Birthday Bash Weekend - First Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Winner listed at bottom.


To celebrate Beautiful Blog Designs turning one, I am giving away gift certificates from designers who have been very supportive and encouraging to me through my first year.





Our first giveaway is for a $15 gift certificate for design work by April at April Showers Blog Design. BBD wasn't live more than a month or two and April was already showing me "love." Her continued excitement and support for the growth and development of BBD has meant a lot to me - thank you, April!

Please stop over at her site and view her portfolio. She is a very talented designer and creates most all of the graphics herself. She has a wide range of services and products, so use the winner can use the $15 for whatever suits her needs most. And, honestly she is also a fun blogger to follow. Her posts are lively and "real."

Now, I have come to love short, simple giveaways so this won't be a long and complicated one to enter. Here are the giveaway specifics:
  • To enter simply leave me a comment letting me know how you use BBD (to get inspiration, for tutorials, for the designer list, etc.)
  • The giveaway will close Saturday at 11:00 PM EST
  • Winner will be chose via Random.org
  • Only one entry per person
  • You must claim your prize within seven days, via an email to April, or it will be awarded to another blogger.
Congratulations to Robcalfamily who was our winner with comment #13!

    I love April Showers - she's currently working on a blog layout for one of my blogs (I have two) and I have some more work for her to do when she's done with this one...I love this site for the tutorials and the layouts. The layouts actually help me in designing some of my crafts that I make and for scrapbooking ideas....funny how inspiration can come from odd places. lol
