The Joys of the Internet- A GIVEAWAY. :)

I'm celebrating today. I start my new job in a few hours, which I would probably not have recieved had it not been for the continued communication with my previous coworker, Matt, through facebook. I'm also grateful for the internet because, even though he likes an hour and a half away from me when we're at our respective homes, I get to see Greg almost every day. I {heart} Skype. Here's a layout I made:
Journaling reads: "Skype is the preferred method to talk during time apart for Greg and me."
Details:
I made the little butterflies out of Prima flowers- I just cut off a petal and added some wire and rhinestones. They're adorable!

Supplies: Patterned Paper- Prima (green arrows) and Amy Butler (black and white), Flowers (Butterflies)- Prima, Letter Stickers- Scenic Route, Gemstones- The Paper Studio, Circle punch- EK Success, Black Ink- StazOn by Tsukineko, Ghost star- Heidi Swapp, Paint- Apple Barrel, Ribbon- unknown.

And now- here's the GIVEAWAY! I'm so grateful for all of the inspiration I constanly recieve from my scrapbooking friends of the internet, so it's time to give back. Here's what you'll win:

That's an 8 by 8 Cherry Hill by October Afternoon Pad, a 6 by 6 Recess by Basic Grey pad, and the first Hero Arts set I ever owned- CL168: Sparkle Clear Cupcakes. All of these are some of my favorite things. I think you'll like them, too. I'm also planning on throwing some more things into the package when it goes out. I just don't know what those are yet. :)

Here's how to win:
1. Comment once on this post answering this question: What is your new favorite scrapbooking item? Mine is my 1/4" Fiskars Corner Rounder that I posted about yesterday.

2. You can also follow me (or add me to your reader) if you would like another entry- just make a separate post telling me which reader you added me to. If you're a follower, you're already entered. :) Plus, you'll want to know when I post the winner, right?

So post away! Tell your friends. Have fun! I'll draw a winner on Sunday the 21st at 8:00PM CST. Good luck!

Thank you for stopping by. You guys rock.

Love.

Brit

1. I'm still pretty new to scrapbooking, but I'm all about paper. I can't buy enough pretty paper.

You are so cute, I have really loved reading your blog.

I just discorvered Coredinations paper. I bought some to make baby shower invites and have been sanding, stamping, and embossing it like crazy!

Hmmm. Trying to answer this question I realize I haven't bought any 'new' scrapbooking toy in a while--other than stamps and paper. BUT, the last new thing that I got that I am using more and more is CTMH's stipple brush. It's great for filling in texture on a random stamped item!

Congrats on the job- a comedy club should be fun place to work!!

My new fave scrappy item- I got some 8x8 packs of paper from Hobby Lobby- basic colors in bright and dark- I'm loving them lately! If you were to ask me next week, I'm sure I would have a different answer :)

Oops. Forgot to tell you my fav new scrapbooking item. Would have to be my new punches. Between the butterflies and the couple of border punches; I don't think I've done a layout without a punch in ages.
