So...speaking of Boot Loot.....I still remember when I had the contest where I gave away some goodies to come up with that name for "my" Blog Candy. You all had some great and funny suggestions!! I love the name Boot Loot, and hope it's not confusing to anyone.
Could I drag this out any longer??? ;)
What I will be putting up as Boot Loot, is THIS:
If you can't quite tell by the pictures, you win:
1) the stamp set Sweet Centers
2) a set of 12 Sweet Treat Cups
3) a 1-3/4" Circle Punch!!!!!
All that you need to make treats for your friends and loved ones all year round!!!!!!!!
What do you have to do? Well, I have been in a wonderful mood since my husband has been home (I get him for about 4 whole weeks before he leaves again!!!!) so I thought I would hold a contest that would continue to bring smiles to everyone by having people tell me their funniest stamping/crafting blooper. I will draw the winner at random (using random.org) at 8:00 pm on September 14th. I will announce the winner on Tuesday, September 15th. You do have to be a US resident to enter and win (because this is current SU! merchandise, and those are SU!'s rules) so I'm sorry to those outside of the US. :(
I will share something funny that happened to me once. For those of you that use glitter and embossing powder a lot, you probably do what I do. I store them in Ziploc sandwich containers so that I can just dip my CS into them and not have to worry about getting glitter/powder all over the place. Well, one day when I was happily blinging some things up with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter, my darling daughter Sarah who was probably 2 at the time, comes over to peek up on the table, puts her little hands up on the edge, but mistakenly puts them over the edge of the glitter container which then flipped it up and down onto her little face/head. She was COVERED in Dazzling Diamonds!! While glitter was a bit of a fashion statement a few years back (remember all of the creams/lotions/gels with glitter in them???), glittery tears (literally) were not. It didn't hurt her, but it filled her eyes and I was so worried that even though Dazzling Diamonds is pretty fine, it would scratch her eyes or something. I took her to the bathtub, rinsed her off, and did my best to rinse her eyes. That, along with her blinking removed just about all of the glitter. For the next few hours there would be little spots of glitter that were blinked to the corner of her eyes, but I was happy and lucky to discover that no harm was done. She also had glitter in her hair for quite a while. It settled on her scalp and lots of scrubbing never got it all out at once. :)
So....what's your stamping blooper? Share away and spread the word. I know that this is a very popular stamp set and I'm sure your friends would like the chance to get it and everything they need to make some "Sweet Treats" for the holidays.
PS - I will continue to post between now and next Tuesday but will link to this post in any subsequent posts before the announcement of the winner.
