A Layout and Blog Candy Winners

Good morning!  I'm playing along with the ColourQ Challenge for the first time.  I've been following Christina's blog for a little while now and have always adored what she creates for the challenges, so I thought it was time to give it a try.  I made a quick layout with a couple of Basic Grey papers and letters of Marcel.  My journaling:  "I know that at almost six years old you are not a baby, but there is something about the feel of your soft face that gives me comfort.  I love to cuddle with you and touch your sweet baby face.  I love you Marcel."  I love this picture of him deep in thought on our vacation a few weeks ago.  My handsome little man looking all grown up with his hands in his pockets.
And now onto the winners of my blog candy!  First up is Jill W.  Jill is the winner of the Verve New Mercies stamps and PaperCrafts Magazine. 

 Our second winner of the CARDS magazine and PTI Forest Friends is Becki Jo

 And my third winner for those of you who don't think the first commenter ever wins...is Andrea R.  Andrea, please email me too!

Winners, please email me at lmangan@cinci.rr.com so that I can get your goodies in the mail! If I don't hear from you by next Friday, September 2nd, I will choose a new winner.
