Happy Birthday to Me - Giveaways!

Today is my birthday, I'm now the fabulously young age of 38 and I'm loving life! I've had many special life events this year.....

I've decided to better my health by changing my lifestyle, eating better and exercise regularly. It's a long road to get healthy but I'm determined and will succeed!

My type1 diabetic son, Braydon, finally received his insulin pump several weeks ago. Knowing that his blood sugar levels are better regulated now is a huge stress reliever!

And my friend and I started a new scrapbooking challenge blog, The Paper Variety! It's something I've wanted to do for such a long time!

It's been a great 37th year and I'm so excited about my 38th! Better health for my son and me.. and also our challenge blog is going to be fantastic!

I'd like to celebrate my birthday by offering a giveaway! Since I work for our school district, I've decided to give one lucky winner this new CHA release - Crate Paper's "School Spirit" 6x6 paper pad and phrase stickers!


All you have do is leave me a comment! That's it! So easy! If you'd like 2 chances to win, then blog about this giveaway, link back to this post and leave a 2nd comment saying you've done so!

A winner will be randomly chosen on Friday Sept 10th! Be sure to come back then to see if you've won!

And also!! I wanted to let you all know that The Paper Variety is hosting a giveaway too! You could win Echo Park's "Life is Good"! Head on over there to learn how you could win this super cute collection kit!!

Thanks and Good Luck! :)
