I woke up this morning after missing my normal favorite release day forum from the night before and I found this...
How Freakin' Cool Is That! I took a slight pause to make sure that I wasn't Seeing or Dreaming for that matter. At first I thought it was some fancy feature Papertrey Ink had on their page to detect when viewers are on there site and display their Then I read the rest of it again. I started screaming and shaking...almost scared my little one too. (lol). After a few quick in and out breaths...I checked my email and  saw that someone else noticed my name too. I immediately sent an email to PTI to make sure it was real. It didn't take long for them to confirm that YES, I had indeed Won FREE STAMPS for a WHOLE YEAR!!! Whoo Hoo...(did my Happy Dance and alll...still have to pinch myself sometimes). Can't wait to get my first order. I'm soooo Stoked! Shout out to Papertrey Ink and Nichole Heady for offering such a Wonderful and Fantabulous Prize!
