I will keep this post up and running until Midnight on March 31st, so until then, happy scrapping, and thanks for playing!!! :)


  1. I'm so glad you let us know it's your birthday!! Happy Birthday, girl!!!!!

  2. first of all, this candy is FABULOUS.
    second, i've got it posted in my sidebard!
    third, i'm SO excited to be able to see you the day BEFORE your birthday (and if i stay late enough, i can celebrate in the wee hours with you!)! it's been TOO LONG!
    fourth, my favourite birthday memory would be when i turned 12 and my dad gave me my first TEN-SPEED BIKE. i looked ridiculous on that thing, but i thought i was the coolest thing since sliced bread! (i was right, of course!) the bike came after i'd gotten all my presents and i thought the festivities had ended. :)

  3. Hey Adina,
    I thought I had been following your blog. But I don't know what happened. I'm now following your blog, have your candy posted in my sidebar. A memory of my year my b-day landed on Friday the 13th. I remember falling and spliting my chin.

  4. WOW!! What fabulous candy to be giving away!! So funny in honor of YOUR birthday you are giving away a present!! LOL But happy early birthday!

    Oh...and my fondest birthday memory- definitely has to be my 19th birthday when I had my daughter Emma :) She was just a month old and was the best birthday/Christmas present I could have ever gotten! She saved me from doing alot of stupid things including an abusive ex! My little life saver:)

    I will link this back to my blog and let ya know I did!

  5. What a fantabulous way to celebrate your birthday!! Your blog has been linked has been on my sidebar for ages (with all the Dollies) but I'm a follower now too. I've posted the piccie and candy there too. I don't really have a stand-out birthday memory but I really enjoyed going out for coffee and cake with my girlfriends last year - those girls are the BEST!

  6. Ms Adina you are sidebared!! LOL I will check out those Dollies as well and hopefully I will have the time to get on some of those challenges!Thanks again sweety!

  7. I've played along with 2 of the design challenges for this month, the color challenge, royal blue, light blue, and lime green, and the elements challenge, yellow, and sun. Here's my page.

  20. OMG I watched "The Jane Austin Book Club" this last Saturday and I loved it, I just want to read each of the books again, my birthday is 26th of this wonderful month and I have just entered in the "Lucky" challenge at Design Dollies also, wow what a co-incidence, my dream is to obviously scrap but to also be in a book club just like the movie, so if you are interested I have another lady who would join us obviously online, I can ashamedly admit to not reading any of her books, I am an accountant via online adult eduction so missed the wonderful year 11 and 12 english. I just don't know which book to read first. If you can enlighten me, I cannot believe I found this wonderful blog. Melxxx

  21. Forgot to mention my favourite birthday memory is my 40th (almost 2 years ago) mum and dad, my best friend Jan, sister and husband and of course my gorgeous little 1 year old (at the time) through a little dinner party for me, it was such a surprise, I enjoyed every minute. Love Melxxx

  22. Such a gorgeous candy! wud luv to have those.. Anyway Happy birthday to u, wish u all the happiness and have a great one!
    I've just turned 33 last January and had celebrated it with my beloved girlfriends and families. Had rent out a place for a birthday getaway BBQ and the girlfriend surprise me with cakes and cuppies!
