.... well, I knew that would get your attention!! :O)

Before I announce the winners I personally want to thank all of you who hopped along the Recipe Blog Hop and those who participated in all the challenges! And many many many THANKS to my wonderful designers as well!!

This was suppose to be in line with my grand opening of my new store PAPER CUPCAKES, but unfortunately it did not go live that day, but it did open a few days later, although all of you were probably out Christmas shopping while I was freaking out! I would love it when you slow down from this busy season to stop by and take a look around, or maybe you might need a break from all the business now which would be a great break just to do some mindless looking at my images and possibly some shopping :O). Remember you can't purchase these images ANYWHERE else! I am so excited to continue to bring you freebies as well, so help support me, get my name/images out there and send all your friends to my store. I will be building on my images monthly. Remember I am a one person show when it comes to designing these images. I have about 90 images to start out with and already have some new ones to add. Which I will be doing monthly. I have to say I am really excited. You can find Paper Cupcakes here.

OK.. now on to the winners!!

I need all winners to send me an e-mail to magicintheair@att.net. Please indicate your full name and reference the give-a-way that you won in the subject line so I will catch it in my e-mails.
