Blogaversary Blog Hop Winners Announced~


Hello my sweet friends...
Wow what a fun blogaversary blog hop this third year was! You all made it so much fun! Thank you so much for making this year's birthday celebration the best one yet! I enjoyed stopping at each designer's blogs and admiring the beautiful work they all did, not to mention how amazingly talented each one is! I was truly stunned at the beauty of those projects this weekend! Just gorgeous! I also had so much fun reading through every single comment that you all left for me! I am thrilled that so many of you liked my banner and birthday card, but more importantly I hope you all realize the significance of that banner and what it means to me. It really does remind me of each of you because without you wonderful friends, Jo's Scrap Shack would not be here. So thank you!


I would also like to welcome the new followers and say a huge thank you to you as well! I promise you that my blog will in some way, bring you inspiration, motivation and laughs! I try really hard and do my absolute best to keep my blog interesting. For those of you who are new, I have a ton of health issues that really put a huge damper on my life. If you would like to get to know more about me and my health, you can read about it HERE.

Ok so we have 2 lucky winners to announce!! Before I reveal the winner's names, I just want you to know how I chose them. For the U.S./Canada winner, I randomly selected one of the participating designer's blogs and once chosen, used random.org to select the winner from the comments posted on their blog post. For the International winner, again I chose one of the participating designer's blogs and once chosen, went through each comment and wrote down the names of the international followers on little strips of paper. I placed the strips of paper in a small container and had my daughter pull from the two names! Yep 2! I thought I would have seen more then that but that is quite okay! Two is enough to draw a winner right? :) I wanted to keep it as fair as possible. I do not like to make anyone unhappy and I wish I could have something to give away to each of you! I really do!  But unfortunately, only 2 giveaways which means only 2 of you will win today.  So lets get to it, shall we? :) 

Our U.S Winner is
 
Now that's the Cutiest little Elephent ever!!! I just LOVE him !!!! and the cut little bag to match too. So glad I found your blog by way of Jo's and became a follower too...

         Congratulations Dotty!!!

 And now for our International Winner




Love the shadow box card and the cake box. I really must try the shadow box technique one day. All this chocolate and cake on offer on the blogs is great but it is just as well I am hopping between them to burn off the calories!
