1000 sheets of paper!

1000 sheets for A thousand sheets... again!

yay!!! I sooo want to win!!!!


Today is a very special day here at the A thousand sheets of paper blog. :)



Remember last year when I kept track of how many different sheets of paper I cut into as I crafted, then celebrated reaching 1000 sheets along with my blog-o-versary with some super special candy? Well... I did it again and this year not only did I miss my July 16th blog-o-versary date, it also took me a couple weeks longer to reach the 1000 sheet milestone. What can I say? I must have been playing more with scraps. ;)

But we are here now and I am so excited to share my paper crafting craziness with all of you for a second year in a row, LOL!



Because I'm in the mood to celebrate (and clear out some paper) I've got A THOUSAND 6x6 sheets of paper that I'm giving away! Wanna see what 1000 sheets of paper looks like? Take a look-see...


That's a lot of paper, huh? Perhaps just a bit much to send all to one person, so I'm breaking it apart into five candies of 200 sheets each. And the fun doesn't stop there! I couldn't celebrate another wonderful, exciting, fantabulous and simply amazing year of stamping and blogging without throwing some stamps into the mix as well! So I have collected stamps from some of my most favorite companies into one MEGA CANDY!

•and a Sweet November stamp from each release of this past year (Raspberry Flitter Friend, Briar and Sonata, Princess Isadora, Splash and Wave, Penelope and Juniper, Gemini, Darby and Dazzle, Milk and Cookies Christmas boy, Neva snowflake fairy, Fairwee Josie, jar and sentiments)

Wondering what you need to do for a chance to win all of these plus some yummy paper? Well, because this is pretty big and I'm pretty excited about it, I really want to spread the word sooooo... in order to be eligible to win the grand prize you have to post about the 1000 sheets blog candy on your own blog (feel free to right click and use the paper photo above), linking directly back to this post.
