Happy Birthday to me, Happy Blogaversary too, and a RAK for you!

*This RAK is now closed*
Congrats to the winner, Debby W!

My scrap room recently underwent an overhaul. During this reorganization project, I found lots of goodies in my stash that I had not been using. I mean, brand new stuff that had never even been opened! I threw them all in a bag and tried to figure out what in the heck to do with them. I even had two copies of the same book (I got one as a gift; for once, it wasn't about me buying something I already had because I forgot I had it! LOL). I realized that my blogaversary was fast approaching and that my birthday also happened to fall within the same month. On March 14th, I'll be 39. Thus, the idea to combine both the blogaversary and my birthday into one big RAK was born. Once I decided that, well, I just kept adding to the RAK. Everyone knows I'm a shopaholic. I was in Hobby Lobby and found these great trims on sale. I got a yard each for me and a yard each for my RAK winner. I found some Whiff of Joy stamps at a more than reasonable price, so I got one for the RAK winner. I found some K&Co trims at Tuesday Morning, so I got those for my RAK winner, and so on. By the time I was ready to post, this is the RAK that had accumulated:
And who knows what else I might add to it before drawing the winner?

So, what do you have to do to win it all, you ask? It's super easy. You don't even have to become a follower of my blog (although that might make it easier to find out if you won). I'd rather you became a follower because you liked my work than because you want the RAK, so don't feel pressured to follow it. You don't have to post on Facebook or Twitter. I don't have accounts there, anyway, so I don't have a way to check it. You don't have to post on various scrapbook or craft forums. All you have to do is:

1. Leave a comment on this post
2. Add my RAK to the sidebar on your blog
3. Put your info into Mr. Linky

That's it. Nothing else is needed.

I'll use random.org to draw the RAK on my birthday, March 14. You have until March 14th at 5:16 p.m. to enter. If I remember correctly, that's the time I was born. Maybe. If not, it sounds good and that's the time I'm using, because I'm too lazy to check my birth certificate or ask my mom.
