Hello There Old Favorite and Some Milestone Blog Candy

Today’s post marks my 500th post on this blog.  Wow!  Time flies!  It just doesn’t seem like it’s been that long.  I thought I should give the blog a little bit of an update, so I redesigned the blog header using My Digital Studio and gave it a Spring look.  Easy-peasy!

I decided to pull out an old favorite set that I haven’t used in long time, Betsy’s Blossoms.  I just used some new colors and other new products with it to give it a fresh look.  I still love this set!  The large flower is embossed with gold embossing powder, and I added some other fun gold embellishments as well.

Hello There Old Friend


Since 500 posts deserves something to mark the occasion, I decided some blog candy is in order.  Just leave a comment at the bottom of this post by 4 pm (CST) on Monday, and I’ll randomly pick one winner to receive this:

What I have most enjoyed about these past 500 posts is getting to make new friends through my computer.  I love hearing from all of you, and I am so thankful for the comments and support!

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
