winner winner chicken dinner

I had so much sharing my Blogaversary festivities with YOU!

I know you're all waiting to hear about the golb ydnac recipients but first I thought I'd share some of the comments I received:

Day 1

How long have you been blogging?

Youngest blogger is Loly at less than 6 months!
We also have Char who has a blog in the works!!
TesaB has the oldest blog that turned 5 in August!

There are tons in between....for you lurkers that do not have a blog, I highly encourage you to start one!  It will be truly worth your time!  It's such a fun way to connect with other people that share the same papercrafting passion.

I need more Days of the Week:

Erin...Woot Woot!!!!

Day 2

What is one of your FAV project/card/layout you have made...leave a link!

Okay, this is difficult because everybody's project rocked but here are just a few that caught my eye:

Obviously, the first thing that caught my eye was that adorable mason jar on the cover BUT the whole concept of the Gratitude Journal is so awesome.  

It totally reminds me of Rhonna Farrer's designs but Kelly stamped everything...I can seriously sit and stare at her card

I Need more Woodgrain:'s you!

Day 3

What's one of your favorite challenge sites?

I Need More Yellow:'re the girl!

BTW, Kelly is awesome...she's hostessing a card drive for a sweet girl named Addison...won't you send in a couple of your cards??!!!

Day 4

What do you look in a blog that you would take the time to follow?

Great pics
Personal stuff

Crafty blogs with steps and supply lists
Great personality

I Need More Pink:

Bunch of Frolic:

Barbles and Rosie...You are the winners of my Blogaversary golb ydnac!!!!

F i r s t  4 B l o g g e d  C a r d s!

You gals that linked up ROCK!  Personally I cringe at most of my earlier cards, mostly based on the photography....but seriously, I think we have a lot to learn about how we've grown as crafters and bloggers by looking at those earlier posts.

Box of Shame:

Janice...I hope you can use some of this things in my Box of Shame!!

Whew....this is an uber long post...but I had fun putting it together....congrats to everyone that won golb ydnac, but most importantly, THANK YOU for visiting...for supporting me...for inspiring me...this whole blogging journey wouldn't be the way it is without YOU.

For a slight change of pace, here's a pic of me and THEE Teri Anderson...taken before the class {my first ever CKC one} started!
