Blessed To Be A Blessing GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to my first ever blog giveaway!

I have felt God putting a giveaway on my heart this week and so I am jumping in!  I turn 28 years old on Friday (Friday the 13th!!! -- also, I was born on Friday the 13th) and I have felt God laying a phrase on my heart for this next year of life -- Blessed to be a Blessing.

I don't know what the Lord has planed for this upcoming year, but this is my first birthday as a married woman -- and married to the most wonderful man in the world!  Furthermore, this is the first birthday I have been excited about in about 10 years.

Things haven't always been so great on past birthdays -- bed news has been received or tragic events have happened.  Several years of that led me to almost dread my birthday.

Not this year!  I am overjoyed to be married to my hubby and I'm welcoming the upcoming year of life as his helpmate and partner.  And the Lord keeps whispering to my heart over and over "Blessed To Be A Blessing" -- 28 years old, and I will be blessed to be a blessing.

That being said, I am ending my 27th year and beginning my 28th year with a BLOG GIVEAWAY.

The PRIZE -- $20.00 certificate to Lauren Casper's graphic print or blog design shop

Lauren's Blog

Lauren and her husband, John, adopted a son from Ethiopia about a year ago and they are currently in the process of fund-raising to adopt a second child from Ethiopia.  She has a blog, Love Made A Family, a graphic print shop, ONE 17 and a blog graphic design shop, L.C. Graphic Design.  Head over to either shop site to check out all that she sells.

Personally, if I were to win, I would put the $20.00 credit toward a new blog design... or maybe this beautiful print with scripture from Hebrews:

  1. Wonderful giveaway. I love the Love Never Fails from Lauren's website. I got married on December 30th and this passage is one that I always keep close to my heart.

    Good luck to Lauren.

  2. I love that you are doing this for Lauren and John. So sweet! I love all of Lauren's creations. I think I would use it to have notecards made for Taylor. Taylor would love the cupcake design found on Lauren's blog design site. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  3. How fun! I adore Lauren's things. I really like the print you linked to. One of my favorite verses.

    I adore that you are doing this for Lauren and John.

    I follow you on networked blogs :)

    and though I am late...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
