Happy Friday everyone!! :o) It’s Kylie here…and I am very excited to be with you for today’s special post!
If you have been following the blog…you probably know that we (the blog) recently had our 2nd birthday…and our beloved Shabby Shoppe celebrated its SEVENTH birthday! hip-hip-Hooray!! So, to help us celebrate we invited one and all to play a couple of ‘party’ games. Whooo hooo!! ;o) Well…sooooo many of you joined in the fun & games…and that of course made our birthday all the more special - THANK YOU, THANK YOU for being part of our special month-long birthday celebrations!! It just wouldn’t have been the same without you! :o)
The time has come to finish up our two games…but not before I hand out some PRIZES!!!
There were bunches and bunches of fabulously sweet comments and favorite blog posts linked-up for our little Link-A-Post game…and here are our three random ‘WINNERS’ using our friend Mr Random:
Comment 6: abyhunter linked her favorite blog post ~ “Stripes to Plaid”

CONGRATULATIONS, girls :o) You should have each received a $10 gift card to the Shabby Shoppe (be sure to check your SPAM folders) via email – & have fun shoppe-ing :o) AGAIN, thank you SO much, to everyone, for taking the time to play Link-A-Post! It was lovely to see which blog posts have been your faves and your reasons why…you’re all sooo sweet! And if you are interested…here is a lil’ Link-A-Post trivia! LOL!
So many of you said it was too hard to choose…because you love them all (well, I totally agree!!!)
Jenelle’s fantabulous Scrapping Imperfect Photos was your fave favorite!!
There have been exactly 500 blogs posts (yes…Jenelle’s Thursday Thievery post yesterday was lucky number 500!!) published since May 2010!
24 different posts were linked as favorites…across all the different categories – learning new things with tips & tricks, focus on photos, food stuff, hybrid projects…being inspired and motivated to scrap your heart out as a result of a variety of inspiration posts, our special guests, amazing LOTW’s, gallery girls, template challenges, projectSCRAP…and fun freebies!! ;o) The Shabby Shoppe Blog is here to inspire and it’s beyond awesome to know that we are doing just that!
I want to also take this opportunity to THANK all those that played Shabby Squiz…our second party game!! Y’all are SQUIZ-STARS!!! :o) I received heaps of emails - WOW, it was hard to keep up with the demand! LOL!!
