Here's my contribution :D

Before I get into today's contest details, I want to remind you to stick around! Next week is freebie BLOWOUT BONANZA! You won't want to miss it! I have 5 brand new products to share with you FREE! But, you'll need to stop by my blog daily, because the linkies will be valid for one day only! Steph will also be sharing a week of freebies with you next week!

Today, for your chance to win both halves of And Many More we thought we'd double the workload - and the prize! So HOUSEWIVES take off your rubber gloves, and get ready to search for answers to TWO questions - the first answer is on my blog, to a question about Steph: What is Steph's guilty pleasure? and the second answer can be found on Steph's blog to this question about me: What is my favorite coffee beverage? A winner/s will be drawn to win the FULL COLLAB! That's right folks, both parts - a huge birthday kit for one or more of you! But you have to answer both questions!

Good luck! (Steph isn't always up as early as I am, so the answer to the question about me may not be posted quite yet - so be sure to check back! Remember, all participants will get an email from us this weekend with a little something inside!

Feliz Cumpleanos Day 3! {Contest}

Hola! Well, we've had two winners so far, and como minimo tres to go! I hope you guys are liking what you see. Don't forget to stick around for the rest of the month - we've got even more fun up our digital sleeves!

Congrats to all of you who found my favorite number hidden on Steph's blog yesterday! te amo el numero 47! Congrats to Jennifer Cuevas, I will email you in a bit! (26 was also a good guess, since it's the number in my kit preview - but that's just my age!) It's a pretty straightforward story to how it all began, and I'll share - I often get weird looks when I tell people my favorite number because it's so strange. I like to be a little different - so way back when in sixth or seventh grade a friend asked us what our favorite numbers were. One friend said cuatro (4) and another said siete (7) - so I said cuarenta y siete (47)! Since that day, the number has haunted me! It's been lucky for me (if I get a raffle ticket that ends in 47, I usually win), it pops up everywhere - my home phone number has a 47 in it, my husbands cell phone has it, the house we moved into had it multiple times in the address, I see signs with it all over the place...and it haunts my friends too! I had a friend who went to Ireland and it popped up all over and she sent me pictures - which I loved!

So, I decided that i would toss in a bonus contest (along with your chance to win Steph's part of our kit "y muchas mas")! Anyone who sends me a photo with the number 47 in it by Friday will get a nice coupon to my store! (You can take a picture of something with the #47 in it or on it or, if you can't think of anything - you can make me a pretty picture of my favorite number!) Email your images to

I was going to share some CT layouts today, but this post is already getting long so I guess they will wait until manana!

To win Steph's part of And Many More (the reason you're here today) answer this question: What is Steph's favorite kind of ethnic food? (the answer is on my blog) and email your reply to we will choose one correct answer to win her half of the kit - and stop back tomorrow for another chance to win my kit!

Hasta Manana Amigos!

(Maybe I'll share a little about my obsession with this number tomorrow!) Good luck! (Rumor has it you'll have to spend a minute or two looking around to find the answer you're looking for!)

Birthday Bash Introduction and Contest!

I have so much to tell you today, I don't even know where to begin! I guess I will start with this:

and then remind you about this (which starts today!)

This past Friday Steph celebrated her birthday and mine is approaching at the end of the month (the 30th) so we have teamed up to bring you lots of fun for the rest of the month and it all starts with the release of a new kit called And Many More.

Steph (
Scrappy Cocoa) and I teamed up to bring you two kits that can be combined to make one huge kit. My birthday stuff is a little more girly while hers is a little more boyish. This week we will have tons of chances for you to win this kit, one or both halves, get freebies, and more!

For a chance to win Steph's part of the kit (shown below) answer this question (the answer can be found on or in my blog!) and email you answer to: by Midnight CST tonight and we will draw one of the correct answers to win! What is Steph's favorite color? And here's here part of the collab:

Stop by tomorrow to see how you can win my half of And Many More and learn a little about me while you're at it! Don't forget about my big birthday sale! I will be back tomorrow with CT layouts and more fun for you!
