Blog Candy Giveaway!!

It's hard to believe my little Caden is going to be a year old soon. 
This past year has been such a blessing!  I have loved being at home with both my boys.  I've had fun playing with them, and have also had fun squeezing in some CRAFT-time while they play beside me.  Alas, my maternity leave is coming to an end; I'm going back to work on May 17th :(  
   Sadly, the reality is that when I go back to work, my paper crafting and blogging will slow down drastically (if not come to a complete stop).  I teach high school English, and since I'll be going back with only 6 weeks left of the school year, I'll likely be up to my eyeballs in marking papers {insert big pout here}.
   I'm going to try to squeeze in as much papercrafting and blogging as I can over the next few weeks, and I thought I'd do a BLOG CANDY giveaway too!!  I thought about doing one for my 100th post (but that may be by next week).  So I'll draw for the candy on May 16th (the day before I go back to work).

1.  Leave a comment on this post.
2.  If you admire my work, consider Following my blog (not a requirement to win)
3.  Help spread the word about the chance to win--Copy the photo of the blog candy and post it with a link to this post somewhere on your blog.

5. 2pk-Handmade paper cards and envelopes pack.
6. Jolee's Boutique Dimensional Stickers--Pink & Cream Daisies
7. Memory Labels (with words Freedom, Awesome, Fantastic, Dream, Believe, Discover)
