One Year Blogoversary & A Toot!



Hello all, yes it's been 1 year since I started my blog and I have loved every minute of it! I could have never imagined where my scrapping journey was going to take me. From designing on the most amazing teams to even starting my own challenge blog 2S4Y with my best friend Kazan.

 To celebrate my Blogoversary I thought I would give away come yummy blog candy, that I will give to a random winner. 

All you need to do to be entered is to leave a comment in this post. I will draw a random winner Thursday evening and announce the winner on my blog Friday morning. 
Thank you for participating! 


Now for my Toot...




Yes you can say that Kazan & I are officially 

COVER GIRLS!!! 

Former 2 sketches 4 You Designer, Aashild Ruud, is celebrating the 5 year anniversary of her Craft Magazine: Ett trykk and 2S4Y is featured in the Magazine which hits News Stands in Norway on February 1st. 

Thank You Aashild 
I had tons of fun working with you on this awesome venture 
Congratulations on 5 years!

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

bigguysmama said...

This is my 1st visit to your blog and thoroughly enjoyed it! You may think your life is boring, but I don't think any of us readers would have the same opinion! :)

You are so creative! Wish I had that much creativity in my little finger! I'm a scrapper that hasn't been able to scrap for nearly a year! Trying to figure out how to change that.

Please enter me into your Blogoversary contest. Thank you so much.

Blessings,
