A BLOG CANDY RAK AND A BIRTHDAY PROJECT FOR A FRIEND!

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a beauttiful weekened!!!  I most certainly did, and I thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes!

I have a little RAK giveaway today to say "Thank You" to all my wonderful  412 followers!!!  To those of you who are new to my family of friends, Welcome!!!  I love having you here and I look forward to getting better acquainted!  In honor of reaching/exceeding 400 followers, here's my giveaway -- a little Tim Holtz package:


As this RAK is a result of my celebrating my followers, and to show my appreciation of your choosing to follow and support me, only followers are eligible this time around for this RAK -- sorry!  However, all additional new followers are welcome to participate as long as you're a member by the RAK deadline.  (I will have more giveaways which will include all my non-member friends again soon!).  The only rule to be eligible for this gift is to just leave me one of your wonderful comments!   The drawing/deadline will be Thursday, October 13, no later than 5 p.m. CT.  Good luck!!!  And, thanks so much again for following me!  I hope to never disappoint you!

Now I have a belated birthday project to share that I am sending to a wonderful friend.   She'll know who she is, I'm sure, when she drops by for a visit...lol!!!  But it's okay, I want her to see it!

I started this project as a card; however, when I looked at it, I decided to leave it blank because my friend has grandchildren and I thought this might even be better as a little card album.  So I've left it for her to fill in as she pleases.  Here's a tour of the project:




Here's why I especially thought this would work best as a card album instead of just a card -- it stands alone as a display for whatever is on the pages.  That says, to me, "ALBUM":


I hope my friend likes this, and I hope you do too!!!

Well, I'm off to do some lite chores, run a few errands, and I'll be back later to visit!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by to see me, love you all, hugs, and...

I'll be seeing you!
