Hello, happy people!  It's Friday!  Woohoo!  What else is it?  It's my TWO YEAR BLOGAVERSARY!  I can't believe I've been hard at work blogging for 2 years already!  I feel like I have learned and grown so much...not to mention met some fabulous new friends - on and offline!

To celebrate I'm offering up some candy for you.  There will be 2 grand prize and one runner up.

The Rules for Entry and Details
1)  Post the photo of my candy with a link back here on your blog.
2)  Add your info into inlinkz by clicking on the blue frog.
3)  Leave a comment telling me how long you've been blogging and why you got started.

One entry per person, please!  Becoming a follower is not required, but I won't stop you!  In fact, I'd love to have you pop in when you have time!  Who doesn't love visitors?  However, if I reach 200 followers by the end of the candy (shouldn't be hard since I'm at 272), I will add another stamp set and have a separate drawing for it!  My candy is open to all...I will ship anywhere in the world!  The collection will be closed on October 1st at 11:59 PM CST.  I will announce the winner on October 2nd!

Happy blogoversary!!! I have been blogging for a little over a year. I love doing it. I started blogging because I love making cards and paper craft items and wanted to be able to share my creations. I never realized the doors it could open and have had a lot of fun with it.

Wow this is amazing candy, and thanks soooo much for offering it!

I have only 'seriously' been blogging since January 2010, and it all started because I started making cards, saw all these amazing blogs, and decided I better get on board! So here I am, and enjoying every minute of it, and keeping all fingers and toes crossed, that this candy is mine!

A very happy accident as I didn't know blog land and all the fab blogs and challenge blogs existed till then,my son wasn't too happy when he came home from school that day and couldn't understand why I hadn't set up one of my own but now he is quite happy to share and tries to help if I have problems. Congrats on your 2 year anniversary, I'll have to check back now and see if I can work out when I started.

Marley said...

Hi Leila,

Happy blogoversary! This is really a awesome candy! So much great craft goodies, you are so generous!
I started a blog 1,5 years ago (when I start crafting) I was on another craft site before but I didnt like it there, so someone said; take a look at blogspot. I saw all those amazing and talented crafters.. I decided to make a blog too and get to know some people who share the same hobby. I really like it here in blogland!

I'm glad I stopped by your blog and I will follow you now.
Big hugs!

Marley said...

Sorry I said Leila, I mean Lelia! Hugs!

Christina Hicks said...

Hi Lelia, thanks for the invite to join in for the chance to win your blog candy. I have a pic of it on my sidebar. I have been blogging since November of last year. A friend talked me into trying it so I could post my cards. I didnt know squat about blogging and thought it would be something I would do a few times and quit. Well still here, I love it, I am on for hours, lol. I am a follower of yours now because I know how much I love getting new followers. By the way, your little dog, oh my goodness how cute is she! I just want to pick her up and hug her, lol.

Sharanda said...

Congrats on your BLOGAVERSARY!! I have been blogging since June 2010. I started blogging after I visited a fellow blogger's blog (heehee). I wanted a place where I could track my growth, meet other creative minds, and keep track of my thoughts and ideas. There is soooo much to offer in the paper crafts world that I really do learn something new every day! Thanks for the opportunity to win some FAB candy!!

Fae said...

Wow Congratulation Lelia and Happy Blogoversary.

I have been blogging since October 2007 and have been crafting for about 18 years.

I blog in the hope that I can share a little inspiration with others the way that others inspired me when I first got started, and still do now!

Look forward to seeing what you create in the next year.

Hugs, Fae xxx

Franca said...

Happy Blogaversary!!!!

Terry Oulboub said...

Hi Leila - congratulations on two years! WOW! I've been blogging for one year (August) and have a challenge blog as well, selling digital designs. I really love paper crafting (and other crafts). You have a wonderful blog, so I've become a follower. I think yours is the BEST candy ever, so I'm posting it to my sidebar so others can see, if that's okay. Happy Blogoversary! :-)

little amanda 7609 said...

