Happy Birthday Tanner!

Here is Tanner blowing out the candles on his cake last year.
(three years old)

If you are reading this on Friday, September 5th...it is Tanner's 4th birthday! As you can see, I did not have time to create a video this week, so to celebrate Tanner's birthday.....

It is blog candy time!

I haven't chosen the candy yet. I am going to let Tanner go to my scrap supplies and pick some Jolee's stickers, handmade cards, marker, etc. It is going to be mystery blog candy.

All you have to do is leave a comment on how you found my blog, i.e. a friend told me, surfing the net, you are related to me....LOL! I will pick a winner with the random number generator and post the winner with my Tuesday post. Good luck!
Edited to add: When I woke up this morning, I remembered how much Tanner loves my video tutorials. SOOOOOOOOO I am going to add a DVD of some of my video tutorials to the blog candy! BTW, Tanner was up at 6:30 am this morning. I think he is excited about his birthday. LOL!

I hope you have a great weekend! I will eat a piece of cake for you :-)

Happy Stamping!
