And the Blog Candy Winner is.........? Willow's Big Blog Candy Surprise!

303 Entrees into my Mega Blog Candy 2 Week Challenge!
Hello Everyone!
.......
So I have some musings on Blog Candy.
.......
Things I have learned about a Blog Candy Give Away:
1. You will meet sooooo many wonderful stampers and bloggers during a 2 week Blog Candy give away you would never have met any other way!
.......
2. You can make some neat friends from doing a Blog Candy give away!
.......
3. When doing a 2 week Blog Candy give away you need to keep up with the daily comments and amount of entrees you get for the Blog Candy........
.......
It took me almost 3 hours today to go through all the comments and make slips of paper for each person and the amount of entrees they got into the Blog Candy.
It was so worth it though because it gave me a chance to remember each comment and the person who left it and gave me a chance to re-visit some of their wonderful Blogs again!
.......
4. Your 4 year old Daughter and you can have an afternoon of fun making the Blog Candy Draw Pile! Willow came up with so many cute idea's and she said so many cute things I wish I could share them all with you!!! She melted my heart and I am glad I got the chance to spend this time with her!!!!! She was so excited as you will see in the pictures below!!!
.......
5. I learned not to do a Blog Candy Challenge during a Holiday period again. But.... in my defense it was to celebrate 5,000 hits in 7 weeks of blogging, and it fell during a Holiday period so how could I have done it differently????? LOL!!!!!
.......
Blog Candy Yummies:
1. I read each and every one of your comments daily and I enjoyed them so much! Thank you to everyone who participated and I hope I will still get to see you around my blog even though the candy is over! I hope you enjoyed my Stampations while you were here!!!!
.......
2. I was introduced to so many wonderful blogs and bloggers, stamping projects and stamps I would never had the chance to see without having the Blog Candy Challenge!
.......
3. I had my eyes opened to new techniques, idea's, and stamping things from all over the world!!!!
.......
4. I did this Blog Candy to celebrate 5,000 hits, but I am sure I received more than all of you did just through your kindness during the challenge!!!
So with no further Adu here are the pictures of our Drawing!
.......
I separated all the names into piles of 20 to see how many there were. 253!
Willow and I pushed all the little Piles together to start mixing them up!
Willow getting ready to do her jumble the names (as she called it)
Willow throwing names into the air over and over! She had so much fun doing this!!!! For those of you that notice the black mouth, no here teeth are not all black she was eating an Oreo Cookie!

After her Jumble the Names all up she picked them all up and put them into a bowl.

Then she jumbled them again and began to draw the name.

Now for our Surprise. Willow decided that with this many names there could not be just 1 winner! So she picked 4 (four because she is 4 years old!)

.......

1 Winner gets the Mega Blog Candy Pile, and 3 others get a Stamping Up stamp set. I will get the pictures of the other Stamp sets up later today!

The Winner is.....

Mega Candy Pile: Cheri Howard!

Stamp set #1: Katrina from Sweden!

Stamp set #2: Regina from Germany!

Stamp set #3: Janna Hull from America!

Congratulations to those who won!!! Thank You to everyone who played along with me!!!! Please come back again!

.......

Love to All!