I started my blog on blogspot about 3 years ago but due to some unfortunate incidents at the end of last year I deleted that (keeping this identity) and am now happily on wordpress.

My blog is for everything, mindless mutterings, photos, gigs and increasingly craft. I don't have many visitors to my blog but all the more the merrier. Just getting into this blog candy thing and looking at your blog, I am hoping to get into digi stamps and find some more inspiration and I look forward to following you.


Maxine said...

Congrats!!!! I've been blogging since June of 09. I started, because I was SO addicted to Lacey's blog and I wanted to show off my stuff. I wasn't very good at it, but I got the hang of it after a while. I even got some followers now! LOL.

Lynne said...

Wow!! Happy Anniversary on your blog! I started a couple yrs ago too..mostly to show my craft stuff but then I have added some personal is like a public diary I guess :)

Precious Memories Scrapbooking & More said...

I keep it up to share & read all the blogs I follow for inspiration... a little addicted to following blogs with great info & inspiration. I have become a follower of your blog too! All 3 requirements for enrty completed. Thanks for the chance to win this AWESOME candy!

monica said...

buon anniversario ....ti scrivo dall' blog l'ho aperto ad ottobre...perche?x condividere

Cleota said...

Congratulations on your blogaversary! That's spectacular! I've been blogging since February of 2010 so still have a long way to go to make a year. I started blogging, because I love paper crafting and wanted to be involved in the online community. Now I spend a lot of time visiting other blogs and oohing and aahing over their projects. I have so much fun with it that I have never regretted my decision to start. I've become addicted to digi stamps and challenges. Recently I was asked to join a design team so I'm starting another new adventure with blogging. I'm always excited to get to know other bloggers and see their projects.

Dawn Edwards said...

Wow What fabulous blog candy! I will celebrate my 1 year blogiversary this month. I started blogging to share my cards with new friends I met on-line and it's evolved into so much more since then.

mudmaven said...

You sure know how to celebrate! WOW. I've been blogging since 2007 and I started as a way to share my creativity. I can't believe how much wonderfulness it has brought into my life. New friends and lots of new inspiration. Keep up the good work! ~chris

Beeceecreativity said...

Mon this is fabulous and fartoo easy.... I have been blogging just a short time...Aug 7, 2009.
This is only after finding out about scrapping online in April 2009. What an amazing learning tool... so glad their are fabulous sites like yours and the many others... truly inspirational. Many thanks... hugs Bev

Christina said...

Congrats! Just found you and i am enjoying your blog. I started 2/10 to enter a card contest and then missed the time. lol It has been a blast though, I have learded so much through blogs like yours. TFS!

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

Congrats and you're over 200 already! I've been blogging since 2009 and I love it. I started making cards years ago, but turned it up a few notches when I needed cards for my cousin who was dying of breast cancer, and I just couldn't find cards that fit - so I started with my own!

Bev said...

Congrats! I still have a long way to go. I started my blog In August 2010, so it is still very new. I started my blog because I wanted to share what I do with people who have similar interests as I do. Need to work at getting more followers. I have become a follower of your blog coz I liked what I saw. Have a lovely weekend.

Unknown said...

Lorraine said...

Ellis said...

Happy blogaversary! =)

Melissa @ M Miranda Creations said...

Congrats on 2 years. I appreciate so many like you who willingly share your creations and teach those like me more about our craft. I have a two blogs. The first one I started to be able to share pictures and going ons about my family with loved ones and friends and then in March of this year I started one to show off my card and other paper creations. It has been a bit harder to keep up with than I'd like. Most of the time I am creating at the last minute and running out the door with the card (or whatever else) and I forget to take pictures. Oh well! I'll get it together sooner or later! Thanks for the opportunity to win a bit of blog candy.

Jan G said...

Congratulations on your 2 years! Being in my mid-fifties (uh, hum) I am slow to learn but retain it fairly well. So, my blogging came with much resistance about a year ago. All my younger scrapping friends insisted I MUST have a blog page. For the first 3 months, I updated it twice...Since then I've gotten better and smarter, and occasionally stumble on a great blog giveaway or hop, so I'm hooked! Esp at DragonDoodles (I love Dustin's images!)See, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

Ms. Jen said...

