Spooky New GIVEAWAY!!!! October 4, 2010

Deadline for entries is 11:59 PM, CST on Friday, October 29th!!!  Winner will be announced on November 1st!  🙂

For this giveaway, I will be showing you a pic of the LOOT you will receive!!  Below you will see some summer and winter collections, Thanksgiving and Halloween collections, New Years collections, and a bunch of cute bugs (butterflies, dragonflies, and worms).  These are all things that have come out of my scrapbooking supplies.  My style has changed significantly since I first began paper crafting several years ago.  Some of this stuff is items that just aren’t my taste anymore or they are duplicates that I had (and decided to share).  Please note that while most of the sticker sheets you will receive are full, there are a couple that have been minimally used.  🙂

So how do you enter??  Simple!!

Please visit my shop, meldewdesigns, then come back here and tell me three things:  what your favorite item is in my shop, any suggestions (what to offer, how to make shop look better, etc.), and your email address!!  That’s it!!!  🙂

Psst!  By the way, we’re on Facebook now!!  Become a fan by clicking on the right sidebar and receive an extra entry in the giveaway drawing!

Thanks and good luck!

Just wanted to wish everyone out there a happy memorial day!!  We are so lucky to live in a free country and I am just so grateful for the troops fighting for us today that help our country stay that way.  I also want to take a moment to honor and appreciate those who have died for us and for our country.  God bless them, their families, and our country!!
