My Birthday!! & A Birthday Give Away!!!!

Not Old, Just Older..like the song from Bon Jovi.....I'm comfortable in my jeans/skin...LOL!
In celebration of my Birthday I will have a surprise give away.
It's my first giveaway and I am bouncing in my seat with anticipation. 
One lucky person will receive $25.00 in Close to My Heart products from me and a tote from Thirty-One gifts. YEA YOU!!

It's a major Surprise!!!!!
 But, if you love to stamp or create scrapbook pages,
Your gonna enjoy this one.
For now it's a surprise give away... so on with the details..

ALL Entries in the USA/Canada, Please!!!

Enter from now, Sat. 8-27-2011 (7:00am CST.)
                 through Wed. 8-31-11(11:59pm CST).
You can have up to three separate entries posted. Better chances. I will stop by your Blog when you leave me that information. Love to see your great projects.

1) Just leave a comment at the end of this post with your Blog & email info so I can contact you.
2) For an extra entry, become a follower, then post a 2nd comment, letting me know you are a follower.
 3) For a third entry....Share my page on your Blog.
That's it. I think that's easy-peasy enough. I will randomly pick from all entries correctly posted on Thursday, 9/1/11 at noon (CST), I will then post the LUCKY WINNER that afternoon before 5:00pm (CST).
Good luck.
Here's some pics from my party last night. Had a great time with a few friends and family. My wonderful Friend Steph did a fantastic job gathering people together. My daughter did a great job on the cake...and my funny hubby made sure the fire extinguisher was close at hand as my many candles of life blazed away...LOL!
We enjoyed our Thirty-One Consultant with all the wonderful bags, totes, purses and so on. I truly enjoyed seeing many of you whom I do not get the opportunity to see all the time. These will be a scrapbook page or two for a later posting.
 
 
The candles on cake with fire extinguisher...LOL!!
My Favorite little guy with his grandaddy. He's such a happy baby!
  
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 Our Crop Club L.O. from Aug. 20th.
 We did shadow stamping and made simple pockets to hold picture tabs. We also used the 12' Flip flap assortment (12"x8"). These are so wonderful to add an interactive 1/2 page to your protective scrapbook sheet to add more pics and extend your layout all with in the 12x12 page. They open up like an extra page. I think they are my favorite item of Close To My Heart's Products. I am always in favor of being able to add more pictures to my 12x12 layout. But, lets face it...You can only add so much to one page or even a 2 page layout.
I hope you enjoy our little whimsy with the witch.
Products used are all CTMH unless otherwise stated.
Cardstock-Black, Barn Red, and Sunset
B&T Papers- from the Mischief Level 1 Paper Pack

Here is the 12x12 and the front of the 12x8 Flip Flap side by side.

Flip Flap inside when you open it.

inside Flip Flap opened next to the 12x12 center.
The witch is here then she slowly dissolves, then poof.....
....She is on her broom flying off to the next layout....LOL!!! 
Here at the top you can see a picture tag sticking out of the Picture Pocket Mat.
I rarely work with such dark colors, so I hope you enjoy.
We made this very simply so that the main focus was on how to plan
their layout when using the 12" assorted Flip Flaps at home.
Here is a picture of the August Stamp of the Month.
You can see the CTMH Idea Book at
This stamp of the month will only be available until August 31st.

Just a quick reminder.

from injury or harm.