Hi Lelia! Congratulations on your anniversary. I started my blog at the beginning of 2010. I had just gotten into making cards although I've been scrappin layouts for almost 20 years. I'm not able to work and found that blogland was full of friends and inspiration and decided I needed a place to showcase my creations too. I've been hooked ever since. I've met so many wonderful and creative people. I spend hours just hopping and reading and love every minute of it. Thanks for a chance to become friends. This is my favorite way to meet new people! :)

Maureen Reiss said...

Congrats!!Awesome candy!! I started my blog because I was applying for a DT possition. But I continue because it's fun, and I can share my work w/ my family and friends.
Thanks for the chance to win


Anonymous said...

And thats a great feeling!!!

Heres to the next year, Your in my sidelink :)

Anonymous said...

HAY HAY HAY HAY CHICKIE!!! Congrats on your blog. I wish I could honestly tell you how long ago I started mine but, I can't. You know...short term memory loss...LOL! Anyway, I do know I had one blog and closed it due to a dumb twat who was stalking a friend of mine...Im sure you know who and then I reopened under a new name not too long ago. Just so, I could try out for a DT or two. As for my name of the blog well that speaks for itself... I get all my inspiration for my projects from my friends. Very talented ones!!! HINT HINT!!! LOL!


Lauren said...

Congrats! This is AWESOME candy - thank you for the opportunity to win! I have been blogging since February of 2009. I started blogging because I got a cricut machine, joined the messageboard, and wanted to share my projects.


Sandra P said...

Congrats congrats!! What a generous gift :)

sorry about the 2 deletes above... i misspelled my own blog name...OOPS!
Wow! Congrats!! I was referred her by Dustin Pike!
Your candy is posted on my blog HERE IS THE LINK
I started blogging because I live about 800 miles from my family and it seemed the easiest way to show them pictures and a little about what's been going on with us... once i fell into card-making, it was just a natural progression!

Jenn Zeeb said...

congrats on 2 years. I have only been at this for 2 months, and not to computer literate. Good thing for 16year old sons. Good luck and if I dont win this one I will try again on your third anniv. haha.

Moments by Marla said...

Leila, Congratulations on your two year blogaversary. The candy you have is totally awesome. My problem however is getting the link onto my blog. I just started my blog in July to show friends and family the wedding invitations I made for my step-daughter. I have lots of pictures still on the camera to download - but right now recovering from the wedding and several nasty falls I had at the wedding. Again my problem today is getting the link to my blog site. I have tried it several different times and can't get the photo of the candy. Can anyone help me. Would really appreciate it.

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

How exciting! Congratulations! I've been blogging for a few years and started mostly so that I could share my creations with family members that don't live nearby. But I love, love, love blurfing and getting new ideas! Thanks for the chance to win...crossing my fingers and toes that my number is the lucky one or two!

Moments by Marla said...

I solved my problem in a kind of roundabout way - but it works!

Christine said...

Congrats on you blogaversay. That takes commitment!

I'm so trite. I started blogging on January 1st of this year. I'd been making cards for a while and another cardmaking friend had been encouraging/bugging me to give it a try.

Unknown said...

Happy blogaversary x I have popped your candy on my blog and couldnt resist becoming a follower x I started blogging in January this year!! And I am so pleased I did, I have met some marvellous people, had such a fun time blog-hopping and I have just won my 1st challenge x It seems we are all enjoying it! Like I say........ We are all addicted but noone is at rehab!!! Leigh x

Tricia B. said...

Happy Blogaversary! I started blogging about a month ago and find it a lot like exercise- if you don't force yourself at first you may not get all the great benefits! I have all ready learned different things about the computer and found digistamps and married them to copics! good luck

Nikki said...

