It's Time For My Open House /Valentines Day Give Away!!!

I wanted to have a sweet and special "open house" give away to say thank you to all my e girls for supporting my brand new blog! What could be better than cake?! Look at these "slices of cake" that my friend Cheryl makes! They're cute fabric covered boxes with yummy fabric and trims inside! { All photos courtesy of Cheryl.}

Cheryl didn't intend for these boxes to be used for permanent storage for your trims but I think the slices are so cute that I would try to open them veeeeery carefully to try and save them!

This give away will have a first and second place. Irst place will be the small, medium and large box you saw above.

When Cheryl found out that these slices of cake were for a give away, she included an EXTRA piece of cake and some extra trims too! Thanks again, Cheryl! So the small poka dot slice below and some extra trims (not pictured) will be for the second place winner!

Cheryl was one of my Sweet Six Art Retreat instructors and she's always making the cutest things for her shops! These cake slices came from her Etsy shop HERE.

Okay, now on to the details! Just leave a comment on THIS POST to be entered in the give away. On Feb. 13, I will draw the first and second place winners. (It will be so hard to choose only 2!!!!) I will then announce the winners on Valentines day. I don't plan on "advertising" this give away but it's open to all girls and girls at heart.
Are you ready?
