1 Year BLOGOVERSARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi friends!
I'm so excited that you are sharing this little bit of your day with me because today is THE day- my 1 year Blogoversary! Yaaaaaaaay!

I truly, honestly cannot believe I've been blogging for a year. I started this blog because I said I'd NEVER do it- and so, being the rebel that I am, I had to rebel against myself! :) This blog has been such an AMAZING adventure! I've met so many wonderful friends- some who I truly consider friends even though I probably couldn't pick them out of a line up! (Hee! Hee!) Ok, maybe I could because they would be the ones with inky fingers & glitter on their faces! :) During this amazing ride, I've been published, been part of the YMH Design Team, received awards from blog friends, won some challenges- just oh SO much! One more thing I'm so thankful & grateful for is that everyone who has stopped by my blog & took the time to leave comments has been nothing but positive. Thank you for that. I truly appreciate your kindness and generous praise :) THANK YOU!

So are you ready for the Blog Candy...
Here we go!

You know I love things in threes. Why 3? I like 3. Three is a good number ;) so for my 1 year blogoversary I'm not just offering 1 blog candy, I'm offering... THREE! Yaaay!

THE RULES (Boo! Hiss!)
I know, I know don't like rules, but, we need to have them. In order to be eligible for the blog candy here's what you need to do & should know:

1) You do not have to be a follower or subscribe to my blog to be eligible. While I'm truly humbled & appreciate the 92 followers (OMG!) who have decided to follow my blog, I want you to follow because YOU WANT TO, because YOU LIKE what I share here, not because there's blog candy involved. So if you are not a follower, you may enter into ONE blog candy of your choice.

2) Followers: As a thank you,  you may enter in 1... or 2... or ALL 3 blog candies that you'd like! BUT you may only enter 1 comment for each blog candy. You do not have to post this on your blog, but it's so very kind of you if you do :) You can only win ONCE (if you happen to win more than one.)

3) Entries will be in the form of a comment in the comment section of each post. There will be 3 separate posts- one for each blog candy so be sure to scroll down to each one. Just make sure you haven't left more comments than you're allowed, or no candy for you :(

4) You may leave any message in your comment, but if you have any special requests for tutorials, suggestions, questions or anything else- let's hear it!

5) Anyone who does NOT follow the rules becomes INELIGIBLE for the prizes, and must serve detention. But, seriously PLAY FAIRLY!!! Anyone not adhering to the rules will be disqualified & your entries become null & void. No exceptions, No excuses!!! I will be checking with my TEACHER eyes- very closely for cheaters. I've been in the trenches for 14 years so I'm all over the cheater ways. I will be checking & monitoring closely!

6) The deadline for the blogoversary blog candies is 9:00 P.M. FRIDAY, APRIL 30TH (Pacific Standard Time). The winners will be announced on Sunday, May 2nd (my grammy's birthday :) Hello Kitty's beautiful assistant:
                                 (no, I did not take this pic :)
will use to choose the 3 winners & will post it on the blog.

7) Winners must reside in the U.S. (sorry to my friends from abroad- shipping would be too costly :( please include your name, city/state, & a way I may reach you if you are a winner (i.e. email). If I don't have a way to contact you or you don't respond, Hello Kitty's beautiful assistant will draw another name through

If you have any questions, please leave them on THIS post. I will answer them here. So...
Thank you for celebrating with me and GOOD LUCK!
