Birthday Blog Candy

**** Blog Candy is Over!! ****

So, for those who don't yet know, I have a big, major, milestone birthday coming up on April 6. I am going to be - gasp - FORTY!!! The utter horror of it all!

Okay, so it's not really that bad. I don't usually feel almost 40. It does feel a little strange to know that I have a child who will be 19 in July, however. I cannot possibly be old enough for that!

I thought I would take a page from those who have gone before me and celebrate my birthday by giving away some blog candy. I'm not completely sure this is all of it, but because it's my 40th, and it's kind of a big number (for me, anyway!), I thought it should be some special blog candy. Here's what we have to begin with:contents:
Paper: Basic Grey - Euphoria
Stamps: The Unity Company -
"My Cup of Tea" single
"Shine" single
several unmounted images
(wrapped package, Laugh, memories)
Etc:
green stickles
Yankee Candle Co - Clean Cotton


The rules: I will choose a random winner on April 6, 2009. For one entry, please leave a comment on this post. For an additional entry, post to your blog and link back here. For a third entry, follow my blog. Yes, I am vain enough to adore having followers and I will readily admit that!! If you already follow me, just note in the comments section and I'll put in an extra entry for you. I'll have Random.Child draw a winner after work.

It's likely that I will find something else to put in the blog candy. I will definitely be adding some real candy. Chocolate type candy. From work. Yes, folks, you will be entering for some fabulous Deloache Chocolate. Good luck everybody!
