Yes you are reading that correctly!! I'm doing a giveaway. Actually 2 giveaways! Want the details or what you get first? hmmmm..... Okay here is what you will have a chance to win!

Here is what this stamp set is about: "The recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan caused untold devastation and heartache. Have you been wondering what you can do to help the survivors of the tsunami in Japan? Me too, and I was so happy to see what Close to My Heart has created to help the American Red Cross in their relief efforts. 

Through April 30, join me in ordering this stunning Hope for Japan set, A1118 for only $5.00 (retail value $7.95). 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross. This beautifully designed stamp set reminds us of how our hearts are hopeful for those who are in need.

As Jeanette Lynton, our founder wrote on her blog,“If we all do a little, together we can do a lot. Let's show our support and together, provide real HOPE for Japan!”"

Want to win this??? Well here is how you can!

Mayberry girl

So here is another fantastic paper pack. This one is called Mayberry. I bought the Workshop on the go for it (retails at $29.95). It comes with 1 bag of Canvas badge buttons, a workshop guide, Mayberry workshop stamp set and a level 2 paper pack, colors include: Cocoa, Colonial white Olive and Smoothie.

This layout is about my daughter, Alexandria's, very first trip to the beach. We went to Carmel State Beach and we had got there about Midnight. The only reason we even went was because I was dropping off boys at a scout outing and we were pretty close to the beach! Here is the layout!
