Happy Anniversary!!!

It's hard to believe that this month marks one year for my blog.   I remember when I was so hesitate to start one.  Tammy over at Paper Pastimes of a Scrapbooking Mimi was the one who suggested I start one. I didn't have a clue where to begin or what to do.  In June of 2009, I took the step and started to create my blog, but it wasn't until November that I started to post my layouts.   Sandi Clarkson at  Softside of Sandi left me my first comment.  Now it's one year later, 242 followers, over 29,000 hits, and four Design Teams!  I've made so many friends and have learned so much from all of you that share this wonderful hobby of scrapbooking! 
So what's an anniversary without a little something special?
If you'd like a chance to win this anniversary blog candy, please leave me a comment. I would love for you to become a follower if you aren't already. If you want, post this on your blog and spread the word.   My first post was made on November 23rd, so that is when I will pick a winner!  
For all of you who have been so kind and caring this past month since I got sick, I'm getting better slowly.  The second antibiotic is starting to help my chest congestion, but I'm still have problems with fluid in my ears.  I forgot how painful it can be and how dizzy it can make you feel. 
I plan on taking it easy again this weekend.  I've put together some paper and embellishments for a few layouts and I hope to get them completed this weekend.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
. . . Debbie

Wow a year, happy anniversary dear friend, and from that first blog post to 4 design teams, had some great growth in there, I love your work, and so glad that the 2nd lot of antibiotics is working okay, fluid in the ears does not sound like fun, here's to a super speedy recovery my friend. Hope you have a great weekend. Melxx

Deb: I would never be bored looking at your old family photos. They teach us about where we came from. You do a beautiful job of showing the viewer how important these people are to you. The time, detail, and work are so worthwhile. Thanks for sharing them and congrats on your one year anniversary.
