The sun is shining,
the garden is growing,
school is out,
and I'm with my sweetie!

What can be better than this???

(No, seriously, what? WHAT?!)

This was a fun batch of atcs to make--I really
like the quotes. The first one is probably my

sorting through the art room (giveaway!)

Oh, yes, there may be enough ephemera here to
collage the entire world! So, it's definitely time
to share, right? Right!

BUT I'm not the only one feeling shareful--
check out this beautiful collage sheet:

Like it?

Want it?

You can have this collage sheet for freebie,
just by signing up for the Altered Pages newsletter, or by
e-mailing the lovely Jackie at
Altered Pages.
The first 100 people to respond will receive the Serendipity
sheet to print via e-mail. PLUS, if you feel like shopping
a little while you're there, here's a $5.00 coupon code
good for ANYTHING, digi or otherwise (except shipping):

That's a coupon code that makes sense! Heck, $5.00
off, no minimum, that's pretty sweet. ALTERED.
Feel free to pass that around, it's good for this
week only.

My personal bloggy type giveaway is for a packet
of ephemera and ribbons and lace and fibers--
pretty much anything I can fit into a manila
envelope, one of those that hold 8 1/2 by 11ish.
So, if you're into any paper arts (collage,
ATCs, inchies, handmade cards, scrapbooking),
and would love a fun pack of goodies to spring
inspire you, just leave me a (kind) comment.
For an extra entry, you can follow this blog,
and leave an extra comment saying you already do,
or that you are a new follower. If you contacted
Altered Pages for the Serendipity page, you can
leave another comment for a third entry!

Bloggers all over the whole wide world are welcome
to participate, but please leave a valid e-mail
address, so I can easily contact you if you win.

No picture (yet) of the goodies, but so far the packet
a couple packages of new rub-ons
vintage textbook pages
vintage book pages
vintage postage stamps
shimmery light blue cardstock
ribbons, lace, trim, fibers
random collage images
some gorgeous textured cardstock
an unmounted rubber stamp

AND I'll keep adding until the envie is as full
as it can possibly be! Sign-ups end midnight,
Sunday the 9th, and I'll contact the winner
Monday. I'll eventually visit everybody,
because I'm just such a blog snoop! So, be
expecting me to stop by and leave a comment
or two . . .

Sharing is good.

Happy Spring!
