I won a contest!

I've been telling you for the past few weeks that I won a contest but didn't want to tell you about it until the prize arrived.  By now you've probably thought sure you did *wink wink* and I have to tell you that hurts.  Just kidding!

Today the prize arrived:

The box was sitting in the garage when I arrived home today.  Man was it dusty!!  And heavy!!

So what is this contest you ask?  The Creating Keepsakes Handmade Accent contest!  I entered these flower embellishment in the contest and I was soooo excited to learn I was one of 5 winners!

I did have these cuties listed in my Etsy shop but they have since sold.  There are lots of other fun things in my shop so go take a look!

Back to the contest.  The prize for the contest was listed as "more than $250 worth of paper".  See why I entered?  That's a lot of paper and for a paper lover like me, too good to be true.

Here's what it looked like when I opened the box:

And here's a close up of the letter:

There is so much paper in the box it's just unreal!!  There are several 12" x 12" paper stacks from DCWV:
  • Nana's Nursery Stack - girl
  • The Linen Closet Stack
  • The Metallic Stack
  • The Music Stack
  • The Madly in Love Stack
  • MI CASA Stack
  • The Glitter Card stock Stack
  • The At Home Stack
  • LA CREME Stack
  • The Value Stack -Card stock
  • The Card Stock Stack - Textured Neutrals
  • The Latte Stack

There's also paper (card stock, patterned paper and die cuts) from:
  • Glitz
  • Stampin' Up
  • Anna Griffin
  • doodlebug Design
  • American Crafts
  • Basic Grey
  • Creative Memories
Here's a look at the whole stack of paper once I removed it from the box:

I just bought a third paper organizer because the two I had were full . . . I think I should have bought a few more!  I can't wait to look through this stack of paper again and to see what I can make with it.

I don't think I'll ever have to buy paper again!  Ahem.