Congrats and Happy Blogoversary
I've been blogging for a little over a year and I started blogging because of ebay there where a couple girls that where selling cards there and I was amazed at all the details to them and how talent they where then I visited their blogs and then started my own and love it

Priyanka said...

congratulation for ur Blog anniversary.I am Blogging since April 2010,I am very passionate about art and craft,but I didnt know craft work can be share in this fabulous way so I create one when I was visited some fabulous blogs like "Extreme cards and paper crafting".I also learn a lot in those days from lot of fabulous blog,thanks for this great opportunity.

Kay D said...

Hi! I found you from Dustin's blog!
I've been blogging, wow, I guess about a year and a half now. I started the blog, because I thoroughly enjoy paper crafting, but I'm a tad shy about people seeing my work (insecurity issues- {giggle} ). The blog was supposed to help bring me out of my shell. It's helped a bit, but I still haven't been able to bring myself to go live at a craft show or anything- lol!
Thanks SO much for the opportunity to win such an amazing array of candy- VERY generous of you!

scrappingdragon said...

congratulations !!!! thanx for the chance to win. I have been blogging for 7 months, i started my blog because i love making cards and started doing challenges.

Wow congrats! I've been blogging for almost 2 years(will be in January), I just wanted somewhere I could share what I create and the sometimes random babblings that run through my head when I'm papercrafting. Having only a preschooler around all day means I need to vent it somewhere sometimes, lol. Congrats again!

Wendy said...

I've been blogging since Oct '09 and i'm not sure why I started blogging...maybe it was to show off my work lol or to give other people inspiration (or at least try lol). Thanks so much and keep up the fantastic work =)

Karen Bragg said...

ScrappingBeauty said...

Happy Blogorversary! I am a newbie. I have literally started writing a blog and making cards for challenges since August 29, 2010. I enjoy making cards for the challenges bc it motivates me to create and give myself some time to just do what I like (I am a mother of 3 young girls- 8, 4,2). However, my cards are a simpler and cleaner designs than most- I don't have the time they do ( to do pleating, sewing etc).
Thanks for the chance to win!

Marianne said...

Happy Blogoversary! And thanks for the chance to win this great candy.
I've been blogging for about a month now and I'm already addicted :-)
I started blogging because I couln't react to others bloggers without an ID and so I started a blog with my own cards.
Hope you come to visit my little blog sometime:

Monique Nicole Fox said...

Hi Lelia, Happy Blogaversary! I have only been blogging since last month so I could join in the fun everyone else is having. Along with card making it has been a helpful distraction as I have been having a very difficult year. I am enjoying seeing so many new blogs too. Thanks for the chance to win your awesome candy. :)

Congrats on the anniversary & thanks for a chance to win the candy. I've been blogging for nearly a year & started because I wanted a place to showcase my cards.

Liset Villarino said...

Congratulations on your Blogaversary, I hope to one day have a blog as grand as yours. I started blogging June of this year. I just decided that I loved all the projects I saw and thought that maybe I should share mine with others too. I only have 1 follower so far and I hope to have more in the hear future, but I also have to post more to. Thanks for this chance.

Manasa said...

Happy Blog anniversary...!
I started blogging almost 8 months back...I started when some of my friends insisted that I should showcase my work to the world and learn from others , who are much more talented out there !

Tejal said...

Congrats on your blog anniversary!! I've been making cards for 3 yrs now..and it all started with a trip to a shop that had brought in the first clear stamps in India(yup).
Not knowing how to use them, I turned to the net for help and what amazing info I found..and I got hooked so badly I never want to stop. I always keep searching for new supplies or new techniques!

Congrats again!
p.s. came by through Dustin's blog!

I have two personal blogs. One is an art blog, which I started in January of this year as a way to share my creations and interact with other crafty and creative folks like me. My other blog is a humor blog--just me sharing my views on life and pop culture. I started that blog in March of 2009, as a creative writing outlet. I love to write and I love to make people laugh, and blogging enables me to do both. It's also led me to other wonderful blogs that I love reading each day. Congrats on your two year anniversary!

Congratulations on your Blogaversary, and thank your for the opportunity to win such gorgeous candy.

I started blogging in 2007 focusing mainly on ATCs and circle journals; I then had a break in 2008. In 2009 I caught the rubberstamping bug big time, when i fell in love with The Greeting Farm's Ian & Anya stamps. I've been a fairly active blogger since then, and have made so many wonderful friends all over the world through different crafting blogs.

