I'm Giving Away A Halloween Paperbag Album in Honor of My 100th Post!!!

Do you want to win this? If so, then here's your chance! Please read on to see what you need to do. But first, let me share this handmade Halloween Paperbag Album with you. The cover consists of a ghost and candycorn paperpiecing along with a sticker adhered to cardstock that reads Happy Halloween. There is a total of 14 pages measuring 5"x5" approx. There are 4 pockets holding over-sized tags that you can use for an additional photo or journaling. One page has a 'lift up' mini page to add an additional photo or journaling as well. Along with this album, I will also include a 12x12 sheet of "Reminisce" stickers (two are not shown as they're already in the album). I will also include a some brads, eyelets, ribbon, buttons, small tags, and scraps of patterned paper so that you can decorate your tags or add more embellies to the pages to make it uniquely yours.

So, what do you have to do to win? Easy! Just leave a comment telling me that you'd like to win this adorable paperbag album, and leave me the name of your favorite scrapping blog. I love finding new blogs about scrapping. You can help me do this. It's that simple. This is a THANK YOU for having 45 followers as of today and for me reaching my 100th post since February. It's been a wonderful experience! Note: You need to be a follower or sign on as a follower at the time of entry in order to be eligible.

I'll be drawing a name next Monday--the 19th in the afternoon. I will post the winner that evening.

Good Luck Everyone!
