99 Things......................and some Blog Candy!

Can you believe that I’ll have been blogging for 2 years on the 17th July?
No?....Nor can I but it’s true!

So to celebrate my blogaversary I’ve put some Candy together.


I must admit that when I started putting this little lot together I came very close to keeping it for myself but I have to be strong, so here goes………….

My collection consists of:-

Papermania Touch of Teal, a kit that contains ……
12 sheets 12 x 12 patterned papers
12 sheets 12 x 12 double sided patterned papers
2 sheets of alphabet stickers
2 sheets handmade toppers
1 sheet cardstock stickers
1 sheet 3D stickers

Not bad on it’s own err?

But I’ve also brought a few other items that I thought would go with it, so whoever wins the random draw will also get….

A set of MME, Wild Asparagus 20 Clear stamps
3 VersaColor Ink Cubes in Green, Turquoise and Black
4 tubes of A La Mode Glitter Glue
1 pack Peacock feathers
1 pack Express Yourself Finishing Touches
1 pack KARS Sticky Backed Gems
1 Anita’s Gemstone Wheel
4 mts Ribbons
1 pack Birthday Rub-Ons
1 pack Craft Dots


Right then, to be in the random draw which will take place on the 17th July you will need to leave me a comment on this post but it’s not quite that straight forward.

You’re going to have to do a bit of work to join in with this.

You’ll have noticed that my Blog Title is '99 Things'
