A GIVEAWAY & an announcement

*read this whole post as there is a giveaway at the end!*

I have a little announcement to make.  Actually, in my scrapbooking life, this is a significant announcement!  A few months back, while I was in the middle of a depressing move away from my church and close friends,  I was approached by a fabulous woman from the Creating Keepsakes Editorial Team.  She asked me if I wanted to be on the 2011 Creating Keepsakes Dream Team.

"WHAT?!  Shut the front door!  Are you kidding me?!  YES!"

So today is the day of the big announcement! (Check it out HERE)  I am a 2011 Dream Team member for Creating Keepsakes!  This experience brings me such great joy and sense of accomplishment!  I am overwhelmed by the honor, and I feel so blessed to be a part of this fabulous team!  Check out the other fabulous Dream Team ladies on the list to the right------------------------------------------------------->


Being on the CK Dream Team has been such a blessing in my life.  I am overwhelmed by the generosity and support of many companies associated with the scrapbooking industry.  While I can never repay the excitement that Creating Keepsakes has brought to my scrapping life, nor can I repay the generous companies who sent me gifts, I can pay forward the gift of giving to others.  In an effort to "Pay-it-Forward,"  I will be giving something away on blog for the next 6 days.  Gift certificates, digital quickpages, Christmas card templates, and a digital scrapbooking kit are a few of the ways I have chosen to to pay forward the blessings I have felt in my scrapbooking life.

So let's start off the week of giveaways with a gift certificate that would appeal to paper and digi scrappers!  I bought a $10 gift certificate to Two Peas in a Bucket to give away to one lucky winner!  Simply leave your first name and state (or country) in the comments section of this blog.  I will use a random selecting site to draw a winner!  Please only enter once.  The comments section will close at 11:00AM (central time) on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010.  I will announce the winner here on my blog at noon (central time) on Saturday, November 6, 2010.  Make sure to come back to see if you won!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Thursday!
