***Blog Candy***

This month marks the end of my first twelve months as an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! I can't believe a whole year has gone by already; it has been a wonderful year for me and I've loved every minute. The whole experience of sharing my love of creating with friends - old and new - either through classes and workshops or using this forum is one I treasure and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to do so.

So to celebrate my first anniversary as a demo, I am offering some blog candy. I don't have a photo yet (camera battery died) but it is a mixed pack of goodies all presented in a gorgeous treat box (you'll just have to take my word for it that it's gorgeous until I can take a photo!). How I will mail the treat box to the winner, I don't yet know, but I'll worry about that later, LOL!

To be in with a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on any of my postings between now and the end of the month, and then on 1st October one name will get drawn at random. Sound easy? Sure is!

And speaking of anniversaries, today is DH and my 20th wedding anniversary. Boy, did those 20 years fly by! We are having dinner out with a group of friends on Saturday, but right now I am sitting next to a totally GOJUS bouquet of pink roses DH sent me. They smell so beautiful and yes, roses are my favourite flower. Here's a photo of us 20 years ago ...

We sure do look a lot younger, LOL! Not a grey hair in sight!!! I have just this morning finished scrapbooking our wedding photos - yes, folks, it took me 20 years! (Nah, actually it was the first thing I scrapped when I first started, but I did it all again just recently as I couldn't stand looking at the awful job I'd made of it first time when I was so inexperienced!) Apart from DH, my SIL and I, no-one who will be at our anniversary dinner was present at our wedding, so I thought I'd better finish the album so they could look at the piccies!

Well, enough for today. Hope you are having a wet day too, like us (we desperately need the rain). Don't forget to visit often during the month and leave your comment for the candy!
