And the Winner is....

Have you ever noticed that when you find something you love, you want to share it with others? It's just too good to keep to yourself.... Kind of like Oprah, I guess, and her "Favorite Things" show. You know the one. It's the show where she gives everyone in her studio audience trinkets like HDTV Refrigerators, Artisan Stand Mixers, and Camcorders.

Well, consider me a small-scale Oprah when it comes to sharing things I love. Like when I kept giving my mother-in-law Bath and Body hand soaps because I loved them so much. Kitchen Lemon, Sun-Ripened Raspberry, Coconut Lime Verbena.... One day I happened to get a good look in her bathroom and realized that she had enough of my favorite hand soaps to open up her own Bath and Body franchise. She loves them; she uses them, but sometimes enough's enough.

I gave one sister a leather journal for Christmas one year. I love all things paper and journal-y. For Hannah it was an Italian link bracelet like mine. I finally bought my running friend the same kind of socks I ran in. They were so soft, my feet did a little dance when I put them on each morning.

So, when I was working on my mosaic for this past Monday, I thought it would be fun to introduce more of my blog friends to something I love by offering a giveway. After a quick Facebook chat, Rebecca generously agreed to have Scrapblog donate a 12x8 Keepsake Album to one lucky reader of mine.

So, with the help of the random generator at Violets are Blue, I'm pleased to announce that ...

is the lucky recipient of one of my favorite things!

Check your e-mail, McVal, for information on how to create and claim your keepsake album.

Because several who left comments said they wished they could see my mosaic images up close, I've added a couple below. Just click on the Scrapblog logo for a larger view.

And thanks to each of you who left comments last Monday. This was my first giveaway, and it was definitely one of my favorite things to do!

Roban wasn't it kind of Rebecca at Scrapblog to agree to donate an album....and very good PR!

Loved reading about how you share the things you love with family and friends.....I was smiling as I was reading.

One of my friends keeps giving me bath soap, she must love them as much as you do!

BTW I can do with more running socks....hint hint! LOL

Congratulations McVal you are going to get soooo hooked on Scrapblog!

It was lovely viewing the older scrapblogs Roban...lovely trip down memory lane.

Big hugs

i take a long time in picking up a gift for someone as it has to be something i would have to like it enough. so, i do understand that, dear. so often, it was so nice, i feel a little sad to have to part with i end up always buying two. That may be a good reason why i end up having too much stuff - like a double blessing thing. win win!! ;P
