon. Lately I have especially liked to scrapbook with pinks, reds,greens, and blues. But I'm not really picky. I really need to finish Rachel's baby book, however, so I've been leaning more toward baby girl colors.

Carol said...

What's making me happy today? It finally stopped raining and the sun is out!! Congrats on making the JBS DT! I love to scrap in neutral colors at the moment. Although in 10 minutes, that could change! Have a great day.
