A Million Memories – Giveaway for Basic Grey Granola Papers
School is back in session. A lot of us have little ones that started Preschool and Kindergarten this year. Tuesday was my daughter Chloe’s first day of Kindergarten. I dropped her off and then walked home crying like a baby! LOL. I’m grateful for this day. I want to celebrate, so I’m going to give you all a chance to win this new paper collection by Basic Grey.
Here’s the catch (yah, there’s always a catch) ~ tell me something that you are thankful for. I am thankful that my daughter is in remission after battling 9 months of intensive chemotherapy to fight Leukemia. I am thankful that she was able to start Kindergarten on time. I am grateful that she has already made a few friends at school and that she comes home happy and ready to do her homework assignments with a smile.
I will choose a winner next Tuesday night, September 9th, so please be sure and stop by here if you would like a chance to win.
