Happy Birthday to the SHOE!


Wow! I can't believe it has been a YEAR! Happy Birthday to the Shoe! We are throwing a celebration today!!!!! First....some CANDY!!! Check out this yummy candy you can win here on the Shoe:

Candy includes: Close to my Heart Everyday Celebration Cardmaking kit, which consists of 4 patterned papers, 2 sheets of cardstock, 16 cards with envelopes (shaped cards!), 1 stampset, 1 mini medley accents set, 5' of chocolate grosgrain ribbon, 1 Chocolate distressing ink, 1 dutch blue distressing ink, 50 3D foam squares, 1 sponge, and 1 instructional brochure. AND! a full pack of Autumn Harest Textured Cardstock!

Does this look yummy to you?? There are several ways to win:
you will get one entry by leaving a comment on this post
you will get one entry by completing the special birthday challenge listed further down
you will get one entry for being a follower that has left a comment on this post! ( this just means, automatic entry is NOT given just for being a follower, you have to have left a comment on this post as a follower of our blog to get the extra entry!)

Do all 3 and that is 3 entries! Winner will be announced on Friday, March 12!

So here is your special birthday challenge for is a sort of 'scavenger hunt!' You will have 10 items you need to put onto your project. You can't combine any of the items...each one must be it's own item (make sense?) Here is your list:
