"Grow Your Blog" Give-Away Winner!

A little late on announcing the winner
of my "Grow Your Blog" Party Give-Away...
...So here we go!
I made this snowflake mini-journal
in memory of my mother who loved snowflakes.
She always contended some of her best friends were flakes!
The mini-journal is made from
one 12" x 12" piece of patterned scrapbook paper.

Two pieces of covered chipboard were added to make the front and back covers.
Because of how the 12" x 12" piece of paper is cut and folded
it creates a pocket for a tag on either the top or side of each page.

I then added bits of sparkle with rhinestones...
silver embossing powder...
Rock Candy Stickles...
silver trimmed ribbons...
and coordinating papers.

Here is a pic of each page and its tag ---

Then it was time for the drawing!
So I printed all the comments and cut them apart ---

That's a lot of comments! 
Thank you all who visited my blog and left a comment.  :)

Next I folded them and put them in the official drawing bowl---
(No random drawing selector here!)

And look whose name I pulled out!

Denise Bryant!

How ironic that the winner is another Denise - huh?
I appreciate each and every one of you and your kind comments.
They make me smile!  :)
Stay tuned for another give-away soon.  It's a surprise!
blessings, denise  :D


  1. Hi Denise, I got your email and sent you my info. Delighted to have won your prize! I love snowflakes and snowmen so I know I'll enjoy your special mini journal. Thanks so much!

    1. Oh, no! I sent you the mini-journal around the middle of February. Have you received it by now? I hope it's not wandering around out there lost somewhere. :(

      Let me know and I will make another one for you. Won't be the snowflake one though - I don't have that particular paper collection anymore. :D

  2. Congratulations to Denise! I'm sure she's going to love your mini-journal; it's so clever and cute. I'd like to try making one of those someday soon. Thanks for the many ideas!

  3. Congratulations to Denise! I also had a fun time deciding how to pick a winner. There must be an easier way:-)


  4. Sent you an email with my info but haven't heard back from you. I notice no new posts here on your blog either. I hope all is well!

    enjoyed reading it, you happen to be a great author.
