{DOING LIFE} 1,000 Follower Giveaway


06 February 2014


{CELEBRATING 700 to 800 Followers - GIVE AWAY}

To each of my old and new Followers, a huge thank you and tons of hugs, for always making the effort to visit my little space in blog land and for all the wonderful inspirational comments you leave behind.  Without you, blog land would be a dull and quite place to be.
I have recently reached 831 Followers and to say thank you to each and everyone of my Followers, a very special, generous and talented artist, Lisa Decosse, is sponsoring my Give Away - thank you so much Lisa.  Some of you might have come to know Lisa in blog land.  Lisa is the owner of the wonderful inspirational Path of Positivity Challenge and I am very proud and honoured to be on her POP design team. Here is a bit more about the awesome Lisa Decosse, herself:

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles
Are you interested in digital sentiments, papers and other embellishments? How about a badge made especially for your blog? If these are items you are interested in, you are going to want to check out Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. My name is Lisa and with over 100 freebies to choose from, and new ones added weekly, I just might have what you are looking for. Along with the freebies I offer, I also create blog badges and am in the process of putting some kits together. Additionally, there is always inspiration to be found among my many different features. I'd love for you to pop by and visit me. I hope you have a blast!
... and of course Lisa has also designed my 800 Follower badge as seen above.

Lisa is sponsoring the following digital gifts to each and everyone who enters my 700 to 800 Follower Give Away, by following the few rules set out below:

Apart from the above prizes for everyone linking up to my little give away, Lisa is also sponsoring the following prizes, which will be determined by Random.org:

{will receive all of these digital goodies below}

{will receive all of these digital goodies below}

  2. Like my FACEBOOK Pages here and here (This is NOT  a requirement, but would really be nice!!) 
  3. Link your NAME to MR LINKY below.
  4. Pop my 800 Follower Badge with a link to this post, in your sidebar (This is NOT a requirement, but would really be nice!!)
  5. Leave me a COMMENT on this post below letting me know that you are a Follower of my blog  (and whether you liked my Facebook Page or not), and have entered your name with Mr Linky here - and of course please leave me your email address so that I can get your prize off to you, once the Give Away has closed.
You are all winners, but the Grand Prize and 1st to 8th Prize Winners will be announced on Monday, 10 March 2014.

Wishing you all the best of luck.
