Hope you will all love it and hope you will try to win it! All you have to do is 1) Become a follower to this blog, and 2) Comment at the end of the next post, and make sure I can get through to your blog if your number is picked. If your number is picked, I will get your mailing address quickly and send it out right away to you. I promise it will be judged very unbiased and fairly, and not by me.

Details of the giveaway!

For the Decorating portion of 'Something Special' here is a Country French set of molds for the kitchen, these are faux molds to hang on your wall. They are not antique, and are for decorative use only. (porcelain)

for the scrapbooking portion of 'Something Special' here is a set from Storytellers club, designed by me titled "Believe" with 4 sheets matching paper. Also some sweet vintage valentine stickers and a beautiful Victorian twin frame for your wall.

I put this scrapbooking combination together to usher in the Spring, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. 6 12 x 12 patterned papers
from DCWV, cutouts from Cricut, borders from Martha Stewart, 2 yards of great taffeta leaf ribbon, and other embellishment elements.
A beautiful Spring Scene in this lovely bone china teacup and saucer from England. Can't you just feel the Spring coming with these daffodils.
And check out the handmade Valentines from 2 posts back. They are part of the giveaway too.

Winter Centerpiece!

Here is a look at my winter centerpiece, this is quite a change from the Christmas one on the dining room table. I am sure it will change again in a couple of months to look so spring like. These flowers are from Jacob and Kelli's wedding last February. I thought I might as well get some more use out of them. And the cloth medallion underneath it all is very old. It was given to me by my Mother-in-law many years ago, and it adorned her dining room table as my husband was growing up. There are things from Robert's, Mikasa, Pfalzgraf and even Argentina. I love the calla lilies in the arrangement. They look so real, but they are plastic ones.

Some favorite layouts

I think this one is a definite contender for one of my favorite layouts that I have ever done.
Think I like it so much, because Tiffany truly was charmed by Isaac, back in the fall of 2004. This Layout was done at the end of 2005. A Journaling block was hiding behind one of the photos.
Click on the layout for the details. There is so much dimension in this one!

I've added more layouts!

Check them all out!
There are plenty, and even more to come. I love this layout of granddaughter
Evelyn in her darling Snow White
costume. She absolutely loved trick-
or-treating with her cousins. Could
there be a cuter Snow White anywhere.
I think Not!
*just click on photos and they will
enlarge to show details.
