Upcycled Pocket Journal, Sheer Bribery, and Blog Candy Giveaway!

Yup! That's what this post is all about! LOL!

I was over at Melody's blog yesterday when I saw that she had posted this amazing kit! I got all excited and went over to AMR to tell them about how much I wanted it! LOL!

WELL....it just so happens that she is giving THREE of them away!!!!

I REALLY want one of these and I don't have a Sam's club membership, so I've decided to bribe you to help me out! LOL!

Last night I was playing with some paper and I made my very first Upcycled Pocket Journal!!! Because I am an avid paper crafter I, of course, have a bin full of scraps by my desk at all times. Sometimes they get used, and sometimes they don't, but I decided that this is a fantastic way to use those!!! Although, I think I am going to use junk mail to make on now, too, because it was WAY fun to make!

I used a freebie deck of playing cards (well, not the whole deck...just two cards, actually) as the covers and then I used the scraps cut to size for the pages. I can drop this little book in my purse and have something to write down all of those "OH! I need to jot that down!" thoughts that come through my mind so very often.

Here it is:

I was super excited because it was the first time I got to really use my Bind It All that I saved up for!!!! I love this thing! It is going to be a wonderful and much used tool in my stash!

My Pink BIA!

SO....Here is the Blog Candy Part!!!!

I want to give away one of these upcycled journals! You won't get this one...I will make one JUST for you! BUT...that's not all! For every 50 comments I receive I will add one more item to the envelope. THEN...if I win Melody's Kit...I will add something else...something really good!

So...Here is how you can win:

1. Comment over at Melody's Sofa on THIS post and tell her that Jingle sent you!

2. Come back here and let me know that you commented over there! (Yes...I can check...)

3. For two extra entries into the contest post a link to my blog along with info about this giveaway on your blog (feel free to use my photos if you would like) or on a Message Board. (AMR and CKMB don't count because I will be hitting both of those.)

4. For one extra entry post on a message board other than the two I frequent (AMR and CKMB) about this contest with a link to my blog!

Be sure to leave your name so I can tell who you are! I will announce the winner here on my blog!

This contest will be open until Melody Chooses a winner!

Spread the word! I know...I'm shameless, but I REALLY want this kit! LOL!
