Exciting News- and a Giveaway!!

Hi Everyone!  
My exciting news is......
I was chosen to be a part of the new Getting Cricky with K Andrew Design Team!!
I am truly honored to be a part of something that is so inspiring to me and many others.  Thank you Kristal, Brenda, and Kathy for having me- and I can't wait to "meet" my fellow DT members!!

I was working on this post (and had no idea) when I got the news (above)- so I had to edit!
Now for the Giveaway!!
I received a new Campin' Critters cartridge from Kristal Andrew the other day.  Miss K. picked my project as the winner of her Simply Sunday- Let's get Campy challenge! 
I was so excited to win, because I just adore Kristal and love her blog so much!!


My only problem with winning the Campin' Critters cartridge-- 
--I already have it!
Here's my project that won.

Now for the fun part....

I am "re-gifting" the cartridge that I won, and want to pass it on to someone else who loves Kristal and her blog as much as I do!

Here's what you have to do.....
You don't have to be a follower of mine (but I'd love it if you were).
  You DO have to be a follower of Getting Cricky with K Andrew, AND you need to have her blinkie on your side bar.
Please leave a comment below and tell me the name of your favorite blog (a link to it would be awesome- then we can all check them out).
For extra chances-
Post about my giveaway on your blog (and leave another comment).
For an extra, extra chance-  :)
Post my button on your side bar- and tell me you did.

I'll pick a winner- with the help of my friend Random.org- 
on June 5th.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Camping!
