Thank you, Pearl, for my uber-cute bligityblog!

The other day, I received the most exciting email E.V.E.R.

Actually, there were two. Apparently, the king of Bhutan has passed away and has chosen little ol' me to collect a rather hefty lump sum. I shan't be sharing the amount, as I hear that when you're rich, people start coming out of the woodwork. I don't want my long-lost cousin Ernesto showing up at my doorstep with a business proposition for me.

Let's just say, I may soon be living large.

But, even more exciting, I won a runner-up prize from Pearl over at Pearl's Paperfections for a custom blog header!

I can't even describe how excited I was. (Cliff probably can. He was giving me strange looks all night.)

I recently discovered Pearl's blog when Jennifer, my buddy over at Scrapping Daze proclaimed her uber-fan status. Pearl is a phenomenal scrapbooker, and definitely deserves a huge following! Her use of colour, texture, and layering is incredible!

Check out Pearl's gorgeous header-work above. Whaddaya think?

I was so freakin' excited to get this posted to my blog today - I feel like I've been given the most awesome gift (and I don't even have to send my credit card info to Bhutan to collect it!)

Of course, when Pearl asked me if I thought she should do more giveaways for custom blog headers, I told her that people would be beating down her door for them! Please pop by Pearl's blog and let her know what you think!

Enjoy your weekend, y'all!


  1. It's beautiful! :D
    I'm getting my blog re-done, and I CAN'T WAIT!

    ps - I'm having a giveaway - check it out @

  2. Hi Teri! Your blog header is totally wonderful!! I only clued in the other day that it was you who was the other runner up winner and I meant to congratulate you and then I forgot. So congratulations you lucky lady!! A piece of Pearl's art is something to be treasured and I am so happy to know that you found Pearl through me! She truly is amazing. I LOVE the photo in it too!!

    I was so hoping that your kit would have come yesterday so you could have played with it this weekend. On the other hand, mine is about half used by now and when you are totally loving using yours, I'll be mourning the loss of mine! LOL The rub ons were not in the kit. They were from my stash, but the rest was in the kit. I'll make sure that I mention in future posts, what I may have added in. :) I just finished my second LO and am onto the third now! I'm so happy that Rob is at a LaCrosse game with his buddy so I don't have to feel quite as guilty about ignoring him while I scrap. Hmmm, maybe he likes the silence??? ;) Have a great weekend and keep me updated on your kit's arrival. I'll be crossing my fingers for you!!

  3. Hi Teri! Me again. Just wanted to thank you for helping to broaden my vocabulary. Now I'm off to look up, patina. It pays to blog with an english teacher!! ;)

  9. I meant to tell you before, but I LOVE the new header. It's so awesome to have something unique just to you. Love the layers and detail she put into it.


If you type something below it will make the sun shine and the flowers bloom and all the world's children sing hand-in-hand. If you don't, someone, somewhere, will kick a puppy. You don't want to have that on your conscience, now do you?
