Time for a Contest!


First, a peek at the August kit. Can't wait to show you more--loving the fabric tape in this kit already!! Stay tuned...

Okay--I did a bit of housekeeping this weekend, and I have come to a realization that I have a serious addiction to punches. Now, I'm not even going to kid you--we're talking a major collection here. I started teaching scrapbook classes way back in 2000, and the first class I ever taught was Punch Art. Oh--you know what I'm talking about, don't you? Yep--I've been working on this lovely hobby using punches for ten years now. And this weekend, I made it a point to count them. So I thought it would be fun to do a contest to reveal the number.

Take a guess...How many punches do I own? The person to come closest to guessing without going over will win a free August Main WIP Kit!!
Leave your first name and contact info, along with your guess in the comment section of today's post. I'll announce the winner on Wednesday's blog!!
Good luck!!