Trina said...

Seriously, I started blogging because I kept seeing awesome candy like yours and was linking to blog that I'd made for a school project. I didn't feel like it was fair to the candy offerers that my blog was being read by no one. Once I started (about a month ago), it made me actually finish projects. I love to color and had lots of stamps ready for cards. Now that I have a blog (and a few followers), I make sure to complete cards and post them...

Wow - congrats on 2 years - and such fabulous candy! I posted on my blog and linked you on my sidebar. I'm number 107 in your linky list. :)

I've been blogging since 2007 - I started with blogger to showcase my digital scrapbooking creations and then "graduated" to coding my own theme in wordpress and showcasing all sorts of crafty adventures. :)

Rosalee said...

scrappin2babygirls said...

I started blogging about 2 years ago because I got married and moved away from home so I figured people could read up on what was goin on. But I got busy and pretty much forgot about it. I started up again about 2 months ago (at most) to keep track of my (almost 9 month old) daughters milestones and cute things she does.. and ended up getting into the scrap blog world.. I've scraped for about 5.5 years but just realized people blogged about it! so glad i did. thanks for the awesome candy and the chance to win!

Alizabethy said...

What a fab pile of candy - I started my blog as a new years resolution and now am totally addicted to blogland!

Josceline said...

hice mi página hace unos meses ya, pero sólo comencé a utilizarla en junio de este año, todo comenzó porque quería vender mis cosas a crochet a aprender nuevas técnicas

JLJ Designs said...

Thanks for a chance at the sweet candy! I've been blogging about 10 months. I started to give away digital scrapbooking kits. Then I found cardmaking and stamping and fell in love.

Happy Blogaversary!

Happy 2nd Blogaversary Leila! I have only been blogging since July 2010. I kept procrastinating and finally started after excepting an Admin/DT position at Colorful Creations:
Love your blog and that is an awesome package of candy you are offering!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Sarah said...

Happy Blogaversary! I have just started blogging in July, but have been an avid crafter for 8 yrs. I went to enter a card into a challenge and didnèt read all of the rules, so I thought I had to have a blog to enter. LOL. I stuck on it now.

Henriëtte said...

Hello and congratulations.
I have just started blogging this august. I'am still a rookie and learning each day. I started mainly because I love to make cards and want to show them to the world. I found out that it takes some work to maintain my blog (next to working and my family). But I think it is fun to do. I also like to look at blogs from other creative people. Greetings from the Netherlands.

Ms. Petersen said...

I've only been blogging since last week! I've been making cards since the first of the year, but only recently felt comfortable enough to enter them in challenges and blog candy contests. But that's difficult to do if you don't have a blog. What's been wonderful is people have actually left me comments!!! I did not expect that.

Lyse said...

I've been blooging since this month only. My purpose was to show my cards, made in Parchment Craft, embrodery and other techniques. Recently I've discovered challenges so I decided to participate, I'm having lots of fun.

Caroljenks said...

Wow Lelia what gorgeous candy! Congrats on your 2 years of blogging too :)

I started in Jan 2009 as everyone was 'talking' about their blogs and I felt I was missing out! Haven't looked back since!

Thanks for the chance to win :)

Jessica L said...

Happy Blogaversary! I just started blogging a few months ago, shortly after I began papercrafting. I stumbled across a few crafty blogs and thought it would be a great way to get to know others who shared my hobby (ahem...obsession..) ;)

KarenB said...

Congratulations on your blogoversay! I have been blogging for around three and a half years. I first started so I could put my fave scrapbooking creations in one place, instead of in galleries at different forums. Since then my blog has changed and evolved and now I blog nearly every day :)

Knittaroo said...

Happy bloggy birthday! Two years, that's impressive and seems like an impossibly long time from where I'm standing. I just started last week and I'm not sure yet where it's going to take me, but I wanted to try blogging... Mainly because I enjoy crafting and enjoy writing, so why not combine them? :)
