20,000 Leagues Contest

Okay! :) Here's the deal... I'm about a day away from 20,000 visitors to my blog... (WOW!) And so I'm giving one of you this album!... It's one of my favorites! I originally made it predicting that my sisters unborn twins would be boys. When Olivia and Kennedy were born, this just didn't suit their sweetness... so here we are. I'm regifting. Lol. But what a gift... one of my favorites :) Vintage Glass buttons, yummy papers, texture, color, handstitching, and a starfish (one of my favorite water creatures) and completely handmade. These start as a flat stack of supplies...I make them from scratch ;) Wanna win this? Here's what you need to do :) 1) Share your favorite post from my Blog (go to the archives drop down on the right if you need) ...and tell us why its your favorite. If you have a few...that's fine too. (note: If you want to comment while you're looking at old posts, feel free, I get them all to my email) 2) Bonus Points: You'll see at the top of my sidebar a new thing, a blidget! :) My friend, Kristen Koolaid made it for me!!! (THANK-YOU KRISTEN!! YOU ROCK!)... Read the blurb under the F.Nest logo... If you put this on your blog, (if this is confusing, just ask) you get THREE extra entries into the draw for this 'Life is Beautiful' album :) 3) Tell me in the comments of this post your answer to #One, A Blog Link for #Two and your Name and Email address :) ***I will randomly draw the winner Monday night; our Canadian Thanksgiving :)*** Below is an example of what your Freckled Nest Blidget will look like on the sidebar of your blog. When clicked, it will link your readers to Freckled Nest :) {You don't have to put it at the top though, ha.} If you need help with cut&paste or adding html to your blog sidebar...use this tutorial from last month. ***Everyone and Anyone can enter*** PS> If the winner wants ribbon added to the spine, I'll do that :) Thanks for visiting my blog everyone! I sure like you guys!
