It's Blog-a-Versary Day!

Edited to add:  Blog candy is closed 9/19/2010..thanks for commenting!

Well, it's finally here!  It's blogaversary day!  It all began here and 433 posts later, my life is not my own.  LOL  I've learned alot and most of all, I've had the immense pleasure of "meeting" amazingly talented women from all over the world.  I've been blessed to have been asked to be on several design teams and still shake my head over the wonder of it all.
I want to say a big "Thank You" to those of you who have taken the time to follow my little blog whether by email or Google reader or the Feedblitz link up by giving someone a present.  Now, I must add the admonition that if you googled blog candy and ended up here, I will have to exclude you from the drawing.
                                                  

Here's what I've included:  (some items are not in the photos...I'll be adding more as the month goes on!)
3 Perfect Pages scrapbook packages - Toddler, Birthday and Sports 
  (included are papers, chipboard, tags, and stickers)
Stampin Up Prints Pack
Autumn Leaves Patterned Paper Autumn colors paper pack
Me and My Big Ideas Chipboard embellishment pack of 38 pieces
Martha Stewart Multi Pattern Ribbon Threader punch
K & Co. Halloween dimensional stickers
Marcellla K Baby dimensional stickers
Marcella K Glamour Girl Talk dimensional stickers
Marcella K Glamour Girl dimensional stickers (different style)
K & Co. Rough and Tumble Soccer dimensional stickers
Walnut Hollow Creative wood spools
Making Memories Clear Stamps Labels
Making Memories Clear Stamps Passport
House Mouse Seed Shooter rubber stamp
Cuttlebug Maple Leaf Cut & Emboss die
Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pens (2)
5 Copic Markers (!)
and some additional surprises that I will add because we all love to be surprised, right?!
 I will draw the winner using Random Number Selector on Sunday, September 19th.  Here's all you have to do....just leave me a comment to tell me what you'd like to see more of ...CAS, boxes, projects, etc.   
Thanks so much!!

Hi Charlene
Congratultions on your blogging milestone. You have created a truly beautiful and inspirational blog and love visiting. Your blog candy is extremely generous!!
I for one would love to see some more beautiful gift sets, or co-ordinating projects.

Lillian Child said...

That is quite the accomplishment! Congrats!!! It took me a long time to embrace creating a blog, but now I look forward to creating posts to stay in touch with family, friends and my papercrafting family. I've only got 37 posts so you can tell just how new I am to this process (grin). And I so agree with you that it is amazing how many talented and friendly people that are connected with this industry. I am a follower of your blog and enjoy sitting down with coffee in the morning and seeing what new ideas you bring to the table. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with all of us! And in the future, I'm a visual gal, so more step by step instructions on new techniques would be awesome.

Happy blogaversary, Charlene! All of your creations are impressive; my favorites are the CAS cards and gift sets. Your CAS cards are the true definition of the style while those gift sets are pure inspiration!!

Happy Blog-a-Versary! I enjoy following your blog and seeing your creations. You are an inspiration! Personally I would like to see more boxes and/or gift sets.

Hi Charlene!
Happy Blogaversary! I have your blog in my Google Reader so I never miss a post. You are so very talented and I find much inspiration in your creations. I really enjoy your "Foodie Friday" posts too! I love your cards, but since you want us to pick something we'd like to see more of...I would like to see more non-card projects.
I wish you many more blogaversaries!
Lorrinda

Jess Stewart said...

OOohh! Thanks for the chance to win. I'd like to see boxes and clean and simple.

Theresa said...

Awesome blog candy. Thanks for a chance to win. I get your blog through email and enjoy all your posts. I am partial to CAS. I like the uncluttered look of these cards. I just started a blog. All of 5 posts so far. I have a lot of learning to do before my blog is anywhere close to being as good as yours.

Happy Blogaversary!!! I found you through the pleated ribbon blog hop! You are very talented, I love all of your things. Since I am new I say all of it!! I love your boxes and the cards are beautiful.

Leslie said...

What a great blog! I found you through SCS! Boy am I glad I did! I love the binder clip photo holder you did! Can I say that using a die cut that is larger than the clip was brilliant! I had not thought to try to "disguise" the clip part! I love how the entire piece looks so coordinated. Mine, until now, have only a small bit of patterned paper and an embellie and ribbon! What NEW fun I will have! Also, I love the SCHOOL word book! Beautiful! I especially like the distressed colors! The primary colors can be really tiresome. Thanks for all the inspiration and the chance for the BC!

Happy Blogaversary! I found your amazing blog just a month ago through SCS, and I am absolutely hooked! Your projects are amazing, and Foodie Friday has given me a handful of new recipes to try. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more! As for suggestions... I would love to see more CAS, gift sets, and non-card projects. Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win some incredible blog candy!

HazelQ said...

Happy blogaversary Charlene!! I'm really happy I have been following your blog, you have a nice CAS style :) I'm not really sure what I would like to see since all you do is lovely, maybe more card sets :) I always find those hard to do lol
Thank you for the chance to win and I hope this next year will be twice as fun!
Hugs
Hazel

Susan said...

I came across your blog through SCS and I have to say it is one of the best ones out there. The recipes are amazing....I can't wait to try them. But most of all, your cards are gorgeous but not so detailed as to make it impossible to case them. Thank you for sharing your craft and creativity with the world.

Susan said...

I would love to see more 3D projects...boxes and such. You are amazing and I can't wait to see what comes next!

Congrats & Happy Blogaversary to you!! Thanks for sharing your creativity and amazing creations...and for inspiring all of us! I love all your cards, the gift sets, the recipes (chocolate chip cookie recipe is one of my favorites...and thanks for the hints about using top quality ingredients!!)...LOVE it all!
I'm a cardmaker, so I'd like to see more of your amazing cards...but someone else wanted to see "non-card projects"...so just keep doing what you love to do...we enjoy it all!
Thanks for your generosity and for sharing this sweet candy!

Pam and Presley said...

Wow, I am really impressed with your blog. I am new to your blog and I came here from No Time To Stamp. Your Black and White cards are Beautiful, I would have not thought of those. I am fairly new to cards, scrapping and altering. My daughter (she is 8 soon to be 9 in 9 days! That's a Big day for her)and I we are having a blast learning new things together. We have a blog (we are trying to learn) with some posted, still have more to post. www.craftswithpamandpresley.blogspot.com
please come over and let us know how we are doing. :)

I would like to learn more on color matching between card stocks-patterned and non-patterned. Different types of popular card folds. How to make a explosion box. In altering-layering techniques.

Thank you for a chance to win the AWESOME candy and can not wait to see what you have next.

God Bless,
Pam Barker
